Wonderful Book Release by Intrepid Traveler

Yes, I know this is a Disney blog, but that's no reason for me to not talk about one of my other passions.  I enjoy reading, especially fantasy books. One of my favorite fantasy novels is the Harry Potter series and because of this, I was naturally excited about the Wonderful World of Harry Potter opening up at Islands of Adventure, which has just recently opened. While I've not yet had the pleasure of visiting this park, I find reading information about it helps me to know more, and what better books to read than guide books, especially ones printed by a great publisher, Intrepid Traveler! Check out the amazing deal they have on the brand new Universal Theme Park Guide!
