This photos are all courtesy of Universal Orlando Resort, but I'll have my very own shots to share very soon. I'm attending a preview party and then spending a day in Diagon Alley this week, so I'll have the inside scoop to share on Friday and beyond. In the meantime, you can follow me for live updates on Twitter via @themeparkwriter and right here in my Examiner column.

Want to start with my first day of coverage of the Diagon Alley media preview event? Just go right here. My coverage from day two, including the opening announcement, is in this article.

Once the big day arrives, admission to Diagon Alley is included with your Universal Studios Florida ticket. You'll see a two park ticket to go to the original Hogsmeade area of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
