Table of Contents
As expected, this magical shop in Olde Mistick Village is filled with magical items. Some items you can expect to find here are cloaks, wands, potions, brooms, enchanted plants, and books. Additionally, you can find some cool apparel here!
If you’re a fan of Harry Potter, you’ll be able to find many Harry Potter items throughout the store. Some of the things you can expect to find here are books, candles, decor, and apparel. My inner child was definitely loving all of the Harry Potter themed items I saw!
As I mentioned above, you are able to buy wands here. They have 21 different styles to choose from, each one unique from the next. They’re all made of different materials that are good for different magical things.
In addition to selling wands, The Cloak and Wand does indeed sell cloaks as well! If you’re interested in buying a cloak, make sure you talk to one of employees to help you!
The Potion Bar
The Potion Bar is a very cool aspect of The Cloak and Wand. Here, you can get some specially brewed potions to enjoy. They offer both cold and hot potions. They’re all quite delicious!
They have a variety of potions on the menu and you can also make your own. If you’re planning on making your own potion, there are 64 different flavors that you can mix and match.
One of the cool things about making your own is they will tell you what kind of potion you ended up making. This is based on what ingredients you chose for your potion. The ingredients, along with the name of the potion, will be printed on your cup when you receive it!
While shopping and getting delicious potions is great, there’s more to this shop than just those two things. Part of visiting this store is about having a magical experience! The shop is filled with decorations and magical items throughout the store to enjoy.
One of the most notable things you’ll notice when you walk in is a large tree in the left corner of the room. This isn’t any old tree though. It’s the witching tree!
A witching tree is a common occurrence in the magical world. It provides protection from dark forces and can provide help and guidance in mysterious ways.
Another interesting thing you’ll see in the store are portraits that seem to move. These are a part of the haunted portraits gallery at the store. If you pay close enough attention, you might catch the person in the portrait moving!
Another interesting aspect of this store is what’s know as “The Dark Corner” which is located down a hallway on the back side of the wall. This hallway houses unique dark magic items. It can be a bit creepy, so I wouldn’t consider this section family-friendly.
If you’re looking for an exciting, magical experience, this Mystic Village shop is a must visit! Whether you’re looking to get a potion, shop around, or buy some fun Harry Potter merchandise, there’s something for everyone to enjoy!
