Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Discover the two faces of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

If you’re one of the millions Harry Potter fans around the globe, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Florida is bound to be heading your must-visit list!

As you most probably already know, Universal has two Harry Potter parks – Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley.

Wondering whether they are any different? The answer is YES and here’s what you can expect from each park!

Hogsmeade vs. Diagon Alley in a nutshell

Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley allow you to experience two entirely different sides of the wizarding world.

Hogsmeade (2010) is the first and much larger of the two Universal Harry Potter parks. Cobbled streets, snow-capped rooftops and a magical castle – that’s the peaceful & mystical world of Hogsmeade Village.

On the other other hand, there’s Diagon Alley (2014) – the newer addition to the Harry Potter world. It’s the polar opposite – buzzing, crowded shopping district, bustling with life…feels just like London but with some added flare of magic!

In the end of the day, there’s no better way to compare the parks than to experience them for yourself…
