The Universal Orlando Resort has fully confirmed that the Leaky Cauldron restaurant will feature in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley, as well as revealing plans to add 8 new restaurants to its CityWalk area.
It was already more-or-less certain that the Leaky Cauldron would be the headline restaurant of Diagon Alley, alongside smaller outlets including Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlor, the Fountain of Fair Fortune (likely to serve Butterbeer) and the London Food Cart. The full confirmation can be seen in the video below:
Meanwhile, the CityWalk area is set for a radical transformation that will include a total of 8 new restaurants. Images and details of these are given below. Closing to make room for these will be Pastamore and Latin Quarter, as well as Katie's Candy Company and Cigarz.
