The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade.
Restrictions and access
None; no Express Pass access.
Two sentence insider summary
These two 10-minute shows are performed on the outdoor stage between Hogsmeade Village and Hogwarts castle. Neither show is overly impressive or engaging (the Spirit Rally features performances by the Beauxbatons and Durmstang Students; the Frog Choir is just that — a frog choir), but fans of Harry Potter will enjoy seeing another aspect of the books and movies brought to life.
Show schedule and other information
This is tricky because, of all the performances at Universal Orlando, these two are the only popular shows for which Universal does not publish times in their in-park guide map. That being said, the two shows generally alternate once an hour. You’ll have to check with Universal team members inside the Wizarding World for more information. UPDATE: Hey, Universal now has the next show and its time on their electronic displays (there are five of these displays around Islands of Adventure).
OI fun fact
In December 2012 a stage was finally added to the performance area. Now it is very easy to get a good view of the shows from any distance. That being said, try viewing them from the Dragon Challenge queue above the stage to get a new perspective!

I love this! I love love loveee the Tri-Wizard spirit rally! I am a dancer myself and the little performances were great! Definitely reccomend this to anyone who wants to take a break from the rides(although, who wants to do that? :) )!
Wonderful Addition...When You Can Catch the Show
Love this addition! It is so fun to watch and really brings one of my favorite books to life! The sound could be a bit better quality. If you aren't standing right in front, it just sounds jumbled with the noise of the crowds but what you can see is awesome! The biggest issue is that you don't know when it's going to happen so you can't prepare to stop there and witness the magic. Because of that, noticing it has started (again, because of the noise level during busy hours) is difficult so by the time you get over there to see it, usually you have missed most of it. For something that is marked on the map, it seems silly to let most park guests miss this.
The Frog Choir and the Tri-Wizard Spirit Rally are my wife's favorite attractions in Hogsmead. She has a thing for frogs and thought they were the cutest ever. I thought the Team Members did a great job singing and acting for both shows. It's a must see when in Hogsmead and really show you support for them!
The TSR & FC are really cute to watch. They bring back memories of the fourth book and movies. The costumes are very close to what they appeared as in the movies. It fits right in with Hogsmeade.
Hogsmeade's best and brightest
These shows are another enchanting way that Universal gets a set of giggles and squeals out of the fans of this amazing franchise. I only caught the last part of it (I was on the line for the Forbidden Journey) as the performers were taking their leave in character, of course. My only flaw with these wonderful shows is that IOA does not give any published times for the show. While I understand that part of the magic of the WWoHP universe is that element of surprise, and I'm sure knowing ahead of time would create a little bit of a traffic jam, but I'm sure guests like myself would like to know when the shows will happen so that something this wonderful does not get passed up by guests who are bum-rushing their way into the Forbidden Journey ride. I wouldn't want anyone to miss this, please give us a hint! I can't wait to go see it again
Froggy Good Fun!
I'm so excited to read a stage has been constructed so you can see the Frog Choir better! My main complaint when I stumbled across one of the performances in 2012 was that it was VERY difficult to get a good view of the show, especially once it had begun and the crowds had settled in. (I'm 5'2" and could barely see the choir.)
What I HEARD, however, was wonderful. The Frog Choir is a nice additional touch and gives your WWoHP experience another dimension. If you can figure out when the times are, it is worth seeing.
