The first time I ever stepped foot in the Diagon Alley expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, I made my husband film my reaction. I just knew that I would someday want to relive that magical moment. So when Stephanie came to visit Florida the next year, I insisted on filming her reaction as well. Seeing Diagon Alley for the first time really is an awe inspiring experince. Unlike the Hogsmeade and Hogwarts side of the park, Diagon Alley is completely enclosed. This means that no other rides, or attractions, or sections of the park are visible anywhere you look. This makes Diagon Alley seem so much more real and magical, in my opinion.
Since Harry Potter has always been so important to both Stephanie and myself, I couldn’t think of a better way to introduce our new segment, “Fashionably Nerdy Adventures” than to share those videos with you all. Watch as Stephanie and I experience all the magic of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, Florida.
Special thanks to Universal Studios, Florida and The Library Bards (our own Bonnie and Xander) for letting us use their amazing song, “Accio.” The song is available for purchase, or better yet, grab their entire album, Bardcore.
