New Aerial Photos of the Wizarding Dragon + Diagon Alley

As we creep closer and closer to the grand opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley, we've all been waiting for the dragon to be placed atop the Gringotts Bank, and a few days ago it was.

The dragon looks pretty incredible, and when complete it will be capable of a lot of movement and the all-important fire breathing.  For several shots that were taken of the dragon, check out this story from Orlando Attractions Magazine.

As for the rest of the new Diagon Alley area, the final details are being put into place with an opening expected in a less than a month now.  The building are all receiving their final paint, and from photos released earlier the area's big Gringotts ride appears ready for guests.

To catch the dragon before he was hidden behind behind work scrims, Pixels at the Parks took to the skies to get a new photo update.  The results can be seen here, and also even more content from the trip can be found in the Universal Orlando tag on the site.
