The day we'd all been waiting for had finally arrived. We were going to Harry Potter Land! That's what my kids call it and their excitement was unbridled! I have to admit that I was a little excited too but it was because I desperately wanted to try Butterbeer.
We were told to get it frozen and to get it at the restaurant not the street carts.
This worked out well because after three hours of exploring Hogwarts....we were starving! Click here to read more about our visit to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
We all enjoyed our Butterbeer very much and it was kind of like having dessert with your meal. We each got a souvenir mug which I advise against because I think they are $10 each and now I have to store them. I'd have been much happier with TWO mugs. Bygones.
Look how cool we all look with our mugs! Okay...maybe it was worth the money. If you buy the mugs...you are supposed to be able to go to any counter service restaurant in the park and get free soda refills. We didn't test this out because we forgot to bring our mugs the next day. Whoops!
Three Broomsticks is considered casual dining at Universal Studios but the food is outstanding. They do have kids meals for $5 but my son had his heart set on Ribs. They were very good and the potatoes that came with them made their way to my plate because they were better than the french fries that came with the Fish and Chips.
I love Fish and Chips and generally always order it when it's on a menu. This was an exceptional meal because the breading was very light and the pieces of fish were large. I really liked the tarter sauce too but ended up not using most of it because the breading on the fish was so flavorful that I didn't need it.
The atmosphere at Three Broomsticks is really fun! You feel like you are really in an old English Pub and if you're lucky....you'll see the house elves scurrying around on the second floor.
