Cast a Spell at Universal Orlando Resort

Universal Orlando ResortCalling all Harry Potter super fans – Wands at the ready! If you ever wanted to cast a spell after watching the Harry Potter films, now you finally can. This past July summer with the opening of the new Harry Potter, Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando Resort fans finally got to experience casting a spell with their own wands. With a simple swish and flick, you can levitate a feather quill at Scribbulus and even use a Silencing Charm to quiet the maddening song of the Fwooper bird at Magical Menagerie.

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 at the Universal Orlando Resort. 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 or Hogsmeade. Then be on the lookout for bronze medallions embedded in the street. These medallions mark various shop windows where you can cast your very own spells. Once you’re there, just perform the correct spell and watch the magic come to life. Universal Oralndo Resort went to great lengths to make the Wizarding World of Harry Potter an authentic experience. Being able to cast your own spell is a fun way to tour the Potter attractions and feel like you are a wizard right from the big screen.
