Islands of Adventure Restaurants FAQs

Securing a table at the renowned Three Broomsticks, highly esteemed by Potterheads, is not as direct as you could expect. In actuality, no reservations are available at this enchanting establishment, as they operate on a first-come, first-served basis. Because of this, getting there early and joining the queue are key steps to nabbing your spot and fully immersing yourself in the bewitching wizarding world.

While the name might suggest otherwise, rest assured that all butterbeers at Universal are non-alcoholic. The enchanting drink is a purely family-friendly option, ideal for both children and parents to dive into the world of Harry Potter with each refreshing sip. Its unique taste remains its alluring factor, giving visitors a non-alcoholic burst of butterscotch and cream soda flavors soaked in the magic of Hogwarts.
