by Tad on July 8, 2014

It's a VERY BIG day in theme park history.The Wizarding World of  Harry Potter™ - Diagon Alley™ has officially opened! For those of you who brave the crowds for this momentous occasion, we wish you luck -- and hope you are well fueled and hydrated as the lines are sure to be long!

I cannot wait for ALL OF YOU to experience Diagon Alley. All of us here at the Frog Pond plan on bringing you Diagon Alley tips and touring plans in the days and weeks to come, since this will be the most packed place in all of Orlando for a good long while! While we don't know yet how the Universal Orlando® Resort plans to handle all of the crowds, rest assured my parents, that's Leap and Mommy Frog to all of you, will be watching closely and taking notes for all of you! In the meantime, I wanted to share with you more of the Diagon Alley photos I took to get you ready to experience this most amazing area.
