Last weeks Diagon Alley grand opening celebration has long past, but I can’t help laughing with childlike giddiness as I replay that wonderful day over and over in my mind. With so many articles out there giving you all a “how to guide” or “top tips” (myself included), I’ve decided to do something new to showcase my indescribable trip through the brick walls of London.

This is my adventure of Universal’s Diagon Alley grand opening from A-Z!
