For those of us that literally grew up with the characters in the books and movies, visiting The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a dream come true. The attention to detail in the parks is absolutely incredible and you can easily get lost in the “wizarding world” for hours.
There are so many things to see and do — both big and small — but it's the Harry Potter World hacks you have to look out for. While there, we discovered some secrets in both the Hogsmeade/Hogwarts and Diagon Alley sections of the park, ones that any true fan should definitely not miss out on.
While you wait in line at King’s Cross Station to board the Hogwarts Express, there’s a special picture area where you can stand in front of an illusion mirror and snap a pic, so it looks like you’re actually disappearing into the wall at platform 9 ¾! Tip: have your friend shoot a video instead of taking a picture, so you can get the full effect.
