The New York themed area of Universal Studios Florida is expanding. In the past, the themed facade of this section of the park stopped abruptly right next to the entrance of Twister. Since the closure of that attraction, work begun to bring the brand-new Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon attraction to life.
As part of this completely new addition, a new facade will soon completely hide the soundstage behind it. But there's even more to see around this great park.

Welcome to the second part of our new Universal Studios Florida photo-report. Be sure to also check out PART 1 of this update if you haven't already done so.
In the previous part, we checked out Production Central and the New York City area (which includes the future site of Race Through New York Staring Jimmy Fallon). Let us now continue our tour of the park to see what's new in the San Francisco and World Expo areas of the park. We hope you'll enjoy the pictures.

On Sunday night/Monday morning (September 25-26), beginning at 2 a.m., the right lane of Floridian Way/World Drive past the Speedway gas station and the AAA CarCare center will be temporarily closed to all vehicles for repaving.
Traffic may be restricted to one lane for parts of the work, and signage will be in place during the duration of this project. The work is expected to be completed by 8 a.m. Monday morning. Please, use caution when driving through this area.

As we reported a few weeks ago on our Twitter page, the Muppets will arrive at Magic Kingdom Park on October 2 for the opening of their new, live show “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History," featuring an original song and plenty of wacky Muppets humor. Throughout the day, the Muppets will recount the tale of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, while at other times, you may catch the Muppets’ version of the midnight ride of Paul Revere.

Just five weeks after offering a sneak peek of its all-new vacation oasis currently under construction, LEGOLAND Florida announced that bookings are now open for its second on-site hotel, the eagerly anticipated LEGOLAND Beach Retreat.
Reservations are available for stays beginning June 1, 2017 through September 4, 2017. LEGOLAND Beach Retreat combines the fun of surf and sand with the creativity of LEGO building sets, and will offer picturesque lake views.

The International Food & Wine Festival has returned to Epcot, bringing plenty of delectable offerings from around the world that Guests can enjoy in the park.
As part of this photo-report, we will show you around World Showcase to check out all the temporary kiosks that have been installed for the festival as well as all of the latest happenings (including attraction closures and any other interesting change) around the park. As always, we hope you will enjoy the pictures.
