Wizarding World of Harry Potter Expansion at Universal Orlando Resort will Include Leaky Cauldron Restaurant
In May 2013, Universal Orlando announced the Wizarding World of Harry Potter Expansion as Diagon Alley. We’ve been awaiting more details ever since!
During a media event today, Universal Orlando officially announced that the Leaking Cauldron from the Harry Potter films will be part of the Diagon Alley expansion. This restaurant will offer guests a place to rest, enjoy some unique food offerings while immersed in Harry’s world.
From earlier announcements, we know that Diagon Alley and ‘London’ will be located within the Universal Studios Florida theme park, which is adjacent to Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park, where guests already experience Hogwarts and Hogsmeade. The new Diagon Alley area within Universal Studios will be just as expansive, immersive and authentic as the existing themed environment.
And – just like in the books and films – guests will be able to travel between ‘London’ and Hogsmeade aboard the Hogwarts Expressin The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley. In addition to new shops and experiences, there will be an attraction based on Gringotts bank too! All elements are directly inspired by the fiction and films.
We can’t wait to see what details will be revealed next! We hope to see some concept art and menus soon for The Leaky Cauldron.
In the meantime, check out the huge new expansion also announced today for Universal Orlando CityWalk!
