Harry Potter: The Making of Diagon Alley
Universal Orlando Resort’s newest theme park experience, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, will be opening July 8th. I can’t wait to return to Orlando to see this amazing addition to the park. As you know, we recently visited Universal Orlando Resort and the Harry Potter rides were my absolute favorite part. They are amazing! If you are ever able to travel to Orlando you absolutely must stop here.
Universal Orlando Resort announced that guests will be able to cast spells and watch magic come to life in both The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade with brand-new Interactive Wands. Fun!
