Description And Comments
Ollivanders is the gift shop where muggles can purchase their very own magic wands.
Approximately once every 10 minutes at Ollivanders, a wand selection show takes place where a random customer (usually a child) is selected to take part in a "wand choosing" ceremony. Cute dialog and special effects lead to a wand choosing the customer, who then has the opportunity to purchase the $30+ wand just like any other patron in the store.
- Open for Early Park Admission.
Due to its extremely low capacity (about 150 guests per hour), long lines for the show at Ollivanders form quickly upon park opening and last until just before the park closes. If you need to see this show, go first thing in the morning.
You do not need to see the wand selection show in order to purchase a wand at Ollivanders--just enter the store directly rather than wait in the long outdoor queue. Also, wands and other Harry Potter merchandise are available online and at other stores in the Wizarding World, as well as at Islands of Adventure Trading Company.
