I once went to a Harry Potter themed party, I found it really fun! I haven’t been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios yet but I’d like to do that someday as well.

Even though I have all of the Harry Potter movies on DVD, I always insist on watching the movies when they come on TV. This happens every time there's a marathon on. I can't get enough of it.

I would really love to see the Harry Potter studio or the universal studios those poll choices are all really good ��

I haven't been to the Wizarding World at Universal yet, but I have a trip planned later in the year! I'm so so stoked. I've been to a HP themed Halloween party, as well as reading the books and discussing them in a book club. c:

Mine was having a Harry Potter movie night with friends

Having a good time with friends during watching HP movies is the best one.

I just love reading and watching harry potter.

There aren't many Wizarding World experiences in my area, so I mostly rely on the internet for them. I did visit filming locations in Oxford and loved the great hall (the London tour didn't exist back then). Next time I have a little time off I'll head on over to Porto's bookstore where they also filmed. And hopefully I'll be able to go to the London tour on my next visit :D

My favorite has to be the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. Nothing is quite as magical! I remember my jaw just dropping as soon as I walked through the Hogsmeade gates during my first visit. They truly outdid themselves. From the restaurants to the employee costumes to the music, everything makes you feel like you've jumped into the books. I just purchased a Universal Annual Pass, so I'm looking forward to spending more magical moments in the park in the months to come.

I went to a bunch of the book launches and they were tons of fun ... also movie marathons!!

Emzeer 04-05-2019 09:44 PM

The studio tour, I've been twice and I'm desperate to go again!

gritandgrace 04-14-2019 01:55 AM

I've never been to the studios (yet!), but I love the trivia nights!

harleysJoker1 04-17-2019 02:59 AM

i go to trivia nite or host them all the time and they are so much fun

Where I'm from there is a small mountain town about three hours away. Every year in September they turn it into the Wizarding World with chocolate frogs, butterbeer, music, Quidditch and even the Founders show up! Its super awesome! I cant wait to go back!!!

My favorite experience was having Harry Potter club in school as a kid.

SneakySeverusSnape 04-22-2019 02:30 AM

Mine is The Harry Potter Studio Tour. I was going to go there this year but it got cancelled!

Felix_Felicis 04-26-2019 11:35 PM

Marathoning all of the movies before the release of a new Fantastic Beasts is currently the thing that I most look forward to. I really want to do it at a cinema instead of at home to see if that experience is even more exciting.

I also really want to be able to go to Universal Studios but it's so far away. I'll get there some day!

Alavander 05-26-2019 07:54 PM

Loved going to the studios in London. Seeing all the props, the Hogwarts model at the end, trying butterbeer... actually, the butterbeer was horrid...

Slytherin Fox 05-27-2019 10:53 AM

Discussing the books and watching films with another obsessed friend (we should plan something big soon!)

I have to say that I have a special place in my heart for those midnight book premiere parties they used to have at the bookstores. I attended parties for books 5, 6, and 7, which were a blast. I actually volunteered to dress up and host games/events for the premieres of books 6 and 7, and that was even more fun! You get to really know the staff at your local bookshops this way, and it was a fun way to meet other Potterheads.

It's still on my bucket list to visit Universal's Harry Potter theme park though! I think it would be neat to plan a vacation set in the UK as well, involving tours of the HP Studio, and other locations where the movies were filmed or that served as inspiration for the books.

I used to go merch hunting with my friend who I worked with. We would meet in the parking lot and carpool to places that sold Harry Potter merch, the weirder or more obscure, the better. I also went to a Harry Potter night with my friends and got fun pictures of us together. There was a drink at Starbucks that was Harry Potter themed, and that was absolutely delicious

AbbiMarigold 07-13-2019 09:25 PM

I just love seeing everyones creations, have you ever type harry potter in etsy? Xd xxxx

HouserHouseCreations 07-16-2019 10:37 PM

All my Harry Potter experiences have been amazing - so hard to really choose.

RedRabbit 08-13-2019 01:24 AM

A good way to cheer me up has always been a Harry Potter movie marathon. A few years back I got really sick and had to spend a few weeks in the hospital. I was at a special hospital that was far from home so I was very lonely and bored. So when my family and friends asked what I would like them to bring me I was so happy when they brought me my Harry Potter movies. Between watching Harry Potter and episodes of Friends I was able to recover and go home.
