A Photographer Potterhead's Photo Tour of Potter Land LA

I made it NERDS!!!

The main reason for my recent trip to LA was a concert featuring Walking On Cars but since Ocean Eyes and I were heading to LA we couldn't miss a stop at Universal Studio's newest land, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!
I bought our Universal Studio tickets online, and when you do that, you are allowed to enter into the park an hour early. So bright and early at 8am, decked in my Slytherin pride and wand in hand, we walked through the arches of The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter!
The best part of arriving at the park as soon as it opened, there was hardly anyone around! I was able to take a ton of pictures without people interfering!
Our first stop had to be Hogwarts castle for the Forbidden Journey ride. I had already been to the park in Florida and everything was pretty much identical, but it had been years so it was all new again! Plus Ocean Eye's had just watched Harry Potter for the first time a few months ago and it was so adorable to see him recognize a few things and just be excited for me!
There was NO line for the ride. But I still took my time walking through the castle, taking all the pictures, pointing out all the things and just being a super nerd! FYI Ocean Eyes is Ravenclaw!

This was the first time that I had ever seen a picture of Salazar Slytherin and Godric Gryffindor!
 Must be...SLYTHERIN!
Immediately following the ride, which I almost got sick on! Ugh motion sickness, Ocean Eyes cheered me up with a Butterbeer! The line for that wasn't even in existence yet so we walked right up! It was delish!!
 Honeydukes is as colorful and wonderful as in the film.

I LOVED the park! It was not crowded that early in the morning, that we were able to get through everything in about an hour! So major tip is go during the week and take advantage of buying your tickets online and getting that extra hour!

Have you nerds been yet?! Notice any differences between the one in LA and Florida? I think I need to go back to Florida and compare, PLUS experience the 2nd park!

What beautiful experience! I love when the parks aren't crowded and you can take pictures around without people. I hope to be able to visit this park one day or, at least, do the studios tour in England!

Getting to experience the park without all of the people is so nice - looks like you both had a great time! I'll be back to Florida one *hopefully* in June :)

Glad it was wonderful! So great that you got to experience it without a zillion people around. :D
