It's finally open!

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is finally open in Orlando, Florida!  Today was opening day for Harry Potter World and I was very excited.  I rushed to work to try and watch the live stream of opening day activities.  Unfortunately I was unable to connect to the live feed.  But lucky for me, there are plenty of YouTubers out there that captured the video! I spent about 30 minutes this morning catching up on everything I had missed. Thursday was the celebrity preview where the actors from the series were there and they did the big reveal, fireworks and all.  Today was opening day, where it was officially open to the public. Again the actors, such as Daniel Radcliff (Harry), Rupert Grint (Ron), and Tom Felton (Draco) were all on hand to welcome visitors. I was surprised that Emma Watson (Hermione) wasn't there but she did a preview tour around the park a few weeks earlier - I guess that was planned because her schedule wouldn't allow for her to be there opening day.  Either way, the park is now officially opened! I was so excited watching footage and I can't wait to be there myself. Our trip is booked and we will be in Island of Adventure in Orlando on Thursday, September 9th and you best believe I'm making a beeline straight for Harry Potter World! I've purchased a handy new backpack to carry my fancy new camera in and I'll probably spend more time taking pictures of everything and pictures of myself with everything than actually enjoying the rides.  But that is where cut the line passes will come in handy! I am super stoked and I really wish I could have been there for the big opening!  Check out the video below for the official opening day festivities and welcoming the first guests into the park!
