The Wizarding World of Harry Potter



In the know. In the Times.

Are you living with a muggle family this summer?  Have they restricted you to living in a cupboard under the stairs?  Is your owl locked up in a cage, unable to deliver rescue messages to your friends?  If any of this makes sense to you, then the new attraction opening this weekend at Universal Studios in Orlando is right up your alley.  Diagon Alley, that is.  Sean Daly gives his review of the new Harry Potter addition in the Weekender section of this week's Times. You can access the article by going to the electronic edition of Thursday's newspaper, or you can read it online at  An interactive report is also available online at for you to view.  If you could go to Wizarding World this weekend, what would you do first?  Buy your wand at Ollivander’s, take a tour of the Hogwarts castle, or eat a chocolate frog at Honeydukes?
