Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Orlando


In 2014, just four years after Hogsmeade opened in Islands of Adventure, Diagon Alley was made available to the public in Universal Studios. This area in Universal was once home to the attraction Jaws, which closed in early 2012. The new expansion to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter features attractions like Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, the Hogwarts Express, Platform 9 ¾, Ollivanders wand shop, Quality Quidditch Supplies, Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes joke shop, Gringotts Money Exchange and more. The Hogswarts Express actually connects from Universal Studios to Islands of Adventure, so guests that have a 2-park pass can easily visit Hogsmeade from Diagon Alley. 


The day my friend and I went was around Halloween, so Universal was still decorated for the occasion. It also rained during the day which you may notice in the photos, but I feel like it gave Diagon Alley the appropriate look, as opposed to a bright and sunny day.
