We had a lot of questions from readers about the Ollivanders Wand Shop show at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Many of you have been to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, but did not wait in the line to see Ollivanders show. I can sympathize — the line’s usually longer than for the Harry Potter ride!
However, it’s one of the best parts of the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter and for those of you that missed it, here’s our video of the show.
As you can see from the video, the Ollivander wand show is only a few minutes long and then you’re led into Owl Post to purchase your Harry Potters wand. Quick tip: You do not have to wait in the line for the show just to buy a wand! I was shocked to hear many people asking in the park, “What’s that line for?”
“Oh, it’s to buy Harry Potters wand.”
” Are you kidding me??!!”
…guests proceeding to walk off, not willing to wait in the line to buy a wand. Well, I wouldn’t either! You can go into the Owl Post through Dervish & Banges or you can now get a wand from the wand kiosk located outside Filch’s Emporium and the Harry Potter ride.
Ollivander’s Wand Shop show is worth the wait, in my humble opinion. Even the video doesn’t do it justice. Universal did a great job with the theming in this little shop and it’s worth it to see it in person. Save it for later in the day when the lines have died down, considerably.
