The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Wizards, Witches, and Muggles unite!  Where can you all come together in one place?  The Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Our family has some huge Harry Potter fans and we loved watching them enjoy every moment of it. We started in Diagon Alley where the story begins during Early Park Admission. Crowds were low during that time so we were able to ride Escape from Gringotts with no wait. We also explored all the shops and alleys while crowds were low. My son was loving every single moment!  It was like watching a ping pong ball bounce around. It was a totally immersive experience, feeling like i was actually in the movies. After exploring a bit, we went to Olivander’s in Diagon Alley to watch the wand choosing ceremony. My son was chosen to be part of the show. He was given a few different wands before the right wand chose him. 

Unfortunately, that day the train was not running so we walked over to Islands of Adventure.  Once we walked into Hogsmeade, we explored the shops and wand magic spots for the newly purchased wands. We ate lunch at Three Broomsticks and it was amazing!  Because of my allergies, I had emailed with a chef ahead of time so I was able to eat with my family. The meal was so delicious. After some more time exploring Hogsmeade, we rode forbidden Journey in Hogwarts Castle, Flight of the Hippogriff and Hagrid’s Magical Creature Motorbike Adventure.  My favorite ride was Hagrid’s. The rollercoaster was amazing! It was a little bit like Expedition Everest when it went backward but most of the ride was completely new and never experienced anything like it before!   

We loved our time in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It was a fun place for us all to enjoy!  The wizard, witch and muggles all enjoyed it and hope to be back soon! If you have a Harry Potter fan in your life, make the time to go!  You will not regret it!!

D-Luxe Burger

D-Luxe Burger

Over the last few years Disney has welcome a host of new restaurants to the new and improved Disney Springs. There are so many to try with a range of flavors and types of cuisines. While we have begun to work our way through them, I’m a sucker for a great burger and for that reason, D-Luxe Burger keeps getting my business!

D-Luxe Burger is centrally located at Disney Springs making it easy to get to no matter where you are! They also offer mobile ordering which is a big plus considering there is not a ton of seating (especially indoors).

Depending on the time of day, the line can wrap all the way out the door. You can check out the menu in advance on the My Disney Experience App or on the menu outside the restaurant.

Burgers and fries are sold separately so if you are on the dining plan be prepared to pay extra but the portions are pretty large!

The burgers here are moist and delicious…and hot!! Plus just like the fries, the burgers are HUGE!!! If you plan on heading to Sprinkles after (or any other number of delicious dessert spots) be sure to save room!

And don’t forget to grab some dipping sauces while you are there!! They offer: Three-Mustard and Honey • Garlic Ranch • Curry Ketchup • Chipotle Mayo • Horseradish • Buffalo

And while we are typically too full from our burgers to enjoy them, D-Luxe Burger offers a variety a artisan milkshakes…including some JUST for the adults!

If you are looking for a great, hot meal for the whole family, be sure to add D-Luxe burger to your list! And don’t forget it if you are mobile ordering…there is a secret menu!!
