ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A new park, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter-Diagon Alley, is expected to open to the public at Universal Orlando Resort on July 8. It's the theme park's second attraction inspired by the Harry Potter series of books and movies. The first one opened in 2010 and has been wildly popular with visitors.

Like the first Harry Potter park, the new area is richly detailed, bringing to life characters and settings from the series. Here's a look from a media preview held Tuesday and Wednesday at what it's like to visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter-Diagon Alley.
