The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Orlando, USA) — detailed description, address and photo. Reviews of tourists about the best entertainment in Orlando.
One of the brightest and most interesting parks in the vast entertainment region of Orlando will not leave indifferent those for whom incomprehensible and somewhat tricky words like Quidditch, Hogwarts, Hogsmeal, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff and others like that are not just a random collection of vowels and consonants. And serve as a signal to start the process of rapid heartbeat. To put it simply and more clearly, we are talking about a huge park where the world of Harry Potter, his friends and enemies is recreated almost in the original and with the smallest details. See topschoolsoflaw for brief history of Florida.
The area of this self-sufficient mini-world is 8 hectares. And it was opened quite recently, only in 2010. It is no wonder that only the latest technologies were used in the creation of the park.
In addition to the latest achievements of scientific thought, artists and designers who participated in the creation of the film epic were involved in the creation of the “World of Harry Potter”. And of course, it was not without the participation of the writer Joanna Rowling herself – the author of Harry. So you don’t have to worry about the fact that the world of your favorite characters is practically no different from what everyone saw on the screens. For example, in one of the halls of the famous Hogwarts Castle School of Wizardry, portraits hang exactly the same and, by the way, no less talkative than in the movies. And on one of the streets, despite the eternal and very warm, to put it mildly, Florida summer, a real Christmas atmosphere reigns. And on the roofs of half-timbered houses lies quite a natural-looking snow.
In the World of Harry Potter, every tourist will have a unique chance to taste butterbeer at Three Broomsticks and buy a magic wand at Ollivander’s Store.
The journey will begin with the fact that you will be offered to board a real Hogwarts Express, which is heading for the village of Hogsmeade. You will have a unique chance to taste butterbeer at Three Broomsticks and purchase a magic wand at Ollivander’s Store. In the center of the park rises the majestic Hogwarts – the school of witchcraft and wizardry, next to which you will find the Whomping Willow and a greenhouse with screaming mandrakes. Here you can visit the pubs in which the heroes of the work sat and skip a pint or two of pumpkin juice. In the “World of Harry Potter” there really is a complete immersion in the world of Harry Potter, the main thing is not to lose touch with reality at all.
