Hi Annie, We took the full day Harry Potter London tour which included Lacock, Stonehenge and Oxford. At the time it also included a stop at the "Privet Drive" house but it looks like perhaps there is no longer a stop there. It is just a private house in a suburb and not terribly convenient to get to. If you are visiting Warner Bros. Studio Tour London for the Making of Harry Potter then you will see the Privet Drive house that they used on set there. You can find more information in my article here if you haven't seen it already. Our tour did not include a stop at Gloucester Cathedral. I will attempt to contact the owner of the company to see if I can find more information and email you directly. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any additional questions about London. We have visited several times with our children and love the city!! Lisa
I have heard that the Candlelight Processional is amazing but we have yet to see it. It's definitely at the top of my list the next time we visit Disney World during the holiday season! We loved the Osborne Family Lights as well - I was so sad when I heard that it was shutting down.

You're most welcome, Lorii! Have a great time in Ireland - I would love to visit Powerscourt in the summer when all the flowers are blooming!!
I'm sure your kids would love the Disney on Broadway tour (particularly if they're young) - it's a great way to introduce them to theatre in New York!
We didn't find out about it until we had already been to New York several times!
We never get tired of visiting New York and seeing Broadway shows - it's so much fun!!
We love to see shows on the West End as well - always a highlight of our trips to London! Have a great time in NYC!!
There's nothing that compares to seeing a show on Broadway!!
The tours are definitely a lot of fun for Broadway fans!
Glad you found it helpful, Claudia - let me know if you have any questions before your spring trip!
Dromoland Castle is so lovely - my daughter didn't want to leave! I can't even imagine what people from Europe must think when they see North American hotel rooms!
I know - I wish we would have had more time to stay at each one of them!
There's always a good reason to go back to Ireland! :)
I love spacious accommodations too - there's nothing worse than being in a cramped room with teens/pre-teens! Dromoland Castle is incredible - I'm sure your family would love it!!
It was a great hotel - and an unbeatable location!!

Hi Leah, What a fun trip for you and your mom! I think Holiday Inn would be a great choice for the two of you. It's a fun, light-hearted, old-fashioned sort of musical with a happy ending and some great dancing - perfect for the holiday season!! We saw the Rockettes' Christmas Spectacular tour in Toronto a few years ago and my girls and I loved it. I hope I get the chance to see it at Radio City Music Hall one day! Happy to be of help - and hope you have a wonderful trip! Lisa
It's a beautiful town - I hope I get back to spend more time some day!
