This is happening. Universal Studios in Orlando is set to open a Springfield expansion to the Simpsons ride, which will take some time until completion, but in the meantime have a cold one at Moe’s or a Krusty Burger at Fast Food Boulevard. All of your favorite Springfield establishments are promised to be available to dine at including Krusty Burger, Cletus’ Chicken Shack, the Frying Dutchman, Luigi’s Pizza, Lisa’s Teahouse of Horror and Lard Lad’s Donuts. Not enough? The Kwik-E-Mart will also be open for business complete with Slushies. If there were ever a reason to visit Orlando besides Hogwarts and Lil’ Penny, this is it. Inside the Magic was there to capture it all.
The food and beverage served at all the establishments, was replaced by a previous fast food location at the park, now hoping to draw in a larger crowd with essentially the same food with a brilliant Springfield twist. Cletus’ Chicken shack offers a wide variety of chicken and potatos cooked in homely looking pots, while Lard Lad’s donuts are also for sale in a cake box stuffed with an oversized donut with Simpsons signature pink icing with rainbow springles (you may now drool/day dream while repeating this in your best Homer voice) ‘signature pink icing with rainbow springles’ (commence drool).
The Flaming Moe isn’t exactly served on fire, but in a special layered cup with orange soda and dry ice underneath giving off a smoke and bubbles effect. I’ll take it. The Duff Beer sold at Moe’s is exactly that, a locally made homer-brew (get it?) for the park. It’s currently sold in plastic cups, but will be available in a souvenir can in the future.
