Happy Birthday, Hogsmeade!
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter grand opened to the public on this day in 2010. I was crazy enough to be in attendance to witness the madness first hand. I was even more crazy to get out of my spot in line just to film all the pandemonium that was going on behind me! We were very lucky and was able to get inside the Wizarding World prior to opening day to experience the ride and drink the Butterbeer. So I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything when we got out of line just 20 minutes before they started letting people into the newest part of Islands of Adventure. The queue of people stretched all the way from inside to the park out to Citywalk. Wrapping around both sides of the lagoon, I've never seen anything like that in my life! Check out a couple videos that I took that morning. For more theme park goodness, you can also follow me on Instagram at @magiccitymayhem!
