Ollivanders Wand Shop in Diagon Alley
Ollivanders Wand Shop in Diagon Alley is one of the most popular locations to purchase a wand!
Diagon Alley is where Harry Potter himself (and many other famous witches and wizards) received their first wand, so this location is extra special as it feels like a moment straight from the movies and books.
If you want the true wand-purchasing experience then we highly recommend purchasing your wand at Ollivanders Wand Shop in Diagon Alley!
You'll find just about any type of wand you can imagine at Ollivanders including wand collections and sets.
Discounts and special offers are typically never offered at Ollivanders though, so if you're looking to save some money on your wand purchase then you might want to consider shopping elsewhere.
Ollivanders Wand Shop in Hogsmeade Village
Harry Potter fans know there is no Ollivanders Wand Shop at Hogsmeade in the books and movies, but at Universal Orlando there is!
This Ollivanders location is supposed to be a "branch" of the original Ollivanders and not the true location we know from the books and movies.
Ollivanders in Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley are nearly identical, so just because you aren't going to the "true" location you don't need to worry about the experience feeling any less authentic.
Ollivanders at Hogsmeade Village is our #2 spot to purchase a wand and a great spot to go if you're flexible about where you get your wand from, but still want to experience that Wizarding World magic.
If you want to get straight to business and purchase a wand without a more immersive experience then no look no further than the wand carts found throughout Hogsmeade Village and Diagon Alley.
These wand carts carry a decent variety of wands (though not all) and you'll have a wand in your hand faster than if you went to any of the Ollivanders locations which sometimes have a lengthy wait.
While not the most glamorous or immersive way to purchase a wand, the wand carts are quick in and out ways to grab whatever wand you're looking for.
Universal Studios Store
If you're looking to get a wand into your head as quickly as possible without even stepping foot inside Universal Studios then the Universal Studios Store at CityWalk and CityWalk Hollywood is the place to go!
The Universal Studios Store has a huge selection of wands and is a great place to go if you're looking to quickly pick up a new wand and be off to the rest of your day.
