    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:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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:
