Is your family crazy about the Harry Potter books and films? You're about to add a new destination to the top of your vacation wish list. 

The highly anticipated Diagon Alley is slated to come to life at Universal Orlando Resort in summer 2014. Diagon Alley will be located at Universal Studios Florida, where 'London' has been recreated. Diagon Alley and 'London' will feature shops, dining experiences, and a new ride called Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts. 

Just like in the Harry Potter books and films, you will travel aboard the Hogswart Express from London to Hogsmeade, where you will disembark at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal's Islands of Adventure.

The expansion doubles the size of the area already dedicated to Harry Potter’s adventures at Universal Orlando, which will stretch across both Universal theme parks.
