Updated: How To Sign Up For Your Wizarding Passport at WizardingWorld.com

Pottermore Wizarding World Passport
For the past seven years, Pottermore has been the news and activities hub for everything Harry Potter. It's where we learn the latest news, browse character features, take quizzes, and so much more.

On an interactive level, fans have signed up to the site as a virtual Hogwarts student - to get sorted, discover our patronus, and let the wands choose us.

An epic change to Pottermore was made with the announcement of adding a Wizarding Passport at WizardingWorld.comAs part of their new joint venture with Warner Bros., WizardingWorld.com will take the place of Pottermore's interactive features with our profiles, announcements, and shopping.

Let's a take second to breakdown the new WizardingWorld addition  - the pros, cons, and how to get your passport!


Pottermore Profile
Pottermore has now merged with WizardingWorld.com. This will be our new go-to venture for Harry Potter and its spin-offs Fantastic Beasts and Cursed Child. Fans who already have a Pottermore account can merge their current profile onto WizardingWorld.com or start a whole new account. Your profile will remain the digital hub as it always has been and will be in the future.

All of your Hogwarts traits - house, Patronus, wand, etc. - are transferrable from one site to the other. The process to is fairly simple:
- Go to Pottermore.com and click on the log-in symbol in the top right corner.
- Click to merge your account to WizardingWorld.com
- Enter the email address you used for Pottermore.com.
- Create a new password.
- Fill in your information - Name, Birthday, Country, and sign up / opt out to receive their newsletters.
- You'll receive an email with a special code. Enter the code into their confirmation page.

You can now log in on WizardingWorld.com with your old Pottermore account. If you want to start a new account, you can do so now at Wizarding World.com.

My Wizarding World profile
You received your digital Wizarding Passport. Now what?
Good question. Right now, you can log onto WizardingWorld.com to enjoy and explore your Hogwarts profile. The domain formerly known as pottermore.com now transfers to wizardingworld.com.

What are the differences between the two websites? 
WizardingWorld.com offers an upgraded responsive feature that works well on smartphones, tablets, etc. You can scroll your passport but there's nothing to explore right now if you try to click on your wand or patronus.  You can choose your favorite characters, spells, etc. and share your top three picks with friends. Wizarding World has also now expanded into an app to unlock even more special content.

How do I get the fancy graphic to share?
Log onto WizardingWorld.com. Choose your favorite in each of the total six sections - character, spells & potions, places & transport, beasts & beings, Quidditch team, objects & food. Then select three sections of the total six sections. You'll be given a graphic to download, share on twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

What will be added in the future? 
With WizardingWorld.com as apart of the larger Warner Bros. venture Wizarding World Digital, right now developments are in the works. No word yet on what the next developments will entail.

Will WizardingWorld.come remain free?
For the moment, basic access to our Wizarding Passport remains free. It's unclear if premium options will become available on the site in the future.

In autumn 2019, rumor through a spokesperson with The Leaky Cauldron acknowledged that the site is looking to add products including a premium option. An anonymous source at MuggleNet supposedly confirmed this with news regarding a gold tier access to the site. Both rumors came true with the release of Wizarding World Gold, a new subscription service that gives members  exclusive offers such as entering contests, priority seating to Harry Potter and the Cursed child, member only events, limited edition merchandise, etc. and a welcome kit.

 Stay tuned to this space for more info as it becomes available if any changes come to the WizardingWorld.com.
