During our recent Agent VIP tour of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, one of the best parts of our experience was the wand show at Ollivanders Wand Shop. This is an absolute MUST SEE when you come to the Wizarding World! I promise you that! The ambience of Ollivanders Wand Shop, alone, is worth the wait! Picture floor to ceiling shelves of wands, each one unique according to Ollivander. Once you’re inside the shop, you really feel as if you’ve stepped into Harry’s Wizarding World. The show itself, although brief, features some not-to-be missed special effects as Ollivander tries to find the perfect wand for one very special guest. Children are often the wizards looking for the perfect wand but sometimes adults as well. You never know what can happen in the Wizarding World!
One thing to note: Ollivanders Wand Shop is small and there are typically lines outside waiting for the next show. If you take our advice and visit the Wizarding World late in the day instead of early , the lines should be much shorter. Also, the show is very brief so even if you are standing on line, it should move fairly quickly so the next group can enter.
And not to worry Harry Potter fans, the show exits into the Owl Post where you can purchase the wand of your choice and take home a piece of the Wizarding World! Keep the camera handy for both Ollivanders Wand Shop and the Owl Post.
