Its A Harry Potter London!

Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studios Tour, London

This was definitely the highlight of our time in London – for the kids AND me! What a well-done production for Potter-heads. We spent over 4 hours enjoying the studios on the sets, viewing the props and costumes, “driving” our favorite vehicles, trying our hands at simulators, enjoying butterbeer products, shopping and learning ALL about how they made movie magic with Harry Potter! The kids were decked out in their HP gear and they each picked out a wand (read on to find out who picked which wand!).  What a fun afternoon! One of the best souvenirs was the virtual flight they each took on a magic broomstick, with a green screen background and directed as if they were actors. Its so cute! Check it out here – but make sure to watch until the end!  Little Willow did great! Here’s a little gif preview…

Definitely a worthwhile, once-in-a-lifetime experience! Enjoy the photos!
