Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson of One Direction perform on NBC's "Today" at Rockefeller Center on August 23, 2013 in New York City.

Everything about this is what makes them beautiful.

One-hundred points to Gryffindor! (Clearly, all the prank-loving 1D dudes would be in Gryffindor).

After stopping by Universal Orlando resort Monday to perform on the Today show, the guys of One Direction decided to have some serious fun, so they also dropped in on Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter -- and they got way into pretending to be Hogwarts students.

Accio social media proof! 

1. Louis dressed up as a Hogwarts student, because world-famous boy band members know a good idea when they hear it.   

2. According to fans, a costumed Louis was also the unofficial safety officer on one of the rides. 

3. Niall, meanwhile, got in touch with his inner Fred and George Weasley.

4.  Finally, Liam Payne declared himself a wizard. 

 

I'm a wizard!

Sadly, One Direction's very own Harry (Mr. Styles) doesn't appear to have made the trip -- or maybe he was just under an Invisibility cloak.
