RUMOR: Ollivander’s Wand Shop to Debut New Style of Interactive Wands Next Month at Universal Orlando Resort

Ollivander’s Wand Shop in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter offers a wide variety of interactive wands for witches and wizards to choose from (or have the wand choose you in the wand ceremony). But a little owl told us that the 13 wand types currently available will be retiring next month, with brand new interactive wands debuting December 5.

There are rumored to be over 10 new wands, even more detailed than the originals, with the different cores listed on the boxes. These new wands could also roll out with a price increase, too. We’ve heard the wands will debut at $75 each (same as the collector’s edition wands) rather than the current $63 price tag on interactive wands.

Guests can purchase wands themed to their favorite characters or wands based on different characteristics and traits.

When the new wands debut, the old ones will still be available, but we believe they will be phased out similarly to the non-interactive wands.

Each current wand type and its description can be found below. The wand types are based on the Celtic Tree Calendar (which may or may not have historical origins), and Team Members can help you find the wand that corresponds to your birthday or another important date you choose.

Currently, willow is no longer available, and we have been told it will not be returning.

If you aren’t familiar with the Ollivander’s Wand Experience, check out our video below. The video is from 2020, so physical distancing measures are in place, but the general experience is the same.

The shop and experience can be found in both Hogsmeade Village at Islands of Adventure and Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida.

We’re not sure if there will be any more magical updates when these new wands debut on December 5, but stay tuned to UPNT for more information.
