The Bottom Line
Billed as a “legendary journey that fuses captivating storytelling” with a “multi-sensory experience,” DreamWorks Theatre will feature a revolving film library of DreamWorks Animation’s most popular franchises. First up is an original Kung-Fu Panda film created specifically for the attraction, called The Emperor’s Quest, which will use the latest in projection mapping technology and LED lighting effects to immerse audiences.
The theme park does refer to the attraction as “Kung Fu Panda Adventure,” which is reflected on the attraction’s main marquee, park map, mobile app, USHWaitTimes.com, and the in-park Studio Directories.
Appropriate for all ages.
Crowd Patterns & Wait Times
DreamWorks Theatre is located smack dab in the middle of the park and is generally the first attraction visitors see upon entering. That said, its wait time will be much higher in the beginning of the day; therefore, we recommend experiencing the attraction closer to park close.
The main portion of the queue is outdoors in a beautiful, garden-like setting based on the Golden Age of 1920s Hollywood (like the rest of the show building’s aesthetics).
Along the way, be sure to keep an eye out for a number of other DreamWorks Animation figures, such as a sleeping Pinocchio in the box office booth.
Length of Experience
The entire experience lasts for eight minutes, which includes a preshow and the main show itself.
What to Know Before You Go
The theatre is able to host 241 guests per showing. The line does moves sporadically, but quickly. Guests are ushered inside the preshow roughly every 5 minutes.
When inside the pre-show room, the best place to view is close by the display case on the left side of the room.
The experience is in 2D and is great for all ages.
Food and drinks are not permitted inside.
