One new detail officially 'leaks' about Universal's Diagon Alley
Written by Krista Joy
Universal Orlando announced the Diagon Alley expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter some time ago, but today during a press event about City Walk, Universal officially confirmed one new detail.Tweet
The Leaky Cauldron will be part of the expansion, offering a place to sit down and enjoy a "great, authentic meal."
As Universal officials said it, this photo from the film was presented. Universal executives noted that in the movie, you can only see what the camera allows you to see. The Leaky Cauldron at Universal will include new details that will make it more of a 360-degree experience. The ceiling will even have detailing that will encourage guests to look up.
As we've reported on Theme Park Insider before, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley also will include a London waterfront area with the Knight Bus parked out front, and a working Hogwarts Express train that guests can ride between the two Wizarding Worlds, and a Gringott’s Bank ride.
Universal ended the Potter segment of the presentation by saying that Diagon Alley will be so much bigger than people imagine. The word "huge" was mentioned. This is exciting news, but it is good to know that more details are coming in the new year.
