More information can be found at the Salt Lake Moms blog.
Harry Potter: Christmas in the Wizarding World is already attracting a large amount of people to visit the display. The event opened to select parties on November 8 and opened to the public on November 9, 2017 and will remain open until January 31, 2018.
If you are looking to go, it is suggested you park on the east side of the mall (near the south side of the mall) and enter the mall. Go down the stairs to the main floor and it will be right there next to a JCPenney. The line begins there to enter the Wizarding World. On its opening day, some waited up to 2 hours to get in.
Once in, you are free to explore the small area filled with candy, pins, shirts, mugs, stuffed animals, and more. Ollivanders Wands is a small area filled with wands. There is even a man there to help you find your perfect wand.
For the kids who are visiting (or the adults who want to have fun), there is a small game of Quidditch to play (throwing the ball through the rings).
If you are looking for a unique experience in Utah, put this on your list of places to see.
