The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley Now Open
And so, the adventure continues at Universal Orlando Resort with the grand opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley! When we were at Universal Studios in May they were working on this new addition to the park. I can’t wait to return to experience the most spectacularly-themed, highly-anticipated theme park experience of Diagon Alley! It looks so amazing!
Millions of people have been anxiously awaiting this new addition to the theme park for months. To welcome thousands of guests for the official opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida they celebrated with confetti, fireworks and a red carpet. This fully-immersive area expands upon the global phenomenon launched by Universal Orlando when it opened The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure in 2010.
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley is filled with incredible entertainment experiences for the whole family. You arrive aboard the Hogwarts Express, which takes guests on a journey between the two lands of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and are transported into a spectacularly themed environment. The new area includes incredible shops with windows full of magical surprises, authentic food and beverages, a towering dragon that breathes fire and Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, a new attraction unlike any other that takes you on a mind-blowing ride through the Gringotts vaults – pulling you into an incredible adventure.
