Snack Kiosk Names in DreamWorks Land Accidentally Revealed in Building Permits

Theme parks are often pretty secretive about names of venues until they are ready to share photos, news, or other exciting details, but a keen eye will sometimes find accidentally-revealed details in very mundane places. In this case, we spotted the names of two new locations coming to DreamWorks Land in their building permits.

New Details Listed In Building Permits

We found a few new details for Dreamworks Land in the building permits submitted by Universal to the City of Orlando. Though most of these are straightforward and related to the building process for the resort’s attractions, a couple of the builfdi permits have names of the new kiosks buried in the attachments for the files. Let’s take a look at four permits.

In the image above, we can see that this building permit is for a meet & greet. Though meet & greets have previously been announced, this building permit indicates new construction for that meet & greet.

This permit is for new construction related to a merchandise kiosk.

The image of a building permit above reveals the name of a new snack stand in the area: Swamp Snacks. While this is a small detail, it is not one that has been formally revealed.

In the image from a building permit above, this Ice Cream Kiosk has been given the name “Boom Box.” We think this will probably be in the Trolls section of the land, but we can’t say for sure.

We didn’t spot any other details in the building permits, but we’ll keep an eye out for anything else we can share!

The concept art focuses on the land’s sign, which includes Shrek, Donkey, Po, and trolls.

But in the back right of the rendering, we can see a Shrek and Donkey meet and greet. Shrek and Donkey have been bouncing around Universal Studios Florida since Shrek 4-D closed in 2022. Their adjacent meet and greet closed and was relocated near DreamWorks Destination within Woody Woodpecker’s Kidzone, taking over the old Barney gift shop. After KidZone permanently closed, Shrek started meeting in the Hollywood area of Universal Studios Florida.

Behind the Shrek and Donkey meet and greet, however, we can see a small roller-coaster seemingly inspired by Trolls. One of the franchise’s purple spider creatures sits atop a column, and a spider web is above the coaster track.

Last time we got a good look at construction and demolition in KidZone, Woody Woodpecker’s Nuthouse Coaster was still standing, so it seems likely this Troll coaster will be a retheme.

Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone closed permanently in January 2023. E.T. Adventure and Animal Actors on Location! remain open but Woody Woodpecker’s Nuthouse CoasterFievel’s Playland, and Curious George Goes to Town are all gone.

The walls that went up around the KidZone construction zone featured DreamWorks characters, leading to speculation that the area would become entirely DreamWorks themed. Universal confirmed this Thursday morning with the following announcement:

Next year, Universal Orlando Resort will debut an all-new themed land featuring DreamWorks Animation’s beloved animated characters. As guests step into this new land, their imaginations will run wild as they take in the vibrant colors, sights and sounds that surround them. They will share special moments with their favorite characters like Gabby from Gabby’s Dollhouse and explore themed, interactive play spaces and attractions that bring popular franchises like Shrek, Trolls and Kung Fu Panda to life in the most imaginatively fun ways.

The new DreamWorks land, coming to Universal Studios Florida, is part of a collection of new entertainment experiences debuting at Universal Orlando Resort in 2024 and is a continuation of Universal’s commitment to rich storytelling that places guests of all ages in the most incredible and immersive environments. Stay tuned – more details will be revealed in the future. 

We also noticed vertical construction in the land.
