Now, wait a minute. Universal announced its one-millionth rider on Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey several months ago. And the attendance gains at Universal Orlando make clear that several million people have visited the Wizarding World since it opened. So today's announcement seems to confirm that many visitors to the new Harry Potter "theme park" have chosen not to buy a Butterbeer when they visit.
As someone who's consumed, uh, several of those one-million Butterbeers to date, what the heck? This stuff is awesome. It's liquid candy crack.
Okay, then, maybe the folks who chose not to imbibe a Butterbeer were the smart ones. They don't have to live with the addiction that causes me to drool onto my keyboard now when I see photos like this. And don't tell me I can make one at home. I've tried, but it just doesn't taste the same as when I'm sitting in the Hog's Head Pub. (By the way, if you are visiting the Wizarding World, don't queue to buy your Butterbeer at the cart. Slip into the pub for your drink, instead.)
Let's put it to a vote:
