PotterWatch: Diagon Alley’s London Waterfront Walls Are Down

Share This!

As Laurel Stewart shared in a newsflash a short time ago, the construction walls around The Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Diagon Alley came down late last night, unveiling the new London facades without walls for the first time to this morning’s guests (including myself). Without further ado, we present a long-awaited PotterWatch milestone, without our first full look at the expansion with the London Waterfront walls removed.

Across in Islands of Adventure, the ticketing station for the Hogwarts Express’ Hogsmeade Station was also revealed, with costumed Team Members inside seen practicing scanning tickets.

Be aware that the construction walls being removed is not a guarantee of soft opening (technical rehearsals), and there is still no announced opening date beyond “summer.” In the meantime, follow our #Potterwatch on Twitter!.
