Recently I was in Orlando for the NCTE and ALAN conferences. Yes, over 8,000 English teachers and authors all convened at Walt Disney World to talk books!!!! (BTW, I used to work at Disney as a writer/producer, and figured I have been there over 2,000 times.)
Between conference sessions, Peepy and I had a few hours to sneak away. We hitched a ride with Neal Shusterman and headed here . . .
Were exactly were you, you ask? Well, here's a hint . . . WE WERE AT THE WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER!!!!!
It was wonderous (and crowded!) . . .
And the frozen butterbeer was delish. It tasted like a slushy butterscotch concoction with a light, sweet head of foam . . .
However, we did make it inside a couple of stores . . .
Like the wand shop . . .
Everywhere, there were wizard-y sights and sounds . . .
I loved the rooftops most of all . . .
The wizards and witches were so nice!
Here's a video of the place when some Harry Potter cast members visited . . .
