In June 2010 Universal’s Islands of Adventure opened the Wizards world of Harry Potter-Hogsmeade. The 20-acre park has been an overwhelming success, leading to an imminent expansion of the Universal Orlando Resort. The decision-makers chose to add a second Harry Potter Wizard universe to the Universal Studios of Florida rather than add Hogsmeade in the Islands of Adventure. The modern wizarding world is based on Harry Potter’s books and movies, like Diagon Alley, the Wizarding London market.

Stuart Craig was again taken to direct Diagon’s Alley design by his beloved producer of Potter Films and the Hogsmeade Park area. Diagon Alley is not available, like in books and films. The region next to Lagoon that includes London’s attractions like King’s Cross Station, Wyndham’s Theatre, Square Station and the Eros Fountain from the Piccadilly Circus must first be entered into the London waterfront. Guests walk down into Diagon Alley as they reach the right spot on the London façade.

The Harry Potter-Diagon Alley Wizarding World is Florida’s most comprehensive and immersive thematic environment. There are wizards and restaurants on the streets of this area. A huge Gringotts Bank, above which there is a flaming dragon from Ukraine, is the most striking site. While some of the shop fronts are only façades, many are actual structures to be visited.

The immersive wall experience enables people to use walls (bought in the park) to communicate with several objects in Diagon Alley is one of the most peculiar features. You look like having performed real magic as you wave the wall and see that you turn on the water or have shifted something in a window of the warehouse.

Best Times to Visit Universal Studio Orlando

When is the best time to travel Universal Studio Orlando? The answer is depending on your attitude for example which of these features are important for you: weather, price, crowed or vocation time. Let’s check out all the features.

Those who hate the hot weather are recommended to travel to Orlando from May to July. Orlando’s temperature in these months is good but consider that Florida’s hurricane season accrued in fall’s month so the weather is not pleasured all the days. Also, school recesses and holidays are in December and Orlando is waiting for a lot of tourists and it is packed with people.

Summer is the worst time to visit Universal Studio Orlando because the weather is sultry and school break causes hotel costs to increase.

How Is The Universal Studio Security Situation?

Orlando’s theme parks have enjoyed a decades-long reputation for providing a clean and safe environment for all guests. Over the years the theme parks’ security procedures have evolved, adding layers and new processes. Keep in mind, there are multiple layers of security at all the parks. Some efforts go unseen and procedures we don’t know about. For example, at Universal Studio every guest will go through a metal detector and all bags go through an x-ray machine. When you first approach the security checkpoint it does resemble being at the airport. This security checkpoint is for all guests regardless of if you are visiting the theme parks or just CityWalk.
