So the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is headed to San Francisco this October through May of next year. Pre-sale tickets started on Tuesday and today tickets have officially opened to the public. Well, I didn’t get tickets on Tuesday like I’d hoped and then tried again on Wednesday with no luck. But today, I tried one more time and finally scored some tickets! Woohoo!
I can’t believe how far out I have to wait for the show though. Most of the early months have already been sold out so I just randomly clicked on available dates for May 2020 and I got the tickets that I wanted. Ok, so I’m not a crazy die hard Harry Potter fan, although I did line up at midnight for the release of book 7, but I wasn’t willing to spend more than the cheapest seats available. For those interested, go get tickets!
Our trip to Universal Studios was actually fun. It was my first time ever going, and the opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter park was the thing that got me to visit. I can’t say I’m a huge Harry Potter fan, but I can say I did read all 7 books and watched all 7 movies. So in a way, I am a fan but not unlike others who go above and beyond that.
The Harry Potter park is probably my favorite part of Universal Studios. As a fan and also one who appreciates architecture, I loved walking through Hogsmeade and the castle. The spaces are well thought out and creatively designed that it’s worth a trip despite the crowds.
Below are just a few photos I took at the park. Hope you enjoy and find inspiration to go!
