Just a few days ago, new temporary walls went up around a small section of Universal Studios Florida. We are referring to the Garden of Allah Villas, which is located between Central Park, the Kid Zone, and Hollywood (right next to the rarely-used Cafe La Bamba). Two separate buildings and a quaint garden with flowers and palm trees are included in this area, and partial demolition is expected to start in the next few days to prepare the area for a new attraction.
This aerial view of the park (courtesy of Google Maps) should help you visualize the area more easily:
What will go into this area is still a mystery. Early rumors pointed to the possibility of having a small museum dedicated to Universal movies, while other information pointed to a theme park-centric exhibit that would have opened as part of Universal Orlando's 25th anniversary celebrations.
Things seem to have changed now, as reliable sources have dismissed those rumors (or, at least, partially disagreed on the veracity of those rumors). A more recent hearsay also pointed out to the possibility of having a new entrance for the E.T. Adventure built in that same area (please, note that we are not the originators of any of these rumors).
