ORLANDO, Fla. – Two attractions in Universal Orlando’s Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone have now returned to pre-pandemic operations.

Just days ago, Universal brought back the pre-show and interplanetary passports to the E.T. Adventure attraction.

Before guests board a bike to fly alongside E.T., they’re asked their name by a team member and given an interplanetary passport card. That card is later scanned by a team member, and near the end of the attraction, E.T. says the guest’s name and bids them goodbye before exiting.

Both the pre-show and and the personalized cards were suspended when the parks reopened from the coronavirus pandemic.

Just around the corner from the E.T. Adventure, families can once again walk into the Curious George Goes To Town area.

The interactive playground features a water play area and “Man with the Yellow Hat’s Ball Factory” where kids can blast and launch thousands of foam balls.

The Woody Woodpecker’s KidZone is located in Universal Studios.
