How to Save on Dining at The Three Broomsticks

For Couples/Groups of 2: First, the Great Feast is definitely too much food for a couple to devour, so we recommend going with the Chicken & Ribs Platter ($16.99) and splitting it. One of us usually eats the chicken, while the other eats the ribs and we equally split the corn and potatoes. It’s perfect for lunch and won’t leave you feeling so stuffed that you can’t ride any of the roller coasters. Another option is to choose two kid’s meals.

Groups of 3: The cheapest option is for each person to get a kid’s meal. Another option would be to get the adult Chicken & Ribs platter, plus 1 kid’s meal. Pair the Chicken & Ribs meal with a kid’s Chicken Leg meal and everyone can share the sides. The corn from the platter is on the cob, so you made need to take it off the cob to share. Each meal on the children’s menu includes grapes and applesauce as well and it’s half the price of most adult meals.

For Groups of 4+: The Great Feast is honestly the better deal. The additional servings at $15.99 per person (after 4 people) is a bit pricier, but they are optional. We had a group of 5 eat the standard platter for 4 and were just fine. It also may be cheaper to get another meal (or sides) instead of paying the additional serving charge, as a Smoked Turkey Leg, Rotisserie Smoked Chicken Platter, and Beef Pasties with Garden Salad are all a little cheaper than the additional serving cost. Another alternative is to order an extra side or a kid’s meal instead of paying the costly additional servings charge. You can always tack on that extra meal (or extra sides) and still split everything among your group.

Butterbeer: The price of Butterbeer has gone up considerably since the first few years that WWOHP has been open – in fact, Butterbeer is more than double the price it originally was! Our only recommendation here to save money (if you absolutely want to try it) is to split it with someone.

Drinks: If you don’t want to pay for any drinks at the Three Broomsticks (or other park restaurants), we suggest bringing your own refillable water bottle to refill throughout the day or by purchasing Universal’s refillable souvenir cups ($16.99) that allow unlimited Coca-Cola freestyle beverages at participating locations around the park. Just refill those before heading into the Three Broomsticks. Regular tap water at the restaurant is free.

Breakfast: The cost of the Three Broomsticks breakfast is much higher than many lunch or dinner entrees. To save money here, I would recommend sharing one of the larger meals (between 2 people max) or ordering a kid’s meal instead. Waiting until lunch to eat here could be another option.

Dining Plan: Lastly, Universal offers dining plans starting at $25.99+. The $25.99 plan allows for 1 quick service meal which includes an entree and drink (the Three Broomsticks is a QS meal location), 1 snack, and 1 drink. So for $25.99, you get 2 drinks, a snack, and an entree which could normally equal around $30+ on average had you purchased these things individually. If you were to get the most expensive items possible for each credit, you could easily spend nearly $40 without the dining plan. Plus, sharing is caring and if one person gets a dining plan and shares their meal & other drink credit, that’s even more savings for the both of you. This can easily be split between a parent and child, couple, or between multiple children.

For the $34.99 dining plan, you get the unlimited Coca-Cola freestyle cup instead of the single drink credit, plus the QS meal and 1 snack. These plans can be used at any of their parks or on CityWalk (select locations). Be sure to grab a park map or use the park app to find exact locations that dining plans can be used at.

*Snack items are considered as popcorn, ice cream, frozen beverages, Butterbeer, churros, Cinnabon, etc. from food carts or Quick Service locations.

Review

Simply put, theme park food and drinks can be pricey, but the Three Broomsticks is one of our favorite places to go – not only as fans of the Harry Potter series, but because the selection and taste. We prefer lunch/dinner here, as we have had a poor experience at breakfast (cold food – it is less busy however!).

As far as how busy this restaurant gets, we recommend eating outside of standard dining times – avoid around noon or 6-8pm. During the summer, spring break, or holidays, expect lines to be much longer than normal no matter what time you go, but the best times to go during the busiest seasons is when they first start serving lunch (usually around 11am) or at the end of the day prior to closing.

Guide: QS = Quick Service
