You can see from the map that this is a big hunk of land. The new footprint will nearly double Universal's total available acreage! Universal says guests will be able to take Universal Orlando transportation between Universal's Epic Universe and its existing properties.

“Our new park represents the single-largest investment Comcast NBCUniversal has made in its theme park business and in Florida overall,” said Brian L. Roberts, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Comcast Corporation.  “It reflects the tremendous excitement we have for the future of our theme park business and for our entire company’s future in Florida.”

Universal Orlando Resort is currently home to three parks — Universal Studios Florida, Universal's Islands of Adventure and Universal's Volcano Bay water theme park. It's also home to entertainment, shopping and dinning destination Universal CityWalk as well as seven resort hotels. It's newest, Universal's Endless Summer Resort - Surfside Inn and Suites is about midway between the main Universal Orlando Resort property and Universal's Epic Universe.
