???? - Future Expansion Plans - (9/11/2023) According to Attractions Management, the Universal Studios Beijing Resort is earmarked to begin work on their Phase 2 expansion by 2025. Phase 2 is expected to essentially double the size of the resort by expanding the existing theme park and/or adding a second park (or both), and adding up to five more hotels to the resort property.
(12/4/21) While Universal Studios Beijing has only just opened to guests in September, planning is now moving forward with a second phase of construction. A press briefing revealed plans to add five new hotels to the theme park resort, in addition to the current two resorts (Universal Studios Grand Hotel and the NUO Resort Hotel) that were ready on opening day.
In the grander scheme of things, it was also announced recently that Universal Studios Beijing President, Tom Mehrmann, is taking on a grander role in the newly created position of President of Universal’s Pacific Rim Park and Resorts. This will allow him to not only continue to oversee the new Beijing resort, but also Universal Studios Japan and Universal Studios Hollywood.
