I know it's been a badly kept secret but it all sounds great. I am very excited to see how it all turns out. Yet another excuse to keep going back

Its really thrown a spanner in the works, we were going to give Universal a miss next year. Might have to price up a day ticket for both parks now.

Glad the rumours are true. Had been thinking of giving Universal a miss when we go in 2015 to save some money but that won't happen now!

I wonder when in 2014 it will open? Im sure it will be very busy most of next year.
We're going next summer but plan to skip Universal. Not sure when our next trip is after but im sure we'll go back one day and see it.

After visiting Universal last October my boys are now hooked on Harry potter so much so that when we got back they begged me to buy the box set and we had a HP wk end!
After that they have watched the films at least 3/4 times a week!!
So they are very excited about diagon alley coming to Universal!

Never really been that excited about Harry Potter and we haven't been to Universal for years, but the new expansion will make it a 'must do' next time we go to Orlando.

Very clever marketing. Lots of people like me who don't care for Universal have visited just IOA on a one day ticket just to see the Harry Potter part. Now you'll need a two park ticket to see it all. Genius really.
