ORLANDO, Fla. - Universal Orlando is planning a major expansion to one of its most popular rides.

The theme park is transforming part of its property into the world of "The Simpsons," according to a new report.

Theme park blog 'Scream Scape' reports that visitors will soon see Simpsons-themed attractions outside the ride.

Bloggers say that not only will visitors see a new "Krusty Burger"  and "Moe's Tavern," there will also be a "Kentucky Fried Panda"  and a mini "Duff Brewery" bar.

The bar will reportedly be built on the edge of the lagoon.

There are also reports that the park may build a new ride themed after the alien characters Kang and Kodos.

Universal has not confirmed the report.
