Let’s Breakdown the Ingredients of the Cinnamon Toast Crunch Drink
There are only two main components of this magical drink: RumChata and Fireball Whiskey.
RumChata is bottled from a made-from scratch cream liqueur recipe that uses five times distilled Caribbean rum and a combination of cream, cinnamon, vanilla, sugar and other top-secret flavors.
Fireball Whisky is a cinnamon flavored whisky-based liqueur produced by the Sazerac Company. You can enjoy both RumChata and Fireball Whisky can be enjoyed in coffee, tea, straight up and in various dessert-based cocktails.

What to Know Before You Go
Before you immerse yourself into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, you should know a few basic things.
Which Park is Harry Potter World Located in Orlando?
Harry Potter World in Orlando (and yes I did use that term…this is a Muggles’ guide ), is divided into two sections:
- The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Hogsmeade – Located in Islands of Adventure
- Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley – Located in Universal Studios Florida
What is the Difference between Hogsmeade vs. Diagon Alley?
- Diagon Alley focuses on the Wizard’s experience shopping, dining, and socializing in the secret London location.
- Hogsmeade focuses on the experience of the Hogwarts students living and learning inside the castle. Plus, their experiences exploring the little village of Hogsmeade.
Does Universal Hollywood have Hogsmeade or Diagon Alley?
Universal Hollywood currently does not have a Diagon Alley section. You can still experience the Hogsmeade adventure in the Hollywood park!
Can you walk though Hogwarts at Universal?
Yes you can!
If you don’t want to ride this attraction, you can inform a Team Member that you would like to do a tour of the castle and they’ll lead you to the right path.
Hipster Power Tip: Be sure to take advantage of the Child Swap Program. This program works by allowing one member of your party to wait in a designated area along with any children who are unable or unwilling to participate.
Be sure to look up, look down, look everywhere!
I love finding new things to do and explore in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. For first timers you may be overwhelmed with every incredible detail going on.
So, here are a few cool things to look for:
- The sounds of Moaning Myrtle in the restroom
- The shadow of a house elf quickly walking upstairs in the Three Broomsticks
- On the Forbidden Journey, check the cabinet left of the Fat Lady for props used in the film
- Find bottles of Skele-Gro in Filch’s Emporium
