    Very well done rendition of Hogwarts and Hogsmeade. Don't bother waiting for the wand show. All I got out of it was some sunburn from waiting for nearly an hour.

    Get the mug and pay $1 for refills (except butterbeer) for all the wizards traveling with your group

    Forbidden journey has two lines. If you don't have a bag skip to the front of the castle!

    Skip Oliwander's. It's cool but not worth the wait. Also, not worth the jealousy you're gonna feel when the chosen kid wins a wand...

    Even though the Harry potter line is ridiculously long, and there's no fast pass available, it is entirely worth it.

    Get a butter beer in the Three Broomsticks instead of waiting in line outside. (except if it's lunchtime.)

    If you can, come on a cold day. Fewer people and it is much easier to get into the wintery feel of the village.

    There should be express passes available for Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey. The wait time was like 70 minutes. But the ride was good anyway. Hogsmead and All the shops were very realistic.

    Best to either do at opening when line is shorter or go single rider.

    Best part of the parks! Make sure to get the butter beer all three ways and to get a wand and explore the secrets!

    Ollivanders wand store is tiny because J.K. Rowling actually had a hand in the creation! She insisted that the store remain authentic.

    The Three Broomsticks has awesome food. Plus, they serve butterbeer so you have to eat there!

    I'm standing at the entrance with a yellow polo and a straw hat. Come by and say Hi or bring a butter beer for me :D

    Ollivander's is not where you actually buy the wand, go to Dervish and Banges...that's where you buy wands

    Get a priority access wait slip @ Toon Lagoon or you'll have to wait 120 mins in a standby line. Go thru Filch's to use lockers instead of the ridiculously long line up front for Forbidden Journey!

    Universal Express pass don't work in WWOHP. Usually a 75min wait just to get in. Go straight to WWOHP, & get a 'reserved' time ticket for later entry.

    If you're interested in the Ollivander's experience, the line is a fraction as long in Diagon Alley.

    If you have younger kids, buy them a magic wand. You can go to marked locations where they can use the wand to perform "magic" tricks. My kids loved it (even my teenager!)

    Diagon Alley was WAY better. Hogsmeade is the less interesting of the two. Food here is terrible

    You can sometimes go into Dervish and Banges and Olivanders from back entrances. The giant line at the front is for the wand show.
