Though I do wonder how closely Butterbeer ice cream is going to turn out to Ben & Jerry's Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch.
Smart move for the bottom line, Universal.
I am grateful that they will be serving Butterbeer in Diagon Alley. It's hard to make my cup of the frozen stuff last while walking from Hogsmeade to the Studios park.
Butterbeer ice cream? Sign me up!
Especially if you are stuck in part of a park like Harry Potter and are unwilling to leave the area on high-capacity days (when crowd management leads to a line just to get in), it's nice to know there are a number of food and drink options right there.
They will take food from a place almost no one goes to and use it in Diagon Alley, but most people will never know the difference.
Only us die-hards catch these things...
(Just noticed anon poster 188.8.131.52 had the same idea - maybe Finnegan's won't be as empty as I hoped!)
You know, I may even request a table for six at Finnegan's just so I have an extra chair for my aching feet! ;)
