But now... I feel bad for making fun of these people.
We are going to Universal Orlando for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter for the third time!
Go ahead... make fun of me, I deserve it! Ha! No, seriously I do!
We went the first week it opened in July 2010. It was all kinds of PACKED. We went for half a day and we really only went for me. Reagan was 5 years old and wasn't into Harry Potter yet. Jay likes HP but doesn't love it the way I do.
Then Reagan fell in love with HP later that year. And we HAD to go back for her. I promised her we'd go back when Diagon Alley was complete.
So in November 2015 we drove back. This time Diagon Alley was open. Oh the fun we had!
My dad more than likes HP but less than loves HP. He's mentioned to my mom multiple times that he'd like to visit The Wizarding World. So she started saving money, talked to me about it to see if we wanted to go (Ummm, duh! Yes!) and then surprised my dad with the vacation. He owns his own business so she let him pick the best time for him to leave his business. Luckily the dates worked for us and we are going too! This will be our first family vacation together.
It's offical! I called in January and paid the deposit and we are all set for our third trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!
I'm planning to have these shirts made for us to wear. We've all picked which one we want to wear. And a teacher I work with is going to make them for us.
So... did you make fun of me? It's ok if you did! Ha!
