What is the Owl Post?
In both the Harry Potter books and films, the Owl Post is the bird-led parcel delivery that witches and wizards use to send one another mail. When it comes to Universal Orlando Resort, it’s a little kiosk at which guests can mail their Wizarding World purchases back to their homes in some pretty handsome packaging that is also (lightly) customizable.
Where is the Owl Post located?
In The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade, which is in Islands of Adventure. (Diagon Alley also has an Owl Post of its very own that opened eight years after Hogsmeade’s.)
What can I mail through the Owl Post?
Almost anything from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter (sorry – no muggle items here). With that said, however, there are a few restrictions to keep in mind:
- Delivery addresses must be in the US
- Not all Harry Potter-related items are eligible – food, brooms, and walking sticks don’t make the owl cut
If you’re committed to sending a souvenir via owl post, be sure to check if it’s eligible beforehand.
What merchandise is sold at the Owl Post?
Although the Owl Post is primarily intended for the shipping of the wizarding merchandise that you’ve already purchased at all of the other myriad, wonderful stores in Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade, there are still a few other items that you can pick up – and mail! – at the shop, such as postcard packs and Christmas ornaments.
There’s a selection of offerings with the mail service, as well. There are two different levels of packaging to send your bundles of joy home in: basic, which includes different (Hogwarts house) colored twine and stamps; and deluxe, which includes wax paper and a seal.
What was the Owl Post in Hogsmeade’s opening date?
June 18, 2010
