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

Universal Orlando Starts Offering Hot Butterbeer
Butterbeer is served several ways at Universal Orlando – cold, frozen, and even as an ice cream flavor. Now, just in time for the colder Florida weather, the theme park is offering the flavor as a hot beverage.
That’s right, you can now order hot Butterbeer at both sections of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
In Diagon Alley at Universal Studios, it will be served at Leaky Cauldron, The Hopping Pot, and The Fountain of Fair Fortune. In Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure, it will be available at Three Broomsticks and Hog’s Head Pub. It will be served year-round.
Since the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade in June 2010, millions of Butterbeers have been sold each year at Universal Orlando. I’m sure this new hot version will help increase those numbers.
Universal Orlando Announces July 8 Opening Date for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley
One of the most asked questions of the Orlando summer – “When will The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley open?” – finally has an answer: July 8.
Universal Orlando made the announcement in a morning press conference.
This date is later than many fans originally thought, but purchasers of special Universal Vacations packages are guaranteed admission to Diagon Alley, even if their travel dates fall before July 8. There will also be soft openings at random times prior to the official opening day.
Once open, fans with a 2-park pass will be able to travel between Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade via the Hogwarts Express train. How fun will that be – you never have to leave the HP realm the entire day, if you don’t want to.
Are you looking forward to the opening of Diagon Alley? It’s only a few weeks away.
