penguin chick pictureHI EVERYBODY!!

Penguins don't have wizards and stuff like that, mostly cause the wands have trouble working in the cold and underwater. Such things like that are better left for muggles like Phil and Angie to explore. By the way, what IS a muggle anyway?

See you later!

Somewhat hidden in Universal Orlando is the entrance to Diagon Alley, one of two "Wizarding World of Harry Potter" exhibits featured there. The one we didn't visit is called Hogsmeade. You can take the Hogwarts Express train from Kings Cross at Universal Studios Florida to Hogsmeade Station at the Universal Islands of Adventure, and back again, which is pretty cool. If you want to their Park-to-Park ticket AND stand in line for a LONG TIME!

We didn't.
