My Potter obsessed kids and I are loving the photos and continual updates from Universal Orlando now that Diagon Alley is now officially OPEN to the public. We love the original Hogsmeade Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It’s beyond incredible and now I can hardly stand how awesome Diagon Alley looks. How fabulous is it that Universal Orlando is giving Muggles like us the chance to have an even bigger taste of the magic????

Check out these official new Diagon Alley photos. I get goosebumps looking at this stuff. It’s all so absolutely brilliant!
And if you haven’t yet caught Meredith Vieira’s 1 hour TV special on “The Making of Diagon Alley”, it’s definitely worth a watch. I’ve seen it re-aired and of course we recorded it so the kids can watch it again and again!
