Let’s review what we already know:
- Universal Orlando is opening an expansion to its very popular “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” theme park.
- The current theme park features Hogwarts and Hogsmeade. The current park resides within “Islands of Adventure”.
- The expansion will feature Diagon Alley and will replace the “Jaws” theme park within the main “Universal Studios Florida”.
- In addition to Diagon Alley, the Hogwarts Express will take visitors from Diagon Alley (in Universal Studios Florida) to Hogsmeade (in Islands of Adventure).
However, what wasn’t entirely clear or certain until this point was that, in addition to Diagon Alley and the Hogwarts Express, the expansion will also include a “real life” Leaky Cauldron.
Let’s let that sink in for a moment. At LeakyCon 2014, which is a fan conference named after The Leaky Cauldron, we will actually be able to visit (and eat!) at The Leaky Cauldron.
Certainly, Universal Orlando also announced that there will be an attraction (i.e., ride) based around Gringotts Bank, but really… THE LEAKY CAULDRON.
In short, if you haven’t gotten your tickets for LeakyCon 2014 yet, NOW. IS. THE. TIME.
Get them here. Get them now! Hope to see you there!
