Seuss Landing: Doctor Seuss area

Written By Carlos Braga

Seuss Landing is on Island of Adventures, next to Universal Studios. To get there, just enter and turn right.

The inspiration for this area comes from the stories of Dr. Seuss, a famous American author. In Brazil, it is likely that you have already heard of the classic ?O Gatola da Cartola? (?The Cat in the Hat?).

Dr's books Seuss were part of the childhood of children of the 90s, as well as some animations that were inspired by them. As such, adults visiting Island of Adventures will have many memories there.

However, this is an area dedicated especially to young children. Therefore, Seuss Landing's colors are striking and the attractions are very childish.

Seuss Landing Video

We have shown this area several times on our social networks, both on youtube when in the stories Instagram.

It's not our favorite area precisely because it's more geared towards children and we love extreme attractions.

However, we like it a lot, we think it's beautiful and we always like to spend some time there on our trips.

Let's enjoy my favorite park with me then? Follow the video!

Seuss Landing attractions

First, it's important that you know the safety specifications for Seuss Landing attractions. They all follow the same, so it turns out to be quite easy.

Anyway, the minimum required height is 36 inches (0.92 meters). However, children under 48 inches (1.22 meters) must be accompanied, on a mandatory basis.

In addition, it is also important for you to know that all attractions accept Universal Express. That is, in case of long queues, be sure to use it to optimize the time on your tour!

Dear-Seuss-el

A playground is not a playground without a carousel, right?! Therefore, the Caro-Seuss-el draws a lot of attention from children, especially for its colors.

The attraction sits in the middle of Seuss Landing and you are unlikely to miss it. Despite being a common carousel, without much difference in terms of adventure, it enchants the public with its richness of detail.

Each of the "horses" they are different colorful and very detailed characters. If your child goes to Caro-Seuss-el, you can stand next to him, as the speed of the attraction is not high. Also, the duration is about 2 minutes.

Caro-Seuss-el is rich in details

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

This attraction is very similar to some where you get on a ?plane? and rotates around an axis. However, instead of airplanes, in One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish the vehicles are fish.

Like all attractions in the area, this one also features rich details and very striking colors. The fish also squirt water to the beat of the soundtrack, but nothing that could get you wet.

The Cat in the Hat

This attraction was inspired by the book of the same name (or ?O Gatola da Cartola?, in Brazil. Therefore, you will go through several scenes of adventure by Gatola and the Thing?s.

By the way, here's some important information: you may not know the characters in Dr. Seuss. But, without a doubt, the Thing?s do you know? at least by name! They are the ones who name the famous hoodies and objects in the park.

The High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride!

This is a children's roller coaster and, therefore, does not have sudden drops or high speed. In short, it's a suspended tour on the part of Seuss Landing.

You can even go inside one of the local restaurants, the Circus McGurkus Cafe Stoo-pendous. That is, you will have a different view of coffee and that's pretty cool!

If I Ran the Zoo

In this attraction, children will be able to imagine that they are running a zoo. As a result, they will live some adventures with animals and Dr. Seuss.

Well, naturally there you will find a series of the most famous characters from Dr. Seuss like:

special appearances

During the Christmas season, it is possible to meet several characters from the Grinch films such as the mayor and other famous characters from the films.

One cool thing is that the Grinch normally found in this area is the grinch of the drawing. However, at Christmas time the Grinch that passes by is the Movie Grinch by Jim Carrey! It is simply sensational!

Where to eat at Seuss Landing

Seuss Landing has 4 dining options. In turn, the prices of 3 of them are great and received the classification of only one “$” by Universal itself. In other words, a meal starts at US$ 14.99 per person.

The last of these, however, is breakfast with the Grinch. So, you should know some important information, which is similar to breakfast with Disney princesses.

Also, remember that you need to advise of any food intolerances and/or restrictions in Orlando restaurants. Each of these places has its own menu that can vary according to the day, so always let the waiter know.

Moose Juice, Goose Juice

This diner was inspired by one of Dr. Seuss ("Dr. Seuss's Sleep Book"). In the story, the characters dream of special drinks, which is why you can try them here.

In addition, the menu also has snacks, various drinks, fruits, churros, pretzels, etc. This is definitely a great spot for a snack while on the tour!

Circus McGurkus Cafe Stoo-pendous

Circus McGurkus Cafe Stoo-pendous is a great spot for lunch or dinner! The service is fast-food, so the menu is very characteristic.

You can choose from fried chicken, pizza, burgers, salads and even spaghetti.

Oh! Be sure to look up, as this is where The High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride passes.

Green Eggs and Ham Café

At this kiosk, you can try nothing but green foods. That's right! Here, the most famous dish is the green eggs with ham, but you can also enjoy the hamburgers with green cheese.

Although it seems strange, the taste of the food here is very tasty. The color is just set design, so don't worry.

If you get tired along the way and still don't want to leave Seuss Landing, look for the characters!

At certain times during the day, a Universal Team Member, accompanied by the characters of Dr. Seuss, tell the stories of the author.

So can you sit nearby and still know? or recognize? the stories of the famous Dr. Seuss!

I think one of the most enjoyable parts of Orlando is meeting the characters. Even though I know it's not really them, it's really nice to hug them for a few minutes!

So, at Seuss Landing it would be no different! In certain locations in the area, you can find characters like The Cat in the Hat, Grinch and the Thing's.

Seuss Landing stores

I always like to go into the stores in the parks, even if it's not to buy something. The layout of the locations, in addition to each of the products, is pretty cool. Especially about the iconic characters of Dr. Seuss.

So, I listed the 4 Seuss Landing stores in a very simple way:

  • All the Books You Can Read: here you can find classic books by the author who inspired this area of Island of Adventures, as well as products such as clothing and toys;
  • Cats, Hats & Things: as soon as you leave The Cat in the Hat, you can visit this store, which has several exclusive products;
  • Mulberry Street Store: I believe this is the most complete store in the area, as it has a variety of clothes, objects, toys, gifts… A lot!
  • Snookers & Snookers Sweet Candy Cookers: this is another shop at the end of the attractions, this time The High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride. If you are a chocoholic, I recommend that you do not miss this place!
