Take a Tour Through Diagon Alley

What’s the next best thing to being at Diagon Alley? Watching YouTube videos of others who take a Diagon Alley tour, of course! Take virtual visit and tour Diagon Alley with Allison and Hunter from Jones Family Travels with the video below.

This tour of Diagon Alley hits all the highlights! It starts with a Butterbeer — of course! Some browsing in the Magical Menagerie starts off the day with owls and humongous pygmy puffs! More shopping at Madam  Malkin’s Robes for all Occasions is the next stop on the Diagon Alley tour before heading into Ollivanders for a wand experience. Hunter got to participate once again and had a wand choose her as is customary.

They spend a few minutes watching the live puppetry show with the Tales of Beedle the Bard before continuing their Diagon Alley tour at Gringotts Money Exchange. Hunter asked the goblin there a question and he answered her in great detail!

The Knight Bus driver and the Shrunken Head had a nice conversation with Hunter that was lots of fun! They are always a good time.

The Diagon Alley tour ended there, but the day at Universal wasn’t over until a little more time was spent shopping and checking out the new Secret Life of Pets parade float and characters!

Did you enjoy the tour? What else would you have done if you were there with Allison and Hunter?
