Universal Orlando Resort recently closed the long-running Barney show that occupied the theater in the KidZone area of Universal Studios Florida. Now, Universal has just announced a replacement for that show and it will feature fan-favorite characters from DreamWorks!
Here is everything you need to know about this exciting new experience coming to Universal Studios Florida.
While you can already find some iconic DreamWorks characters inside Universal theme parks, DreamWorks Destination will be a brand new interactive experience sure to delight the whole family!
Here is what Universal had to say about this new offering coming to Universal Studios Florida this spring:
Located in the KidZone area of Universal Studios Florida, DreamWorks Destination will be a first-of-its-kind character experience where guests can interact with multiple beloved characters from DreamWorks Animation’s hit film franchises, Trolls, Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda and more – all in one festive location. Catchy tunes from various DreamWorks movies will fill the air as guests enter a bright, colorful party atmosphere – all set against a nighttime sky inspired by the animation studio’s iconic opening sequence from its films. As bright lights illuminate the scene, guests will connect with their favorite DreamWorks characters, grab some fun photos and even join them for an epic dance party that will get every member of the family to move it, move it.
When will DreamWorks Destination open? We cannot say for sure as Universal did not give fans a specific date, only that it will be opening “this spring”, however, it is already late May and spring is almost over so the show could open any time now!
Universal also took to its official Twitter to share signage for DreamWorks Destination that has already gone up inside of the park:
Something *NEW* is in park today! Can you spot what it is?
DreamWorks Destination is a one-of-a-kind interactive meet and greet. Get ready to dance and strike a pose.

Can’t wait for DreamWorks Destination to open? If you love the characters from DreamWorks films such as Shrek, Madagascar, and Trolls, there is no need to wait for DreamWorks Destination to open as you can see these characters around the theme park already.
DreamWorks Destination is not replacing the other DreamWorks offerings inside Universal Studios Florida such as Shrek 4-D, rather it is adding more interactivity between Guests and the beloved characters from DreamWorks films!
DreamWorks Destination is a welcome addition to KidZone that is starting to feel a little dated with the current intellectual properties used there such as An American Tale and Curious George.
There have also been rumors that the popular How to Train Your Dragon films will be the inspiration for an entire land inside Universal’s newest theme park Epic Universe. Universal has yet to confirm this, so we will have to wait and see as construction for Epic Universe continues and more details are revealed.
Are you excited for DreamWorks Destination to open later this spring? Let us know in the comments!
