Who’s Hiding at 12 Grimmauld Place?

We are first introduced to the Black residence at 12 Grimmauld Place in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. The ancestral home of Sirius Black and his family becomes the headquarters for the brotherhood of Voldemort-fighting wizards. The house is concealed from the view of Muggles by means of a charm.

Muggles visiting Universal Studios Florida’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter, however, can clearly see the residence as they make their way toward Diagon Alley.

Woe to those who look straight ahead but never up! A lingering glance at the second floor windows of the house will reveal that someone is watching from behind the curtain.

Wait another few seconds more, and it is revealed to be Kreacher, the malicious house elf who is bound to the Black family and their residence.

One reason I love amusement parks is because of delightful details like this. Don’t forget to look up, down and all around!

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is located within the Universal Studios Florida theme park (6000 Universal Blvd, Orlando, FL). Telephone 407-224-4233. The park is open 365 days a year. Operating hours normally begin at 9:00 am and closing times vary.
