Well that's a surprise. hahahahahahha

The new restaurant is the Leaky Cauldron. The new ride is Gringott's. And there will also be the Hogwarts Express which is also supposed to be an e-ticket ride.

Here's an article and photo from Orlando United. http://orlandounited.com/2013/05/08/...-diagon-alley/



Another article from Inside the Magic http://www.insidethemagic.net/2013/0...ringotts-ride/

And more artwork:

I thought they already had part of diagon alley inside the already existing area? IS that not considered DA where the shops are, like Olivanders and stuff?

No, that is considered Hogsmeade, the village near Hogwarts.

The Ollivanders in Hogsmeade is supposed to be just a branch and did not occur there in the books and movies. The Ollivanders in the books and movies was in Diagon Alley.

In the books, Ollivanders is in Diagon Alley, not Hogsmeade. I've heard that they're going to rebrand the current Ollivanders store and open a new one in the expansion, complete with multiple larger rooms doing the wand selection show, given how popular it is and how many wand sales it undoubtedly inspires.

I wonder if this will mean the end of base tickets? Presumably you'll need a park-to-park to go between Hogsmeade & Diagon Alley, and adding another place to scan your ticket seems excessive.
