A Journey Into the Wizarding Wrold

Now it's time to tell you about another adventure I had while in the land of Florida. I took the time to step out of my happy place(Disney World) and visit another place of magic, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I'll be honest I was not thrilled about going to Universal but it's Harry Potter, yet another obsession of mine. I had to go once,but now I know I must go again and again.

After you walk to the back of the park from the entrance you do feel like you are entering into a new world. You get confused with all the snow on the building while you are sweating from the heat, but it adds the the magic.
All of the shops look amazing and so believable, I really wanted to go into the bookstore but there was no entrance for us muggles.

Eating in the Three Broomstitcks was very exciting. It looks just like the set in the movies.
This also where I had my first mug of butterbeer. Butterbeer is one of the best things I have ever tasted! It is just perfect, I wish that I could have some everyday.
The two roller coasters, Dragon Challenge and Flight of the Hippogriff, weren't anything great. They are remakes of roller coasters that were already there. But The Forbidden Journey inside Hogwarts is amazing. There really isn't anyways to describe it. It's like they took every aspect of any ride and placed it into one! This is a must.
The one thing that was disappointing was the fact that everything was kinda small, especially the shops. You had to wait in line to get into a store because they could only hold like 30 people at a time and once you were in there is was so crowded you really could see anything.

I was unable to get a good souvenir because I just couldn't handle being crammed into such a small place. I did get a Chocolate Frog though! All in all it was worth it and I will be going back again.

Disney Lolitafied!

Last week I went on a wonderful trip to Disney World with my lovely Amy! We had such a great time. We road the rides, watch parades, awed at the fireworks, and dented our wallets! We have been to Disney many times but it is amazing how we still find new things to do. For example having high tea in the Grand Floridian. If you are down as Disney World and need a Lolita day this is the place to go. Here is how our day went:
We took the bus then monorail to the Grand Floridian. Our jaws dropped as soon as we stepped threw the doors.

This resort is so wonderfully beautiful. It is a Victorian getaway!

After checking in for our reservation we sat in the main waiting area just admiring everything. I caught a glimpse of the ceiling!

Then it was time for tea! They have a large selection of teas:black, green, oolongs, and herbals. A lot of them are specially blended for just their tea house. Also they have a selection of tea meal choices. I had the Buckingham Palace(so delicious!)

I chose a Jasmine Green Tea for my pot. Yummy!

Afterwords we walked around the outside of the resort dreaming of affording to stay there.

Then we hopped back onto the monorail and stepped into the magic of Magic Kingdom. Walking along Main Street in Lolita dresses was so much fun. we even got silhouettes done!

It was a wonderfully Lolita day at the Happiest Place on Earth!

Picture By Myself and Amy!
