Everyone is definitely excited about Super Nintendo World. Although the park is not due to open until at least three years from now, today we got a few more new details about the park in Universal Studios Orlando.
In a report by WFTV Orlando, building permits for 8.8 acres of land have been approved at Universal Studios Orlando for Super Nintendo World’s use, of which a majority of 4.7 acres will be reserved for Donkey Kong land, and 1.76 acres for Mario Kart. It is unknown at this point what the rest of the land will be used for.
As WFTV Assignment Desk Editor Chip S. points out, the park may be open before Walt Disney World celebrates its 50th anniversary, avoiding competition with the park’s fiercest competition.
The Mario Kart section of Super #Mario Land is 76,916 square feet; the Donkey Kong section, 204,993 square feet. With estimated 3 year construction time for Japan's #Nintendo expansion, USF land could be open in time for @WaltDisneyWorld 50th in 2021.

Universal Studios also has plans to increase the scale of Super Nintendo Land and they have recently purchased 500 acres of land for development. The idea is to slowly expand the size of Super Nintendo Land in phases.
