Diagon Alley expansion at Universal Orlando park gets an opening date!

Attention all Harry Potter fans! Today Universal Orlando Resort released the official opening day for their Diagon Alley expansion! Starting July 8th, you can now visit Diagon Alley! This marks the completion of the first big expansion to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter section of their parks!

As all Harry Potter fans know, Diagon Alley is the shopping hub for all wizarding needs. It`s also home to the wizard bank, Gringotts. In the expansion, you can journey through London streets, visiting locations such as The Leaky Cauldron, and even Grimmauld Place, home to Sirius Black! The Knight Bus can also be seen in this expansion, and will feature a small stage show to be performed throughout the day!

Diagon Alley features an assortment of shopping such as Weasely`s Wizarding Wheezes joke shop, Madam Malkin`s Robes for All Occasions, Magical Menagerie, and Quality Quidditch Supplies. Are you a fan of the dark arts? Then visit Knockturn Alley and check out Borgin and Burkes!

One of the main focuses here is the Escape from Gringotts roller coaster, which features Harry Potter and friends as they try to escape from the Gringotts vaults! But the main focus of this expansion has been the Hogwarts Express. If you purchase a 2-park ticket, you can actually board the Hogwarts express and take it over to the Hogsmead section of the theme park!

As someone who has been a HUGE Harry Potter fan all my life, this expansion is something that I have been mega excited for ever since they announced the plans! So what do you guys think? Are you excited to visit Diagon Alley? Let me know in the comments!!
