8. Hogwarts House Merchandise

As you travel through Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade, even outside of the Wizarding world and into the regular areas of the park, you will see one of two things.

You will see many guests wearing robs, which I commend them on their commitment to wearing in Florida heat and humidity, or they are wearing something that shows off their Hogwarts house pride.

For those who are not familiar with how Hogwarts works, first year students are sorted into one of four houses, and they are:

  • Gryffindor
  • Slytherin
  • Ravenclaw
  • Hufflepuff

Once sorted, that house will be your family and your home. Visitors are big fans of house pride when it comes to the Wizarding World.
