You don’t have to take a ride on Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts to experience one of Gringotts goblins. In addition to the popular ride, these ghoulish green little men can be found at the Gringotts Money Exchange and they’re just as life-like and real as the ones inside the ride and in the movies.

The Gringotts goblins in the “Harry Potter” series aren’t the chattiest of folk and neither are the ones on “Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts” but if you head to the Gringotts Money Exchange you just might get one of these creatures to engage in a conversation.

When you arrive at Gringotts Money Exchange, there is an animatronic goblin tending to his bank book. He will look up with you with the goblin’s usual annoyed face and welcome you to the Money Exchange before asking if you have a question. This is the time to ask him any burning question you may have about Harry Potter. For the most part, the goblin can and will answer your questions with one or two word sentences but don’t be surprised if you ask him about something not related to his work, Harry Potter or Universal and he just shakes his head. As you fire off questions to the goblin make sure you ask him if you can have a bank note.

The Gringotts Money Exchange Goblin will happily accept your Muggle currency in exchange for a Wizarding Bank Note. Just like Muggle money, the bank notes can be used as cash in Hogwarts, Hogsmeade and anywhere in Universal Orlando parks or you can keep them as souvenirs from your Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley trip. The bank notes are available in ten and twenty dollar denominations.

After you’ve exchanged your money feel free to take a look around the rest of Gringotts Money Exchange. Here you will be able to use your Wizarding Bank Notes on several different items if you so choose including wallets, chocolate gold coin candy, and Gringotts bank bags.
