Universal Orlando has sold its one millionth mug of butterbeer at its Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction, the Associated Press says.
For uninitiated Muggles, butterbeer is the beverage of choice for wizards and witches in J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" novels. As in the books, park attendees can quaff (nonalcoholic) butterbeer at the Three Broomsticks restaurant. Adults, meanwhile, can down real beer and specialty drinks -- including firewhiskey, we presume -- at the Hogs Head pub in the rear of the Three Broomsticks.
According to the report, the Harry Potter attraction, which opened in June, has boosted park attendance 36% in its first three months.
