If you are a fan of the J.K. Rowling books and Warner Bros. film series, Harry Potter, visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at a Universal theme park is likely quite high on your bucket list.
At Universal Orlando Resort, Guests have the option to either visit Hogwarts and Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, or Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida. Both lands offer amazing attractions like Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, Escape from Gringotts, Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure, and more.
The incredibly immersive land also gives Guests the chance to purchase a Hogwarts wardrobe that is themed to either Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin. And if you are going to be a wizard, of course, every wizard needs a wand! Guests can purchase a wand at a variety of locations around the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, but Ollivander’s Wand Shop is one of the best spots to go if you are interested in having a truly magical experience.
But, all of these purchases can sure add up. Aside from the hundreds, many Guests spend on souvenirs, a day at the Universal theme parks also includes food and drink, which can run your credit card up as well. So, if you are planning on spending some money when you visit the theme parks anyway, why not get something free out of it?
Right now, if Guests purchase a Universal Merchandise Shopping Card (aka a gift card) for $250.00, they will get a free wand, which typically retails at $50.00. If you are a family, or, if you are a Guest who visits the theme park often, purchasing this gift card is a very smart move. Considering how easy $250.00 can go when Guests are at a theme park, by taking advantage of this deal, Guests can receive something for free.
The only caveat is that this offer is available for non-interactive wands, so if it was your goal to own an interactive wand, you will have to make that purchase yourself. If you would like to take advantage of this deal, just ask for a Team Member when you enter a gift shop at Universal Orlando Resort, and they will be able to best help direct you to where that purchase can be made, as there are a variety of locations around the park.
