The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Shows

Ollivander's Wand Shop

One of the most popular (if not the most popular) attractions at the new Harry Potter park is the Ollivanders Wand Shop show.  The show features an old wizard in Ollivanders going through the process of wand selection for one lucky guest.  The wands either work or not, depending on whether they're a "correct match" for the customer.  This results in quite a few interesting "special effects" in the shop.

Step inside the small dusty shop and choose from Ollivanders' full array of wands, or purchase replicas of the Harry Potter™ film characters' wands, Collectible wand sets and more.

Step into Ollivanders Wand Shop, makers of fine wands since 382 B.C. One muggle is chosen to try out a wand. After a few tests and misfires the correct wand finally chooses its owner.

The line for this show gets quite long, even on less busy days in the park, so come prepared to wait.  There's really no way around this wait, but don't be don't have to wait in this line to buy a wand!!  You can go in through Dervish & Banges to buy a wand, visit one of the wand kiosks throughout the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, or the shop at the front of Islands of Adventure to buy your wand.

TriWizard Spirit Rally in Hogsmeade

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has one main live action show, the TriWizard Spirit Rally in Hogsmeade just outside the gates of Hogwarts Castle.  It’s lively and energetic, fun to watch and photograph.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Shows-Triwizard Spirit Rally

At the Triwizard Spirit Rally, the visiting students from the Beauxbatons and Durmstrung show off their school pride. First the lovely French ladies demonstrate their ribbon dancing talents to a classical soundtrack. Then the Russian lads show off their martial arts skills with some fighting-stick acrobatics. Afterwards, everyone poses for pictures.

Dressed in blue outfits with blue peaked caps, four Beauxbatons women dance with trailing long blue ribbon streamers as they twirl about the small plaza. They never do anything magical, just as they did not in the Harry Potter saga. But they do look good, just as in the films!

The Durmstrang men, who attend a 700-year old school that teaches the Dark Arts, appear as brooding and angry as their movie counterparts. Since it’s too hot to for furs and capes, the Durmstrang men are reduced to wearing brown military-styled outfits.

Hogwarts Frog Choir at Harry Potter Park

Frog Choir

The Frog Choir, briefly seen in Prisoner of Azkaban, is an a cappella choir consisting of four Hogwarts students and two bass-singing toads (psst, they’re puppets). The group, led by an emphatically gesticulating conductor, performs beat-box versions of songs from the Potter scores, such as “Hedwig’s Theme” and “Something Wicked This Way Comes.”

The Frog Choir is a singing group of Hogwarts students which is conducted by Professor Filius Flitwick. In The wizarding world of Harry potter, a small choir of Hogwarts students show this as a presentation of songs, accompanied by their large croaking frogs.
