December 14, 2023

It’s a special thing to feel all consumed by a story. When a world — whether new and exciting, or comfortable and familiar — whisks you away on the dreams of escape and captivates your attention to such a degree that everything else melts away. You find yourself wanting to reach further… immerse yourself even more. And if you’re lucky, there’s a place like The Wizarding World of Harry Potter to provide that breadth.

The McLaughlin family was recently able to live out their dreams of experiencing the wonders of both The Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Hogsmeade and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter— Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando Resort. This band of superfans had been anticipating such an opportunity, but maybe none more than son, Daniel, who was in his 11th year and eagerly awaiting his invitation to Hogwarts.

In receiving his wand at Ollivanders Wand Shop, performing spells, and riding the famed Hogwarts Express, Daniel discovered what it feels like to truly become a wizard in training.

Watch below as the whole family explores all The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has to offer.
