I saw the report on the channel 6 news page -entertainment

I saw them advertising it when they did the coverage for the grand opening. It's roughly $10 or so a mug.

Can't say as I'll be the first to go, but I will be interested in hearing what the first Secrets member has to say! :yes:

TEN DOLLARS A MUG ? Quite Pricey and I wanted to try it , but for $10.00 and not even an alcohol drink, they can keep it . :lol:

Quite a few owners I know have tried it and not liked it as it is very sickly sweet.

I thought it would be as i had read something about it during the soft opening, so I'm going to steer clear of it.

butter beer? :unsure:

I'd pay $10 I've waited since they first mentioned it in the book - probalem is there is no way it will taste anything like how I imagine it

:sigh: never meet your heroes

maybe its just a bottle of bud with a nob of butter in the top instead of a lime :D

It's the drink they serve in the new Harry Potter World.

A fellow owner just went last week and wrote this:-

Then we lined up for a Butterbeer. Bleagghhhh. God, it's horrible. I mean, I didn't expect much but at $10 I thought it might not make me feel sick! I know I didn't need the souvenir mug, but...don't do it. The pumpkin juice looked better - didn't try it.

It's all down to personal taste but I realy don't think I'd like it and for $10 wold rather buy something else.

You have a point, Doc. :hug2: (Hey, meeting your heros isn't always bad! :D I met my English hero and came away more awed)! :D :hug2:

I had Barnes & Noble's version at the Midnight Party for the third book...sort of a hot buttered rum type drink...not AWFUL, but very, very sweet...Andrew and I split it and neither of us could finish it....

agreed, huge opportunity missed IMHO

I *heard* it tastes a bit like caramel. We will try it, we'll buy one and share it at that price. You just have to try it don't you.

02-07-2010, 07:01 AM
Apparently the frozen version is nicer. I will get one for all of us to try, I'm a sucker for stuff like that!

I had no clue what it was supposed to taste like. I'm ummm...not a huge Potter fan... heh, heh, heh. :redface:

I've read the first books but never did make it to the last. One of my neices however, is a HUGE fan and cannot BELIEVE that I am not madly in love with Potter. :lol:

At any rate, it's quite the place from all accounts and I do hope Universal did a great job of it. Regardless of my personal tastes, it's a story line that lends itself to an incredible recreation!

I might like one of those broomsticks though. ;) :laugh:

I wont be going to universal this year as i am not a potter fan

I love Harry Potter, and at the risk of sounding really err... anti-patriotic, I think we'd ruin a Harry Potter theme park if it was in the UK.

After a couple of years of being open, it would be staffed only with miserable teenagers needing some extra spending money who are too busy texting to notice there are park guests and they have a role to play. The ambience, the illusion and the magic would vanish.

That, and the ever-changeable weather - although truer to the Harry Potter world would make for a more uncomfortable day.

I know it sounds really sceptical, but some elements of the Great British personality are the reason I love Florida so much!
