Shutterbuttons ~ An Unforgettable Experience

If there is any blessed soul in this world who gets a golden chance to visit the ever-so-awesome Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida SHUTTERBUTTONS is an experience not to be missed. I repeat: NOT to be missed. AT ALL!

This entry belongs to the Bestie Times and the Potterhead labels

It is the ultimate place that puts you right inside the magical world of Harry Potter. We stepped inside, Abbie and I, with a very slight hint of what this was thanks to Abbie's homework (a.k.a Google searches). However, when we realized how awesome it was ... mind blown. Whooooooooshhhhhhh ...

This is the not so gigantic space inside where a very friendly staff member greets you and shows you a sample video of what they are selling. I decided not to post the video Abbie and I had made on my blog, but there are sample videos available on Youtube if somebody wants to see how brilliant this actually is. We were told we could get to act in Harry Potter scenes ... like actually BE in them. OMG I knew I had superstar potential somebody would notice someday! Of course, Abbie and I agreed to try it out and we were led into the studio room where we met another VERY excited and happy staff person. The overly joyful lady (of course they are happy, they have the most blessed job in the world!) told us we were to pretend certain scenes were happening around us against a green screen and we followed. She kept telling us what was happening and what we were expected to do. "Now you have arrived at Hogwarts and are looking at the castle excitedly ... and now you are standing near the Sirius Black WANTED! poster and one of you is there in the poster in place of Sirius .. now you're standing inside Honeydukes and you get to pick your favorite candy, and now ......"
We kept acting against the green screen as she changed scenes and told us what to do and when we were done she showed us what it looked like and asked us we wanted to buy it. HELL YEAH WE DO!!! They took about half an hour to get the DVD ready and while that happened we enjoyed in the connected shops Quality Quidditch Supplies and Weasley's Wizard Wheezes (more on those in other entries).

Seriously, if there is one thing I must insist every visitor does here it is getting the Shutterbuttons experience! YOU WILL BE MIND BLOWN!!!
