Universal Destinations & Experiences recently announced Universal Kids Resort is being built in Frisco, Texas. The park will be much smaller than its counterparts in Orlando, clocking in at 32 acres. Universal believes the scale to be more inviting for its younger guests. Kids will be able to engage with their favorite Universal characters and stories in a new, imaginative way.
“Universal Kids Resort will inspire the unbridled creativity of kids through imagination, discovery and most importantly – play,” said Molly Murphy, President, Universal Creative. “We’re designing the resort so kids and families can feel the thrill of being physically immersed in their most beloved stories and characters.”
Universal Kids Resort will be surrounded by a lush, green landscape. Inside, guests will be able to visit individually themed lands where they can interact with their favorite Universal characters as never before. The theme park will also feature multiple family-friendly attractions, including interactive shows as well as character meet and greets. Imaginative food, drink and exclusive merchandise will also be available on-site. Additionally, the resort will have a 300-room themed hotel for families to rest in after a day of play.
In addition to bringing a new, family-focused source of fun to Frisco, the park is generating thousands of new jobs in the region. This includes over 2,500 new construction jobs. Groundbreaking for the resort took place in November. Progress on the company’s first-ever theme park geared toward families with younger children has officially begun. The vertical construction of the park should begin in early 2024 and it should be finished in 2026. While completing the project, Universal plans to continue to place focus on adding value and positively serving the Frisco community.
