As of today, Universal Citywalk has partially opened. Parking is free (at the moment), and the following are supposed to be open:

Voodoo Doughnut
Johnny Rockets
Blaze Pizza
Starbucks
Crepe Cafe
Pizza Hut & KFC
Taco Bell
Buca di Beppo
Shoe Palace
Skechers
Guess Accessories

On a side note, apparently the Smashburger is being replaced by The Habit (not open yet).

Honestly I am shocked by this news. Comcast never misses an opportunity to nickel and dime their audience.

I'm really looking forward to The Habit replacing Smashburger. Smashburger (at this specific location, I haven't been to other locations) really sucked.

So far CityWalk has been dead, but that's to be expected since not much is open yet. I'm surprised that we haven't heard an official opening date for the park since Disneyland already announced, but the park has been ramping up in person staffing levels so I wouldn't be surprised if an opening date is too far away.

Rumors are estimating mid-July, but as usual, things are apt to change.

IMO Smashburger has always been extremely overrated, kinda like In & Out. No matter how you make it seem like your fast food burger is different and better than the others, it's still just a fast food burger. Some are just more expensive than others. I'm not saying a McDonald's burger is the same as Smash or In & Out, I'm just saying they're sub-par. Habit Burger falls into the same category, so don't get your hopes up.

Perhaps it's due to them focusing more resources on getting their backlot and soundstages open again for movies rather than getting theme park guests in. Remember that those sets and soundstages are rented out by every player in the industry. They're not solely used for Universal films. If Hollywood has approval to start filming again I'm sure they're focusing on making themselves available.

I had never heard of it before one opened up here in Orlando. We went. It was good. Would gladly go back. I actually have not heard a single person mention Smashburger again until I just read this thread. I had no idea it was "overrated" or even "rated" at all.

For the record, I think In N Out is stupid and the people who claim In N Out is the best thing ever are stupid.

Now THAT is a place that is overrated. I literally had never even heard of Smashburger before! :lmao:
