You've read all the books, watched all the movies, and even own a magic wand with unicorn hair. Harry Potter fans know what's like in the magic world. If you're looking to meet other witches and wizards around Florida, these events and locations will make you believe in magic again. 

Some of these events and places require you to wear your cape and show your wand. Remember you can't talk magic language with common Muggles. Gather your friends and feel safe talking about Quidditch and other topics only people in the wizarding world understand.
