Slide 1 of 15
Welcome to Hogsmeade!
It may not be Sept. 1, but it’s officially time to pack your bags for the Hogwarts Express: The new Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood opens Thursday, and the immersive magical land puts guests right in the world of Harry and his friends. EW went on a tour of the attraction with Alan Gilmore, the supervising art director for the Harry Potter films as well as the park, and uncovered some of the Wizarding World’s finer Hogwartsian details. We’ve got 15 of those hidden gems right here (and you can check out our exclusive first look photos of the whole park here).
