Universal's Fantastic Worlds (South Expansion Complex)

One problem with Star Trek is what iteration do you use? OS, TNG, 2009, Discovery? They don't look similar enough to do something generic like Galaxy's Edge.

An entire themed land presents additional problems. More often than not, Star Trek is on the bridge of a ship. What would the land be? An away mission? Walk around Starfleet?
Deep Space Nine, with sprinklings of the Next Generation and Voyager. If they had the rights, they could make it work.
Plenty of alien races and a whole section of DS9 was shops, restaurants and bars.

That would be cool for serious fans. But I doubt it's what non-Trekkers have in mind when they think of a Star Trek land.

That was essentially what the Star Trek Experience in Vegas was like back when that was a thing.

Apparently, Pokemon is going to be at the new park according to Alicia Stella.
So what would go in Kidzone? Are we stuck with that area forever?

And someone else on the IU Forums hinted at a Scooby Doo presence as well.
If they're going to do a whole Monsters Land, then adding Scooby-Doo to the mix makes sense. Broadens the appeal by giving something younger kids (who maybe scared of the monsters) something to look forward to.

Universal's Endless Summer Resort (Dockside Inn and Surfside Inn) relative to the expansion property (at arrow, rumored to be called Fantastic Worlds).

Aerial view of current work where (according to public records) parking is planned for Universal's expansion (rumored to be called Fantastic Worlds).

An interesting feature in Universal's expansion property.

There's quite a view into Universal's expansion property right now from Destination Pwy WB. Much equipment doing excavation, moving material elsewhere in the property. In the aerial, Destination Pwy is top left.

1st aerial photo shows what may be the start of infrastructure in Universal's expansion property for offices and warehouses supporting the existing UOR. To be built along Sand Lake Road, right side of 2nd photo. Top arrow 2nd photo at Aventura, Surfside, Dockside.

Paved parking and an office trailer complex added recently in Universal's expansion property. Tree farm has been there awhile. In 2nd photo, bottom arrow is roller coaster track staging. Possibly for the unannounced Jurassic Park project.

Aerial view of roller coaster track staged in Universal's expansion property. Track for Hagrid's Motorbike was staged in the property, it's believed this track is staged for a ride in the unannounced Jurassic Park project.

Nearly straight-down aerial view of roller coaster track staged in Universal's expansion property. Believed to be for an unannounced project in Jurassic Park.

Roller coaster track staged in Universal's expansion property. It's a long story, but in the 1990's UOR owned all of the land seen here, including at OCCC North-South. Sold it off. Few years ago bought a big block back in 2 transactions.

Not exactly on topic but is the plan for Dockside to NOT actually be on water?

I saw that. I don't know about a "step" but I was happy to see her. Her costume is pretty bad though.

Considering the source material, I think she's screen accurate (as much as she could be with a face character). Of course the majority of people would prefer her Filmation cartoon look but this works due to it being based on the Netflix series.

Yeah the costume is great! I also heard the entertainment department did this on their own initiative and presented it to Dreamworks who approved the idea. So it seems it was a bit of a passion project for the entertainment team. It’s nice to see things come about that way rather than corporate forces decisions.
