Final Day in Florida: Universal Studios Adventure & Hogwarts

Couple things, why the fuck did they change the recipe of the butterbeer, it tasted like garbage the day we went. That is my main complaint for the entire day at Universal, it had me so mind boggled. The foam on top was shitty as well and not that candy flavor. Bullshit. Anyways, let’s begin!

Here we go! The famous Universal people movers, gotta love them. Wish Disney would implement some cool ones.

 

Got dinner reservations here, can’t wait. Already hungry.

Fully custom Harry Potter wand holder

hogwartsseal
So I’ve got a few wands over the past few years from Hogwarts and since moving into the new house I had no idea where to put them or what to do with them since I had like 3 in a box in my closet which is not cool. Decided to hit up Hobby Lobby and grab few planks of wood, some spray paint, some bolts and make my own wand holder. After about a week of letting it dry, adding some gold, magical stuff, it turned out pretty good. Also added the map that came with the wands behind it and turned out pretty cool. This is only one want (Sirius Black) since I need to buy more bolts to attach more. Check it out below.

 

Soon as I get more of the bolts and paint them I’ll add the other two wands to the display and post an update, should look even better with more wands.

First Disney-Scented Anthology Candles Purchase

‘ve wanted some of these Disney inspired Anthology candles for awhile since I’ve seen them online, Buzzfeed, you name it and they have over 5K reviews saying they really do smell like Disney. So today I received in the mail my candles and smelt the “Rome Burning” which really smelt like EPCOT Spaceship Earth Rome burning portion of the ride and was amazed. You can also find and play the YouTube soundtrack for Spaceship earth for added effect and think you are actually there. These candles are legit and worth your $14 per candle price and they also accept PayPal.

Haunted Manor, Rome, Black Pearl, and a Wizards Sample pack are the ones I bought

Go purchase them at their website or on their etsy page. They are located in Charleston, South Carolina, when I visited there wasn’t a Anthology Candles I found so I’m guessing they don’t have a retail brick and mortar store yet.

Buy: http://anthologycandles.com

The next candle scents I’m probably going to get from them will be Soarin Over, Pineapple Whip, Main Street Bakery, and probably Churros.

 

Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, with some Diagon Alley

So lets take a trip to Orlando and hit up Disney World, Universal Studios, a wedding at the Dolphin, and various other fun places. I’ll be updating this post with my adventures to Universal Studios Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios, so check back for this update because I took some badass photos and who doesn’t love Harry Potter or Hermione for that matter. So prepare for a lot of photos! First let’s see some epic shots of flying and how we pre-game that Disney trip.

The Grand Caribe Resort

Since we were rolling with a family of 15 this time around it was a lot more feasble to stay off property and the grand caribe had all the offerings of two bedroom family suites to fit our needs. The hotel itself is large, awesome, and had great amenties and awesome suites that fulfilled our needs. All within a mile from Disney property it worked out perfectly even though we were not in our room ever unless to sleep!

This park is always SLAMMED. So small, this food however was decent, the gluten-free options were excellent and the atmosphere was epic. Butter beer and chicken and fries after a hard days walk, YUM.
