The Wizarding World of Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley expansion has revealed its entryway today following the removal of scaffolding.

For the first time we’re seeing the full frontside of Diagon Alley made up of several London buildings connected to one another. On the far left is Kings Cross while on the far right sits Grimmauld Place.

Several more photos, all taken by @UORBuzz Friday morning, give you closer looks at the buildings…




Concept art shows that there will be some foliage placed outside of the entryways, and the Knight Bus will sit there too (possibly with shrunken heads who talk to you).

Next week, Universal Orlando will host a webcast where they’re expected to reveal a slew of new details about Diagon Alley. So far we know that the land will include a Gringotts thrill ride, a working Hogwarts Express train, and The Leaky Cauldron restaurant.

In related news, the theme park released a new teaser trailer yesterday which hints at what attractions you can expect to see in the new land. “If you think you’ve seen it all, think again,” the commercial says.

Universal continues to use clips of Diagon Alley’s iconic brick wall magically opening up like it does in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, which makes us wonder if they’ve found a way to pull that trick off in real life.

Diagon Alley will open this summer in Orlando, Florida. It is located in Universal Studios, the neighbor of Universal’s Islands of Adventure where Hogsmeade resides.

By the way, did you see this writer’s package from Universal?
