Spring Break 2017 – Orlando: Hogwarts Express Opening Page
This six page spread is the main motivation for our entire Spring Break trip to Orlando – we wanted to ride on the Hogwarts Express train between the two Universal Studios Parks. This is the opening two page spread of a panoramic fold out page protector – I will show the interior 4 pages tomorrow.
TIP: Universal Studios Orlando Tickets: If you want the full Harry Potter Experience you must have a 2-park ticket so that you can ride the Hogwart’s Express ride between the two parks. I suggest going to Universal Studios first and ride from Diagon Alley to Hogwarts, and then make the return trip after spending time at Hogwarts. If you want to do other things in the two parks then you will really need to have a 2 day pass as it is impossible to see everything in one day.
I cut the the train and the columns using my Cricut machine. The tunnel I designed myself on Cricut Design Space, and then cut on the Cricut machine. I used a ruler and ink pen to make the bricks for the tunnel, and also hand wrote in the Hogwarts Express Engine Number. The Platform 9 3/4 cutout was purchased on Ebay, and the Griffindor patch, and the two Hogwarts Express train tickets were purchased in the gift store. After creating the spread I cut the entire thing down the middle so that the pages could open to reveal the interior 4 page spread of the amazing two journeys on the train!
