New Girl star Zooey Deschanel and longtime boyfriend Property Brothers contractor Jonathan Scott channeled their inner child on a trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, this week.

“Even Ravenclaws need to have fun sometimes… @unistudios,” she captioned a photo of the couple taken outside of Hogwarts Castle.


Visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter can be overwhelming because there’s so much to do – here are a few tips to make sure you don’t miss out on the best activities.

There aren’t a ton of rides, but fan favorites include the “Forbidden Journey” and “Escape From Gringotts,” which can be found inside Hogwarts Castle and Diagon Alley, respectively. The “Forbidden Journey” ride is one to avoid for those prone to motion sickness as it uses robocoaster technology to replicate the feeling of riding on a broomstick. “Escape the Gringotts” is a roller coaster, multi-sensory 3-D experience. Make time to set aside time to ride it as it is one of the more coveted theme park rides in the world.

Don’t forget to get a glass of the world-famous butter beer. The iconic drink is available hot, regular or frozen.

The interactive wand spells are another “must” when visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. After purchasing a wand, visitors receive a map with spells and spell locations.

Finally, all visitors should make time to ride the Hogwarts Express in both directions. The show features many favorite Harry Potter characters.
