While the books and movies did a fantastic job of worldbuilding, there are still tons of secrets and mysteries surrounding The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and you can experience many of those firsthand at the parks! Even the most dedicated Potterheads might not know some of these tricks and hidden treasures, so check out some of our favorite best-kept secrets of The Wizard World of Harry Potter in Orlando!\nThe Grouchy Goblin\nAddress: Gringotts Money Exchange in Diagon Alley\nWhy You Need To Go: Guests can trade their Muggle cash for Wizard money at Gringotts Money Exchange in Diagon Alley and use it anywhere in the park. While you’re there, be sure to have a conversation with the goblin at the desk! Try asking him about the dragon at Gringotts, or if he is a house-elf, and see what kind of response you get.\n View this post on Instagram Sonhar. Acho que se tem uma palavra que me define muito seria essa. Eu sonho o tempo inteiro, planejo, e luto todos os dias pra realizar. Os sonhos são lindos, mas eles foram feitos para se tornar realidade e não apenas ficarem guardamos no coração. ✨💜 “Não vale a pena viver sonhando e se esquecer de viver.” (Alvo Dumbledore - Harry Potter e a Pedra Filosofal) A post shared by Angélica Bello (@wannabeangell) on Jul 21, 2019 at 6:21pm PDT\n\nWebsite\n\nWe’re Gonna Need A Bigger Broomstick\nAddress: Mr. Mulpepper's Apothecary\nWhy You Need To Go: The old Jaws attraction sat for 22 years in the site that is now Diagon Alley, before closing in 2012. You can still find Jaws references all over the park, including a set of shark jaws in the storefront of Mr. Mulpepper’s Apothecary. \n View this post on Instagram #mrmulpeppersapothecary #diagonalley #wbstudiotour #halfgianthagrid A post shared by Heather Stanton (@shewhodares85) on Mar 29, 2016 at 12:42pm PDT\n\nWebsite\n\n\n\nSpeaking In Tongues\nAddress: The Magical Menagerie\nWhy You Need To Go: Check out the window of the Magical Menagerie store. A snake is coiled within, and it will actually speak to you in Parseltongue and English. \n View this post on Instagram [EN🇬🇧] The Magical Menagerie in Diagon Alley is a compulsory visit when you run a magical pet business. Competitive research is always necessary! And just to know you a bit better: what kind of jobs do you have? (And can you spot the niffler I am carrying? XD) • [ES🇪🇸] The Magical Menagerie es una visita obligatoria si vas al Callejón Diagón y tienes tu propio negocio de mascotas mágicas. ¡Hay que analizar a la competencia! Y para conoceros algo mejor... ¿a qué os dedicáis vosotr@s?

I can't come up with something anymore, too tired. Good night! • 3/3 All signs point to Grimmauld Place • • • Ok so I'll just keep on open-lettering it down here in the caption. If you're not interested in reading about my uninteresting, non-earthshattering and pretty random innermost ramblings, please feel free to either close your eyes, this app, or just skip ahead to the next picture. Where you might find another verbal outpour of mine... So maybe just don't read that far into my captions at all. Cheers! Moving on! So to the approximately 2 people out there (rough and optimistic estimate on my end) who read these: As you may well know I'm struggling to find my groove with this Instagram thing. Well, "struggling" might be a little overly dramatic, as it sounds like I'd put hours on end of thought into this. However, 95% of my day is taken up by leading a somewhat adult and un-social-medialized life (boring, I know), so it's not like I have a hell of a lot of time to think about editing and learning how to plan and run this feed. And I AM very aware of the fact that there is a lot of skill and knowledge and determination required to do this properly. Which leads me back to my initial problem: What am I doing here? I'm slowly running out of pictures. And when I started this I was pretty sure that by the time I've put up the coolest shots from my recent trip to Orlando (and yes, I've been putting my best foot forward. This is really all I have to offer, no gems hidden up my sleeve) I will be bored and sick of it, so I'd just stop. But I'm actually starting to like this whole thing. So now I have to figure out a new way to produce content. Puh. Wish me luck. Or even better: make suggestions for what I should do. What could be interesting? Or could I even - Merlin forbid - find a way to create some value, and make an actual contribution to this lovely community?
