Universal Orlando never disappoints when it comes to great entertainment, Hollywood-inspired rides, good food, and much more. The beloved theme park and resort in the United States has numerous fun activities catering to various age groups. If you're someone who is looking forward to a trip to Universal Orlando, schedule it during the summer, as the park will be opening a new attraction at that time.

Last year, the theme park announced sad news, unveiling that Woody Woodpecker's Kidzone, which has operated for over 20 years, will be closing soon and will be replaced with a new land instead. This announcement was made in July 2023, and at that time, more details about the new attraction weren't disclosed. See the post below. 

A few days ago, Universal Studios Florida revealed new information about the newest attraction, DreamWorks Land. It will consist of numerous play areas, fun and entertainment for families, new rides, character interactions, and much more.
