Universal Orlando Resort has officially named this new area DreamWorks Land and shared exciting details about what guests can look forward to with its grand opening this summer. 

DreamWorks Land in Universal Studios Florida plans to deliver a world of adventure, laughter, and magic with a host of new attractions, live entertainment, and unique experiences, all inspired by beloved DreamWorks characters and tales.

Step into Po’s Kung Fu Training Camp, an immersive play zone inspired by the Kung Fu Panda films. Here, the Panda Village comes alive with interactive features such as water cannons, dump buckets, giant fans, gongs, and merry-go-round noodle bowls.

Guests and their tiny trolls will be invited to frolic beneath a towering 20-foot mushroom in Poppy’s Playground, accompanied by climbing and bouncing structures adorned with bright flowers and playful bugs. 

Cool off in Shrek’s Swamp for Little Ogres, a play area designed with the smallest ogres in mind. This area boasts four thrilling slides, a splash-filled wet play zone, and a playful playground paired with Shrek’s iconic outhouse. 

Mama Luna Feline Fiesta plans to transport guests into the thrilling world of Puss in Boots 2: The Last Wish. Guests can play with Mama Luna’s cats through the power of interactive screens activated by buttons, bells, maracas, and levers. Keep an eye out as everyone’s favorite swashbuckling feline may make an appearance or two. 

Create music at King Harold’s Swamp Symphony, where the lily pads are not merely decorations but the keys to the melody. As you step, touch, and interact, the enchanted lily pads awaken the frog choir, each pad bringing a unique note to life.

The multisensory experience at DreamWorks Imagination Celebration combines hit pop songs, high-energy dancing, and advanced technology to create the ultimate party within the all-new DreamWorks Theater.

The excitement continues with a feast that even an ogre would envy at Swamp Snacks! Sink your teeth into a Shrekzel, Far Far A Waffle, Frozen Ogre, and more.
