Today, Universal Orlando announced that it would be opening a new and improved Simpsons attraction based on the fictional town of Springfield, which the Simpsons call home. Universal says they've reconstructed the streets of downtown Springfield, complete with a Jebediah statue, and visitors will be able to get a "Krusty-certified meat sandwich" at Krusty Burger, donuts at Lard Lad and have an actual Duff Beer (brewed for Universal Orlando) at Moe's Tavern.
