Wizarding World of Harry Potter's Diagon Alley scheduled to open in summer 2014




Park expansion to include Gringott's Bank ride as well as Leaky Cauldron restaurant

Universal Orlando has a post up on its travel-agents page indicating that Diagon Alley at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter will be open by summer 2014.

At the end of October, Themeparkinsider.com reported that NBC Universal CEO Steve Burke said in a conference call on Oct. 30 that the much-anticipated expansion would be open in spring.

Promo materials for the park say visitors can expect a Gringott's Bank ride, and other blogs are now reporting that Universal has confirmed that Diagon Alley will include a Leaky Cauldron restaurant.
