Ollivander's Wand Shop - Hogsmeade

Gift Shop
Hogsmeade (Islands Of Adventure)

Tips

  • Choose your very own wand - or have it choose you.
  • I was chosen two years in a row- the secret is to stand near the center front and look like you are about to pee yourself out of excitement!
  • Never keep your wand in your back pocket.
  • Ollivander's wasn't in Hogsmead it was in Diagon Alley...
  • Long line. Be patient
  • No this is not a restaurant, a roller coaster, and NO you cannt play games.
  • The wand chooses the wizard, Mr. Potter. It is not always clear why to those who study wandlore...
  • No wonder Draco had a complex. That is one ugly wand the kid got.
  • Even though 1 person is chosen out of 20ish ppl to have the wand chose you, I say it's worth the experience to see it be acted out. Definitely wait in line for the full magical experience
  • This little show feels like you are watching a short scene from the movie in person.. Totally worth the hot.sweaty wait.
  • I was chosen - look uber excited and it helps to wear some Harry Potter paraphernalia!! (:
  • As one of the workers mentioned, even Harry had to buy his wand.
  • So worth the wait even tho we didn't get picked!
  • Do this first thing!
  • There's only one option - get here first thing in the morning. If you don't, be prepared for at least an hour wait, and a struggle through one of the most poorly designed shops in all creation.
  • Definitely worth the wait in line... One lucky child get to have his want chose them
  • If you break your wand, just come back here. Please don't try to fix it yourself.
  • People say it isn't worth it... But it is. DEW IT, or you cheat yourself of the full 'Arry Pottah experience.
  • Beware of Megan Ireland. Lol
  • Back door also has a line. But they also sell all of the same wands in front of hogwarts (the big castle thing) via a concession stand. There is usually only a 3-4 minute wait up there.
