I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite parts of vacations is getting memorable pictures. When it comes to visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, there are so many magical photo spot locations that you do not want to miss out on!
So I’ve put together a list of my top 20 photo spots at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, including the most iconic ones like Hogwarts Castle and the Hogwarts Express as well as lesser known one like special feature walls in Dragon Alley! Whether you’re wanting vacation pictures or pics for Instagram, these Wizarding World of Harry Potter picture spots are perfect for your next trip to Universal Studios!
1. Hogwarts Castle
Of course the first photo spot at the Wizarding World has to be the Hogwarts Castle! My favorite place to take a picture with Hogwarts is on the bridge. Not only is this a great photo spot because of the view of the castle, but it’s also one of the few places to get a photo without people in the background.

Not only is Honeydukes a great place for Wizarding World sweets, but inside Honeydukes makes for the cutest Instagram pictures. It’s filled with bright colors and tons of Harry Potter themed treats that make for the cutest photos!
3. Outside of Honeydukes
While at Honeydukes, be sure to take a picture outside of the shop. You’ll get the beautiful Honeydukes sign in the photo as well as the pretty green windows. Honeydukes is easily one of my favorite photo spots at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and I make sure to take pictures there on every trip.
4. Behind the Three Broomsticks
This is one of my favorite hidden photo spots at the Wizarding World! It has such a great view of the Hogwarts castle nestled behind the beautiful green trees. You can find this photo op behind the Three Broomsticks restaurant.
5. Hogwarts Express Train
All aboard the Hogwarts Express! A picture with the Hogwarts Express trains should be at the top of your Wizarding World photo lists. There are two trains at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. This one is the stationary train that’s locating inside Hogsmeade, and the other is the one at Kings Cross Station that transports you from Hogsmeade to Diagon Alley.
