Welcome to the world of Dr Seuss here in Seuss Landing!
I haven’t touched on Dr Seuss food much, other than making Who-Hash from How The Grinch Stole Christmas, but Seuss Landing at Universal’s Island of Adventures gave me plenty to inspire me. Here’s some photos of the marvellous buildings to get your creativity flowing too!
Let’s choose where we want to go!
I love how everything is thought through, even the garbage cans!
Care for a drink? I’ve always wondered what Dr Seuss Moose Juice and Goose Juice tasted like… While I didn’t try it, ‘Moose Juice’ is fresh orange juice, and ‘Goose Juice’ is either frozen sour green apple juice or watermelon or grape juice.
Seuss Landing Rides
Our first little ride was The High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride, which tells the story of Sylvester McMonkey McBean and the Sneetches.
I think the grin on my face says how thrilled I was to be on a Dr Seuss animal, on Caro-Seuss-el. I’m out of touch with his animals but there were elephant birds, twin camels, cowfish, Mulligatawnies, aqua mop tops and dog-a-lopes to name a few. The truffula trees were at the entrance to the ride.
There was also the Cat in the Hat ride that takes you through the story (you couldn’t take photos and quite frankly the way it whipped you around sometimes, you wouldn’t want to have anything in your hand in case it went flying!). And One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish ride which we passed on. (My phone had died by this point).
Seuss Landing Stores
Want a peek into Snookers and Snookers Sweet Candy Cookers? This store is filled with candy and Dr Seuss souvenirs. There’s Rice Krispie Thing 1 or Thing 2 cookies, brownies (triple chocolate, caramel or butterfudge) and cupcakes in the following flavours: red velvet with cream cheese, key lime, double chocolate, pina colada, vanilla bean, cookies and cream. They sell s’mores, turtles (white chocolate or dark chocolate), dipped pretzels, and fudge in a wide variety of flavours– chocolate caramel, peanut butter chocolate, chocolate pecan, chocolate, rocky road, m&m, mint chocolate swirl, creamsicle, vanilla caramel, cookie dough and cookies and cream. These, from the cookies through to the fudge, were all $3.95 each. The cheapest option was a crispy and brownie pop ($1.95). A marshmallow stick cost a whopping $7.95. There were also candy apples, caramel apples, caramel apple with nuts ($5.95 each). And the ‘gourmet’ apples? $8.95. o_O
Not that I can talk, I went on a crazy shopping spree in the Honeydukes store where everything was around the $9.95 mark, with few exceptions.
Other than the Moose Juice, Goose Juice, there was also Fuddnuddler Bros. popcorn, Hop on Pop Ice Cream, while the only sit down place was Circus McGurkus Cafe Stoo-pendous.
And that is a story that no one can beat,
And to think that I saw it on Mulberry Street.
Here’s a few store fronts. I would have loved to buy a Thing 1 and Thing 2 top for my sister and I, but the reality is, we would never wear them, so I picked up the iron on badges in case we ever need to make a costume. In theme parks I settle for buying charms since we’re more likely to make them into necklaces or bracelets and wear them on a everyday basis.
“Think left and think right,
Think low and think high,
Oh, the THINKS you can think up
if only you try!
