Visiting Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been on my bucket list for quite some time so when I found out I’d be working with Disney World for a special holiday post, I thought what better time to head over to Universal Orlando to visit my favorite wizard friends! Here are some of my favorite photos from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Continue reading
