    Harry Potter Day at Disneyland! Sunday, November 2nd!

    Last year there were a LOT of people (especially on Micechat) that found out about this after the fact and were really disappointed they couldn't participate. I really hope the word spreads beforehand this time.

    Well, it's coming up on us once again: The Second Annual Unofficial Harry Potter Day at Disneyland!

    It's an all day event happening on Sunday, November 2nd.



    So what're we doing? Well, on the surface it's exactly what it sounds like: a bunch of people who like Rowling and Disneyland hanging out together. We're organizing a really great scavenger hunt which I'm calling a Coin Quest.

    Here is the itinerary:

    9:30am - 11am Check in for the Coin Quest at the Plaza Gardens

    11am - 11:30am Gather together in Plaza Gardens, prepare for group picture.

    11:30am Group photo at the Castle (followed by) CLUES GIVEN OUT... GO!!

    12pm - 7pm Coin Quest!

    7pm Turn in coins at Plaza Gardens. Totals tallied, winners announced, prizes distributed!

    After prizes given out: GROUP RIDE! (T.B.D.)

    There may also be a group watching of the Fireworks Spectacular. And at the end of the evening, several of us of-age Wizards and Witches will go to Downtown Disney for a nightcap of Butterbeer or Firewhiskey.

    Here's some pictures of the fun from last year:











    You don't have to dress up all costumey or be a Potter fanatic in order to participate - I'd love to see a bunch of Micechatters participate. Our ultimate hope and desire is that if we keep doing this and making it bigger we can one day make it into a Bats Day-like event with a Wizard Rock concert and everything.

    There's a profile page with rules for the coin quest at this url: MySpace.com - Harry Potter Disneyland Day - 99 - Female - ANAHEIM, California - www.myspace.com/hpdday

    Naturally, as one of the organizers (we're calling ourselves the Inquisitorial Squad) I'd be happy to answer any questions or whatever.

    Who's excited?! I'm excited!

    I love the logo for this year. It is a thing of brilliance I say. I'd be there if I did not live far away.

    I will try again this year. I didn't get much involved last year as I didn't know anybody, but this year I have tie, scarf and wands that I can choose from. Also I just might bring along some surprise DVD's of my Harry Potter Theme Park. If I can finish it in time.

    Mmmmm...Hermione cosplay.

    Just kidding.

    I was shocked to learn about the devoted following Harry Potter books have amongst people old enough to drink, but I guess it makes sense since if you started reading the books when you were 12 you'd be in college by now (or something like that, I'm not sure on the math).

    Actually, I have no such excuse. I'm 28 now.

    Among my friends who were Potter fanatics, I was the latest of the converts, but also the most devoted. I didn't start reading the books until the film version of Goblet of Fire was released. And then I started reading the books, which took over a month of my life - a thirty day straight read-through.

    The Harry Potter books, which I'm now re-reading for the third time, appeal to me as an adult just as the whimsy, mirth and escapism of the Magic Kingdom do today. So being able to combine the two? Too fun.

    I won't be able to be there, but I'm in complete agreement that the logo is AMAZING. Whoever designed gets major props from me. The only issue is the fact that the "ears" are mirror images of each other, instead of a more realistic portrayal of the way the snake would curl. But it's still great.

    Both. Simultaneously.

    The Coin Quest will consist of a series of riddles / clues which describe a location in the Wizarding World which is extremely similar to or parallels a specific location in Disneyland.

    For example, if a clue told you to go to travel down the Main boulevard and arrive at platform 9 3/4, you would go to the Main Street Train Depot and find a member of the Inquisitorial Squad there... I use this as an example because I'm not using said place as a clue or location.

    You mean for the Coin Quest / Scavenger Hunt, right? Just meet us at the Plaza Gardens on the day of anytime between 9:30am and 11am. No one needs to sign up for anything beforehand.

    Every person that chimes in on this roll call of attendance makes my heart shine all Pollyanna-like.

    See you there!

    This is going to be so perfect! I'm a Prefect at a pretty big Harry Potter message board so I will let everyone know about it!
