The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is a place like no other. Entering into Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley makes you feel like you’ve stepped right into the books or the movies. Today, we are going to take a journey through Diagon Alley!
Slightly hidden, is the entrance to Diagon Alley. If you aren’t paying attention, you might miss it! It’s safely hidden from the muggles’ eyes.
As you enter into Diagon Alley, the first thing you will notice is the dragon sitting atop Gringotts Bank. Make sure to keep an eye on him…He might greet you with a fiery surprise!
Speaking of Gringotts Bank…did you know that you can go UNDER the bank?! Escape from Gringotts is an immersive indoor roller coaster that takes you on a journey under the bank! Be on the lookout for dark forces all throughout the ride, and you might ever run into a dragon! It is my favorite ride at Universal Studios, and one that you do not want to miss!
Have you ever wanted to have your own wand? Head over to Ollivander’s Wand Shop to purchase your very own wand. There are so many unique wands to choose from, or you can choose one of the famous wands used by any of the wizards in the Harry Potter Series. You can also go to Ollivander’s wand shop and watch as a wand chooses the wizard. Who know…the wand might choose you!
All throughout the streets of Diagon Alley, you can find unique shops that are full of wizardly merchandise. My favorite shop in Diagon Alley is Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes! This is a shop that is run by the pranksters Fred and Weasley! Here you will find a lot of tricks, potions, practical jokes, and more all for creating mischief.
There are many other stores in Diagon Alley, but one another that you will find very interesting is Borgin and Burkes. Take a stroll down Knockturn Alley, where you will find this old and dusty store. Here you can find skulls, Death Eater Masks, and more dark magic items. Also located in the shop is the famous Vanishing Cabinet. Listen carefully…you might hear something inside!
Looking for somewhere to grab a bite? Head over to the Leaky Cauldron where you can get fish and chips, bangers and mash, Toad in the Hole, and more!
Looking for a snack or for the famous butterbeer? There’s several places around Diagon Alley to grab a cup or snack including The Hopping Pot, The Fountain of Fair Fortune, Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour, and more.
Diagon Alley is truly a magical place. You really feel like you are right in the movies or the books. If you are a Harry Potter Fan. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is not to be missed!
