Diagon Alley opens to Harry Potter fans at Universal Studios Florida

Thousands of happy Harry Potter fans transformed Diagon Alley into a street party — and an endurance test — as Universal Studios' new attraction opened its gates Tuesday. Parkgoers stood in a snaking queue for at least two hours to get into the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Diagon Alley. By early afternoon, the park's posted wait for the Escape From Gringotts ride reached 450 minutes.

I love when they do stuff like this: Jaws references in Diagon Alley: http://www.orlandosentinel.com/travel/attractions/theme-park-ranger...86923.post

I've been looking for the imprint of the 20,000 Leagues Nautilus in the rock work of the queue for the Little Mermaid ride at Magic Kingdom, but haven't found it yet.

Went last weekend and going back tomorrow. Last weekend I don't remember much (vodka :)..) but I remember the train being amazing . The crowds were unreal. I suspect Universal will be hitting the 10 million/ year milestone pretty soon.

I remember the first time I saw the salute to Kong on Mummy...I love that stuff as well, almost like having a mini-history museum on-ride...

The only reason I'll ride The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh at Disneyland is to see Max, Buff, and Melvin from the Jamboree.

Dave Dragon, go Dave Dragon, and the Star Force Five!
