My Fun Adventure at the DVD/Blu-Ray Premiere of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2!" 




“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2” is one of my favorite films this year, and it’s certainly one of the best to come out in theaters this past summer. So I was thrilled to be invited to the DVD/Blu-Ray release of the movie that took place in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Orlando.

The series took us to a rollercoaster ride involving the life and times of our favorite boy wizard, so it’s just fitting that there’s now a theme park built in honor of Harry Potter. The rides are fun, but most importantly, it was bittersweet to say goodbye to the franchise, and to the actors Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint. So dear J.K. Rowling, please write another Harry Potter book, please? :happy

Take a look at my adventure inside Harry Potter land as we bid adieu.
