Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Dining At Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Dining At Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Earlier this week, I shared with you the fun activities to engage in at Wizarding World of Harry Potter's Diagon Alley. Today, I want to discuss the food options. The first trip we made, 2 years ago, we dined for lunch at The Three Broomsticks.

Three Broomsticks

Here you will find a nice mixture of dinner options that appeal to both British and American tastes. Shepherd's Pie, Fish and Chips, Ribs, Turkey Legs and Rotisserie Chicken are all on the menu. The prices seemed reasonable, and the portion sizes were fair. The bill for the 4 of us came to $70 for lunch with 4 Butterbeers.

This trip we had lunch at The Leaky Cauldron. 

The Leaky Cauldron

The Leaky Cauldron is really geared towards the British palette. Bangers and Mash, Fish & Chips, Beef, Lamb & Guinness Stew, Cottage Pie and Toad in the Hole were some of the options. If you have picky eaters, I would not suggest taking them to The Leaky Cauldron. Allison was not pleased with the food options, and ended up settling for mac and cheese off the kid menu. In all honestly, Mariah didn't care for her beef stew, as it had way too many herbs mixed in, so I traded her my burger.

You won't find any muggle type beverages on the menu either. If you are looking for a Coke, you'll be out of luck. The beverage options are Butterbeer, Pumpkin Juice, Lemon Squash, Fizzing Orange Juice and a selection of beers for the 21+ crowd. Again, the total was right around $70 for the 4 of us.

There are carts around the park that sell cold Pumpkin Juice. We weren't sure what to expect, but had to try some. Mariah and I loved it, but Jason and Allison thought it was terrible. It almost takes like liquid pumpkin pie, and it is very sweet!

We couldn't leave without a visit to Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour. They have a wide assortment of ice cream flavors, and we were quite intrigued by some of the options. Chocolate Chili and Earl Grey & Lavender grabbed our attention, but we played it safe and stuck with the more traditional flavors. The Salted Caramel Blondie was delicious, but I'd say Mariah got the winning flavor when she went with the Butterbeer ice cream. It really was scrumptious! You can also pick up other Harry Potter Treats here, like Treacle Fudge! Yum!

For any Harry Potter fan, I'd definitely recommend budgeting some vacation money to sample the food. The experience alone is worth it, I think!

Would you be adventurous and try the Chocolate Chili or Earl Grey & Lavender Ice Cream?

    2. my country of Vojvodina actually is leading producer of brooms :) Natural ones, we have tones of those wiry plants that grow around marshes and lakes which are used for brooms.
      I bet I would! :) I haven't eaten icecreams in years, methinks

  8. That looks so good! Mica would flip over this! Do they sell those funky jelly beans that taste like Harry Potter flavors? I could see them being by the door.

    1. They aren't sold in the restaurants, but you can pick them up, along with a ton of other treats from the books at Honeydukes candy shop and The Weasley's Joke shop. Or, if you don't want to go all the way to FL, you can grab some for Mica at Barnes & Noble. I think they sell them for $3 or $4 there. I always pick Mariah a box up for her stocking. She gets such a kick out of them!

  17. The food shown from The Leaky Cauldron doesn't look too appetizing to me but the other foods do. Someday, oh someday, I'm going to make a vacation out of spending several days at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

  19. I needed this post. I'm heading there in 3 weeks so I wanted to know what to do and here this post tells me. :)

  20. We definitely try new things so we'd try both types I am sure. It sounds like decent price for a tourist area.
