We are approaching the end of our magical tour in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at The Islands of Adventure. Before we leave, we have time for a pint of butterbeer at The Three Broomsticks pub. This is the place to recharge after your adventures with some traditional wizard grub. What was interesting about this place was that the set on the movie was actually designed after the attraction in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, as our guide explains.
Inside The Three Broomsticks you will find a rustic interior with a lively atmosphere. The butterbeer is a refreshing beverage which is appreciated in the warm Orlando weather. You can either choose to have it frozen or normal, but depending on your preference, the taste is still delicious. It is not too dissimilar from a cream soda with a hint of butter scotch and vanilla. You can either grab a butterbeer from the stand in the street, or from the bar in The Three Broomsticks.
Soon enough, were down a narrow alley behind Olivanders where you can watch and experience what it is like to have your very own wand choose you. Next door is Dervish and Banges, which offers a whole range of Hogwarts stationary and uniform needs, from blazers to broomsticks. You can even find badges for each of Hogwarts houses. Which house will you choose an alliance with; Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin?
Our visit to Hogsmeade might have come to an end, but our adventure has only just begun! We’re staying in Universal Studios‘ Islands of Adventure as we enter the Prehistoric world of Jurassic Park next and come face to face with giant dinosaurs.
