From the bustling activity along Diagon Alley to the souvenirs that fill each of the equally themed shops, the detail of it all makes this world a blast to explore (and this is coming from a decidedly casual Harry Potter fan). We tried Butterbeer, enjoyed the ride in Gringotts Bank, and bought a wand at Olivanders to animate the interactive displays found around Diagon Alley.
As the crowds thinned out in the evening we had a lot more space to appreciate the thought that went into each of the locations. A growl from above was our cue to turn around and catch the dragon perched on Gringotts spew fire over our heads. And this was just the beginning.
