PHOTOS, VIDEO: New ‘Shrek’s Swamp Meet’ with Shrek, Fiona, and Donkey Opens in KidZone at Universal Studios Florida

The new Shrek meet-and-greet location has opened in Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone at Universal Studios Florida. The old location, attached to the permanently closed Classic Monsters Café, closed over a month ago. Since then, crews have been updating what was once the Barney Shop, turning it into “Shrek’s Swamp Meet.”

Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone opens at 10:00 a.m. daily, but we got a look at the completed exterior of Shrek’s Swamp Meet before it opened.

Green banners with a Shrek “S” hang on the exterior columns.

A large tree is at the center of the building, a holdover from the forest theming of the Barney Shop. The tree is now adorned with a wanted poster for Shrek.

The poster reads: “Wanted for malicious bride napping and being a big, stupid ugly ogre in my perfect world. If you have any information on the whereabouts of this ogre, report to Castle Duloc for immediate ‘questioning.’ And by questioning I mean torture! Bwah-ha-ha-ha, oh no, I wrote that. – F”

There’s a brown construction wall at the side of the building. Team Members told us that’s where the dragon is sleeping. As cool as it would be for the dragon to be added to the meet-and-greet, we think a counter to purchase photos may be added here.

The shop space has been cut in half with themed brown walls.

A large door has a crest featuring various Shrek-related imagery: Donkey, Shrek, the dragon, and an onion.

Shrek and Fiona entered and then opened a barn door to reveal Donkey.
