We Are Giving Away a Commemorative Harry Potter Wand! Enter Here

Edited: November 3, 2014, 1:53 PM

Update: Contest is now closed. Congratulations to Chris Larys!

Today's giveaway is a commemorative wand from the 2010 opening celebration of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, plus a signed copy of our guidebook, Theme Park Insider Visits The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Potter wand

Here are the rules for the giveaway:

To enter today's giveaway you will need to reply to the thread with the answer to the following question:

"If you had a horcrux, what would it be?"

Daniel Radcliffe did an AMA (Ask Me Anything) Q&A session on Reddit this week, and someone asked Radcliffe that question. (He congratulated the Redditor for asking a Harry Potter-related question that Radcliffe never had been asked before!) I loved that question, too, so I decided to ask that of you, here.

I will pick the winner by selecting one eligible entry at random at the deadline. (I will contact the winner via your email address in your registration profile. If the winner does not respond to me within 48 hours, I will disqualify that winner and pick another one, until I get someone who does respond.) Once we have a winner, I will post that to this page. The deadline for this giveaway? Let's make it Sunday at 3pm PT. Good luck!

We've got two more giveaways to go! Tomorrow, we will be giving away a Dooney & Bourke Mickey Mouse handbag. We hope that everyone is having a fun time playing along with us, and that many of you are getting to know the new version of our website.

If a Horcrux is supposed to be something meaningful that would hold part of my soul, my Horcrux would be my copy of my favorite book of all time, Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card! Awesome story; changed my life!

Still waiting for the obvious silly-version answer....

Come on, what's a wildly expensive object of dark magic that would be the appropriate place to imprison part of the soul of a theme park fan? (evil laugh)

This was a tough question for me to answer, but I would have to say the Elephant Juju I got at the Adventure Trading Company back in August. Even though I got it recently, it's still a special souvenir for me.

My horcrux would have to be the souvenir rifle that I got from Adventure Land at the Magic Kingdom on my first trip to Orlando when I was six. I had to carry that with me every time I rode the Haunted Mansion to feel safe! LOL It's lasted this long and still is played with by my eight nieces and nephews. If it can hold up that well for this long, nobody could destroy it so I should be around FOREVER! LOL

My horcrux will be the model that I eventually build showcasing my dream of a two-sided Möbius strip rollercoaster.
