Harry Potter fans will soon have even more magic to explore. Universal Studios recently announced the expansion of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Orlando. Set to open in 2014, the Diagon Alley expansion will be built in the Universal Studios park with a Hogwarts Express train that will connect to the original Wizarding World of Harry Potter located in the Islands of Adventure theme park.
The world’s first centrally-themed, multi-park experience expands The Wizarding World of Harry Potter across both Universal Orlando theme parks and allows Universal’s creative team to bring an unparalleled vision to this unique project. The new area will bring to life some of the experiences and places found in and around London in the Harry Potter books and films, offering brand-new adventures for fans and theme park guests from around the world.
Diagon Alley and ‘London’ will be located within the Universal Studios Florida theme park, which is adjacent to Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park, where guests now experience Hogwarts and Hogsmeade. The new area within Universal Studios will be just as expansive, immersive and authentic as the existing themed environment.
Having just finally visited The Wizarding World of Harry Potter myself last year, this Harry Potter fan can’t wait to see Digon Alley come to life.
