Universal Announces Diagon Alley Entertainment and Interactive Experiences
This just in! Universal Orlando Blog has released details regarding entertainment and interactive experiences within The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley.
The first show revealed is The Tales of Beedle the Bard. This unique puppet show will be performed by a troupe of four from the Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts. During this show you can expect to see an entertaining trunk show that will use scenic pieces, props and puppetry fabricated by Emmy-award-winning designer Michael Curry.
The second show revealed is The Singing Sorceress: Celestina Warbeck and the Banshees. This show will feature never before heard songs including “A Cauldron Full Of Hot, Strong Love,” “You Stole My Cauldron But You Can’t Have My Heart” and “You Charmed The Heart Right Out Of Me” – all titles created by J.K. Rowling. The lyrics also contain never-before-revealed information about Celestina’s wand – written by J.K. Rowling for Pottermore.
And that’s not all!!! The interactive experiences will be like no other.
Be sure and take note when you happen upon the Knight Bus. Here you will find a shrunken head and the Knight Bus Conductor, who both love to meet and greet with Universal Orlando guests as they begin their journey into Diagon Alley.
You will also want to be sure and stop by Gringotts Money Exchange before you start shopping. Here you’ll be able to exchange your Muggle currency for Wizarding Bank Notes, which can be used within both Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade (as well as the rest of our two theme parks) to purchase snacks and items from the shop. Did I mention there will be a Gringotts goblin who will be overseeing your transaction!
As you can see, there will be lots to experience and see when you visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley. What are you most excited about.
