We are still a few weeks away from the June debut of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Diagon Alley expansion at Universal Orlando. But yesterday the crowning jewel of the new attraction was installed, in the form of an enormous fire-breathing dragon which will perch above the area’s signature Gringotts ride. Several local fans, including Amusement Buzz and our friend Hate To Fly, were on hand to capture the Diagon Alley dragon being lowered into his new home.

The website Pixels At The Parks chartered a helicopter flight over the resort and captured some amazing arial shots of the dragon and the rest of Diagon Alley. To check out more of these bird’s-eye photos, head over to this website for a gallery with many more:
