Invisible Ink and Others at Scribbulus

Abbie and I were going wild with excitement as we visited shop after shop at Diagon Alley. One by one we made sure we covered all possible experiences before our vacation came to an end. We came across a teal colored shop that showed off a classic display with parchments, inks, and other stationery. Above it was written 'Scribbulus'.

"Bestie look! Invisible Ink!" I exclaimed at Abbie. Abbie had been looking for a classic looking quill to buy for her bookshelf. She'd seen them on our trip last year and wanted to see if something classic was available. For me the invisible ink was pretty cool. I wanted to see if it was actually available inside. So we entered the shop for yet another awesome Potterhead experience.

One of the best things about the two Harry Potter parks in Universal Orlando Resort is that each shop looks absolutely different from the other. Scribbulus had completely different displays inside. Bottles and jars full of colored liquids sat on a shelf that hung from the ceiling. Quills, parchments, journals, and etc. lined shelves against the walls.

Abbie and I walked our way to a side of Scribbulus as we continued to drool over all the merchandise and something glorious and gold left us stunned and staring. Through an archway the interiors had turned blue and the shop was a brighter shade than Scribbulus. We knew that just like Madam Malkin's and the Eeylops Owl Emproium, Scribbulus too must have connected to another shop from inside, which we were now standing in.

The displays of the shop had changed from the quills and parchments of Scribbulus to Hogwarts's houses' crests. They were each so pretty I decided to take pictures. I wish they'd start selling those ...

The wndow display of the shop had a beautiful and classic model of the Hogwarts Express. They were selling it for real expensive too. I was eyeing around for something I'd want to REALLY buy (because I want to buy everything in some corner of my heart, I only pick what I desperately fall in love with). My eyes fell upon a mug that was very huge. It was a mug but its size made me uncomfortable calling it one. Anyhow, it had a gorgeous giant Hogwarts Express and Platform Nine and Three Quarters on it and was looking absolutely stunning in its shelf. Somehow (and I fail to understand how this happened) I missed taking a picture of it! The shop was also selling tickets to the train, hoodies, other mugs, and etc. It was a pretty large selection of merchandise!

If you ask me this place had a ceiling display which entered my favorites list! The Magical Menagerie (more on that in another entry) and Wiseacre's Wizarding Equipment compete very closely for the top position in my favorite ceiling display list ...

Which leads me to reveal what that beautiful shop was: Wiseacre's Wizarding Equipment! We stepped outside and I immediately looked for a sign that'd tell me what had connected to Scribbulus from the inside. A worn out sign with a moon and stars against the night sky gave me my answer.
Abbie and I both did not purchase anything from the two shops. Abbie ended up deciding the quills could still be a bit more fancier for their price and I ended skipping that Hogwarts Express giant mug because I already had a Gryffindor one at home sitting in my Potter-themed bookshelf.
