Hi-Diddly-Ho, Simpsons Fans! Universal Orlando to Open Springfield, Complete With Moe's Tavern, Krusty Burger and Duff Brewery
Here's some news that should make Simpsons fans happier than Homer at an all-you-can-eat buffet.
Universal Orlando Resort is bringing Springfield to life. Woo-hoo!
A description of the new area, opening this summer:
For the first time ever -- anywhere -- fans will be able to walk down Fast Food Boulevard and visit the places that helped Springfield stake its claim as "Shelbyville By the Sea." They will be able to grab a Krusty-certified meat sandwich at Krusty Burger, snatch the catch of the day at the Frying Dutchman, get a slice at Luigi's Pizza, go nuts for donuts at Lard Lad, enjoy a "Taco Fresho" with Bumblebee Man and imbibe at Moe's Tavern.
And yes -- there will be Duff Beer, brewed exclusively for Universal Orlando.

This is more exciting than when 7-Elevens were transformed into Kwik-E-Marts. Now if only they can divide the parking lot into Itchy and Scratchy sections. . . .
