Earlier this year, Universal Orlando announced the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Expansion: Diagon Alley. ‘London’ and Diagon Alley will be located within the Universal Studios theme park, located adjacent to Islands of Adventure theme park, where guests already experience Hogwarts and Hogsmeade. The new Diagon Alley area within Universal Studios will be just as expansive, immersive and authentic as the existing themed environment. The original Wizarding World of Harry Potter and the new Diagon Alley expansion will be connected by a real, live Hogwarts Express train! Guests will be able to travel between the 2 Wizarding World sections and theme parks via the train.
Universal Orlando has officially announced one of the first major details of the Wizarding World expansion. The Leaky Cauldron from the Harry Potter movies will be part of the Diagon Alley expansion at Universal Studios. Similar to the Three Broomsticks at the Islands of Adventure Wizarding World, this restaurant will offer guests a place to rest and enjoy some unique food offerings from Harry Potter and friends.
In addition to new shops and attractions, the Diagon Alley expansion will also feature a ride based on Gringotts Bank! As always, all shops, restaurants and attractions at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter(both sections) are directly inspired by the Harry Potter books and movies. JK Rowling has creative input into these sections of the Universal Orlando theme parks.
Stay tuned here for more details and menus for The Leaky Cauldron at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter: Diagon Alley.
