Reason to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter: I read the books!

I’ve discovered traveling – of course, with my parents and grandparents – at about the same time I’ve discovered that I love to read. A lot. And as I’ve shifted from fairy tales and children’s book to adventure, travel and foreign literature, I realized that I want to see the places I’ve read about. Badly.

And now I ask you: has reading the Harry Potter books make you want to travel? Are these books that inspire travel ? I can surely say they are. As I’ve read the books, my travel feet itched. I wanted to see anything and everything linked to the adventure. This March I’ve visited London and I can certainly blame J.K Rowling for this addiction.

But how about planning a vacation at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando? Located within the Universal Orlando Resort, this magical world offers three interesting rides: Dragon Challenge, Fight of the Hippogriff and The Forbidden Journey. You can also attend three shows and, of course, shop for souvenirs.

If you want to save on flights to Orlando , consider traveling during the off-season (in September). There are typically low rates available in cheap hotels in Orlando and the crowds are also gone. Sure, you’ll have to limit this vacation to a weekend trip as you don’t want to interfere with your kids’ school program.
