Diagon Alley - Universal Studios Florida


This unimposing stretch of buildings holds a secret

That purple bus?  What purple bus.

Let's head in here

Through this brick wall...

Welcome to Diagon Alley

The Leaky Cauldron

Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes

Really neat store

You can get your school robes here

The Daily Prophet

Ollivander's Wand Shop

Look at all of the wands

Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees performing

Quality Quiddich Supplies

Heading into Knockturn Alley

Borgin and Burke's specialies in Dark Arts trade

People are starting to file into Diagon Alley

Time for a drink

Escape from Gringotts is the main attraction in this area

Just look at the beautiful lobby of Gringotts Bank

The ride is essentially a rollercoaster, but it is really so much more

The dragon is so cool

Time to head into Kings Cross Station

Lots of presents on the loading platforms

We finally make our way onto Platform 9 3/4 and meet Hedwig

Time to hop on the Hogwarts Express to Hogsmeade
