Day 2 - Harry Potter's Craze

We spent the day at Islands of Adventure yesterday. And we were in the middle of the Harry Potter craze / frenzy. The Harry Potter area itself was so busy they have to limit the number of people going into the area.....you have to get a "return ticket" which entitles you to go in the area at a certain time. Even when you're in the Harry Potter area the line ups take a long time ranging from 45 mins to 100 mins.  Luckily the hotel we're staying at has an Express line pass which allows us to skip the long line up and cuts down the wait.   Really worthwhile!

Everyone going through the Last Continent to get the Return Ticket for Harry Potter

Harry Potter Craze

Hogwarts Castle - a ride to through the castle

Hogsmeade

Jurassic Park Adventure - where we got soak n' wet.
Aidan's fave are Spiderman, Jurassic Park expedition, Where it took as high up and plunges as hundreds of feet and unfortunately for us we got soaked through and through. I guess that's what happens when you sit on the first row.

It was another great day. Of course a day would not be complete without a visit to the pool.
