36: Behind the Scenes: After we watched how they do explosions and big water scenes, we got on a big tour bus around the back of the sets. Looking at old cars, planes and whatever else they used in movies, including Herbie! Then we came to a semi truck, it caught fire and exploded then a bunch of water rushed down, the truck slid down the hill (it stopped). It was all part of the act.... like in the movies!

49: Harry Potter Land & The Continent (Gladiator Days) were side by side. Not sure where we visited the Pearl Factory, but we did while we were there. I got to pick a clam and received a good size pearl from it. Cody had me a pretty necklace made w/Tucker's birthstone. Also, the Harry Potter ride was AWESOME!
