The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando attracts visitors for a variety of reasons, from the fun rides and the souvenir shops to the sheer magic and excitement. But the food may be one of the biggest draws.
While there are many savory meal options such as shepherd’s pie, fish and chips and other British fare, the main epicurean attraction is the sweet treats.
Harry Potter fans flock to the theme park to taste the famous butterbeer (in its many forms), as well as cauldron cakes, pumpkin pasties, fizzing whizbees and more.
We’ve rounded up 21 delicious foods and drinks to try at Harry Potter World, focusing on the more sugary, indulgent offerings.
This list of treats is based on the offerings at the Wizarding World Of Harry Potter in Florida, but a lot of these food options are also available at the smaller Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Japan locations.
Going to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and not trying butterbeer would be like going to Italy and not having any pasta. This iconic cold beverage has a fizzy cream soda vibe and tastes like butterscotch.
Many people prefer the frozen version of butterbeer. As with regular butterbeer, it’s available throughout the park, and you can get it in a souvenir cup as well.
Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlour in Diagon Alley offers a variety of delicious ice creams like sticky toffee pudding, Earl Grey & lavender and of course, butterbeer.

The cauldron cake consists of chocolate cake and colorful orange and yellow frosting frames in a reusable black cauldron.
Another sweet beverage available throughout the park is pumpkin juice, a combination of apple and pineapple juices with pumpkin spice flavors.
