We have TWO UUOP podcasts for you today. Both feature the brand new Wizarding World of Harry Potter Diagon Alley. Lots of magical goodness for you to enjoy this holiday weekend!

On this episode we begin with the news and the first part of which is a conversation between Lee and Katy Rogers, one of the winners of the Today Show Sweep. As part of her winnings, Katy was one of the first members of the public to enter the new Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley and Lee talks to her about the land, the rides and her thoughts on all of them, relatively spoiler-free.

We then talk a little about The Wizarding World of Harry Potter that is opening at Universal Studios Japan on the 15th of July.

Following that, Darren brings us a more in depth review of Vivo, the new Italian restaurant that opened at Universal Orlando’s CityWalk recently, he also talks about the new Chocolate/Bacon bar available in Springfield and the WiFi at the parks and the integration of that and the new App.

Darren also got to be part of the audience for the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last Wednesday, so he talks to us about his experience there too.

After a quick break, we join Gregory “On Location” at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach resort with theme park Blogger Seth Kubersky to talk about his work, his life and his theme park likes and dislikes.

Pull up a sun lounger and join us for another jam-packed show.
