Ollivanders

Over at Ollivanders, you can experience the magic of “the wand choosing the wizard” through a short ‘show attraction’. Small groups enter Ollivanders together, and only one lucky guest gets to be chosen. The show is similar to when Harry Potter visits Ollivanders at Diagon Alley.

After the Ollivanders experience, everyone will be guided to Wiseacre’s Wizarding Equipment to choose and buy their own wands. This is one of the ‘hottest’ souvenirs because visitors can actually cast spells in Hogsmeade!
