Jeff Guillaume (webmaster and editor-in-chief of HPANA), Heidi Tandy (co-founder of FictionAlley) and Jeannie Barresi (co-owner of Beyond Boundaries Travel) planned a Harry Potter fan's dream vacation to the United Kingdom, set to take place in the summer of 2004 with the theatrical release of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Following and building upon the success of that premiere tour, HP Fan Trips in the years since has whisked thousands of Harry Potter fans to Britain and Scotland, featuring an exclusive ride in the carriages used as the Hogwarts Express in the filming of the Harry Potter movies, private parties at Edinburgh Castle and much more. HP Fan Trips in 2011 continues the tradition of offering unsurpassed experiences for Harry Potter fans for the eighth year.
