Although everyone is excited about the new Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts coming to Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida this year, rides like Gringotts and the Hogwarts Express aren't the only big draw. The new area will also bring several stores to life directly from the pages of the Potter books and the big screen. Here's what you can expect:
Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes: Get all your jokes and novelties here. This store will absorb the merchandise from Zonkos at Islands of Adventure, which will make way for a Honeydukes expansion.
Madam Malkin’s Robes for All Occasions: Want to dress like a wizard? Buy your authentic wizard robes and character costumes here. Items will include Hogwarts uniform jumpers, scarves, and ties.
Magical Menagerie: Adopt a new plush animal friend. You'll find everything owls to Hippogriffs
Wiseacre’s Wizarding Equipment: This store is packed with essential equipment for wizards. You'll find telescopes, compasses, binoculars, armillary spheres, hourglasses, and magnifying glasses.
Quality Quidditch Supplies: Prepare for a game of Quidditch with apparel, brooms, and equipment like Golden Snitches, Bludgers, Bludger bats, and Quaffles.
Scribbulus: Write in style with authentic writing implements likes feather quills, ink, inkwells, journals, bookmarks, seals, parchment paper, stationery sets and postcards to let everyone back home know just how much fun you're having on vacation at Diagon Alley.
The new area will also feature an Ollivanders Wand Shop, just like its counterpart next door at Islands of Adventure. You can get a peek at the Diagon Alley exterior walls if you come to the Harry Potter Celebration from January 24 to 26. It's included with your regular park ticket.
