This brand-new exhibit promises to be different than any of the Harry Potter-themed experiences you’ve had in the past. Visitors can expect “beloved authentic props and costumes” while enjoying “innovative, awe-inspiring, and magical environments and installations.” The level of technology and attention to detail allows for a “highly personalized” adventure.

There will be dementors, The Forbidden Forest, and even more new galleries not available in other Harry Potter experiences. Time Out acknowledges the exhibition is an effort from Imagine Exhibitions in partnership with Warner Brothers, guaranteeing authenticity.

According to Harry Potter: The Exhibition‘s FAQ page, the journey usually lasts about 60-90 minutes, depending on Guests’ exploration and self-guided decisions. Of course, a gift shop sells merchandise exclusive to the exhibit, but it will also have some familiar favorites. Think Chocolate Frogs and Butterbeer! Wands are happily permitted inside the venue.

Harry Potter: The Exhibition is coming to New York City this summer after a popular engagement in Atlanta, GA. Internationally, the exhibition previously visited Vienna, Austria, and will debut in Paris, France, this month.

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
