How much does Ollivanders Wand Shop experience cost?

Ollivanders Wand Shop experience is included in the price of your park ticket and is absolutely free.

At Universal Studios in Florida or Universal Studios in California, there isn't an additional charge for any of the wand experiences. 

While the wand experience is free to enjoy, keeping a wand will cost extra. If you find a wand you really like you'll have to pay for it!

Wands cost anywhere from $55 all the way up to $75 depending on the type of wand you're interested in.

Best Way To Experience Ollivanders Wand Shop

Ollivanders Wand Shop is very popular and often has a wait longer to get in longer than many rides!

TIP: We recommend arriving at Ollivander's early in the morning when you're most likely to see the lowest wait times and potentially even the ability to walk right in.

Ollivanders Wand Shop also does not have an Express Pass line, so if you plan to purchase an Express Pass keep in mind that you will not be able to use it for the wand experience.

Alternatively, if you're just looking to purchase a wand there are many other shops in Hogsmeade or Diagon Alley where you can browse wands and make your purchase.

Note: Typically only 1-2 guests are chosen to partake in the "wand experience".

A Universal Studios employee will choose this guest(s) at random and they typically like to choose children or couples.
