Harry Potter fans got a special surprise Tuesday as the Diagon Alley exhibit is scheduled to open at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.

J.K. Rowling said she wrote a short story that fills in some of the blanks left in the final book.

She published the tale on her website, Pottermore, but only a few fans got to read it.

The overwhelming amount of traffic crashed the website.
