Harry Potter Expansion is Diagon Alley

Updated: 10 May 2013 06:50:11 AM

It’s official; Universal Orlando announced what has been rumored for a few months.

There is an expansion for the popular Wizarding World of Harry Potter slated to open next year.

The expansion will introduce a new area, Diagon Alley, from the popular fictional series.

Diagon Alley Universal Studios

Diagon Alley

The officially named, Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley will include a new marquee ride, restaurants, shops and the famous train and the adventures that Harry Potter experienced to become a wizard.

One of the major story lines in the series was Harry’s trip from London to Diagon Alley for his wand, Hogwarts Express to Gringotts Bank to get money from his parents and now part of this new part of the Harry Potter expansion.

The location for the expansion is the former Jaws ride, closed in January 2012, which has already shown some construction activity.

Park to Park Tickets Will be Required

Even though the Wizarding World is in Universal’s Islands of Adventure, this new Diagon Alley expansion is located in Universal Studios Florida.

This will be the first time two major theme parks will be connected.

This is where the Hogwart’s Express comes into play; it will be the transport for guests between these two parks.

Just like Harry Potter, guests can ride from London to Hogsmeade and back and experience the journey Harry Potter and other students experienced in the series.

There is currently no set day to open next year, so families making travel plans will have to wait for the announcement until Universal Orlando announces the opening day.

You will want to add the park to park option to the Universal Orlando packages we offer.
