Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley Media Preview To Be Held June 17-20

Breaking news! A friendly FedEx owl from Universal Orlando dropped off a parcel this morning containing an invitation to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Diagon Alley media preview, scheduled for June 17-20. Here’s a look at the lovely package, which included tickets for the Hogwarts Express and a “gold” bar from Gringotts bank:

Diagon alley media preview invitation

 

The Diagon Alley media preview being held June 17-20 implies that the official grand opening may occur on Friday, June 20th (since they would want media present to capture the crazy crowds) or immediately after. But the invitation does not explicitly say “grand opening,” so it is possible Universal could pull a Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and keep the public out for some time after the press. Keep an eye on our PotterWatch series for more information as it becomes available!

    If Seth goes missing soon, I’ll fully expect Derek Burgan to show up wearing glasses and a fake Kubersky wig. This preview looks amazing. Thanks for sharing. Please continue to keep up posted as usual.
