The Owlery/Dervish and Banges
These two shops are combined into one category because they share the same building (along with Ollivander’s Wand Shop). Inside these walls, you will find approximately 17 different character collectible wands, along with a selection of about 13 non-character wands, that each cost $44. Interactive wands are available here, too, for $50.
But there’s more to Dervish and Banges than just wands; it also offers Hogwarts’s house-related items, like robes in sizes from XXS to XL ($115), scarves ($39), t-shirts ($22 to $32), sweatshirts ($60), ties ($32), and pillows ($29). You can also find a battery-operated Master Book of Monsters for $35. Lastly, there are stationery items available, such as quills ($40) and Hogwarts’s house journals ($17).
What about Ollivander’s Wand Shop?
Ollivander’s Wand Shop in Hogsmeade is home to an interactive wand experience. Although it has the theming of a shop, you cannot actually purchase anything here. (Instead, wands are sold at the adjacent Dervish and Banges – even those which have chosen a wizard.) Visit our Ollivander’s in Hogsmeade page to learn more.
Filch’s Emporium of Confiscated Goods
In this store, which also serves as the exit to Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, you will find some of the “darker” items and more unique t-shirts related to the Harry Potter series. Specialty hats, like The Sorting Hat and Dumbledore’s Hat, are $30, and other caps are $25. Toys and puppets – including the Weasleys’ car, Omnioculars, and Hedwig hand puppet – range from $17 to $35. Various mugs touting the Ministry of Magic, Azkaban, Hedwig, and the Tri-wizard tournament range from $13 to $28. Hogwarts houses, muggle, wizard, Ministry of Magic, and Fluffy t-shirts can be found for $22 to $32. You can also find a Harry Potter chess set for $60 and a Golden Snitch for $19.
Because getting into the souvenir shops at Hogsmeade can be a bit difficult, several outdoor merchandise kiosks were added. These offer various items, including wands ($44), key chains ($10 and up), collector pins ($8 and up), and lanyards ($11).

A reader’s experience with her Hogsmeade merchandise
Aleahn, one of our readers, posted this information about what her family purchased at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade on their trip in 2012. We have included it here to give you an idea of what you might spend once you are on-site (please note that the prices have since gone up):
Here’s a pic of our Hogsmeade purchases I took in the hotel before we packed up on our last night:
- Two wands at $37 a piece
- Two Butterbeer mugs, $8.99
- Lemon Drops, $13.80
- Pygmy Puff, $15.93
- Gryffindor #7 t-shirt for me (just subtle enough that only real fans will know what it is!), $29
- Hog’s Head mug, $11.49
Also bought, but not pictured:
- Universal fridge magnet, $3
- SpongeBob beanie, $14.86
- Patrick beanie, $14.86
- Hogwarts crest Christmas ornament (family doesn’t know about this – surprise for Christmas!), $17
We spent around $213 on souvenirs. The kids both received $50 gift cards for Easter, so they bought some of the above with them. I didn’t have a hard and fast number, but we stressed only picking a few things and bought on the last day so we had a chance to see what all was available. We also bought a few gifts for those at home, but I’m not including those.
I feel we got our money’s worth from the Butterbeer mugs. We bought those early on the first day and used them as our refill mugs for all three-and-a-half days. We drank a lot of free water from them! We were really the only people I saw using them outside of Hogsmeade, although I’m not sure why. We clipped them on a carabiner that was attached to the backpack. It worked well for us.
Word of caution
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. Last but not least, a decent selection is also available for purchase from Universal’s official online merchandise store.
