Muggles waited in line yesterday for up to seven hours to ride the new Harry Potter ride on opening day at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter-Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando Resort.
So what did folks do while waiting? They posted photos to social media, of course. Take a look at some images from yesterday’s opening.
It was so crowded, many fans, like Christina from Chicago, were told they had to come back later:

Good news! Kasey made it through the line. Here she is, alive and well at Gringott’s Bank.
Lots of images of the famous fire-breathing dragon. As Vanessa Sheridan put it, “The most talked about part of #DiagonAlley!!”
