As Harry Potter works more wizardry with the opening of Diagon Alley, the only guide devoted exclusively to the home of Orlando's hottest attraction keeps pace with the magic. This edition updates details of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter--Hogsmeade at Islands of Adventure and provides an in-depth review of the new Diagon Alley attractions at Universal Studios Florida--including the first-ever park to park transportation system, the Hogsmeade Express. The author's signature wit guides readers through the specifics of an effective visit. He covers every ride and attraction (including the new Beetlejuice Show); major changes in CityWalk entertainment district, and the all-new moderately priced Cabana Bay Beach Resort. PLUS: All the ins and outs of Universal's front-of-the-line policies and special things to do with that special someone. "Damn near indispensible if you're planning on visiting the Wizarding World." - Jim Hill, JimHillMedia.com.
