Don’t worry, this is not a post about how I had my identity stolen, but rather how I (sort of) stole another’s identity. I’ll explain down below. But as a short intro, I went to Harry Potter World again!
The time came for me to once again return to Universal Studios and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Hallie and Daniel joined me, and I was beyond excited! I wore my new “I Solemnly Swear That I’m Up To No Good” tank top with my Hufflepuff-clad shrug and we were ready for the day.
Obviously we hit up Harry Potter first! I had my wand at the ready to show the muggles some real magic. We rode “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey” and grabbed some Butterbeers. Hallie was a little apprehensive to try it, as the ones served at the Studio Tour in London were not great, but I assured here the ones in Hollywood were delicious and she was not disappointed!
We then ate lunch before exploring Hogsmeade a bit and hitting up the “Despicable Me” ride. We then bade farewell to Hallie before heading down to ride the tram tour. Now, since Hallie’s birthday had just occurred a week before (and she visited Universal on her actual birthday), she said that by using her birthday button, she was able to cut the line for the studio tour. Hallie gave me her birthday button to wear, and Daniel and I set out for the studio tour.
It didn’t look like they were going to let us cut the line, but fortunately I had a pass from another time at the park, so I used that. Once on the tram, the tour guide asked if it was anyone’s birthday on board. I raised my hand and said my name was “Hallie,” per the button. Multiple times throughout the tour, the guide referred to me as Hallie and Daniel was confused each time I answered back. It was actually hilarious.
After the tram tour ended, we left the park to grab dinner. I remembered that “Spitz” was just around the corner, so we headed there for some Doner Kebabs and sangria–very delicious! After that, we drove back to my apartment. Daniel was seeing some other friends, so Maria and I kicked back and watched Netflix before heading to sleep early. Such a fun day, despite being very tired from the previous night’s shenanigans. Stay tuned for my last night with Daniel!
