The boy who lived is still a worldwide phenomenon years after the last book was published and the last film hit theaters. Universal Orlando has a lot to do with this, as their Wizarding World of Harry Potter has changed the theme park world in ways no one dared to think were possible.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter takes guests inside Hogwarts castle, lets them face dragons, sip butterbeer, and even have their wand choose them. The area is so popular with guests that in 2014 Universal Studios Orlando will be the home to Diagon Alley, an all new area of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
