See the Weasleys experiencing Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida

The three Weasley siblings, Fred, George, and Ginny (or at least their real-life counterparts, James and Oliver Phelps and Bonnie Wright) returned to the world of Harry Potter as they toured the new Diagon Alley area in Universal Studios Florida with Thierry Coup, Senior Vice President of Universal Creative, and Alan Gilmore, Art Director of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the Harry Potter films.

Click the video accompanying this article, which shows the three actors marveling at the richly themed land and discussing how well it represents the Diagon Alley of the movies. You'll see the goblins in Gringotts, food in the Leaky Cauldron, the inside of the Hogwarts Express, and of course the famous Weasleys' Wizarding Wheezes shop.

Diagon Alley is slated to open soon, with vacation packages starting on June 29 and a media preview and event from June 17 to 20. It promises to be a huge draw, so expect crowds and long lines if you plan to visit this summer. However, judging from the peeks that have slipped out so far, it will be well worth it.
