What is The Hopping Pot?

One of the best-kept secrets in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is Diagon Alley‘s The Hopping Pot – the perfect place to grab a hot or cold Butterbeer (depending on the season), or one of the land’s other specialty drinks. This quick-service location tends to have a shorter line than some of the other spots (though The Fountain of Fair Fortune takes the crown in this regard), and the picnic-table seating provides a wonderful opportunity to watch young witches and wizards perform some magic with their interactive wands – as well as providing a partial view of the stage where Celestina Warbeck performs.

Where is The Hopping Pot located?

In The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, which is in Universal Studios Florida.

The Hopping Pot – hours and reservations
