When the Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened in 2010, the first thing Albus Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) said he wanted to do when visiting the then-new theme park was to grab a mug for himself.

And apparently, a lot of other park guests had the very same idea, as Universal Orlando has just announced that they’ve sold their 20 millionth Butterbeer.

From the official Universal Orlando Blog…

In 2010, our guests took their first sips of Butterbeer when The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade opened at Universal Orlando Resort. Today, eight years later, I am excited to share that we have officially sold our 20 millionth Butterbeer in Orlando!

Creating Butterbeer was truly a labor of love. Our culinary team worked tirelessly to ensure that Butterbeer was completely authentic to the Wizarding World. It has quickly grown into a “rite-of-passage” for all witches, wizards and Muggles who visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Seeing the popularity and success of this beverage has been an amazing experience. But the real magic starts when we see the reaction on our guests’ faces when they try Butterbeer for the first (or 20 millionth) time. When our guests don their frothy mustache and a smile, it’s truly the sweetest treat.

And throughout the years, we’ve created additional delicious treats celebrating the beloved Butterbeer flavor. Along with our original cold and frozen varieties, there’s also Butterbeer soft-served ice cream, fudge, potted cream and the seasonal Hot Butterbeer.

Any way you want it, Butterbeer is the perfect treat for wizards, witches and Muggles alike. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Here are some of our fans’ favorite Butterbeer memories in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando:

“My favorite Butterbeer experience was my first one in 2013! I was celebrating my 27th birthday & my first Wizarding World visit during a Universal Orlando vacation. Now I live in Florida, & as a passholder, I get to enjoy Butterbeer every time I visit, but my first one will always be memorable & meaningful.” – Nikki S.

“After our first trip to Universal Orlando, my sister posted that she may need a “Butterbeer Support Group” when she got home. There isn’t a variety that doesn’t like and trust she has tried everything Butterbeer. Her favorite is the Hot Butterbeer!” – Casey A.
