    Tonight I'm going back to Harry Potter land to get more nighttime pics and videos! They stay open until 10:00 PM all month. It's very pretty to see the light shining from Hogswart's castle and all the shops in Hogsmeade.

    I'm going to take lots of pics and more videos for my youtube channel. Yes I'll ride the forbidden journey ride also with a friend who is going.

    If you go there in the next few months, wait until after 4:00 PM or so. Everyone crowds into Harry Potter land in the morning so it gets better late in the day.

    Spend that time instead doing the rest of Islands of Adventure, which is where the Harry Potter land is. smile

    Well I had a good time last night at Potter land! However my pictures of the castle did not come out good, it was just too dark. Here's a few that came out ok though.

    I'm going at the end of august. was it crowded and hot?

      Yes it still has a lot of people. However the end of August should be a great time to go. The crowds will be a lot lighter than. Everyone runs for that place in the morning. So, enjoy the rest of the park during that time and don't go into the Harry Potter part of the park until around 3:00 PM or so.

      The Forbidden Journey ride is great, make sure you go on it.  Check out all the shops too. As for hot, it's always hot here in Florida! It will be in the mid 80's or so when you go. smile

    looks like you had fun. smile

    any florida theme park during summer will be hot.
    try for the morning or late afternoon into the evening.

    and take your own water stash. you'll drink a lot during the day.

      Yeah I have a friend who is a paramedic there. So her, her girlfriend and I ate at Margaritaville, then the two of us took in the rides as she worked the summer concert series gig.

      After she got done working we all went back home. So it works out good. I bought two butterbeers but they think it's too sweet, so I ended up drinking both! smile

    Thanks for posting this--it was fun to see the pics you've taken!

    I am a Harry Potter addict, I confess, lol...have all the books and movies, and someday I would love to go down to Florida(I'm in Ohio) and see what they've created. big_smile


    Are you going to do a hub about it?  Or have you already, and I just missed it?

      Hi Tammy, yes I have done several hubs about it, you can see them in my profile. I also have some articles about it in my site, which again you can find in my profile. The park is very well done, you will love it if you go. smile
