Visit Ollivander’s Wand Shop, Honeydukes, Zonko’s Joke Shop, and more on these tours of the Hogsmeade Village at the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter park! Some videos give you more detailed tours than other ones.
Go inside the Three Broomsticks restaurant, the Owl Post, and Dervish and Banges (that’s now sold out of their very expensive brooms, we hear). You do get a pretty good look at some of the merchandise available, including the brooms, sneakoscopes, remembralls, and more.
Some of it looks a bit cheesy and some of it looks amazing (like the brooms!). I’m curious as to how Universal plans to maintain an entire shop filled with just candy (Honeydukes), as well as others with merchandise, cheap toys, and so on. I know when we built Lost Continent, we built a bunch of stores — most of which are now closed because there just wasn’t enough business for all the “trinkets” in them. Some of these shops look like they may have the same issues, although they have great theming and the story-line to help them out.
What are your thoughts? Can they maintain them all?
