This week’s Good Eats post is not a food dish but rather a drink.
Butterbeer at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando needs no introduction – especially for Harry Potter fans.
I’ve been wanting to try the HP version for a while now (yes, I was one of those people who waited in line at the bookstore at midnight each time a new book was released) and headed straight for Diagon Alley to grab a cup.
The Fountain of Fair Fortune in Diagon Alley is one of several places where you can find this popular wizarding beverage.
They serve non-alcoholic and alcoholic drinks here along with a souvenir cup that cannot be found anywhere else in the park.
Butterbeer does not contain alcohol and comes in two versions at Universal Studios – regular Butterbeer for $3.99 (cold fizzy drink that tastes like cream soda topped with butterscotch flavored whip cream) or Frozen Butterbeer for $4.99.
Canadians, it’s like Tim Horton’s Iced Cappucino but butterscotch flavour.
Regular Butterbeer in the souvenir cup will set you back $12.
Mr. Kids On A Plane and I preferred the regular Butterbeer – sweet, bubbly and refreshing on a hot and sunny day.
The frozen version was too sweet for us adults but our kids, Miss. L and Mr. C loved it.
The souvenir mug can be used for discounted refills throughout the park – $0.99 for soda and lemonade but if you’re looking for a Butterbeer refill expect to pay regular price as it is not discounted.
Due to the limited menu, lines are short here at the Fountain of Fortune.
If you’re looking for Butterbeer in Diagon Alley and need it ASAP, this is the place to go. And make sure to check out Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour afterwards if you have space for dessert. They have Butterbeer ice cream there!
