A trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort wouldn't be complete without enjoying a  Butterbeer. A perfect day at Universal Studios Florida starts with a visit to Diagon Alley and a Butterbeer.  We like to start our day with a ride on Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts when wait times are low due to our early access to the parks as a resort guest.

Enjoying a Butterbeer at Universal is just one of the many ways to feel immersed in this magical world. Butterbeer comes in six delicious forms of tasty treats! Which version should you try? Each treat offers something unique, so the Me and The Mouse Team is here to give you a full breakdown of Butterbeer at Universal Studios and where to find it in the Wizarding World.


The traditional cold drink (secret recipe) is often described as a cream soda with butterscotch and shortbread flavors. It’s a sweet concoction that is a refreshing treat as you explore the streets of Diagon Alley.  

*Available at Leaky Cauldron, The Hopping Pot, and The Fountain of Fair Fortune (Diagon Alley)
*Available at Three Broomsticks, Hog's Head Pub, and Butterbeer street carts (Hogsmeade)


If you need something a little colder, try the frozen butterbeer. This is a slushy type drink is served with whipped topping on top and a perfect way to cool off on a hot summer day. You can even purchase yours in a souvenir tankard if you'd like a keepsake to take home.

*Available at Leaky Cauldron, The Hopping Pot, and The Fountain of Fair Fortune (Diagon Alley)
*Available at Three Broomsticks, Hog's Head Pub, and Butterbeer street carts. (Hogsmeade)


When the weather gets chilly, this seasonal Butterbeer (only available during the winter season) is sure to warm you up and be a tasty treat as you wander the streets of Hogsmeade.

*Available at Leaky Cauldron and The Hopping Pot (Diagon Alley)
*Available at Three Broomsticks (Hogsmeade)


One of our favorite options is Butterbeer ice cream. The flavor is different from the drink.  It’s similar to salted caramel vanilla ice cream. It’s not overly sweet and a great treat in the middle of the day.

*Available at Florean Fortescue's Ice-Cream Parlour and  The Hopping Pot (Diagon Alley) 
*Available at Three Broomsticks (Hogsmeade)


If you love fudge, you won't want to miss this Butterbeer sweet treat. Butterbeer fudge has two layers that are reminiscent of shortbread and butterscotch. You can buy a block or as many pieces as you desire. While your there, pick up a few chocolate frogs or Bertie Botts!

*Available at Sugarplum's Sweet Shop (Diagon Alley)
*Available at Honeydukes (Hogsmeade)


This sweet treat is a traditional British dessert with a Harry Potter Twist. With a smooth, creamy texture, this delicious dessert is often compared with butterscotch pudding (although the texture is a bit more airy). It is served cold in a small mason jar with a dollop of whipped cream on top.

*Available at Leaky Cauldron (Diagon Alley)
*Available at Three Broomsticks (Hogsmeade)

Whether you choose to enjoy Butterbeer at Three Broomsticks Pub like Harry, Ron, and Hermione did or savor some ice cream as you explore Diagon Alley, you won't want to miss out on these exclusive treats only available at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Orlando.
