If you’re a parent and your kids are Harry Potter fans, your summer vacation might be magical/wallet-demolishing. Universal Orlando Resort will be expanding their theme park The Wizarding World of Harry Potter this summer to include Diagon Alley. Previously, the park included Hogsmeade, but now attendees will be able to hop on the Hogwarts Express and go to Diagon Alley. And yes, that’s a real Hogwarts Express that will take you from Universal’s Islands of Adventure (Hogsmeade Station) to Universal Studios Florida (King’s Cross). According to the press release, “The journey will be filled with views of London and the British countryside - as well as a few surprises. Park-to-park admission is required.” There will also be the “groundbreaking new, multi-dimensional thrill ride, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts” and the shops of Diagon Alley, which is where the wallet demolition will come in.
