It's almost time. Harry Potter fans will soon be able to visit Diagon Alley, the latest addition to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Florida. There's a media preview from June 17 to 20, and special vacation packages start on June 29, so that means that muggles will soon be able to explore London and hop aboard the Hogwarts Express to get to Hogsmeade.
In the meantime, Universal just released another teaser video to whet fans' appetites. Click it to learn more about the process of bringing this new area to life. The original attraction in Islands of Adventure is very true to the Harry Potter movies, and Diagon Alley promises to follow that trend. It will have plenty of shops, a restaurant, and of course its own signature ride, housed inside a Gringotts building that's topped with a fire-breathing dragon.
Once the new area opens, it will be included with a regular Universal Studios Florida admission ticket. If you want to move freely between the two Harry Potter areas, which you can do aboard the Hogwarts Express, you'll need a two-park ticket. It's a great deal, as both parks have plenty of fun non-Harry attractions, like Spider-Man and Transformers, as well.
