In my last Globus Mundi update we talked about what this mysterious store may offer when it is complete at Diagon Alley inside of Universal Studios Florida. The sign for the fictional travel agency had been hanging in the themed land since it first opened, but only now is a store being constructed. And speaking of the sign, it has now been removed from its original location. Only the frame where it was hanging from above Sugarplum’s Sweet Shop remains.
Work is going on behind the construction walls to create a real picture window on the former fireworks facade. The new store is being built inside of the third Ollivander’s wand room, (which was rarely used in recent years). It will have a new storefront facing the Carkitt Market stage. Merchandise featuring the Globus Mundi branding is not currently available at the Studio Store, but you can see what items were for sale in our last update. Check out the full photo report below for more details, and stay tuned for more continuing coverage of this and other theme park projects!

Walls end after door to Fireworks facade (currently)
It’s possible the work walls will extend later to cover entire fireworks facade

On the opposite side of the building, heading into Ollivanders
One of three wand rooms, just like this one, has already been completely gutted to be used as the new store, with a new entrance facing Carkitt Market
You exit the wand rooms out of one of the two doors seen here (door on far left goes to Ollivanders entry pen)
On the other side is door to the now closed wand room, as well as emergency exit/VIP entrance through House Elf facade
