Are you ready to make some Harry Potter spells? One of our favorite parts of visiting Wizarding World of Harry Potter is the interactive wand spell locations. My kids love this part of the experience. You become a wizard!
Enter to Win Merchandise from the new Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure Opening June 13!
You can purchase an interactive wand to perform Harry Potter spells from numerous locations throughout Universal Orlando Resort, including CityWalk and Universal Orlando Hotels. Inside the interactive wand box, you will get a map of all of the wand spots. We wanted to take it a step further and create a Harry Potter Spells Guide to help you navigate these spell locations.
The following Harry Potter Spells Guide will take you through the spells that you can perform with special interactive wands at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley™ and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade™.
Let’s start at Diagon Alley™ which is my favorite park. This newer area of Wizarding World of Harry Potter has some of the best interactive wand spell locations.
Throughout Diagon Alley™, you will find 16 interactive wand spell locations. 11 in the greater Diagon Alley™ area and 5 in Knockturn Alley. Hogsmeade™ has 9 interactive spell locations.
The interactive spells are marked with a brass medallion embedded in the ground.
Below, you can find the locations, Harry Potter spells, and the effects produced.
