It's a new year and time for a new poll at the Universal Orlando Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park website. The new poll asks fans :" Which would be your favorite place to shop in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter?"

Your choices are Honeydukes, Ollivanders, or Zonko's Joke Shop. To Vote click here.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park attraction is under construction in Orlando, Florida and will be open sometime in 2010.

i voted for the wand shop just because i like Diagon Alley more then Hogsmead.
if they don’t have weasley’s Wizarding wheezes I’ll be disappointed!

OMG, of course Olivanders, i so want to see what they have for wands and stuff. I think it would be the most magical. Honeydukes is all cool two but we have enough candy, and zonkos would be cool too but i like Olivanders better.

it would be a big mistake to not include Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes i think.
honeydukes is the 2nd choice.

Honeydukes! How can you pick anything but Honeydukes!! (IMHO, of course, LOL)

In Zonko’s, its not like they can really duplicate the affects of the jokes… it will be only visual (besides, WWW would’ve been better!). Olivandars would be a one-time thing for most visitors. I mean, how many times can you go shopping for a wand? But Honeydukes… there’s so much there, you can actually taste stuff, and they can keep things changes so its always new! How fun.

The scores are still pretty close, so I would not be at all surprised if all three are incorporated. it’s very smart on the parks part, to offer the fans all these polls… it makes us fee very involved!

It was a tough choice, but I chose Ollivander’s. It just seems more magical. I’m pretty sure we all want to walk into Ollivander’s and buy a wand just like Harry. So — Ollivander’s ftw!! (2nd choice would be Honeydukes)

Olivander’s!!!! i want my own wand
im fed up of using chopsticks or twigs :P

zonkos is just poor compared to W W W
and honeydukes would be good but nowhere near as good as Olivanders, i mean we could have a real old man as Olivander :)

hopefully they build all 3

Well it really depends on the products that the shops will be producing. I think Honeydukes could possibly be the most realistic, because do you think that the Zonko products will really be anything close to the ones mentioned in the book?? And sure, I think it would be awsome to be able to buy your own wand… but, then… what would you do with it? Now I think it could be amazing if you could use your wands to interact with certain objects and other items around the park! That would be terrific! So it is difficult for me to make an educated decision on just one shop without more details… but I’m not worried… they’re all amazing!

I’m gonna vote Ollivanders because Honeydukes is just a sweet shop and not very intresting to me. Zonkos Joke Shop is quite apealing to me but Ollivanders win because we can obviously buy wands and I think they could do a sort of thing where the wands are electrical and can be waved and can like open doors and light up stuff. In Pottercast they talked of a game out somewhere where you go there get a wand and walk round the centre and just battle and play with stuff and all. I really hope this theme park isn’t just a few rollercoasters and a couple of shops. I hope they use their brains for this one as I’ve been to the theme parks over there and were great especially Disney Land with the castle. I hope Hogwarts will be explorable. It would be cool.
