For the next few weeks we’ll be taking a break from roller coaster specials and featuring the old 1990s Disney planning videos. So we hope you enjoy a nice nostalgia romp. Or, conversely, you’ve been warned.
CONFIRMED: .@UniversalORL submitted plans for 8.8 acre Super Mario Land, called Prj 487, at USF in KidZone/Barney/Animal Actors area behind Simpsons land. Will have Donkey Kong and Mario Kart areas. Construction likely to start early 2018. pic.twitter.com/jWGhjEkSBm— Chip S. (@chickenlilchip) November 21, 2017
Plans show that the ET ride building will be spared in the construction of Super Mario Land at .@UniversalORL in KidZone area.— Chip S. (@chickenlilchip) November 21, 2017
The Mario Kart section of Super #Mario Land is 76,916 square feet; the Donkey Kong section, 204,993 square feet. With estimated 3 year construction time for Japan's #Nintendo expansion, USF land could be open in time for @WaltDisneyWorld 50th in 2021.— Chip S. (@chickenlilchip) November 21, 2017
A few more #Nintendo Land plan details, including a map. The plans show Universal plans to have dining with a total seating capacity of 365 seats. Sorry we didn't have time to shade in the map, but you can see Simpsons and Fast Food corner to the left and ET to the bottom right. pic.twitter.com/xXqg52s9CX— Chip S.
