It has been almost one month, but it doesn't matter. This Diagon Alley is located in Orlando Universal Studios, Florida, USA. I wish I coudl visit this place too! This place is.. MAGICAL!

4 Reasons why you have to visit the Diagon Alley in Florida.

1) Board the Hogwarts Express!
If you have a Park-to-Park admission ticket, you can pass through Platform 9 ¾™ and board the Hogwarts Express from King's Cross Station in London, located
inside Universal Studios Florida theme park, and travel to Hogsmeade Station, located inside Universal's Islands of Adventure theme park. Or you can ride the train in the other direction!

In the train:
Oliver (old lady voice):Anything from the trolley, dears?
James: Oh shut up. Get to the train.
Oliver: Okay

2)Eat as much as you can!

4) What about Gringotts?
Enter Gringotts bank beneath the massive fire-breathing dragon at the far end of Diagon Alley. Inside Gringotts you'll walk through the bank's grand marble lobby and see goblins hard at work. Then, get ready to take a journey through cavernous passageways that lead deep underground as you climb aboard Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts.

This new, multi-dimensional 3D thrill ride puts you right in the middle of the action as you face the bank's stringent security measures while navigating the perilous underground vaults. You'll encounter Harry, Ron, and Hermione along the way, but you'll have to evade the wrath of malicious villains Voldemort and Bellatrix as well as trolls and other creatures who stand between you and a safe return to Diagon Alley.
It's a pity, this is not close to me....
