We’re finally doing it! What better way to celebrate the upcoming holidays than visiting Hogsmeade at Christmastime? It’s the first time that Hogsmeade will be decked out for the holidays. There will be a music and light show projected on the castle, decorations, a holiday frog choir, a holiday dinner and hot butterbeer – yum! “It really warms you up.”
The plan is carpool together down to Hollywood and share hotel rooms. We can split the cost of gas (driver won’t have to pay since we’re taking their car) and hotel. If you have another way to get there or a place to stay, you are welcome to meet us at the park. I have a season pass, so I will be able to get discounted tickets for guests, usually about $25 off. With my pass I can also get free parking and a discount on most food and merchandise at the park that I am happy to share with you – so start saving those Galleons!
Cost: I’m estimating about $100 each for gas and hotel (depends how many per room and where we decide to stay. I’m thinking someplace pretty affordable since we won’t spend much time in the room anyways). About $80 for a ticket to the park (might be a little more with fees, etc.). Other costs will include food, souvenirs, and any other incidentals. We’ll spend Saturday at the park. I’ve talked to several people about driving up early Saturday morning. However, if there are enough people who want to leave on Friday then we can split up into two groups and those people can spend an extra night down there. We can discuss this more once we know who’s coming and who’s driving. Once we know who is going, we can continue the planning discussion offline.
Want to come but aren’t available that weekend? Don’t worry we’ll likely go back again some time next year.
So excited to do this with you!
