Right up Your Alley
Muggles, magicians and Potterheads are spellbound by Universal's new Diagon Alley.
Muggles and magicians take note: Universal Orlando spared no expense in making sure you feel fully immersed in Harry Potter’s world— Diagon Alley may just be its best attraction yet. Just behind what appears to be an ordinary street in London awaits an alley of pure imagination. Visit a wand shop, dine at the Leaky Cauldron and venture inside Gringotts Bank for a 3D, animated roller-coaster ride. Then, follow in the footsteps of Harry Potter as you leave his London flat and head to Platform 9¾ at Kings Cross Station, where the Hogswarts Express will take you on an action-packed ride to Hogsmeade at Universal Adventure Islands. Park-to-park pass from $130; 6000 Universal Blvd., 407.363.8000, universalorlando.com
Diagon Alley, featuring the ride Escape from Gringotts, is now open
at Universal Studios Orlando.
