Today was a cloudy day and somewhat cooler. I prefer this weather than hot and humid. And I was just hoping that it will not rain. Well it did not until closing.

I would think that the most popular attraction in the Island of Adventure was the Wizarding World. When we got to that attraction, the place was so packed that you could not even move. The first line we went to was a let down, I thought there would be some show of some sorts but when we got in after almost two hours of waiting, it was just a wizard trying to help some kid get a wand by recreating a scene from the movie when Harry got his wand. After the five minute show or demonstration or whatever it was, we exited out the store, just perfect to setup people to buy souvenirs. We could not even get out since it was that crowded, reminded me of a train ride in Tokyo during busy hour. When we got out of the store, my wife and I looked for a place to sit down and wait for our kids. I sampled the butter beer and tried both and they were too sweet. I guess it did help me go through the entire day. Cannot leave the Harry Potter world without buying stuff, my son bought a wand. Which was too much for a piece of plastic.

Later that night, it rained on our way out of the Island of Adventure. You can click the picture above or you can click here to see more pictures.
