Diagon Alley Grand Opening from A-Z

Last weeks Diagon Alley grand opening celebration has long past, but I can’t help laughing with childlike giddiness as I replay that wonderful day over and over in my mind. With so many articles out there giving you all a “how to guide” or “top tips” (myself included), I’ve decided to do something new to showcase my indescribable trip through the brick walls of London.

This is my adventure of Universal’s Diagon Alley grand opening from A-Z!

Top 7 Tips for Diagon Alley Grand Opening

You’ve decided to brave the Florida heat and stand uncomfortably close to other Potterheads during the Diagon Alley grand opening celebration. Well don’t worry about it. You are not alone. I will also be in the number plotting ways to get as close to the front of the line as I possibly can. The #Potterwatch phenomenon, which started back in 2010 with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, is once again in full effect for Diagon Alley.

Diagon Alley Soft Opening Watch

Harry Potter-London

July 8th is the big day for followers of the Harry Potter series. If you’ve been hiding under a dozen of rock cakes, then I’m here to remind you about the grand opening celebration of Diagon Alley taking place on that day.

I don’t know about you all, but I love it when a Harry Potter event is on its way. Mainly because of the social media buzz, which grows bigger as fans share and post their own stories and pictures. One of my favorite Facebook pages to view is the Central Florida Slug Club. You will always find new fan pics of Diagon Alley and anything Harry Potter related!

Signs You’re Already Addicted to Diagon Alley

*Disclaimer: for the true Harry Potter fan.*

“You’re a wizard Harry!”

This line is very familiar to the fans of JK Rowling’s Harry Potter series. Those few words spoken by our favorite half-giant led us on a seven year adventure of magical triumphs and divine destinies, all starting in Diagon Alley. I know as a fellow Potter fan I’ve imagined walking the famous alley going from shop to shop and chatting with the citizens of this world. In my mind we’d have passing conversations about the previous defeat of the Chudley Cannons and who was on the cover of the latest issue of Witch Weekly.

Why Harry Potter is the Best!

So Hipsters…I apologize in advance for the Harry Potter overload of stories coming from me for the next few months. I will try to spread them out as much as I can for the Muggles uninterested in the tales of the Boy Who Lived. However, being a Rowling fan and a fan of the wonderful universe she has created makes it hard for me not to want to write as many posts about the Diagon Alley expansion as I can.
