Today was the check-in day at the Leadership 2013 conference — a chance to check out the Gathering Place and all kinds of fun project ideas, and then this evening was the Manager’s Reception — at Harry Potter World!
Stampin’ Up! took us to Universal Studios Islands of Adventure for a private evening exploring Hogsmeade and Hogwarts Castle, and all the Butterbeer we could drink! If you’ve never had it, Butterbeer is a carbonated soda, kind of like butterscotch cream soda, and it’s served with a marshmallowy foamy head. You can pick either frozen, like a slushy, or regular cold. Let’s just say that I tried several samples of each to decide which I liked better!
We rode through Hogwarts castle past giant spiders and dementors, we went to a wand selecting ceremony at Ollivander’s, and we shopped for candy at Honeyduke’s. We even rode the roller coasters — the little Flight of the Hippogriff, and the bigger Dragon Challenge. No lines! A huge thank you to Stampin’ Up! for a fun evening!
