Diagon Alley Universal Studios Orlando

Diagon Alley, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure is the newest addition to the Harry Potter experience.  Diagon Alley is a street in old London containing shops, eateries, and other places of interest located at the far end of Island of Adventure.

The latest addition is the Hogwart's Express that you can take from Universal Studios and get off at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  You can see it from miles because Hogwart's Castle looms high in the sky above the area which is out of sight of the "muggle" world.

Young and old alike can visit London and explore places such as Ollivander's wand shop and get a demonstration from a wizard or dine a 3 Broomsticks across the street.  There are all sorts of little shops with oddities such as Broomsticks (you guessed it) and Sugarplums Sweet Shop where they sell old world confections.
