Today, I’m taking you on a special trip to Universal Studios to experience the all-new DreamWorks Land for the team member preview!

This land isn’t officially open to the public yet, but we got lucky enough to snag a spot during their registration for passholder previews and were invited to join a Team Member today for their preview!

The first thing I see upon entering the land are meet and greet spots for characters like Gabby from Gabby’s Dollhouse and Shrek and Donkey from Shrek. Of course, I had to get a photo with Shrek!

Next up, it was time to try some of the amazing food options at Shrek’s Swamp Snacks. I opted for the Shrek pretzel, which is a Shrek-shaped pretzel with green cheese (it wasn’t quite as oozing as I expected!), and a pepperoni waffle with marinara dipping sauce. The verdict? The pretzel was a good, standard theme park pretzel, and the waffle was a bit dry on its own, but much better with the dipping sauce!
