Practice English Speaking&Listening with: Diagon Alley Haul - Year 3

Difficulty: 0

Hi everyone, my name is Jade, and I just got back from Florida.

I was there for about a week and one day we drove to Orlando

and went to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, yet again. This was my third year.

They previously just had the Hogsmeade side

which was on the Islands of Adventure. They had Hogsmeade there and they added

Diagon Alley to the Universal Studios side. I had not been to that side yet, so this

was my first time

at Diagon Alley and it was amazing!

Then they've also added the train to connect the two parks.

I know there's another Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Osaka, I believe,

and it has the Hogsmeade side. And then, we

here in Los Angeles at Universal Hollywood, are getting

a Harry Potter park in the Spring so

2016 in the Spring. Hopefully early Spring.

Like the day of Spring but I will be there. If you go,

I will be there the first day. And, it is going to be

the Hogsmeade side as well. So, even after ours opens,

Florida will still be the only chance you can get to go to Diagon Alley.

That's the only one that has Diagon Alley and I personally enjoyed it. They had,

when you're first walking back, there's London, there's the Knight Bus.

Here's a picture of me with NOT Stan Shunpike. He said

he was, I think he said he was his cousin or something? I'm not sure. I should have

written it down.

He was not Stan Shunpike. He was...someone else.

And then, you go into Diagon Alley.

And once you walk in there, it is just amazing!

The Weasleys Wizard Wheezes was so cool!

I love that store!

It was just obviously noticable. When you first walk in, it's on the right.

And I got a t-shirt from there.

You will see this in a future video.

It's Weasley Wizard Wheezes.

And it has the Weasley brothers there.

And the thing you wouldn't notice about this shirt...I didn't even notice until I

tried it on, is that the front and back are different shades

of purple. Not different colors really but different shades of purple.

Yeah, there, like one is dark purple a one is like a lighter

purple. It's like a subtle difference there.

But I thought that was kinda cool cause you don't really notice it; It's not obvious.

And then there was another store, it's connected to the Weasleys Wizard Wheezes.

I don't know what it was but it sold a lot of wizard

sportswear. A lot of the Quidditch stuff and um...

I don't remember what it was called but I got the Slytherin shorts there.

They have shorts, they have these for every house and they say the house name

on the back.

So, no matter what house you're in, you could get

shorts like this. One store I thought was really cool was Scribbulus.

I don't know if that's what it was called, but they sell Scribbulus products. So, all of the journals

and parchment and quills and

ink. I chose a black quill.

I chose black for Death Eaters. And they have...

they have the quill, like the regular

type of quill and then they have a ball point pen

quill. So a quill with a ball point if you don't wanna

write with...this is more like calligraphy. If you're not familiar with calligraphy it would

probably be better to get the ball point. And then, I got a Slytherin stamp.

That's not really what it looks like but it has...check

when you buy or if you there and you decided to buy a stamp.

Check and make sure you're getting the right one. It will have it right here.

There's all of the houses. There's Gringotts, there's

Ministry of Magic, there's Hogwarts but here is what it actually...I've used it

so it's tinted green.

It's really cool. It's like a Slytherin seal.

And then, they did have ink of all colors

for the quill. I got the green ink for Slytherin

and I also got the Slytherin journal.

This they have in all the houses and Hogwarts as well.

The cool thing about this journal, as opposed to the other ones they have there, is

that it is filled with parchment

paper. So it is specifically for quill writing and ink.

I've already started.

This is my first page. I love Slytherin!

I also love snakes and I will have a pet snake,

in the future, at some point.

I've almost gotten a snake a lot of times so

it just hasn't happened yet. And then one of my favorite stores was Borgin and

Burkes! They finally got

a Borgin and Burkes physical store, which is just awesome!

They have these little mini skulls and I got one of these.

They're pretty spot on anatomically.

So, I thought that was neat. I got

Slytherin tattoos somewhere. They were like four in a package

different ones and then they have the dark mark tattoos. These come two in a package.

These are at Borgin and Burkes. I don't remember where I got the Slytherin tattoos.

But, I think one of the coolest things I got

was this hourglass. It has a lot of detail. There are

like skulls all the way around it and then

up and down on each side there's a spine and then

on the bottom there's a skull as well as like, a clock.

And it's the same on this side. And then, there's red sand in there.

This is a five minute timer so I think it's really cool.

Hahaha, oh fun faces. I also got this shirt at Borgin and Burkes.

It is a Dark Mark tank top. It has the dark mark just here on it.

The one thing you should get is a Butterbeer.

It's the best and I do recommend the frozen Butterbeer now

because it was my favorite. It's superior to the regular Butterbeer.

Both good but frozen Butterbeer

is better. So, that would be my

one thing to buy in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Alright guys, thank you so much for watching and make sure you give this video
