You don’t normally think of shopping when you think of Orlando theme parks. But at Universal’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure, the shopping is just as magical as the area’s thrill rides and attractions. So much so that Orlando Fun Tickets has created a list of the top shops you must visit on your next Wizarding World of Harry Potter trip.
Dervish and Banges – If you really want to become a wizard then you have to make a stop at Dervish and Banges. The only store in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter that offers everything you need to become the best wizard, Dervish and Banges offers everything from Spectrespecs to The Monster Book of Monsters; brooms including the Nimbus Two Thousand and One; Hogwarts School uniforms; Quidditch T-shirts, Quaffles, Golden Snitches and so much more.
Zonko’s – There is nothing but laughs and fun in store for you at this novelty shop. Zonko’s is sure to bring out your inner child and prankster with such fun items as Extendable Ears, Screaming Yo-yos, a Boxing Telescope, Shurken Heads, Fanged Flyer, Sneakscope and many more hilarious items to prank your friends and family. Warning! If you don’t like a good joke, don’t enter Zonko’s!
Honeyduke’s – If the Harry Potter films weren’t about magic and wizardry they would for sure be about sweet treats! How many times did your mouth water as you watched Harry, Ron and Hermione satisfy their sweet tooth with a chocolate frog, exploding bonbon or acid pop? Well now you can finally experience the treats from the film series at Honeyduke’s. This sweet shop will let you indulge in Bertie Bott’s Every-Favour Beans (Dumbledore’s favorite is the earwax flavor,) treacle fudge, Fizzing Whizzbees, pumpkin juice and so much more.
Ollivander’s – Easily one of the most magical places in all of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Ollivander’s Wand Shop provides the unique opportunity for guests to get their very first wand. But just like in the Harry Potter films, you don’t get to choose your wand the wand chooses you! With the help of a wand keeper and some special effects, Ollivander’s guests will go through a selection wand process and an interactive experience where your wand will reveal itself to you!
