Josiah and his family have been reading the Harry Potter books together and were ecstatic to see the world they have been reading about come to life. Josiah arrived to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter knowing all the magical things he needed to during his time there. You’re not a wizard until you have your very own wand so one of the first stops was to Ollivander’s Wand Shop on Diagon Alley.
Josiah picked a very special wand that allowed him to perform interactive spells throughout the park. Josiah instantly saw the magic right before his eyes.
Josiah enjoyed multiple glasses of the butter beer that he so often reads about with his family. They also took a ride on the Hogwarts Express. This was of course after a stop to platform 9¾. Josiah and his family explored the park all day experiencing as much of the magic as they could. He even went to Madam Malkin’s to get his very own wizard’s robe! The inside of his robe was dark green which matched perfectly with his Slytherin t-shirt. Josiah and his sister were performing spells all over the park. There was rarely a moment that they did not have their wands.
This trip really made Josiah feel like a true wizard. His wish to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter added the spark of magic Josiah and his family needed. "Josiah seems changed after his trip. He has extra energy and goofiness." Rachel said, "All in all, a once in a lifetime experience that has brought joy to my son."
