I finally visited Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida. I had high hopes, and they still completely blew me away. Some places give you a hint at what a place might feel like, but as I walked through the crack in the wall, I felt like I had walked directly into the books.
I really wanted to see Diagon Alley at night. It really does become even more magical as the sun goes down. At dusk, everyone started grouping in the street with their cell phones and cameras ready to take photos of the dragon’s fire. People were intent, patient, and so focused. You would think it was real magic. To me, this photo is so much more interesting than the actual photo of the dragon’s fire.
