This Harry Potter Hack is the best - the secret drink is AMAZING

1. The Secret Drink Concoction | Harry Potter Hacks

Firstly, the Wizarding World Of Harry Potter is home to many secrets and hidden surprises, and one of the most popular is the Deathly Hallows secret drink. This special concoction can be found at the Hogs Head in Hogsmeade. Three kinds of Harry Potter beers are mixed in a special way to create the “Triple”. Once called the Deathly Hallows, guests may no longer order this drink by that name. Instead, we must call it the “Triple”. Not sure why or what happened, but it’s the same drink. Start with pale Strongbow Cider, followed by a beautiful amber Hog’s Head Brew, and finally topped with a dark Guinness. Above all, this is my favorite beverage that you can secretly get in the Wizarding World (must be 21+ to order this beverage).

Hogwarts Castle up close - you can get a tour with this Harry Potter Hack

2. Private Hogwarts Castle Tour

Whether or not you’re a Potterhead, you’re sure to geek out over this experience – and all you have to do is ask! No added ticket or fee for this one. Before or after you ride Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, approach a ride attendant outside for a castle tour. These tours are only generally available when the park is quieter (not as busy). Still, it’s always worth asking, so make sure you do when you visit. They will show you all the finer details you may have missed about the castle along with a tour of the various themed rooms of the attraction – this is a must, and it’s free!

Harry Potter Hack with the phone booth is a winner - its so cool!

This is a unique opportunity for guests to immerse themselves even deeper into the world of Harry Potter. To use the phone box, simply pick up the receiver and dial 62442. When prompted, say “Ministry of Magic,” and you will be connected to a real person who will be able to help you with your magical needs. Call the Ministry of Magic telephone box for an unforgettable magical experience! 

Gringotts Bank in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

4. Exchange Your Money For Gringotts Bank Notes

I literally screamed when I found this out – how cool is this! One of the best ways to immerse yourself in the experience is by using Gringotts Banknotes. Trade your U.S. currency for Gringotts™ bank notes in $10 or $20 denominations to be used for purchases within Diagon Alley™ and Hogsmeade™ and at select locations throughout Universal Orlando Resort. Unused wizard money can be transferred back into U.S. currency at Guest Services. So whether you’re looking to buy a Butterbeer or some magical souvenirs, make sure to pick up some Gringotts Banknotes on your next trip to Universal Orlando!

Owl Post In Harry Potter World has to be one of my favorite Harry Potter Hacks

5. Send Owl Post - How Cool | Harry Potter Hacks

One of the best ways to experience Harry Potter Hacks is by sending Owl Post. Guests can purchase stamps and write letters at the Owl Post office, which will then be delivered by an “owl” to their recipient. You can find this open-air spot on the right after entering the Hogsmeade Village. If you hit Olivander’s shop, you have gone too far. While you are here, be sure to look up and check out the owls waiting to send out your post. This is a great way to send a personalized message to friends and family, and it’s a fun way to get acquainted with the Wizarding World.


*Addresses must be in the US, and only Harry Potter-related items can be shipped. Plus, not all of the associated items are eligible. Food, brooms, and walking sticks are not suitable for owl mail.
