It is always clear for those of us who have studied wand law that the wand chooses the wizard, although it is not always clear why.
As you make your way into the small dusty room known as Ollivander Wand Shophe will choose a witch or wizard out of the crowd to receive their first wand.
You will notice countless wand boxes stacked all the way to the ceiling.
Each wand carries a core of a powerful magical substance of either unicorn hair, dragon heart string or phoenix tail feather.
Please note that no two Ollivander wands are the same, just as though no two unicorns, dragons or phoenixes are the same.
As the chosen witch or wizard makes their way to the front of the room they will be asked to test several spells on different wands to find the perfect fit for that particular individual. Keep in mind that the wand will learn from their wizard just as the wizard will learn from their wand. As a wand chooses its wizard a certain magic fills the room and there is no question that the wizard had found it’s perfect match.
I will leave you with this one last bit of advice, never leave your wand in your back pocket … elementary wand safety!
Ollivanders Wand Shop will have you interacting as though you are part of the movie and the shop itself is everything that you have always pictured. Muggles will love the idea of having some of their favorite movies being brought to life in front of their very eyes.
After Ollivanders head into the gift shops where you are able to purchase your very own Ollivanders wand or replicas of character wands from the Harry Potter films. You can also purchase collectable wand sets, books, robes, uniforms, scarves, journals, omniculars, quaffles, snitches, brooms and more. Keep a distance from the monster book of monsters, remember he bites.
Now that you have your wand, your books, and robes next stop is the Hogwarts Express!!!!
