Whether you’re a Harry Potter™ super-fan or you’ve barely heard of the boy wizard, you can’t fail to be astounded when you set foot in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ – Diagon Alley™.
Located at Universal Studios Florida®, this is just about as close to actually living in the enchanting world of wizards and witches as you can get!
Enjoy a cold Butterbeer™ at the Leaky Cauldron™, shop for your own Harry Potter™ wand at Ollivanders™ and hang on tight for the most exciting experience of all – the multi-dimensional thrill ride Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts™!
Plus, with a Bonus Ticket you can travel between both lands of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ by riding the Hogwarts™ Express# between King's Cross Station in Universal Studios Florida® and Hogsmeade™ Station at Universal’s Islands of Adventure®!
You definitely don’t want to miss this ride, which brings to life the Harry Potter™ books and films!
The adventure begins before you even enter Gringotts™ bank, as you pass beneath the massive fire-breathing dragon at the far end of Diagon Alley™!
The inside of the bank is exciting enough, but just wait til you get to the vaults.... You’ll be taken on a perilous journey through cavernous passageways that lead deep underground, trying to evade malicious villains along the way.
It’s every Harry Potter™ fan’s dream come true – you can actually take a real train journey on a replica of the Hogwarts™ Express#!
The Hogwarts™ Express connects The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ lands, so when you take the journey you’ll be travelling from one Universal Orlando® theme park to the other. Even the departing “train stations” are true to the Harry Potter™ books and films!
If you’re taking the journey from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ – Diagon Alley™, you’ll board the Hogwarts™ Express at King's Cross Station. Just like in the books and films, you’ll walk straight through a solid brick wall onto Platform 9 ¾™ and be shown into your passenger compartment.
The view from the train windows is different depending on which way you’re travelling! Along the way you’ll have views of the English countryside and London, as well as some unexpected surprises along the journey! (Remember, you'll need a Bonus Ticket in order to ride the Hogwarts™ Express#)
To ride the Hogwarts™ Express# you need a ticket that includes admission to both Universal Orlando® theme parks. This is included with all Universal Orlando Tickets booked through FloridaTix
The Leaky Cauldron™ serves traditional British food such as cottage pie, fish and chips or bangers and mash. And don’t forget to try a frothy Butterbeer™!
Bored of the usual vanilla or strawberry scoop? This quaint ice-cream parlour is where you need to go! With fabulous flavours like sticky toffee pudding, apple crumble, Butterbeer™ and loads of other unique and wonderful chilly treats, you’ll have a tough choice on your hands!
You can also grab some breakfast here if you arrive in the morning; choose from continental breakfast foods, pastries, Pumpkin Juice™, teas and water.
This is the magical shop where Harry Potter™ was chosen by his wand.
Ollivanders™ has a special collection of Harry Potter™ wands, as well as the original favourites. Some of the wands you’ll find here include:
Make sure you get to see (or even take part in) the wand experience, where a few lucky guests have the opportunity to try out a few spells with various wands until the right wand “chooses” them!
You will want to buy one of everything in this colourful joke shop owned by twin pranksters Fred and George Weasley! Filled with magic tricks, jokes and toys, you can buy Pygmy Puffs, U-No-Poo, Skiving Snack Boxes, and more.
Enter if you dare!...... This infamous shop on the gloomy Knockturn Alley is home to a sinister collection of Dark Arts objects.
Here you’ll find ominous items like Death Eater™ masks, skulls, and costumes - perfect for performing some dark magic!
Get your very own magical creature that’s straight from the pages of a Harry Potter™ book!
The Magical Menagerie is filled with plush toys of every kind of wonderful animal you could imagine (and some you couldn’t!), as well as wizarding pets like Crookshanks™, Fang, Buckbeak™, Fluffy and Scabbers™.
Choose from cats of every colour, Hippogriffs and unicorns.
Want to become a real wizard? The first step is to dress like one! Madam Malkin’s will kit you out with all the wizardwear you could want, as well as Hogwarts™ school uniforms and other apparel inspired by the four school houses of Gryffindor™, Ravenclaw™, Hufflepuff™ and Slytherin™.
Tip: If you only buy one thing from here, make it a wizard’s hat from the finest and most fashionable assortment in Diagon Alley™!
Come to Wiseacres for all your wizarding necessities! Here you can pick up crystal balls, telescopes, binoculars, armillary spheres, hourglasses and lots more!
Everything you need to become a master of the wizarding world’s favourite sport! Quidditch™ fans will be in their element, with Quaffle balls, Quidditch™ brooms, Golden Snitches, Bludger bats, outfits and team souvenirs.
