Wands at the ready!

As a self-proclaimed Potter super-fan (I’m a Ravenclaw, if you were curious), there’s nothing I wanted to do more than cast a spell after watching the Harry Potter films. And now, I finally can!

With the correct incantations and motions, you’ll be able to cast spells throughout The Wizarding World of Harry Potter with new Interactive Wands that you can purchase from Ollivanders wand shops in both Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade. You’ll also get a map that marks all the locations throughout The Wizarding World of Harry Potter where you can put your new wand to use.

Pick up an Interactive Wand at a store in Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade, then look for bronze medallions embedded in the street that mark the various shop windows where you can cast spells. Once you’re there, just perform the correct spell and watch the magic come to life.

With a simple swish and flick, you can levitate a feather quill at Scribbulus…

Use a Silencing Charm to quiet the maddening song of the Fwooper bird at Magical Menagerie…

And light all the lamps and chandeliers in Flimflam’s Lanterns window…

We couldn’t think of anyone better to show us these incredible new Interactive Wands than cast members from the Harry Potter films – check out this video to see James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley) and Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) try out the Interactive Wands for the first time in Diagon Alley.

    Do any other wands other than the Universal ones work? Like, does the wand that comes with the interactive Mauraders Map work for this?

  5. Amazing

    Once you purchase a wand are they reusable for the next time you visit Universal and Harry Potter World?

    I am a grandparent, wanting to purchase the interactive wands for my two granddaughters when they make their first trip to Universal Studios later this month of April, 2018. They are 13 and 11, and I really want to allow them the pleasure of “having their wand choose them” at Olivanders, but I would like to send the correct amount of $$/or gift card with them so that the experience may be theirs. Please let me know how much each wand will cost? Thank you!!
