07/09/2014

Today, Universal Orlando announced that The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley will officially open on July 8 – allowing guests to experience even more of Harry Potter’s adventures in an all-new, magnificently-themed environment.  Located in the Universal Studios Florida theme park, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley will feature shops, dining experiences and the next generation thrill ride, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts. The new immersive area will double the size of the sweeping land already found at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, expanding the spectacularly themed environment across both Universal theme parks – and guests can journey between both lands aboard the Hogwarts Express.

Sweet & Savory Treats At New Harry Potter Park

Food at the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter-Diagon Alley park at Universal Orlando Resort is based on traditional British cuisine, with some unusual twists inspired by the Harry Potter books and films. And it’s very different from the American fare on steroids a few steps away at The Simpsons’ Springfield area of the theme park, where the menu includes ginormous doughnuts, burgers and beer.
