All these entries are interesting. Sage used to live in NYC Battery Park City)and she and her parents may be moving back again. So meeting all you folks from NYC may be a good thing. She just came from NYC, where her dad is now working, before she came down here to ATL.

Sue Certain Jul 20, 2014 at 01:16 PM

Hi, I'm Sue Certain. I am from Atlanta, GA, and my granddaughter, Sage, 11, from Park City, Utah, will be in this program starting July 23, 2014.

Dylan (11) and Avery (9) from Orinda, CA, will be bringing two grandparents to the July 9 program and visiting London afterwards. Dylan has read all the Harry Potter books and was Harry at Halloween. We're all looking forward to the program.

Pat Wood Jun 08, 2014 at 08:18 PM

Comming to July 9 program with Emma age 11; Was on the same program in 2010 with her older sister. The program was wonderful and the schedule worked well. Glad to know John Hudson is returning as leader as he is exceptional. The kids made great scrapbooks so allow room in luggage for them! Any questions just ask?

John Apen Jun 06, 2014 at 11:45 PM

Wife and I are coming to July 9 Oxford program, with 11 year old grandson Cole, just finished 5th grade, has read all Harry Potter books. Will stay in London for 5 days after. We are coming from Orlando.

Jean McMillan Apr 15, 2014 at 08:44 AM

I am planning to attend with my 9 year old grandson - anyone from near Rochester NY?
Ellen Saunders Apr 15, 2014 at 03:59 PM

My granddaughter Phoebe is from Brooklyn, not exactly in your 'hood but we may be on the same plane out of JFK....?
Jean McMillan Apr 16, 2014 at 08:21 AM

We'll be flying out of Toronto this time - Wyatt and I will see you there!

Susan Burford Mar 27, 2014 at 02:27 PM

We are coming to the July 23 program with two granddaughters. We all are very excited. We will be in London before the program.
Ellen Saunders Apr 11, 2014 at 08:17 PM

I have decided to forego extra days in London and go directly to the program. Phoebe (granddaughter) is 10 - how old are your granddaughters, and where do they live?
Susan Burford Apr 11, 2014 at 08:47 PM

Hope will be 11 in May and Trinity will be 10 next August. From Spokane, WA. Where is Phoebe from?
Ellen Saunders Apr 14, 2014 at 04:06 PM

What a coincidence - I live in Olympia, WA - Phoebe lives in Brooklyn NY.
Stephanie Grossman Jun 10, 2014 at 05:03 PM

I am coming with my 11 year old granddaughter, Becky. I live in Palo Alto, CA and she lives in NY city. This is my third Harry Potter trip. Both of Becky's sisters loved it. Look forward to meeting all of you. I am glad there are a number of girls on this trip. The other two I went on were mostly boys.
Susan Burford Jun 10, 2014 at 05:46 PM

This is our 2nd Oxford Harry Potter. Did it with our grandson 7 years ago. Certainly worth repeating for the next set of kids.

Barbara Robey Feb 25, 2014 at 06:24 PM

My grandson thought that the Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower of London was one of the highlights of the trip to London. Check out the Tower website for details. It might be more of a boy thing than a girl thing, however. Also, the Science Museum was a big hit. Most of the exhibits there are geared to children. Your granddaughter is going to have a great time at the Harry Potter experience. Platform 9 3/4 at King's Cross Station in London is icing on the cake.
Ellen Saunders Apr 11, 2014 at 08:18 PM

Maybe we'll hit London on another trip - have decided to do the program alone....But thanks for your tips!
