The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley

Are you a Harry Potter fan anxiously awaiting the opening of Diagon Alley at Universal Studios?  You’re in luck!  Universal released a little behind the scenes video containing some images of the much anticipated new section of the park.  Although no opening date has been announced, speculation abounds for a mid-June date.

Diagon Alley will bring to life the London side of the Harry Potter world complete with shops, restaurants, a new state-of-the-art 3-D thrill ride, & Hogwarts Express.  The Hogwarts Express will transport guests from Diagon Alley to Hogsmeade located in Islands of Adventure.  Harry Potter & The Escape from Gringotts is the new thrill ride that will allow guests to be a part of the action as Harry takes a ride through the bank vaults that won’t be soon forgotten.  Guests will be able to stop for a bite at the Leaky Cauldron or have some ice cream at Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlor.  There will be specialty shops for all your magical needs including robes & costumes, feather quills, parchment paper, Quidditch supplies, & wands.  Of course, Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes will have all your toys.

Keep checking Orlando Fun and Food for an announcement for opening date.  I’m excited to explore this new area & can’t wait to take a trip on the Hogwarts Express!! How about you?
