Inside This Post Inside This Post

A new themed land inspired by DreamWorks Animation is coming to the former Woody Woodpecker's KidZone children's area at Universal Studios Florida in summer 2024. The new DreamWorks land will have interactive and immersive experiences for the whole family. Expect to see beloved characters from a variety of films and TV shows, including "Shrek," "Trolls," "Kung Fu Panda" and "Gabby's Dollhouse."

DreamWorks Land - Entrance Concept Art

Universal Orlando Resort first announced DreamWorks Land last summer! This land will be located next to the remaining KidZone attractions, including E.T. Adventure and Animal Actors, and the gift shop, SpongeBob StorePants. Here's what we know so far!

Shrek in DreamWorks Land

There are many layers to peel back in the Shrek section of DreamWorks Land.

DreamWorks Land - Shrek's Swamp

Shrek's Swamp Meet

Shrek, Princess Fiona and Donkey welcome you to Shrek's moss-covered swampy cottage home.

Shrek's Swamp for Little Orges

This play area features four slides, wet play areas and a playground where little orges can slide and splash around, including Shrek's outhouse.

Mama Luna Feline Fiesta

Straight from "Puss in Boots 2: The Last Wish," step inside Mama Luna's retirement home for cats. You can play with Mama Luna's many cats on interactive screens activated by bells, buttons, maracas and levers — and you just might spot Puss in Boots himself!

King Harold's Swamp Symphony

OK, OK ... this just might be our most anticipated spot! Create your own melody with a choir of frog ribbits by stepping on lily pads.

Swamp Snacks

Feast like an orge at Swamp Snacks, which includes menu items such as Shrekzel, Far Far A Waffle, Frozen Ogre and more (onions not yet guaranteed).


Find your happy place in Trolls Village, which features a flowing "fantastamazing" fountain right at the center.

DreamWorks Land - Trollercoaster

Trolls Trollercoaster

Join Poppy, Viva, Tiny and the twins, Satin and Chenille, and hop aboard the Caterbus! Escape spooky spiders on this family-friendly roller coaster.

Poppy's Playground

Covered by a 20-foot mushroom, this shaded play area features colorful flowers and bugs with plenty of bouncing and climbing structures for little ones.

Trolls Treats

Poppy's boombox from "Trolls Band Together" is serving up Trolls ice cream treats, such as the pink lemonade-flavored Poppy-licious Pink and the huckleberry-flavored BroZone Berry.

Kung Fu Panda in DreamWorks Land

DreamWorks Land - Kung Fu Panda

Po Live!

Meet and talk with a digital Po, who trains you in the art of kung fu fighting — all while babysitting his baby cousin, Ling Ling, and cooking up some stir fry.

Po's Kung Fu Training Camp

Inspired by the "Kung Fu Panda" films, Po's ancestral home, Panda Village, comes to life! With both dry and wet play areas, kung fu masters in training can help the pandas wash and dry their laundry with water cannons, dump buckets, giant fans and more. You can also interactive with a giant gong, baby pandas and merry-go-round noodle bowls from Mr. Ping's Noodle Shop.

Additional Experiences in DreamWorks Land

DreamWorks Imagination Celebration

This high-energy show combines hit songs, dancing and technology to create a fun party atmosphere at the DreamWorks Theater.

DreamWorks Character Zone

Guests can meet their favorite DreamWorks characters, including Gabby from "Gabby's Dollhouse" and more.

That's all we know so far about this new land, but we can't wait to hear more as Universal releases additional details — so stay tuned!

Hi Braden!

Thanks for hopping by. Nothing has been officially confirmed yet for what will be in DreamWorks Land, but E.T. is not part of the current construction taking place and is still operating as normal.

Hoppy planning!
