I was contacted by FloridaTix, to enter their Magic Orlando Tag – then I was also tagged by one of my best friends, Amy, to participate in it too! As a total Disney and Harry Potter fan, of course I was going to do it! Not only that, but we’re on an amazing Countdown to Florida, when we’ll be visiting Disney and Universal in April. If you want to enter the competition yourself, all the info is on FloridaTix website.
1. Which Hogwarts house would you be sorted into?
As I’ve often told my friends, I think I’d be just like Harry Potter – torn between Gryffindor and Slytherin. While there’s a lot to be said for picking Slytherin (I love being the Villain), I know deep down I’d pick Gryffindor. As such, officially I’d say that Gryffindor. I own both a jacket and a mug for Gryffindor and nothing for Slytherin. However I intend to make myself a dress for both houses, for when we visit Orlando.
2. Name a Disney character you’d like to have dinner with.
I would love to have dinner with Lumiere (and all the castle servants) just like Belle in Beauty & the Beast. When visiting Florida in April, the one main thing I wanted to do was have dinner at “Be Our Guest”. It would be my absolute dream to dine like Belle and of course try the grey stuff… it’s apparently delicious! Lumiere is absolutely awesome, as is Cogsworth and Mrs Potts. I think it would be so incredibly magic to be treated to a dinner as spectacular as the movies Be Our Guest scene.
3. Which Marvel superhero power would you choose?
While Harry Potter and Disney, definitely top my fandoms, Superheroes are right up there too. I’ve seen all the movies and we even own the Lego Marvel game! For me it would be hard to choose a specific power as Iron Man is by far the coolest but he doesn’t actually have a power (just an awesome suit and epic wit). Being a God like Thor would be pretty brilliant too, but I again, a Hammer isn’t really the best power. Most realistic to my personality is probably the Hulk – YOU WOULDN’T LIKE ME WHEN I’M ANGRY! Plus, it would be a good excuse to just smash stuff up every now and again!
4. If you could bring back one dinosaur breed from Jurassic Park, which would it be?
Definitely a T-Rex. I know that’s very destructive of me, but T-Rex is King of the Dinosaurs and it would be wrong if I didn’t. Not only that, but such a big and dangerous dinosaur, that has such tiny arms is pretty hilarious…
5. You can ride a dragon at the Triwizard Tournament and visit the Owlery at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, but where else would you go on a school trip to Hogsmeade?
I am a huge tea fan so no trip to Hogsmeade would be complete without a trip to Madam Puddifoot’s Tea Shop. Apparently its “the” haunt for happy couples, so I’d have to take Chris with me, but as he doesn’t drink tea – let’s hope they like coffee! I’m pretty sure I’d sneak a visit to Honeydukes and Zonko’s too.
6. A scene in any Disney, Harry Potter or Marvel movie you wish you could experience?
There are so many wonderful scenes to pick from, with those three categories to choose from. However the first one that came to mind was Rapunzel’s Lantern Scene. Every time I watch Tangled, I get a lump in my throat as Rapunzel and Flynn watch the lanterns from the boat. It’s just such a perfect moment – who wouldn’t want to experience that?
7. Name one item from any Harry Potter, Disney or Marvel movie would you want for Christmas.
A broom, without a shadow of a doubt. Seriously, how awesome would it be to ACTUALLY fly on a broom. Sure it would be nice to have a Princess Dress, a magic wand from Ollivanders, but a broom… you’d actually be able to fly and that would be amazing.
8. Name one unforgettable experience/moment you’ve had at the Orlando Parks.
I have never been to Orlando before but as I’ve mentioned, we’re going in April. Everyone is so excited and the girls are saving furiously just to make sure they have enough money saved to buy anything they want. Although Disney will be a huge part of our trip (and is of our every day life) for me I’m most looking forward to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I’m honestly so excited and I would imagine riding on the Hogwarts Express (and pretending I’m finally on my way to Hogwarts) will be the experience of a lifetime. I’m already sure that the trip as a whole, will be the most unforgettable experience I’ll ever have.
This week I’ve had so much to do – a Disney Mystery Party to write and Disney costumes to make for four of the guests (I made Snow White, Aurora, Young Anna and Young Elsa) – meaning I’ve only just got around to entering this competition. There is only one hour left in which to enter so if you think you have time – go for it!!! I tag my daughter Megan who is absolutely obsessed with Disney and Harry Potter too!
