Universal CityWalk at Universal Studios Hollywood is open to guests despite the theme parks remaining closed. And even as more COVID-19 restrictions are being implemented in LA County, a bit of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is coming to Universal CityWalk for the holidays.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Sweets & Treats pop-up is open for take-out orders only. Guests can order traditional cold, frozen and hot Butterbeer options ($8) served in a regular to-go cup or souvenir stein ($14).

This walk-up shop was originally only going to be open on the weekends but is so popular it will now be open daily from noon to 8 pm.
