Cameron visits The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios!!

Harry Potter CastleCameron’s wish was unique because he wanted to go to the brand new theme park at Universal Studios that revolved around the magic of Harry Potter. When I first spoke to Cameron, who lives in Illinois and has kidney disease, I knew nothing about this magical park that was set to open in Orlando. When I found out what his wish was, I took some time to learn all about it and I can tell you that it’s really awesome!

The 18th of June, 2010 was the date of the Grand Opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Cameron and his family were there! They toured Hogwarts castle and Cameron even rode “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.” After flying on a broomstick alongside Harry Potter, Cameron went to Ollivander’s where his very own wand chose him, just like in the books! When he was asked about the trip, Cameron said that “it was awesome! This was truly a dream come true. Wow! I thought we would never leave there. It was soooo realistic!”

I’m so glad I was able to grant Cameron’s wish! This is the part of my job that I love the best. 🙂
