The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley Celebrates Its First Anniversary at Universal Orlando

Happy first anniversary to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando, which opened one year ago on July 8, 2014.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley

An extension on the popular The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade, Diagon Alley not only offered all new Potter experiences, but introduced Hogwarts Express, which connects the two Potter worlds.

Having visited Diagon Alley, I think it’s amazing how closely Universal has recreated the scenes from the Harry Potter films. It really does feel like you’ve stepped into the world of Harry Potter.

Among the Harry Potter celebrities in attendance for the grand opening day were Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Felton, Matthew Lewis, Warwick Davis, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps and Bonnie Wright.
