I goofed yesterday and forgot all about the webcast I was supposed to attend about Universal Studios’ new Diagon Alley attractions. We are huge Harry Potter fans, so I am beyond excited about this announcement. We will be visiting Universal for a day next month. The last time I was there we basically ran through The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. We were in town and decided to head over there for a quick run-through since we’d never been before.
We were able to visit sweet shop, the castle and we took a photo by the Hogwartz Express before it got dark. I even got myself a butterbeer (I recommend the frozen one – yum!). Loved it so much. It wasn’t enough time to take it all in, so as bummed as I am to be visiting too early for the new attractions, I’m thrilled to be able to return. Plus, now I’ll have the perfect excuse to visit again next year! Now onto the juicy details of what’s to come in the Summer of 2014:
With The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, this expansive, new area will feature something for everyone: a multi-sensory, multi-dimensional new attraction, spectacularly themed shops and dining. We are taking guests on an amazing adventure and journey, using powerful story-telling and innovative technology. In addition, the spectacularly themed area will double the size of the already sweeping area dedicated to Harry Potter’s adventures at Universal Orlando, expanding it across both Universal theme parks. And, just like in the books and films, guests will be able to journey between London and Hogsmeade aboard The Hogwarts Express.
