Friendly reminder to record/watch the Today show on Wednesday and the rest of the week. The last 2 days they've been teasing with newly filmed footage saying that they'll be in Diagon Alley live starting on Wednesday.
Wow. Just wow. These pictures, the dragon breathing fire and the shot of the entirety of Diagon Alley are just awesome. I can't wait for September when I get to see it in person!ERMAHGERD!! Awesome pictures of The Leaky Cauldron, Bourgin and Burkes, and Diagon Alley! Kudos to @InsideTheMagic.
But I want to climb it so bad!Ooh... just noticed the solution to the staircase to nowhere... there appears to be some sort of sales wagon parked in front of it.
It looks like there is a tube towel or shower curtain there. If it's the latter, I want it.London Merch

I think this is what you are looking for.:thumbs:I tried looking for the information on the webcast, especially the one tomorrow but I cannot seem to locate them anymore. What time and where to find them? Any help is greatly appreciated! :rep:
What would you expect them to sell there though? The area is themed to London, it's not like you can just sell anything there and have it make thematic sense.Are people going to buy that GB, London, England stuff? I dunno, seems iffy, just like selling USA stuff in Europe would be iffy.
Isn't there a "Wand Repair Shop" facade right next to Ollivanders? It could be that when your wand RFID expires, you have to go and have it reprogrammed ("repaired") for a fee.
And now the $45 price is making more sense... as an initial price. Then you'd pay per play thereafter... (I'm assuming!)While they could change the accepted codes every so often, they might add the service of "retuning" a returning wand so that its codes would also be accepted by the system on any particular day.
That is an amazing capture! Props to @bioreconstruct!you all might be happy by this...
Yep. Fire breather...
Okay. What even. I can't believe this is happening already. Didn't they break ground on Phase I, like, a month ago?
Those pictures gave me chills. I can't even think about what tomorrow night's event will be like.
It really feels like Jaws closed just a few weeks ago and now Diagon is about to open... Time has flown by! It's stunning visually and mentally to look at Diagon standing right there, tangible, all ready for us! Thanks to everyone that is part of OU! It's awesome experiencing this with all of you!At this moment in time, just before the mass hysteria breaks loose, let's take a moment to reflect on how far we've come.
Spend the next 2 minutes to watch the creation of this new area.
Watch it in HD and full screen! (if You can)
I would like to thank everybody for a wonderful, informative AND entertaining time. :happy:
I haven't contributed with very much (living in Norway of all places), just the odd comment here and a few pics there, but it's been really great!
So thank You everybody and see You around when Uni decides to expand "The Wonderful World of Harry Potter"!
(which I'm sure they will in time)
I agree, I went on the tour earlier this year, the tour means that you see the roof of the studio, and the technical things, especially in DA (you don't see the top of the bank). This looks amazing, can't wait for December!I've been to the Potter studio tour that's just outside London, I expected big things from the expansion but I didn't think they would be able to copy the studio tours details. I was wrong. It's looks as good if not better than the studio and that just blows my mind.
