In the Harry Potter books and movies, Diagon Alley is where young wizards and witches attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry go shopping for their supplies before the start of the new school year. Many of these stores and their merchandise have come to life in the incredible, immersive experience that is The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, which provides a voluminous amount of one-of-a-kind items faithful to the Harry Potter series.
To start our discussion, we’ll look at some of the items and location where you can buy Wizarding World merchandise outside of Diagon Alley, and then we’ll head to the London waterfront. And you don’t want to miss our photo gallery at the bottom of the page, which features over 100 full-screen images.

Word of caution – shop size
The most important thing you need to know about shopping inside The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is that the shops are small in every sense of the word. The purpose of their intimate size is to reflect their “boutique” nature and stay true to the stories you’ve read. While this sounds great on paper, we’re sorry to say that it can be extremely uncomfortable in practice, particularly for guests requiring special assistance. It literally takes no more than a dozen people to fill up any one of these shops, and with thousands of Potter fans visiting the area each day – well, you can do the math. That’s why, if browsing through the merchandise inside Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley is something you’re greatly looking forward to, it’s absolutely essential that you read our how to ensure your trip to the Wizarding World is a success! page.
If you do find that the shops inside Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade are simply too packed for you to navigate them comfortably, remember that you can buy Wizarding World merchandise at the front-entrance gift shops and at the Universal Studios Store in CityWalk. In addition, you can purchase select items in the Universal stores at the on-site hotels and at the Orlando International Airport.
