April 7, 2016 will mark the official first day that Harry Potter’s Wizarding World opens at Universal Studios in Hollywood. However leading up until that glorious day are “test” run days. Currently, if you have an annual pass that qualifies, you can sign up for a preview day of Harry Potter and get in an hour and a half earlier than the rest of the patrons. It’s a really great opportunity to see the area when it isn’t so crowded.
I’ve been to Hogsmeade a few times now. It is truly a magical place. You really feel like you’ve stepped into another place and time. The snowy capped buildings almost make you forget that you’re in California.
One of the first things I recommend doing is heading into the Three Broomsticks for a bite to eat. The food is rather quite amazing, if I do say so myself. I’m still working my way through the menu, but so far the pot pie was pretty spectacular. Today I tried the Bangers and Mash, another amazing item on the menu. Yet no meal is complete without a Butter Beer, whether it be cold or frozen. You don’t even need to be in the Three Broom Sticks, you can find it outside in one of the Butter Beer barrels. The foam that sits on top of the drink is so tasty, you’ll crave it.
There is so much more on the menu and once i’m able to have tried it all I will share with you all my experience. I’m sure it will be good. If you make it there before me, let me know what you think!
