What is Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone?
Although Universal Orlando Resort is better known for bringing the thrills, Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone is home to entertainment and attractions that attract a younger demographic. Kids of all ages will enjoy the timeless oddity that is E.T. Adventure and be mesmerized by the talents of four-legged and winged performers at Animal Actors on Location! Guests can also pick up goods straight from Bikini Bottom at SpongeBob StorePants and shop to sport their love for one of the most famous extra-terrestrials at E.T’s Toy Closet.

Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone – attractions
The personal pet project of Steven Spielberg himself, E.T. Adventure is a bizarre excursion with everyone’s favorite extra-terrestrial. Give your name to the team member at the entrance and walk through the forest, board your bicycle to evade capture, take to the skies to rescue E.T., and meet all the unusual pals on his home planet. Listen carefully as E.T. gives you a personalized “goodbye” at the end of the ride.
Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone – entertainment
If you’ve ever wondered how directors get such excellent performances out of their animal movie stars (well, before CGI became omnipresent), you won’t want to miss Animal Actors on Location!, where a variety of furry friends and their trainers will take you behind the scenes to show off some tricks and training techniques in a mix of skits, demonstrations, audience participation, and film clips.
Meet SpongeBob SquarePants
Inside SpongeBob StorePants, SpongeBob has his very own dedicated meet-and-greet spot, and, if you’re lucky, you may encounter fellow citizens of Bikini Bottom, such as Squidward or Patrick the Starfish.
E.T. photo spot
Located inside E.T.’s Toy Closet as you exit E.T. Adventure, a mini-photo studio has two photo-ops that you can take with the little alien. In the first, you sit on the famous flying bike, and green-screen effects make it look as if you are truly soaring; for the second picture, join E.T. in the toy closet. These photos are included with a My Universal photo package, or they can be purchased at the shop.

E.T.’s Toy Closet
All guests exiting E.T. Adventure will walk through this small shop, where you can get E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial-themed gifts and souvenirs. The Toy Closet is also the place to have your picture taken with E.T. himself, in two green-screen photo ops.
