Harry Potter's Forbidden Journey - Who Knew Waiting in Line Was so FUN!

I went back to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter to and rode Harry Potter's Forbidden Journey.

However, unlike last time I stood in the regular line and all I can say is "I am glad I did." and here is why you should too.

While in most cases I hate lines and I hate waiting, this line is some much more than a line it really is part of the experience. Well let me clarify that - Once you get in the castle the experience really begins.

If you take the Single Line, you miss all this.

So what is so special about the Forbidden Journey line?
1. As you enter you get to see Hogwarts Icons
2. You get to see several rooms of Hogwarts talking portraits and hear the conversations between them. It is really cool (audio link)
3. You get a personal message from Dumbledore in his office
4. Harry, Ron and Hermione explain the ride and how they plan to sneak you into Hogwarts - (Link is mostly audio)
5. You have time to experience the Hogwarts and all the detail - and it is amazing detail

It really is a great experience. I will keep uploading videos and building out pages our Orlando Vacation site.

Muppet's Creator - Jim Henson's Fantastic World Worth the Trip to Downtown Orlando

There is something special happening at Orlando's History Center that has locals and visitors buzzing this Spring.

Jim Henson's Fantastic World is on display at The History Center in downtown Orlando. This Exhibit showcases the world of Jim Henson and the colorful world he built. it also includes weekend movies, storytelling or more.

If you love the Muppet's and Sesame Street, you will enjoy this show. In fact I am hearing positive feed back from young kids and adults.

I often tell visitors Downtown Orlando is not really a daytime destination but great for evening fun, however this type of event is worth driving downtown and skipping the theme parks for a day.

You need to know that the exibition runs until May 3rd at The History Center, but as word spreads I expect that the last weekend might be a mob scene so go early relax, laugh and enjoy.
