    New permits posted today for a new USF Project, titled Project 971, that calls for a partial demo and alteration of building 72 at Universal Studios Florida.

    Anyone know which building is 72?

    For perspective, earlier this summer, the permit filed for the Simpsons games was for Building 73.

    Building 72 is the building complex that includes the Kwik-E-Mart (72A), International Food & Film Festival (72B), and the IFFF Restrooms (72C).

    Yea. reelJustice is disappointed, but I thinka totally revamped dining experience where IFF is could be great. USF's dining isn't the strongest by far, and that area is always a bit of a dead zone.

    Just throwing it out there of one of the original rumor for TF/SS44 was a character dining experience.

    That area would make sense for it too, being near KidZone and all.

    Maybe this is the tip of the iceberg for the KidZone redo?

    I considered that...but there's really no where for him to go there. The building is basically 3 defined areas, with the restaurant in the middle, and the restrooms and Kwik-E-Mart on either end.

    So think it'll be a partial demo and they'll keep kwik e mart? Or think they'll rebuild it? Or leave it gone and the Simpsons won't have a gift shop for the rest of its life?

    IFFF could use a update to feel like it's not a 1980's cafeteria with outdated finishes and theming.

    Very interesting! I'd guess it's a renovation of IFFF, not a new attraction. Either way, awesome! :thumbs:

    IFF can go as long as they keep the Chicken Parm somewhere in the park.

    I feel like the IFF portion could be knocked down and rebuilt in a new configuration.

    If Springfield happens they might be going for a new restaurant experience that allows Simpsons character breakfast. I'm sure they would be adding new characters if they went all out for Simpsons experience. Crossing my fingers they wise up and get Futurama characters if they can get the contracts.
