20 Things You Probably Didn't Know About The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter

Easter eggs from the movies and books are hidden throughout the park for the curious muggle willing to find them.

Posted on

1. In Zonkos Joke Shop, you can hear whispering coming from Extendable Ears hanging over the register


If you want to take some home with you they are for sale in the shop. Along with screaming yo-yo's, a decoy detonator, and nose biting teacups


4. If you look at the window to the left of the Three Broomsticks, you can see pots and pans cleaning themselves


Be sure to get your butterbeer in here as well. The line is much shorter than in the streets of Hogsmeade

5. Once inside The Three Broomsticks, if you look up towards the walkway on the second floor you can see shadows of house elves


The owners of the inn probably wouldn't like you throwing your socks up there but I doubt you would be the first

6. After your fill of Butterbeer you may find yourself heading to the single restroom in Hogsmeade. However, you won't be alone as Moaning Myrtle can be heard whining and complaining from both the Men's and Women's


It may be best to warn young children of her presence because she is quite loud and may be frightening to little ones.

7. Looking up to the windows of Dominic Maestro's Music Shop, one window has a cello playing itself and another has sheet music flying around


Before opening a shop in Hogsmeade, Dominic attended Hogwarts and received an award in 1943 (the same year Tom Riddle opened the Chamber of Secrets)


14. Next to the Owl Post, in the window you can find a holographic howler that will yell at you for not having your Hogsmeade permission slip


19. In addition to confiscated items, Filch has maintained extensive records on mischievious Hogwarts students, located on the shelves throughout the store

20. While this gown in the window of Gladrags Wizardwear is not hidden at all, true fans will recognize it as the dress Hermione wore to the Yule Ball in Goblet of Fire

Well that's it! That should keep you busy while you await The Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley! Coming Summer 2014
