Wizards and witches rejoice! A special 2023 collector’s edition wand is channeling all of the magical “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” vibes at Ollivanders Wand Shop inside Universal Studios Florida.
Limited 2023 Edition Collectible Harry Potter Wand – $75
As wizards and witches visit Universal Studios Florida, fans of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter can’t seem to get enough of the unique, interactive wands that help bring the magic of the franchise to life throughout the park. We stopped by Ollivanders Wand Shop along Diagon Alley for a first-hand look at this limited-edition collector’s series wand, inspired by the magical world created by J.K. Rowling and especially commemorating 2023.
This well-crafted wand is a realistic and fun collectible seemingly identical to the powerful tools used by our favorite Hogwarts students. A golden dome rests on the end of a pearl-colored handle. Ornate silver details and more gold separate the wand’s handle from its long, black core.
Just above the handle, ridged edges add more detail along the black core of the wand. The straight and narrow wand is elegant looking, with none of the carvings or curves featured on many of the specialty wands available at Ollivanders Wand Shop.
Wizards of all ages will be able to use the wand around the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. As with any other wand, this edition includes a detailed map of the interactive spots in which the environment can be manipulated with the correct movements across Universal Studios Orlando. The map covers Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida and Hogsmeade at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
We first found the limited-edition interactive wand at the Ollivanders Wand Shop along Diagon Alley, but expect to see it pop up at both parks soon.
This wand is the latest in a series of annual wands debuting as part of the Collector’s Edition wand series. Last year’s wand was full of unique carved details and is still available for guests, should this be the wand that chooses them. In 2021, a wand inspired by potion-making made its debut— read more about the cauldron wand here!
An all-new collection of interactive wands, including a Universal Studios Orlando exclusive, also arrived at Ollivanders inside the park’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter this past December.
