A Wizard’s Guide to Ollivanders: Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure

Are you ready to take a secret trip with me to Ollivanders at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure?

I was browsing through The Daily Prophet while my kettle was pouring me a cuppa. And Merlin’s beard, would you believe what I found? Ollivanders in Hogsmeade! 

Now, I knew that the Muggles actually pay to get into Diagon Alley in London (through the Portkey at Universal Studios, Florida), I also knew that Ollivanders was a huge success with the Muggles.

They love waving fake wands around while Ollivander secretly cast spells (the sly old fox).

But a whole new branch in Hogsmeade (in Universal Studios) was something I would have never predicted! So of course, I packed up my truck (well, it packet itself), and decided to investigate both the shops.

And you, my lucky wizard/witch, are coming with me!

But hold your threstals! 

It is of utmost importance that this piece of parchment does not fall into the hands of a Muggle. So please keep it off that thing they call the ‘Ethernet’, ‘interweb’ or whatever alright?

Alright, now grab some Floo Powder, and off to Ollivanders we go!
