Today is the big day for Harry Potter (and Universal Studios) fans. After years of construction, speculation and patience, Universal Orlando Resort officially opened The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida this morning.
Confetti, fireworks and a red carpet lined with Diagon Alley team members welcomed thousands of excited guests as they entered the all-new spectacularly-themed land for the very first time.
Guests visiting The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley can arrive aboard the Hogwarts Express, which takes guests on a journey between the two lands of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
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.
