Changes are afoot at Universal Orlando’s CityWalk entertainment complex. Two familiar faces, Cinnabon and Quiet Flight Surf Shop, are set to permanently close their doors this month to pave the way for “exciting new experiences,” according to a recent announcement by Universal.

Cinnabon devotees can breathe a sigh of relief. While their current location will shutter on April 28th, Universal confirms Cinnabon will be relocating within CityWalk. In the interim, guests can satisfy their cravings for Cinnabon’s signature cinnamon rolls at Fresh Eats in the security hub, with additional carts rumored to be popping up around CityWalk. A dedicated Cinnabon kiosk near Margaritaville is also reportedly in the works for the coming months.

Surfers seeking beach apparel and gear will need to find a new destination, as Quiet Flight Surf Shop will be catching its last wave on April 14th.

Universal is remaining tight-lipped on the official replacements, but rumors are swirling online. The buzz suggests a potential Super Nintendo World retail location could be taking over the combined space, expanding the existing Universal Studios Store and offering a treasure trove of themed merchandise in anticipation of the new Super Nintendo World land opening at Epic Universe next year.
