Universal Orlando Resort and USA Today shared a first look inside DreamWorks Land, which opens next month at Universal Studios Florida.

DreamWorks Land

A person wearing a blue construction helmet and a blue safety vest stands on a construction site with green structures and trees in the background.

The video is hosted by Universal Creative Director Dean. One of the venues he shows off is Shrek’s Swamp Meet, where guests will meet Shrek, Princess Fiona, and Donkey. The meet-and-greet space resembles Shrek’s cottage. Large fake swamp reeds stick out of the ground.

A vibrant woodland scene with a small house built into a hill, surrounded by tall trees and lush greenery. Soft sunlight filters through the trees, casting shadows on the ground.

This backdrop of Shrek’s cottage appears to be inside the former DreamWorks Destination and “A Day in the Park With Barney” theater.

A line of colorful frog statues faces a larger frog statue adorned with a crown and scepter, surrounded by greenery and a rocky foreground.

There will also be a playground — Shrek’s Swamp. This row of frog figures seems to be located in the playground. A statue of a frog king, or possibly The Frog Prince, is beside them.

A construction worker in a blue safety vest and hard hat stands near a wooden structure with a figure in a hat peering out from the top. Various signs are visible, including “Ring” and “Hat Shack.”.

One of the playground’s interactive elements is Pinocchio’s Fact Shack. A Pinocchio animatronic is in a small shack elevated off the ground. Signs to the side tell guests how to interact with Pinocchio.

A wooden puppet in a yellow hat peeks out of a window in a rustic treehouse with a wooden roof and ropes. The treehouse is elevated and part of a larger wooden structure.

Guests ring a large wooden doorbell on the ground. Pinocchio will then tell them a fact.

A construction worker wearing a hard hat and blue safety vest stands beside a wooden structure, holding onto a rope and pressing a button. Multiple directional signs are visible in the background.

Given that this is Pinocchio, the accuracy of the facts varies.
