Come check out our recommendations for the top 6 things you must buy in Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure, Universal Orlando Resort! Check out our vlog below to watch the video that goes with this blog!

#1 - interactive wand

If you are a huge fan of Harry Potter this is a must if you want to have the fully immersive magical experience. Make sure to visit Olivanders and get yourself an interactive wand. You can get interactive and non-interactive wands based on your favorite Harry Potter character or "unclaimed" wands based on the Celtic tree calendar. There are several interactive wand spots throughout Hogsmeade, 9 spots in fact! Interactive wands come with a map of all the interactive spots in both Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley.

#2 - wand holder

You are going to want to check out the store just outside of Hogsmeade in the Lost Continent for this unique item! These one of a kind wand holders are individually crafted by a local artist and are made from a variety of materials.

#3 - owl post - postcards

At the Owl Post you can purchase a packet of postcards and a book of US mail postage stamps all Harry Potter themed. Bonus, you can get an official Owl Post ink stamp and mail it directly from Hogsmeade!

#4 - Hogwarts house scarf / merchandise

At Filch's Emporium you can buy items specific to your Hogwarts House from the Wizarding World. You can get a scarf, t-shirts, bags, hats, pennants, and more. No better way to purchase your House pride than purchasing an item at the gift shop within the hallowed halls of Hogwarts Castle.

#5 - Chocolate Frog

Check out the Honeydukes shop in Hogsmeade and buy yourself a chocolate frog. Chocolate frogs have trading cards of a different famous witch or wizard inside like Dumbledore, Nicholas Flamel, and more. They even have special edition cards that come out periodically. If you already have a particular card, make sure to ask at the front counter to see if you can do a trade!


Get yourself a Butterbeer from either of the two outside Butterbeer carts, inside the Three Broomsticks, or from Hogshead Pub. Butterbeer comes in 3 varieties; regular (like a soda), frozen (like slushy), or hot! Make sure to get a souvenir mug to take home.
