Universal Orlando Resort officially announced the expansion of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in May.  The new area has been dubbed Diagon Alley and will bring new rides, a restaurant, and shops based on the Harry Potter Books to the theme park.  Scheduled to open in 2014, Diagon Alley will expand beyond Islands of Adventure, where the current Wizarding World of Harry Potter is located, into Universal Studios.  The new multi-park experience will bring to life some of the experiences and places found in and around London in the Harry Potter books and films.
Let’s dive in and take a look at what is planned at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley.  Details ahead!
