15 Secrets About the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Want to know 15 secrets about the Wizarding World of Harry Potter? Cool, because they’re about to blow your little muggle mind. Pardon me, what I meant to say was that your mind is rather large for a muggle ūüėČ Oh, you know what I mean. Anyway, upon visiting the Wizarding World, I found out some incredible facts about the theme park that truly amazed me. Now, I’m going to share them with you.

  1. There’s a red phone booth located outside of Diagon Alley. If you hop inside it and dial MAGIC, you’ll contact the Ministry of Magic.
  2. Props from the actual Harry Potter movies are littered around the wizarding world.15 Secrets About the Wizarding World of Harry Potter by Skinny Girl Standard
  3. Inside Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes, you’ll notice the same robotic Dolores Umbridge wheeling herself across a thin string over your head as made clear in the movies! Also note the music playing inside the shop (hint: it’s the same as in the films).
  4. Watch carefully: the man lifting his hat atop¬†Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes sometimes allows his pet bunny to sneak a peek.
  5. Look into the window at 12 Grimmauld Place just outside of Diagon Alley. Do you notice someone spying? Perhaps a Creature?15 Secrets About the Wizarding World of Harry Potter by Skinny Girl Standard
  6. The sign that hangs outside of The Leaky Cauldron actually leaks water! Bonus: The luggage inside The Leaky Cauldron is the real luggage used in the films!
  7. The perfume ad inside of Kings Crossing was the same ad displayed in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince when Dumbledore met Harry at Kings Crossing.
  8. The dragon in Diagon Alley blows fire every fifteen minutes. Before it explodes, you’ll hear grunting and growling, so take out your cameras and stand firm.¬†15 Secrets About the Wizarding World of Harry Potter by Skinny Girl Standard
  9. Purchase an interactive wand (with a map of 34 secret locations) in order to produce spells throughout the park. When you locate a magic medallion, say the spell you are instructed to (on the map), wave your wand, and wait for something magical to happen. 15 Secrets About the Wizarding World of Harry Potter by Skinny Girl Standard
  10. If you walk up to the vanishing cabinet inside Borgin and Bourkes, you can hear a bird chirping.
  11. Inside the line at The Forbidden Journey, pay attention once inside Dumbledore’s study. You’ll notice a book that floats and shelves itself.
  12. While in line at King’s Crossing for the Magical Express, you can stand in front of an illusionary mirror – it appears you are walking straight through Platform 9 3/4.
  13. Go inside the Knights Bus outside of Diagon Alley. Snap a photo and chat with the shrunken head. 15 Secrets About the Wizarding World of Harry Potter by Skinny Girl Standard
  14. Stop by Gringotts Money Exchange and trade your muggle money for Wizarding Bank Notes which you can spend like real money throughout the Wizarding World. Bonus: ask the goblin inside of¬†Gringotts Money Exchange if he’s a house elf.
  15. Go inside of Madam Malkin’s Robes For All Occasions and have a conversation with a sometimes brutally honest mirror that will give you advice on what to buy and what to definitely not buy.
