Universal Kids Resort in Frisco moves forward with zoning approval, marking progress for the family-focused theme park and 300-room themed resort hotel announced in January, according to an NBCDFW article which reports,
“in Frisco, including the park’s official name — Universal Kids Resort.
In January, the company announced it was bringing a family-focused theme park and a 300-room themed resort hotel to North Texas. On Friday, executives with Universal Destinations & Experiences, a division of Comcast NBCUniversal, the parent company of NBC 5, confirmed Friday they’d received zoning approval to move the project forward and announced the park’s official name.”
The Universal Kids Resort in Frisco will feature immersive themed lands, showcasing Universal’s entertainment, humor, and beloved characters. Despite community concerns, the project received zoning approval in March, according to a Dallas Innovates article. They say,
“The resort will include a theme park featuring “immersive themed lands” that celebrate Universal’s brand of entertainment, humor, and fun. Beloved characters and stories will be brought to life in ways “that will wow the youngest theme park goers,” Universal said. Family-friendly attractions, interactive and playful shows, unique merchandise, “fun” food and beverage venues, and character meet-and-greets will all be featured.
The Frisco City Council voted in March to approve the zoning permit for the resort, despite pushback from some in the community about the park’s potential impact on traffic and other concerns. The theme park is being built on 97 acres of land east of the Dallas North Tollway and north of Panther Creek Parkway in Frisco.”
Universal Kids Resort is anticipated to bring immediate economic impact, generating thousands of jobs, including 2,500 construction positions. The company emphasizes community value and positive impact.
