After battling jetlag, I finally got out of my bed and went out of the house. Lol I bought a Universal Studios Annual Pass from Costco for USD 110. The one day pass for that day was USD 105 so I just got the annual pass. I can still remember back in 2004-2007ish, day passes were only USD 39 for California residents and they would have a promo of buy one day and get the whole year free. I can’t believe it has almost tripled now but nonetheless, people are still flocking into the park especially now that the Harry Potter World has opened.
The last time I was in LA, the Harry Potter World was still closed. I just took this photo after exiting the studio tour back when I visited on January 2016. I told myself that I had to go back again this year to visit the newly opened Wizarding World of Harry Potter…

I mean, who doesn’t want to be a wizard?
I still haven’t read a single chapter of the Harry Potter books but I have seen all the movies, more than once. I especially loved the Goblet of Fire movie because it was just fun and exciting but sad all at the same time. So when I knew that we were going to London, I told my boyfriend that we should definitely go to the Warner Bros. Studios no matter how far the commute was. lol I pre-booked our tickets online a week before our date of visit. I suggest you do the same especially if you’re coming in the summer because the available times and dates were already very limited when we booked our tickets. Continue reading
