Voodoo Doughnut Now Open for Preview
The preview is a time for our guests to sample the delightfully weird and sinfully delicious creations as we put the finishing touches on the experience in preparation for the venue’s official opening. During this time, the shop will be open on a limited, unscheduled basis.
Speaking of the shop – think wacky and bright!
The founders of Voodoo Doughnut, Kenneth “Cat Daddy” Pogson and Tres Shannon, have brought the same vision for their first store in Portland to life in Universal CityWalk – first in Hollywood and now Orlando. That means you can experience pink-theming, an offbeat vibe and irreverent doughnut names for the first time east of the Mississippi.
You’ll be struck by the vibrancy of the pink and yellow walls and quirky knick-knacks, including antique chandeliers, skeleton mannequins playing in a mariachi band, a doughnut throne (yes, you read that correctly!) and more. Exclusive to our location, the throne will sit right outside the shop and will allow you to take the most unique photos while savoring sweet treats. What could be better?
Upon entering the shop, you’ll be greeted by the aroma of freshly glazed sweetness. And no matter where you look there will be doughnuts, doughnuts and more doughnuts. You’ll immediately start drooling once you see the spinning carousel full of the mouthwatering creations. From Oh Captain, My Captain to the Bacon Maple Bar and the iconic Voodoo Doll doughnut – I’m so ready to sample them all!
Also exclusive to our location is a decorating counter where you’ll be able to watch as our master decorators prepare the toppings and icing designs on the more than 50 types of doughnuts.
You can get your hands on fun merchandise items too, including tumblers, travel and coffee mugs, t-shirts, sweatshirts and more. And don’t miss the other eclectic and offbeat objects in the shop like a statue of the Voodoo Doll doughnut, a shark in a sweater and a spiral staircase to nowhere…
Stay tuned to the blog for updates, including when the venue will officially grand open and click here to check out all of the delicious doughnuts you can devour.
