ORLANDO, FL (FOX19) -

Universal plans to expand its Harry Potter universe once more.

On Wednesday, Universal Orlando Resort announced a brand new section of their theme park to be called The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley.

Scheduled to open in 2014, it will expand The Wizarding World of Harry Potter across both Universal Orlando theme parks .

The new area will bring to life some of the experiences and places found in and around London in the Harry Potter books and films, offering brand-new adventures for fans and theme park guests.

Diagon Alley and ‘London' will be located within the Universal Studios Florida theme park, which is adjacent to Universal's Islands of Adventure theme park, where guests now experience Hogwarts and Hogsmeade. 

And – just like in the books and films – guests will be able to travel between ‘London' and Hogsmeade aboard the Hogwarts Express.

Work on the new area is already underway.  When complete, it will feature shops, a restaurant and an attraction based on Gringotts bank – all directly inspired by the fiction and films.

More details on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley will be released over time on this website - https://www.universalorlando.com/harrypotter/

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade opened at Universal's Islands of Adventure in June 2010.
