The Hogwarts Express has arrived at Universal Orlando Resort. Today, October, 24, 2013, Universal Orlando placed the iconic locomotive and train tender on the tracks between the two theme parks. Just like in the books and films – guests will be able to board the Hogwarts Express and travel between The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade, which opened in June 2010 at Islands of Adventure, and ‘London’ when The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley opens at Universal Studios Florida next year.
Some fans know that the Hogwarts Express has been a stationary attraction since Universal Orlando opened The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Islands of Adventure in June 2010 which I soon visited that year. Now it will run on tracks that are connecting The Wizarding World of Harry Potter-Hogsmeade with The Wizarding World of Harry Potter-Diagon Alley, when park opens at the Universal Studios Florida some time next year.
Do not stay in the Muggle World! Get to Universal Orlando and ride the Hogwarts Express!
