I love the way Universal Orlando has such an entertaining wait line ... there was no stand-in-the-sun-and-suck-it-up here! The line leads into Hogwarts Castle by way of Mrs. Sprout's Herbology classroom complete with Mandrakes and other magical plants. From here, we entered the castle and experienced all kind of cool features ... the house points, Dumbledore's office (and a guest appearance by Dumbledore himself!), talking portraits, the Mirror or Erised, the Defense against the Dark Arts classrom, and an appearance by our movie-heroes, Harry, Ron, and Hermione.

Review of the Forbidden Journey
For Harry Potter fans, this park (and this ride) are absolute must-do events. And even for those less enthralled (or completely unfamiliar), the park is a fun and magical place well-worth the visit.
