What’s New At Universal Studios Hollywood!

Hey All!

I recently had the amazing opportunity to be invited to check out all the new happenings going on at the Wizarding Word of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood. It’s one of my favorite theme parks to visit and I could go every day if you let me! There is so much going on and I’m loving it! It’s the place to be this summer for the whole family!

You definitely need to make a visit to Hogsmeade on these warm summer days because they now have BUTTERBEER ICE CREAM folks! I repeat! They have ButterBeer Ice Cream now!

I can not tell you how excited I was to try this! I was obsessed with trying it the second I heard it was coming to the park.

They have Butterbeer and Strawberry and Peanut Butter Ice Cream now at the park along with Vanilla and Chocolate of course.

I have to this ice cream is the bomb!!! I personally only like my butterbeer frozen or warm, so having it in ice cream form is a dream come true for me. It’s beyond delicious and I could probably eat like 10 of these in one sitting since I am the ice cream queen.

You definitely need to sample the all-new palate-pleasing Butterbeer flavoured hard pack ice cream along with other Butterbeer favorites when you visit the park this summer.

They also have lots of amazing other butterbeer treats like the potted cream butterbeer you see above and the butterbeer fudge you see below.

I of course had to sample all of them and wash it all down with some Gilly Water, which you can also get in Hogsmeade.

After all the tasty treats I went to go practice my spells in the park with my new wand, which I was given at the event.

You can now learn how to wield your wand and cast 15 spells at the interactive wand magic experiences, including two new additions – Incendio (fire-making) and Alohomora (unlocking charm).

You find these little markers on the floor for each spell and stand on that spot in front of one of the shop windows. It and a friendly helper stationed at the marker tell you how to wave your wand to cast your magic spell. You’ll wave the wand and watch something magical happen in the window.

It’s sooooo much fun to do and truly makes you feel magical.

We also got to check out the new Potter Apparel for sale at the park. They have a bunch of amazing apparel inspired by the films, including billowing house robes, house uniforms, hand-loomed cardigans from Scotland, and high-end replicas of Professor Severus Snape’s robe and Hermione’s dress worn at the Yule Ball!

Lastly, I had to check out my favorite shop Honeydukes, as they have the best tasty treats ever!

It’s also the cutest store in the history of ever!

They have everything from “No melt Ice Cream” to a “Witch Hat Cupcake and Cauldron Cake” to enjoy. I want to eat all the tasty treats you see below!

They also have these new chocolate frogs for sale which have a new 2018 wizarding card inside. Look for the gold sticker on the package to make sure you get the new card!

Needless to say I love everything in this store.

I can go on and on about how much I love me some Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood, but you’ll have to go check out all the fun they have in store for the summer yourself!

You can find more info and get yourself some tickets on their website www.universalstudioshollywood.com!

Thanks so much again to Universal Studios Hollywood for having me!
