Harry Potter is the only reason why I wanted to go here! I’ve been a major Potter-head since forever and one of my main goals for this trip was to see Hogwarts and taste butterbeer.

I was very much excited to experience everything here but a little advice, you should definitely skip the 3D rides. They’re all in Japanese and if you don’t know any Japanese, it’s a total waste of time. This disappointed me very much because I was quite excited for the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey ride but maaaaan I couldn’t appreciate it! I couldn’t understand what they were saying. T_T

There’s really not a lot of pictures for this day because Mike and I enjoyed falling in line and riding the attractions. Here’s a bunch of tips that I hope you find helpful when you plan your trip.

Tips:

  1. I highly suggest going to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter first before exploring the rest!
  2. Once you’re in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, take your time as you enjoy Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, and the whole atmosphere! (especially if you’re a Harry Potter fan)
  3. Try butterbeer. Try on the robes (we saw people trying it on without buying lol but we didn’t have the balls to ask).
  4. There’s this humongous turkey leg – you should try it!
  5. I’m a fan of crazy rides that’s why I enjoyed: Hollywood Dream – The Ride, Hollywood Dream – The Ride – Backdrop, and The Flying Dinosaur. Just thinking about it makes me happy. You should try it because it’s one heck of an experience!
  6. Enjoy the food! We opted to have a proper sit-down lunch but the park offers a lot of food that you can eat on the go.
  7. Bring your own water bottle. It’ll save you money since there are fountains everywhere.
  8. ENJOY EVERYTHING – even if you’re waiting in line for an hour already. Remember to remain positive and you will have your turn too!

    1. The butterbeer was expensive! HAHAHA. We didn’t try it kasi tag tipid na kami. Medyo pricey din kasi talaga lahat. 😦 I guess that’s just another reason to go back diba 😉

  2. omg these are all true!!!! like ate girl parehong pareho ng nasa isip ko!

    1. I highly suggest going to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter first before exploring the rest! (like run as fast as you can kasi if not hindi mo na maeenjoy kasi crowded na, we ran and first batch in line kami yay)
    2. Once you’re in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, take your time as you enjoy Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, and the whole atmosphere! (especially if you’re a Harry Potter fan) true true true!

    3. Try butterbeer. Try on the robes (we saw people trying it on without buying lol but we didn’t have the balls to ask). I did try the robes without buying them and the wands too! kiber kasi ang mahal!
    4. There’s this humongous turkey leg – you should try it! (Sa jurassic world to no? hehehe)
    5. I’m a fan of crazy rides that’s why I enjoyed: Hollywood Dream – The Ride, Hollywood Dream – The Ride – Backdrop, and The Flying Dinosaur. Just thinking about it makes me happy. You should try it because it’s one heck of an experience! (Spider-man is a must too and I love Backdrop kahit Japanese sya lok)
    6. Enjoy the food! We opted to have a proper sit-down lunch but the park offers a lot of food that you can eat on the go. (I’ve tried Harry potter meals and ate a lot sa Minion park 🙂
    7. Bring your own water bottle. It’ll save you money since there are fountains everywhere. (yes!)
    8. ENJOY EVERYTHING – even if you’re waiting in line for an hour already. Remember to remain positive and you will have your turn too (or you can purchase an extra pass so you’ll skip line plus meron pa free entrance sa something tower ba yun)

    1. We went on a weekday last October. Lines weren’t that bad plus we went really early. We didn’t need to purchase any special tickets. The ride we had to wait the longest for was Jurassic Park and the Hipogriff one.
