Diagonalley, part 1

Last post was the Simpsons stuff at Universal – but we were really there to spend the afternoon at Diagonalley! Here is part 1 of my photos. And here’s a list of some of the Easter Eggs, or things to look for while you are there! https://www.buzzfeed.com/ariellecalderon/hidden-gems-in-diagon-alley?utm_term=.bekOWOz3p#.ig64O461r

Lunch at the Leaky Cauldron. I know it’s just amusement park food, but the fish and chips we split was really good. It was hot, and didn’t taste like it had been sitting under a heat lamp. It was really tasty! Also their organization with seating people was very smooth. Two thumbs up!
