OK, so we’ve looked at the Ollivander Wand show, but I wanted to quickly talk about the wands that you can buy at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, including Harry Potters wand.
There’s a HUGE selection of wands at Ollivanders Wand Shop. You can get Harry Potters wand, Severus Snapes wand, Dumbledores, Hermiones, Sirius Blacks, and more. Each wand is priced at $28.95, in the park.
However, you can also get all of these magic wands from the WBShop, online, including some wands that I didn’t see at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, including the Tri-Wizard collection of wands pictured to the left that I think is amazing! One thing to note: the wands are WBShop are considerably more expensive ($35-$38 plus shipping) than buying one at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, but then you don’t have to buy an Islands of Adventure Harry Potter ticket to get into the WBShop. 🙂
Ollivanders does have it’s own “line” of wands, though that are not replicas of the wands that various Harry Potter characters in the movies carry. They have Ollivanders logo printed on the box and say, “Makers of Fine Wands Sine 382 B.C.” on the top. Here’s a pic of one we bought while visiting the park.
They are of equal quality to the “character” wands that Ollivanders also sells and the same price. These are also the wands that will be “tested” at the Ollivanders Wand Shop show with lucky participants. It would kind of ruin the show if the wizard offers you Hermione Graingers wand to test out, wouldn’t it?
Remember, we’ll be doing another wand give-away, next week! Stay tuned to learn more about it or just subscribe to our RSS feed to stay up-to-date.
In the meantime, what do you think of the Noble/Wizarding World of Harry Potter wands? Have you checked them out? Do you intend to buy one when you visit the park? Leave your feedback in the comments, below.
