Hi all new here,
I have posted in the intro's section but wanted to bring this subject up, I hope it's in the right place?
Back in September last year we took a trip to Walt Disney World and as part of the trip we decided to take in the new Harry Potter section at Island's of adventure.
Now I am not a massive fan of Islands of adventure and given the news that Disney have acquired Marvel and will take over the theme park rights in a few years time I expected that that area of the park would maybe start to look a little old until they decided to re-theme it.
However, I was really disapointed with the Wizarding world of Harry Potter.
I am not a huge fan of the Potter series however we both made the effort to read the books and watch the films to get a better understanding of the subject.
The main attraction was brilliant, I must say that. It was on par with the release of Spiderman ride. Big thumbs up.
But the rest of it just felt like a re-themed area of the park. The biggest thing for me was the huge stage building behind the castle which ruined the effect for me! Just painting a building black doesn't hide it!
Maybe I was looking for things given my love for Disney but I really did feel let down by the whole experience.
Every oportunity they had, contained Harry Potter adverts and they really built it up as being this amazing area.
This isn't a knock at Universal in anyway but I think JK Rowling picked the wrong company and feel Disney would have done her books justice.
