I was invited as media to cover the event. No additional compensation was received. All opinions are my own.
Earlier this week I was invited to Universal CityWalk to learn of the upcoming expansion to Universal theme parks. In place of where Jaws used to reside, Universal Studios Florida is building a London scene with DIAGON ALLEY behind it.
That’s right this new development is located in Universal Studios, while the existing Wizarding World of Harry Potter will remain at Islands of Adventure. Check out this video below of the Universal Studios President discussing what’s to be expected of the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter DIAGON ALLEY attraction, and the Hogwarts Express train!
I think it is sad that Jaws is going away… it makes me feel nostalgic and OLD at the same time. :}
However, I think Diagon Alley sounds really cool. Too bad it won’t be done when we visit in February.
My kids are begging to go to Florida just for Harry Potter World!

As much fun as this looks, I’m going to miss Jaws. . .it’s a classic!
