Universal Orlando’s CityWalk will undergo an expansion during 2014. It will include the opening of a hotel, Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort, and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley.
Universal Orlando announced Thursday that it will open eight new venues across CityWalk throughout 2014 as part of a growth strategy designed to complement the entertainment complex’s collection of national brands.

The expansion comes after a nationwide search for culinary concepts that include a mix of established national brands, up-and-coming concepts and Universal’s own creations.
“We want Universal CityWalk to grow along with the rest of our destination,” said Ric Florell, senior VP of Resort Revenue Operations at Universal Orlando.
The new venues will share an overall theme that includes inviting common areas, al fresco dining, open kitchens and more.
