Welcome to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal! If you're a fan of the series, you know that it's a world full of wonder and enchantment that you'll never forget. And if you're not a die-hard fan, the sights and attractions are sure to leave you spellbound. As your travel experts at Park and Preston Travel, we know just how magical the Wizarding World can be. That's why we've put together this guide to help you plan your visit and make the most of your time at the park.
First things first: if you're a Potterhead, you'll want to get sorted into your Hogwarts house. The Sorting Hat is a staple of the Wizarding World and getting sorted is a rite of passage for any Harry Potter fan. Once you know which house you belong to, you can fully immerse yourself in the world of magic. Don't forget to represent your house with pride!
Once you've been sorted, it's time to start exploring. One of the most iconic attractions at the Wizarding World is Hogwarts Castle. From the outside, the castle looks like it's straight out of the movies. And once you step inside, you'll feel like you're really walking the halls of the famous school of witchcraft and wizardry. But if you're a thrill-seeker, you won't want to miss Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, the ride that takes you through the castle and on a wild adventure with Harry and his friends. But be warned, this ride isn't for the faint of heart. If you're prone to motion sickness, you may want to skip it.
Of course, no visit to the Wizarding World would be complete without a stop at Ollivanders Wand Shop. Here, you can watch as a wand chooses its wizard and even purchase your own wand to take home. And if you're feeling particularly adventurous, you can try out some spells with your new wand throughout the park. Just be careful not to cast any forbidden curses!
But what about food and drinks? The Wizarding World has you covered. Be sure to try a frozen butterbeer, a sweet and refreshing treat that's perfect for a hot day. And if you're feeling hungry, head to the Three Broomsticks for a hearty meal. Their fish and chips are a fan favorite. Just be prepared for the owl post to interrupt your meal!
As for merchandise, there's no shortage of options at the Wizarding World. Whether you're looking for a house robe or a plushie of your favorite magical creature, you'll find it all at the various shops throughout the park. And if you're a collector, be sure to check out the wand collection at Ollivanders. Who knows, maybe you'll even find a rare wand that chooses you!
But what if you could cast a spell and be dropped right into the center of any attraction at the Wizarding World? Where would you choose? Would you head straight for the Forbidden Journey? Or maybe you'd prefer to spend your time exploring Hogsmeade or Diagon Alley. No matter what you choose, we're sure you'll have an unforgettable time at the park.
