Video: Drinking Butterbeer at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

(If this video doesn’t show up for some reason, you can watch it on youtube here)

While on the blog trip to Orlando with Virgin Holidays and Visit Florida, we visited Universal Studios in Orlando. I spent most of the day at the Islands of Adventure side, and the star attraction here is The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. 

I walked through Hogsmeade and visited Honeydukes sweet shop, then tried some Butterbeer. I think my facial expression says it all! It tasted just like…butter. And sugar. To my disappointment…it is non-alcoholic beer!

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter brings the books and movies to life. You can purchase a wand in Ollivanders, send your postcards with a Hogsmeade postmark at the Owl Post, enjoy a pint of butterbeer or pumpkin juice in the Three Broomsticks, and fill up a bag of Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans in Honeydukes.

There are several really cool rides here, including Harry Potter and the Forbidden JourneyFlight of the Hippogriff and Dragon Challenge.

Although I have only read the first Harry Potter Book and I’ve only seen the first two movies, I still really enjoyed the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and it’s definitely a highlight of Universal Studios.

Hi I'm Victoria, a British girl from Manchester. After graduating from university I decided there was more to life than the hours between 9 and 5, so I packed my journalism degree into my suitcase to travel the world and find a way to make money at the same time. I now call London home, although I still travel whenever I can. I hope to inspire you to be your own boss, live life and see the world.

    I love the woman behind you in the video while you’re drinking your butter beer. Her “Uhh, what? Who? Me?” facial expression is priceless.
