I pre-ordered my Blu-Ray combo pack today. Walmart's got it for $23 with free shipping. I can't wait to see all the special features and behind the scenes stuff. Anybody else counting the days like me?

We are!!!  We pre-ordered from FYE but think it was closer to $29?  Off to find receipt....may need to switch or see if they will match Wally's price.

 

 

We also just got back from Universal and the HP park was amazing! It was really cool to "play" Quiddich.

*squeal* I AM SO JEALOUS!!!!!!! We're trying to decide between Islands of Adventure and a Disney cruise for our vacation next year. I soooo want to go to the Harry Potter thing, but I also want to go on the cruise because taking a 1yo to an amusement park is kind of a hassle (been there done that!). We may just have to do both - head down a day early for our cruise and spend the day at the park.

GO!!!  It was so much fun!!!  We did a week at Disney but took a day for Universal.  Very crowded but worth it!

 

If you can spend the night spring for universal hotel.  Right now you only get express entry to the HP rides if you are staying in the park so while its cheaper off the park it would be so worth to skip the lines!

SPOILERS! Deleted scenes...

Didn't wait for my birthday! We watched it yesterday, thoroughly enjoyed it.

Deleted scenes! Dh wondered what cut to make room for the Harry/Hermione dance, it was those two great scenes with the Dursleys! What a shame. They filmed a scene where Harry and Aunt Petunia are standing in the empty 4 Privit Drive, and Petunia points out that she lost a sister to Voldemort. And they also filmed a scene where Dudley shakes hands with Harry and sasys he doesn't think Harry is a waist of space.

Seriously, those scenes should have been included.

Someone moved my effing cheese.

I'm still waiting. greensad.gif When I ordered the movie, I was under the impression that it would arrive on the 15th. I got an email that I probably won't get it until TUESDAY! Totally sucky!
