    My family is planning a trip to Universal Studios because my sisters wants to go to Harry Potter Land. Can anyone tell me how much Olivanders Wands or Chocolate frogs cost?

    Except 'how much does a wand cost' isn't that simple to answer because there's multiple types.

    Unless the answer you want is 'really freakin expensive' across the board since, y'know, prices are jacked to hell on everything inside the park.

    Well that's kinda hard to say right off the top of your head unless you
    A) work in that specific store in that specific location, or
    B) Your there right now.

    Prices and merchandise do change.

    The last time I was there was in 2011. At the time, my Sirius Black wand was about $15 if I remember correctly. I chose that one because I really liked all the runes on it, and it looks fairly neat next to my collection of the books.

    I'm more focused now on finding out how much chocolate frogs are. I'm thinking about getting a few for a few coworkers depending on how much they are.

    I still can't believe they replaced Twister with freaking Jimmy Fallon. He's not funny!

    I still say if Star Wars Land is going to be that big, it should be it's own theme park like Disney's California Adventure.

    What other available land does Disney have in Florida, aside from the abandoned water park with all the brain eating bugs?

    There is still a bunch of un-developed land that they could convert to a 5th gate, but honestly, Hollywood studios needs the bump and I would assume that adding to an existing land is much more cost effective then getting the infrastructure set up for a new place.

    The Happily Ever After show at Magic Kingdom was INCREDIBLE. Favorite parts were the Moana segment (that stingray breaking my heart all over again) and hearing James Earl Jones' booming "remember who you are" set to that incredible opening of "Go the Distance".

    My sister and her nieces go to Disneyland every summer. I've never been due to my disgust of people (especially kids) in general. But she wants to take me next year because she knows what a huge Star Wars fan I am. So would it even be worth going for me?

    I'd honestly wait until Star Wars Land officially opens because man if you think you hate kids now being constantly surrounded by swarms of them will bring it to a whole new level.
