ORLANDO, Fla. – Everyone’s favorite swamp ogre, Shrek, has a found a new home at Universal Orlando.

Shrek’s move comes as his former 4D ride closed earlier this year, and his old meet-and-greet location went behind construction walls due to the closure of the Monsters Café.

Universal has not announced what is taking over the old space.

Guests can find meet-and-greet times for Shrek in the official Universal Orlando app.
