Historic Universal Orlando CityWalk Expansion Announcement


  I have to admit I have been a fan of Universal Studio’s for many years now (we all know there is more to do in Florida, that does not involve Pixie dust…) my family and I have loved visiting this great park. It is filled with amazing rides and nonstop fun. We have not had the chance to check out the newest edition the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, this looks amazing! And I simply must try the Butter Beer!




Universal Orlando announced Thursday that it will o pen eight new venues across CityWalk throughout 2014 as part of a bold growth strategy designed to complement the entertainment complex's already popular collection of national brands. The expansion comes after a nationwide search for culinary concepts that include a mix of established national brands, up-and-coming concepts and Universal's own creations. 

The new venues will share an overall theme that includes inviting common areas, al fresco dining, open kitchens and more. "We want Universal CityWalk to grow along with the rest of our destination," said Ric Florell, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Resort Revenue Operations at Universal Orlando. "We are bringing our guests an amazing new collection of experiences that will be world-class and offer something for everyone." The new venues include Hot Dog Hall of Fame, featuring iconic hot dog creations from some of our nation’s most famous ball parks. 

Universal partnered with Steven Schussler, the global culinary concept creator behind popular restaurants like Rain Forest Cafe, Backfire Barbecue and more, to bring his Hot Dog Hall of Fame concept to CityWalk. They also include CowFish, an innovative and trend-setting concept out of Charlotte, North Carolina with a signature dish called "Burgushi;" and popular frozen treat spots Cold Stone Creamery and Menchie’s. Original concepts include Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food, a unique tapas-style restaurant, Bread Box,a home-style sandwich shop; A new modern Italian kitchen concept, where guests can watch as the culinary team handcrafts their pasta from scratch; and Red Oven Pizza Bakery– Universal’s first-ever Neopolitan-style pizza bakery, which is now open!

So what do you think of Universals new City Walk?
