If you’re looking to buy a rum and Coke or a Tanqueray and tonic at Hog’s Head Pub while visiting Wizarding World of Harry Potter, you can now order them again.

Shortly after WWOHP opened at Universal Orlando, liquor was taken off the shelves because of the high demand of butterbeer, according to Universal Orlando spokesman Tom Schroder. For the past week or so they’ve been phasing it back into the bar. Although, Schroder says its stay is contingent on the demand for butterbeer, which is what the majority of the guests order while there. If it slows down the service of butterbeer, then they’ll have to reevaluate.

Otherwise, Hog’s Head is now a standard full-service bar with options including Cuervo Gold, Smirnoff and Glenlivit. Prices range from $6.50-$7.75.

But if you’re looking for a spiked butterbeer, think again. Schroder says butterbeer will remain non-alcoholic.

When we were there Keith, the queues were fine at 5 mins for what used to be Duelling Dragons and 15 to 20 mins for the Forbidden Journey. The line is continuously moving too so it doesn't seem so bad.
We aren't big ride fans but still spend a couple of hours at Islands Of Adventure every trip just to take in the theming as our Universal Studios tickets covers both parks.....and we always have those tickets as we love US - especially the shows.
