well, long story short...........
i was complaining that parry hotter was coming to town and got zapped with a Tom Felton tag.


i believe the tag fairy was trying to 'put me in my place' for bad mouthing a very much loved person.



any hoot, i still have not seen the movies or read the books.
i tried to watch 2 of the movies but turned it off early.
wasn't my thing.




but, i do really enjoy parry hotters section at IOA.
it is a fun area to do on each trip.

i tell posters that even if you have never seen the movies or read a book about parry hotter, you still will enjoy the section in the park that most others worship.

I'm sure this has been asked & answered somewhere... If we buy something (like a wand, which we plan to do first thing) will they hold it or can I pick it up later at the front of the park? I just know that my DD will want a wand & I don't want to have to get a locker just for it since we plan on riding all day. Thanks.

if you buy a wand, tell the TM that is ringing your purchase up, you want to use the delivery service.

they will send your purchase/wrapped, to the front store for holding.


keep the claim ticket they issue you.
you need to show that for pick up.

it will take at least one hour for the package to be in the holding store up in the front of the park.

Great. It will be so much easier that way. If you were leaving the park at 3:00, what would be the latest you could buy something at the park stores and have it waiting at the front store for you? Around 1:30?

Just to be on the safe side, you might want to allow two hours especially if the park is busy that day.

Crowds should be relatively low now until Memorial Day weekend.

you can also ask the TM that rings up your purchase the approximate time you need before pick up will be available.
they will be aware when the next pick up will be.


runners go to the stores and pick up all the bagged purchases and take it to the front merch store.


like metro west stated, if the park is crowded, give it a couple of hours.

I will make sure to ask as I know it will be busy at the end of June. A related question, can you buy all of the same things at the front store that you can buy throughout the rest of the park or are there special ride-related souvenirs you can only get at the "ride exit" store (like at Disney)?? I would love to leave all of the purchasing until we are leaving the park if I can.

you will find a selection of parry hotter items at the main merch store.
it won't be as great as what you find in the ph section though.

but, with not knowing what you plan to buy, i don't know how to answer your question.


i know the pins that are at ph area will also be in the front store.



maybe the TM's in the parry hotter area would be able to have that knowledge.

Thanks for the info. I have no idea what we will be buying yet. Would love to say very little, but I know that is not how it will play out.
