Voodoo Doughnut Now Open for Preview

Share this post:

For months I’ve been preparing my taste buds for the glory that is Voodoo Doughnut. And I’m excited to announce that the venue is now open for preview at Universal CityWalk.

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…

    My mom and I are coming down to Florida in October for their Halloween Horror Nights, and can’t wait to visit the Voodoo shop. The shop looks awesome, I can’t wait to see all the kinds of doughnuts they have. It’s going to be hard to pick only one to try, the one I would like to try is the eight mile one with the M&M’s after that I don’t know.

    Does anyone know how long the preview will be open for? I am visiting in less than 2 weeks and what to know if I’ll be able to go.

    Thank you!!

      No idea, but I’ve walked past a couple of times and the lines are insane!

    Was just there last weekend. Wait time on Saturday night at 9pm was 45 mins. So no Voodoo Doughnuts for me.
