Universal Finally Announces Harry Potter Expansion
At last Universal has let the cat out of the bag and admitted to what most fans have known for months. The expansion at Universal Studios Florida that took over what was once Amity will now be the London of Harry Potter lore. Behind the London facade sits Diagon Alley. The Hogwarts Express will connect USF with the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in IOA. The announcement also confirmed that the massive show building we've all been seeing will become a thrill ride based on Gringotts Bank. A restaurant and several shops are slated to appear in the expansion as well. Can't say we're surprised, but at least fans can begin planning their Potter-filled vacations for 2014 with confidence now.
