"What's Potter Day Lite?" you may be wondering, if you've never attended one. Potter Day Lite is something which came about because several Hogwarts, Yensids, Beauxbatons and Durmstrang students didn't want to wait an entire year to meet up again at the Magic Kingdom.
Our big, annual event has always taken place on the 1st Sunday of November. If you can only visit Disneyland once per year you're best off waiting for the big one which attracts wizards and witches from all over. If you can swing a second trip to the Park, however, you might consider joining us on 5 - 4 - 2014. Unlike November's Harry Potter Day at Disneyland, Potter Day Lite is smaller, more informal, has no games, no scavenger hunts, no being sorted into Houses, no competitions of any sort. It's just a chance to fly your House Colors while enjoying rides and attractions with a handful of fellow Rowling enthusiasts.
This year we're going to take a tour of all four of Yensid's Houses! Here's our itinerary...
11am - Willowdell House!
[Meet along the Small World Promenade and we will board the Storybook Land Canal Boats together.]
***UPDATE*** The visit to Grizcom's Shadow Rider Corral will likely be cancelled due to refurbishment. If another Grizcom-related location is not selected this visit will be folded into the Rickett section of the tour owing to the two Houses' proximity... Check for updates later...
3pm - Steam Boats to Rickett House!
[Gather in the space near the drinking fountain by Thunder Mountain - assuming it is not an extended queue and being careful not to block any muggle walkways - and we will board the Mark Twain together to visit the enchanted teepees of Rickett House.]
4:30pm - Dashwood House!
[Gather 'round the fountain by this Haunted-looking Mansion and the more intrepid and brave amongst us will visit the spirited halls of Franklin Dashwood's former residence.]
7pm - Flying Lessons!
[Cross the esplanade over to California Adventure and gather beneath the platform of the Silly Symphony Swings for an evening lesson in flying. No brooms required!]
Meeting times and places are subject to change, so be sure to check back here just before Potter Day Lite. Remember to wait for a Faculty member to signal when the group should enter each House.
Potter Day Lite is going to be more fun than a barrel of cornish pixies, so we look forward to seeing everyone that can make it!
[Mischief decidedly unmanaged.]
