Today Universal Orlando is taking a few “Harry Potter” film stars on a tour of the new Diagon Alley expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Weasley siblings James Phelps, Oliver Phelps and Bonnie Wright are sharing photos via Twitter and on Universal’s Instagram from within the new area, including the Knight Bus, Florean Fortescue’s Ice Cream Parlour, the Leaky Cauldron, Bourgin & Burkes, Hogwarts Express stations, and – of course, Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes.

It all began as the trio took a trip aboard the Hogwarts Express from Hogsmeade to King’s Cross.

In the new London waterfront area, they hung around the Knight Bus.

With designers Thierry Coup and Alan Gilmore, they entered through the jagged brick walls into Diagon Alley.

Inside, they dined at the Leaky Cauldron restaurant.

The Weasleys visited Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes, naturally.

Butterbeer ice cream was sampled from Florean Fortescue’s.

They took a detour into Knockturn Alley…

…and Flourish & Blotts.

Finally, they entered Gringotts Bank.

Diagon Alley does not yet have an opening date but will be previewed in a press event beginning June 17 that will include more “Harry Potter” stars.
