Join us on episode 92 as we join Harry Potter on a Forbidden Journey.


We begin the show, in the usual fashion, by bringing you the News Update which includes news about Mardi Gras,the new Universal Orlando blog and Diagon Alley.

We then begin the main topic of the show.

The Wizarding world of Harry Potter Hogsmeade opened in Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure on June 18th 2010 and with it brought, arguably, the greatest theme park attraction ever created : Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.

To whet your appetite for the soon to open Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida, we take you on a guided tour of the centrepiece of this groundbreaking land.

We begin by taking a virtual walkthrough of the queue meeting Harry, Ron and Hermione along the way, as well as Salazar Slytherin, Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff and Rowena Ravenclaw and a few other Wizarding World characters.
