Written by Robert Niles
A little over a year ago, we first told you about the possibility of Universal Orlando selling next-generation interactive wands as part of the debut of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley. Today, on Twitter, theme park fans found several posts that essentially confirm that the new wands are coming, to both Diagon Alley and the original Hogsmeade Wizarding World, as we'd reported.Tweet

He posted several more images of the plaques, each featuring a Wizarding spell that could be cast at that point.
If that weren't enough, a Universal Orlando PR rep later tweeted about the training that they're getting for next week's media event.

New wands and wandplay are coming to the Wizarding World. So that will be one more thing for us to review for you when we arrive in Orlando next week for the media debut of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley. Stay tuned!
