Universal Studios Orlando confirmed on Tuesday that as of January 16, 2023, Fievel’s Playground, Woody Woodpecker’s Nuthouse Coaster, Curious George Goes to Town, DreamWorks Destination, and the Shrek and Donkey Meet and Greet will cease operations.

The statement released by the resort says they will “soon begin work on bringing exciting new family entertainment to Universal Studios Florida that will immerse guests in the adventures of beloved animated characters.” We’ll have to wait and see what they have in store for the area, but changes are coming.

The opening day attraction E.T. Adventure as well as Animal Actors on Location! will remain open along with the SpongeBob StorePants, the KidZone Pizza Company, and the SpongeBob and friends meet and greet.
