Post Diagon Alley expansion rumours already underway at Universal Studios Hollywood

A new rumour has come about that ideas for expanding the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood to include Diagon Alley are already underway, according to the LA Times.

While Hogsmeade won't open at USH in Los Angeles, Calif., until next spring, Universal may already be well ahead in planning the second part of its Harry Potter attraction, and might take over the land now occupying Waterworld (which is already confirmed to be demolished in the near future).

The map of Universal Studios Hollywood below shows where Hogsmeade is being built now (in the red circle) and where Diagon Alley might be built (in the blue circile where Waterworld is located).

From the LA Times:

And how about this as a suitable finale for Universalís five-year plan: A Diagon Alley expansion of Wizarding World is reportedly envisioned for the Waterworld stunt show arena location, according to a source who has seen the blueprints.
Also, a recent look at the construction of The Flight of the Hippogriff ride at Universal Studios Hollywood can be seen here (start at 4 minutes in).

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood, which will include Hogsmeade village and Hogwarts castle, will open sometime in spring 2016.
