Created and produced by DreamWorks Animation and Universal Creative, “Kung Fu Panda: The Emperor’s Quest” recounts a plot filled story whereby on the morning of The Emperor’s Great Feast of Heroes, dragon warrior Po embarks on a wild and perilous mission to deliver the rare and precious Liquid of Limitless Power to the Palace, while enlisting guests to join him on the exciting adventure filled with raging rapids, river pirates, awesome magic and Kung Fu.

When does it open?
Friday, June 15 is the official grand opening date of the all-new DreamWorks Theater featuring the premier attraction, “Kung Fu Panda: The Emperor’s Quest.”
Where is it at?
The newly constructed building that houses the DreamWorks Theater is inspired by Mission revival architecture and harkens back to the Golden Age of Hollywood’s Art Deco period of the 1920s, including a box office ticket seller booth, reminiscent of the time period and staffed by a three-dimensional usher asleep on the job.
It is located in the upper lot, just where you used to find Shrek.
