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)!!!

Paging The Chosen One, Ron & Hermione! Harry Potter Trio Reuniting For New Scenes For The Escape From Gringotts Ride!

harry potter trio film escape gringotts bank

Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson form a more killer combo than the Invisibility Cloak, the Resurrection Stone, and the Elder Wand!

The Harry Potter trio is reuniting once again to film new scenes for the up and coming Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts ride over at the Diagon Alley expansion to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Orlando!

Alan Gilmore, the art director for both the Wizarding World rides AND the films, dished about the trio joining forces one last time:

“They’ll be there! It’s quite exciting. They’re regrouping for one last adventure.”

We'd lock these three up in Vault 687 because they are treasures!

We cannot wait for this ride to delve riders into the bowels of Gringotts!

Even Dumbledore said that, after all, to the organized mind, death this ride is but the next great adventure!

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!!!
