Here's some steaming hot theme park news from Universal Orlando: the elusive warm Butterbeer is back at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

The warm version of the signature beverage joined its cold and frozen bretheren briefly back in January, when it was offered for a few mornings to attendees of the Celebration of Harry Potter convention. TheĀ recipeĀ disappered into Gringotts vault ever since, but it made a surprise reappearance at breakfast this morning.

The Leaky Cauldron and Hopping Pot inside Universal Studios Florida's Diagon Alley are confirmed to carry warm Butterbeer, and it is also reportedly available at The Three Broomsticks in Islands of Adventure's Hogsmeade.

The drink costs $4.99 for a 12 ounce cup, and comes with the same non-dairy marshmallow foam topping as the original versions of Butterbeer. While there's no official word on how long it will be offered, hopefully it will last through the holiday season.

In case you are curious what warm Butterbeer is like, here is a selfie video of me trying it for the first time earlier this year:
