The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is now at Universal Studios Hollywood

Since we use to live in Utah, our vacations often took us to California for Disneyland or Universal. It was much closer than Florida – but we missed out on the awesome Harry Potter World stuff! Now that we’re in Texas, we’re pretty close to right smack in the middle…..and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is now at Universal Studios Hollywood, so California has just as much magic!

We’ve been sharing some posts from our first trip to Harry Potter World in Orlando last September, and can’t wait to see how the California Hogsmeade compares! There will, of course, be some differences – it looks like the Dragon Challenge ride isn’t included. The castle looks AMAZING, though, and still includes the great ride Harry Potter & the Forbidden Journey. My kids’ absolutely FAVORITE ride, Flight of the Hippogriff, is there so that’s a big excitement!

You can still try a delish Butterbeer, and stop by Ollivanders to pick out your own wand. Plenty of shops, such as Zonke’s Joke Shop, Honeydukes and Gladrags Wizardwear. I’m sad that The Weasley’s store isn’t there, but not surprised since that’s a Diagon Alley thing. Don’t forget to eat at the Three Broomsticks, too!

I highly recommend trying their pumpkin juice – it was so yummy and refreshing! Honeydukes also has so many tasty treats, you have no shortage of options!

The grand opening is April 7th, so head on over to Get Away Today for the best deals on your vacation – then pack your robes and have a magical time!
