Hedwig heads to the west coast: Hogwarts opens at Universal Studios Hollywood

All your wizarding wishes and dreams are about to come true.



Listen up! This is not a drill! I repeat, this is not a drill!

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, located at Universal Studios Hollywood, opens tomorrow (April 7)!


Whether you’re a mere muggle, or a self-declared Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw, you probably just lost your mind. (I myself am a Slytherin. As is Mindy Kaling, btw.).


But it’s especially awesome for us wizards who have had to hide our magic for so long.

In The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando, we’ll be able to explore Hogwarts and Hogsmeade Village.


We can stock up on wizarding supplies, ride with dragons, dine at the Three Broomsticks and of course drink a whole bunch of Butterbeer.


It’s a place of pure fun and absolute magic! Just ask Mindy.
