The new section is called Diagon Alley. It will feature places and experiences that Harry and his pals have in and around London and include a major ride based on Gringotts bank.
So far, the park is releasing information in dribs and drabs, but the design of Diagon Alley/London is being handled by the same creative crew that made magic on the first “Wizarding World,” which opened in 2010.
Also new: some kind of Hogwarts Express train that will transport visitors between the old and new Harry Potter worlds. Stay tuned. www.universalorlando.com.
