SeaWorld Orlando opened its new Sesame Street land Thursday, and it's pretty adorable.

The immersive land features landmarks from the popular children's television show including the 123 stoop, Mr. Hooper's Store, Big Bird's Nest and Abby Cadabby's Garden, as well as the lovable furry friends Elmo, Grover and Rosita.

SeaWorld has also placed food trucks and a speciality drink stand in the land where guests can get healthy options and dessert. Mr. Hooper's Store features plush toys, apparel, collectible pins and Elmo's Interactive Light-Up Bubble Wand, which unlocks hidden surprises throughout the park.

"We are thrilled to officially welcome guests to walk down Sesame Street for the very first time in the theme park capital of the world," says Mark Pauls, SeaWorld Orlando president, in a statement.
