Universal Orlando Resort announced today that the long-awaited opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley is scheduled for July 8, 2014.
The opening includes the Hogwarts Express, a first-ever attraction/transport that moves guests between two theme parks (Hogsmeade Station at Islands of Adventure and King’s Cross Station at the Universal Studios Florida park), and Gringott’s Coaster, as well as new dining and retail.
The opening of Hogsmeade Village at Islands of Adventure saw record breaking lines just to enter the park (more than 8 hours). We expect the situation at Diagon Alley to be similar.
Stay tuned for more information as we get it, follow us on Twitter at @TouringPlans, and in the meantime enjoy the promotional video Universal released today:
