According to data from Skyscanner.

Universal Orlando Resort opened its second Harry Potter-themed area this summer, called The Wizarding World of Harry Potter-Diagon Alley. On opening day, folks waited up to seven hours to experience it. The zone’s centerpiece is a ride called Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts, which takes visitors into Gringotts bank to help retrieve a magical object. The original Potter attraction is at Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park, while the new one is at the adjoining Universal Studios Florida park. Guests must buy a two-park ticket to visit both Potter areas, but they can travel between them on the Hogwarts Express train, which will offer views of characters and magical creatures from the book. Among them: Hagrid on a flying motorbike, the Weasley twins on brooms, and the Knight Bus in London traffic.Watch the video.
