There is not doubt about the fact that the Harry Potter fan base is one of the biggest in the world!

Come on, just yesterday J.K. Rowling pulled a Beyoncé and dropped a new short story about 34-year-old Harry out of NO WHERE and the internet pretty much freaked out!

So, it's no wonder that the opening of the brand new Diagon Alley theme park at Universal Studios Orlando was a HUGE deal.

People lined up hours before and as soon as the gates opened, they sprinted inside while crying happy tears of joy.

So, you weren't able to be there for opening day? Well, have no fear because we've got everything you may have missed in one convenient place for you!

Filed under: Harry Potter

You might be saying to yourself "where are my dragons?!" and the answer is in the Diagon Alley expansion at Universal Orlando!

But the answer to when the The Wizarding World of Harry Potter's London expansion at Universal Studios will finally and officially be opened for good has just been unveiled (by the way, "unveiling" is what we'd like to do to Sirius Black).

You can get on a broom, or let a Ford Anglia drive or fly you the way down to Universal Orlando on July 8th! OMGinny! That's so soon, we don't even need a Time-Turner!

The announcement came this morning at an event that featured Matt Lewis (Neville), the Phelps twins (Fred and George), and Evanna Lynch (Luna)! Whoa, Gryffindor party of four!

And here's another magical tip: the grand opening for Muggles will be in July, but vacation packages are allowing guests to get their magic on as soon as June 29th!

Can't get your Wizard fix after hearing this? Then ch-ch-check out some photos from the new addition (above)!!!

Filed under: Film FlickersHarry Potter

This ride looks so Sickle!

Universal just released a first look into their upcoming ride, Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, from the Diagon Alley expansion that's opening this summer, and Merlin's Beard, it looks incredible.

This ride has everything we could want and more! A Bellatrix cameo, security trolls, and even a face-to-noseless-face interaction with none other than Voldemort himself!

Basically, we're going to relive some key, exciting moments from The Deathly Hallows, as if they were bringing the movie back to life with the Resurrection Stone!

Ch-ch-check out the first look video that delves deep into the (above) and then check out the latest stills (below), which include a first look at the ride vehicle!

The Today Show Reveals A Rare Look At Gringotts Bank From The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter & The Diagon Alley Expansion!

Filed under: TV NewsHarry Potter

This first look at Gringotts Bank just cast a spell on us, Griphook, line, and seeker!

Starting May 13th, and over 6 days, the Today show is going to be showing "clues" for xfinity users featuring the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, including the Diagon Alley expansion.

The commercial, featuring Al Roker, has some pretty big reveals, especially for Gringotts! You can take that to the bank!

This little preview had one thing that cast a fire in our hearts more intense than Incendio. One word, two syllables: Goblins. They're animatronic, and definitely hard at work! Keep it up, you little guys you!

We cannot wait to see more footage released like a Dragon from the bowels of Gringotts. Speaking of which, there's a dragon at the end of this ad. Is this from the new ride or dost our eyes deceive us?!

Wait, there is more footage? We'll never forget this day, Pensieve or not.

Ch-ch-check out more animatronic Goblins courtesy of Universal…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter Releases Magical Details About The Hogwarts Express! You Will Aguamenti Your Pants When You Find Out!

Filed under: Harry PotterGIFs

Merlin's Beard are we excited for this expansion to open up, especially after the deets that have come out today about the Hogwarts Express!

Not only will guests get to experience the countryside while riding from King's Cross station in the London expansion being built at Universal Studios Florida to Hogsmeade over at Islands of Adventure, they will get to see characters and creatures along the way.

But there's more! There are actually two experiences for everyone riding the 200-seat Hogwarts Express that's nearly identical to that in the movie: one for the trip to Hogwarts, and the other for the trip to London!

And we know for sure that we're going to get to see Hagrid ride his flying motorcycle, the Knight bus stuck in London traffic, and the Weasley twins riding their brooms (we'd love to ride their brooms, too…wink!).

Bloody brilliant! And it won't even be in 3D! It will be real scenes acted out.

Also making an appearance on your ride will be Buckbeak, a Dementor attack, and maybe, just maybe an experience similar to the candy trolley!

Chocolate frogs for everyone! Gotta catch 'em all, right?

If you're not overcome with enough positive emotions to conjure a Patronus, then get a load of this! Just like passing though Platform 9 and 3/4 in the movies, you'll get to walk through bricks to board the train! Or at least it will appear like you're running through walls.

VP of Corporate Communications for Universal, Tom Schroder, put it like this at a recent press event:

"I don't want to give it away, you have to experience it. But you'll see people…Transition through the wall, and you'll transition through the wall as you go to the platform."

We need a good Wingardium Leviosa to raise our jaws from the floor.

Ch-ch-check out some more in a preview released by Universal today…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
