The best of Diagon Alley, let's explore the top 6 under appreciated features of Diagon Alley Universal Studios. The hidden gems, if you will, of Diagon Alley....this could involve diagon alley stores, diagon alley show, diagon alley secrets. We'll explore them all in this video, mainly the little things that could go unnoticed if you don't watch this video. I love top 10 universal list, or in my case top I do like to rhyme Rick. These will be some must do diagon alley things or must do universal studios things they might not be as obvious to most muggle visitors to the wizarding world of harry potter.

    Does the gringots money fetch same amount of money as you buy it for? I mean will a 10 dollar one become a 10 dollar check kind of thing.

    You missed the best part of the shrunken heads easter egg: if you cast Mimble-Wimble on the heads while theyre singing "Show me the way to go home", theyll stammer for a minute and then sing it again, but change the lyrics to "We'll show you how to go home. We're tired of you messing with our heads." Also, another cool thing, the Leaky Cauldron sign leaks. Stand under it and it will drip on you!

    Omg I didn’t know there were different patterns for kreacher but we were lucky enough to catch him peaking out! But damn I wish we’d known about the back of the knight bus. That’s probably the one thing we missed out of the things you’ve mentioned (minus the secret wand spots buuut we didn’t buy a wand so it wouldn’t have really mattered haha)

    With the gringotts money I thought they would use the gallions sickles and knuts thing but with plastic coins which would've been cool but I think the bank notes work better as well.

    My mom has found out about the money exchange while we were at universal. I was excited because I thought we were going to get actual currency that they use in the books and was disappointed to find out it wasn't true. Also In one of the woman's bathrooms you can here moaning myrtle which is weird when you are trying to use the bathroom.

    Since you're a guy, you probably don't know a funny spot I found. Right across from the common space where the owls are perched on the ceiling planks there is a bathroom. Inside the women's bathroom there is a stall that has an out of order sign on it. If you listen, you can hear Moaning Myrtle.

    I am watching to see if I missed something on my trip to Universal a few years ago. And yea. I didn't know you could get on the bus. Or about creature in the window. I need to go back now. I exchanged money at the bank and spent it inside diagon alley. Didn't know it could be used elsewhere. And I didn't know about the potion refreshments. I really need to go back now. brought the elixir back as a souvenir does it surpass the liquor requirments for carryon by TSA?

    My family is "muggles", and I am partially. When we went to Universal, if I hadn't known where the entrance was for the Diagon Alley, and it's ride -- because of CSgos videos, we would have walked right past it. Not a very good marketing/design decision.

    I have facilitated it for an adult before. They held us back after the group went through and performed a quick version for her as well. Made the entire trip. Talk to an employee while on line. I've also been selected when there was no one else in line lol

  120. Rix Flix

    Rix FlixPřed rokem

    I think it's pretty random. I think they look for kids first and I'm sure it's helpful if the kids looks at the host and looks engaged with what's happening.
