This news makes us want to buy a round of Butterbeer in celebration!
Universal Studios Florida had an AH-Mazing announcement yesterday, as Mark Woodbury, President of Universal Creative, along with the V.P. of Universal Creative, Dale Mason, and the set designer for the Harry Potter series, Stuart Craig, revealed that there would be a Leaky Cauldron restaurant as part of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter expansion!
1,000 points to Griffindor!
Our favorite wizard pub will be a fixture of Universal's Diagon Alley addition, and according to Stuart will be completely immersive:
"It’s another great opportunity to walk from one space to another to experience the whole thing. We were able to put detail into the ceiling, encouraging people to look up. It’s a 360 degree experience.”
We wish could use the time-turner and fast forward to when the London expansion to the WW opens, but we don't want to rupture the whole time-space continuum, or spin too many times and run into Voldemort!
Until then we will have constant vigilance for updates!
Ch-ch-check out the entire magical announcement…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
