Can anyone tell me about how much a wand goes for at Olivander's? We are heading there next month and my kids each want one, so i am trying to make sure we budget enough. Thanks so much!

Hey guys, saw the merchandise but did not see any Hufflepuff stuff. (lol at rhyme)


ANYWAY, I was wandering if they sold anything like what was for Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. I hope so, otherwise I may have to have a house change....

(I may just go to slytherin..... )

$25-30 for exclusive Ollivander wands
$30-50 for character wands.

The Ollivander wands are pretty neat. They're for all kinds of people. Some have skulls on the end of them, some of then are more plain, and some of them are thick. They're pretty diverse and rather cool.

$25-$120

The experience at Olivanders is very cool, but only one person per group (probably around 20) inside Olivanders gets the experience, but anyone can buy a wand at the Owl Post.

While there is a ton of stuff for Griffindor and Slytherin, it looks like there are a couple choices for shirts, etc for both Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. So stay true to your House!

Anyone have photos of their wands to share? I'm particularly curious to see what the exclusive wands look like.

I started a "Which Wand Chose You?" thread so people can display their wands!

Anyone hear whether they're letting the general public in today? If so...how long they're letting them stay? Also are they limiting hotel guests to the previous 8A-10A?

I'm heading up early next week and spending a night at the Hard Rock (the last of the 3 I need to stay in!)

So, for package holders and hotel guests, they are allowed in around 8am? is there a specifically marked entrance for this?

And, for those not riding (I have already convinced myself in order to avoid disappointment that I will not fit into the ride device. I can ride everything else just fine, but sounds like this ride hates fat people more than the other rides) they are still able to experience the queue? At the very least, I want to experience what is inside Hogwarts.

Don't know how true it is, but initial reports are saying the GP was told this morning at the gate that there was no-how no-way they were getting in there today, but then at 9am the doors swung open for them and they are in now.

Yet another example of how you can't really believe anything people at Universal tell you even if they tell it to your face while you're standing there at the entrance.

I haven't heard any reports yet as to how long they are supposedly staying open for today.

No GP soft opening preview today.

Edit: I gave up at about 9:05 this morning when they said there was no way they would be opening today so I don't know if the above poster is right about what happened afterwords.

Yes, you can absolutely experience the entire queue and pre-show! In fact, it's set up so you can easily bypass the ride portion. It sounds really nifty.

Also, there's a test seat outside which may give you at least some idea whether you have a chance of fitting on the ride. The only glitch seems to be that the operators are no longer allowed to push the seats closed on people (some folks complained?), so if it can't close by itself, you might not be able to ride when you get inside, even if you could squeeze into the test seat.

I don't know it for a fact. I'm just reporting what I've heard so far.
