Updated: Gringotts dragon being installed in Diagon Alley at WWoHP

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a… DRAGON?! That’s right, the Gringotts dragon has now been installed into the Diagon Alley expansion of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando! Thanks to Twitter user @AmusementBuzz, pictures have surfaced of the dragon as it was being put into place. Exciting times!

@AmusementBuzz first tweeted, asking if there had actually been a report about someone seeing the dragon?

A couple of hours later, more pictures were being posted:

Take a look at the pictures @AmusementBuzz, along with @hatetofly and @MichaelCarelli, posted below:


At the beginning of the week, @AmusementBuzz also posted a picture of Kreacher in 12 Grimmauld Place:

Now, there’s also a video that has been uploaded to YouTube by user MagicCityMayhem of Kreacher creeping in the window.

Creepy but awesome, huh?


Update: Attractions Magazine‘s Youtube page has uploaded a video of the dragon being installed into the park. Check out the video below:

    The dragon looks fabulous and Kreacher looks great, but creepy, and I’d love to visit the Park one day x

    It looks awesome! They have done a great job, I can’t wait to see it in person.

    I agree, all of the extension looks amazing and I’m sure it’s going to be incredible when it’s finally opened! I’m hoping that once I have enough Galleons saved, I’ll be able to make it there one day.

  • Aimee Krenz

    Having a bit of a freak out moment! We’re going to get to see ALL of this while we are in town for Leaky Con!

    I literally yelled out OMG when I saw the article’s title and photo. Both the dragon and Kreacher look fabulous, and that was a genius idea to put the dragon up there. I can’t wait to see videos/pictures of it breathing fire!

  • AmusementBuzz

    The dragon is incredible to see in person! 🙂 And very very large!

    • Toni Cooper

      I bet! I can only imagine what it must have been like to witness this, must have been so exciting. Thanks again for your Twitter updates.

    I kinda hate the dragon tbh, considering te battle of Hogwarts took place in 1998 the dragon has already escaped and bellatrix and voldemort are already dead. The expansion looks amazing though and I honestly cannot wait but I don’t like how they’re trying to immurse the guests into the movies instead of the fantastic world itself instead.
