Shrek, Trolls, Kung Fu Panda and more are coming to Universal Orlando Resort this summer! Here’s what we know so far.

We’re still pretty excited about the recent announcement detailing everything coming to Universal Epic Universe when it opens in 2025, but we don’t need to wait a whole year to experience exciting new attractions at Universal Orlando Resort

This summer, DreamWorks Land will be opening in Universal Studios Florida, which is set to be a “vibrant new themed environment inspired by DreamWorks Animation’s beloved characters Shrek, Trolls, and Kung Fu Panda”. This family-friendly land will feature character meet and greets, a coaster, interactive play areas and live entertainment, and we can’t wait to experience it all! 

Here’s what guests can expect during their time in DreamWorks Land: 



Poppy and Branch will be the stars of the show sitting on top of a magnificent fountain at the centre of Trolls Village where guests can “find their happy place” before exploring the following attractions: 

  • Trolls Trollercoaster - This family-friendly coaster will be the star attraction of DreamWorks Land, where guests of all ages will be able to ride the iconic Caterbus along a bright orange and yellow track to escape the evil spiders! 
  • Poppy’s Playground - This shaded play area will be nestled under a giant 20-foot mushroom and feature bouncing and climbing structures surrounded by flowers and bugs 
  • Trolls Treats - Pick up a delicious ice cream treat like a pink lemonade-flavoured Poppy-licious Pink and a huckleberry-flavoured BroZone Berry served out of Poppy’s boombox!

A swamp has never looked so appealing! Join Shrek and all his friends for adventures at every turn, including: 

  • Shrek’s Swamp Meet - Guests can head to Shrek’s cottage to meet characters like Princess Fiona, Donkey, and of course Shrek himself! 
  • Shrek’s Swamp for Little Ogres - There’s no better place for little ones to cool off than this wet play area that will feature slides and fountains to climb, bounce and splash about in. 
  • Mama Luna Feline Fiesta - Puss in Boots 2: The Last Wish will come to life in this interactive experience set in Mama Luna’s retirement home for cats. Guests will use buttons, bells, maracas and levers to activate interactive screens and play about with the cats. 
  • King Harold’s Swamp Symphony - This interactive musical experience will have guests of all ages creating their own melodious masterpieces as they trigger a choir of frog ribbits by stepping on various lily pads. 
  • Swamp Snacks - This snack location will be serving up treats fit for an ogre like the Shrekzel, Far Far a Waffle and Frozen Ogre.

Kung Fu Panda 

There’ll be more fun than fighting in this area, featuring action-packed entertainment including: 

  • Po’s Kung Fu Training Camp - This play area is inspired by the Panda Village. In both wet and dry play areas, guests will be able to help the pandas wash and dry their laundry with enormous water cannons, buckets and fans, or take a ride on oversized merry-go-round noodle bowls from Mr Ping’s Noodle Shop. 
  • Po Live! - This will be a digital interactive meet and greet with Po himself as he teaches guests some Kung Fu moves while cooking some stir fry and looking after his cousin Ling Ling.

And if all that wasn’t enough, there will be additional experiences for you to enjoy like the DreamWorks Animation Celebration, a dance party featuring hit pop songs and high-energy dancing, and the DreamWorks Character Zone, where your little ones will love meeting some of their favourite characters from Gabby’s Dollhouse and other DreamWorks classics! 

This new land will join an already fantastic lineup of attractions that your kids will love, including Illumination’s Villan-Con Minion Blast which opened in Minion Land in 2023. And of course, there’s plenty at Universal Studios Florida for thrill-seekers too, like Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit and Revenge of the Mummy.
