The Wizarding World


Diagon Alley is just as incredible as Hogsmeade.  It's definitely worth it to have the park-to-park passes to see both sides, especially because you can ride Escape From Gringott's on the Diagon Alley side.

The first thing we did when exiting King's Cross Station was to dial the Ministry of Magic from the phone booth to listen to the recorded message.  Then we visited Stan Shunpike at the Knight Bus!

After that, we entered Diagon Alley!  You can look down the street of shops to Gringott's at the end, with the dragon on top.  And every 10 minutes or so the dragon breathes fire; if you're standing close enough, you feel the heat from it.

 We ate brunch at the Leaky Cauldron, where we ran into a bit of an issue when we found out that they weren't able to accommodate my food allergies... with anything but a very large plate of grapes.

Jamie and the kids had an amazing breakfast, and I had... a lot of grapes.
We went into all of the stores, including Weasley's Wizard Wheezes, which looks straight out of the films.

More on the parks, including The Wizarding World, in future posts!
