Question Can you buy online instead?

My daughter and son are not going on my trip as they are in school. I was hoping I could buy some of the WWoHP stuff online so I wouldn't have to carry it all back. Is the online stuff similar to that available in the park?

Dervish and Banges/Owl Post has all of the above. Really, there's only two other shops: Filch's Emporium and Honeydukes/Zonko's and all are worth seeing

You can have them deliver your items to the Islands of Adventure Trading Co. at Port of Entry. When you make your purchase, they will have you fill out a tag and then you can pick up your items at the end of your day. There is a small area in the Trading Co. that will have your packages. I do believe they need a certain amount of time before you can pick up though. We found it extremely helpful.

Is what true about them?

You can buy any wand (or wands) you want, regardless of your birthday.

But I heard that each type of wand corsponds with your birthday. I know you can get any wand, but I heard that each type of wand corsponds with your astrology sign or something.
