Voodoo Doughnut is coming to Universal Orlando Resort
Universal Orlando Resort officially announced today that the popular doughnut shop Voodoo Doughnut is coming to CityWalk at Universal Orlando Resort. The venue will be replacing the former Element Store, which recently closed its doors.
The popular doughnut chain features a variety of doughnut flavors, including Dirt Doughnut, the Bacon Maple Bar, Grape Ape and, of course, Voodoo Doll doughnuts.
The new Voodoo Doughnut location is set to open at Universal CityWalk in Orlando this spring. Universal Studios Hollywood opened their Voodoo Doughnut location last year at their CityWalk. Voodoo has six other locations throughout the country, including Oregon, Texas and Colorado.

Special shoutout to Parkscope for discovering the press release, which we have after the break.
Who: Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson and Tres Shannon created Voodoo Doughnut in Portland, Oregon in 2003. The pair had enjoyed experimenting with unique flavors to create eccentric pastries and they turned their passion into the phenomenon that is Voodoo Doughnut. As they say, the rest is history.
What: Voodoo Doughnut will open at Universal CityWalk, Universal Orlando Resort’s entertainment and dining complex. Loved for its sinfully delicious, delightfully weird lineup of fried creations, Voodoo Doughnut will feature signature originals and one-of-a-kind delectables such as the Dirt Doughnut, the Bacon Maple Bar, Grape Ape and, of course, Voodoo Doll doughnuts.
When: The new Voodoo Doughnut location is set to open at Universal CityWalk in Orlando this spring. Stay tuned at UniversalOrlando.com, the Universal Orlando blog and social channels for more information.
Where: Since their Portland, Oregon origins, Shannon and Pogson have continued to spread their unique flavors with several new locations including a few more in Oregon and shops in Denver, Colorado; Austin, Texas and CityWalk at Universal Studios Hollywood. The new location at Universal Orlando will be the first location east of the Mississippi. The shop will feature the same eclectic pink theming and irreverent names that can be found in current Voodoo Doughnut locations. It will be located next to NBC Sports Grill & Brew, just steps away from the iconic Universal Globe and Universal Studios Florida entrance.
Why: Delicious doughnuts… Need we say more! Your mouth should be watering at this point.
