One of my favorite souvenirs from the Harry Potter park (other than the Harry Potter wands) are the Harry Potter/Hogwart’s house robes. These particular robes go well beyond the standard Harry Potter costume robe. They’re thicker, better constructed, and actually look like an actual robe rather than a costume.
You can buy them in a different color for each of the Hogwart’s houses; Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin.
The robes are pretty pricey and in short supply. You find a limited selection of both size and house in the robes — at least in my experience. You can find these same robes at the WBShop, although they’re about 50% more expensive than in the parks. I find this somewhat unusual, as WB tends to be the same price or lower than the Harry Potter park merchandise. The robes at Dervish & Banges sell for $99.95 and for $155.95 at the WBShop. Of course, a $50 up charge still beats the cost of a flight to central Florida….
Also something to note if you decide to buy the WB Shop’s version — they’re one size fits all (or most). The one’s at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter park include many different sizes. This would be an issue for me, as it seems that the ones at WB are made for people in the 5’5″ range and at 6′, it might look a little funny on me.
Finally, the robes (both at WWoHP and WB) include a wand pocket!! How cool!
