Universal Orlando Resort Reveals All-New Details About Minion Land Opening This Summer at Universal Studios Florida

Minion Land

May 17, 2023

As we continue to experience growth across our parks division, today, Universal Destinations & Experiences announced new details about Minion Land, an immersive new area coming to Universal Orlando created in partnership between Universal’s award-winning creative team and the acclaimed filmmakers from Illumination. 
Inspired by the iconic Minions characters, Universal Destinations & Experiences is raising the bar on experiential storytelling for the entire family by using the beloved stories and characters often seen in films. Guests can fully immerse themselves in Minion Land, bringing to life this fan-favorite franchise.   

Today’s news follows the exciting and highly successful opening of Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Hollywood that has become a guest favorite.  In addition, earlier in the year, the company announced plans to build a one-of-kind, original theme park for families with young children in Frisco, Texas and a year-round Halloween experience in Las Vegas inspired by the highly- popular Halloween Horror Nights franchise. 
Here's what guests will experience upon entering Minion Land:  

Guests can put their villainous skills to the test in Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast – an all-new attraction where guests compete against each other in a fully interactive gaming experience that’s so much fun, it’s a crime. Afterward, guests exit through Evil Stuff, an all-new retail location where they can stock up on Villain-Con and Minions merchandise. More details about Villain-Con Minion Blast will be revealed soon.   

It’s Minions in the kitchen, mischief in the dining room, and tons of tasty food at the new Illumination’s Minion Cafe – the marquee dining location within Minion Land. This immersive new eatery offers something for every palate in a highly-entertaining dining experience that features three themed areas designed after beloved Minions Kevin, Stuart, Bob and Otto: the Kitchen – where guests will get a glimpse of the equipment and gear the Minions have used to whip up the cafe’s menu; the Breakroom – where guests can dine in the Minions’ break space that includes everything from “Office Safety Tips” to a vending machine stocked with mischievous items; and the Dining Room– a vibrant space adorned with colorful artwork courtesy of the Minions and more. Guests can also enjoy their meal on an outdoor patio that overlooks the fun of Minion Land.  

Just as eye-catching as Minion Cafe’s incredibly-themed surroundings is its delicious menu – the latest example of how Universal Orlando’s award-winning culinary team continues to raise the bar when it comes to theme park dining. Guests of all ages can enjoy inventive, family-friendly fare featuring nearly 20 items inspired by memorable characters and staples from the Minions franchise, including eclectic “despica-bowls” like Carl’s Crispy Cauliflower (vegan offering), Otto’s Noodle Bowl and Agnes’s Honeymoon Soup, delectable handhelds like the Steak & “Cheese Ray” Sandwich, adorable desserts like Bob’s Teddy Bear Chocolate Cream Puff, and so much more.   

The Minion Cafe will also feature an express window with a limited menu for those looking to satisfy their cravings quickly and return to the mayhem in Minion Land.   

Topped with a massive pink cupcake that’s visible from anywhere in the land, Bake My Day is a whimsical retail location and bakery featuring a selection of Minion-themed sweet treats, including cupcakes, macarons, s’mores and more, along with exclusive Minion-inspired merchandise like apparel, plush, drinkware, accessories, keychains and more.  

Banana-flavored popcorn, anyone? This walkup location features sweet and savory popcorn inspired by the Minions’ love for bananas. Here, guests may also find an assortment of cute popcorn buckets, including the Minion Selfie bucket.  

Guests can cool off with a visit to Freeze Ray Pops, featuring a variety of colorful popsicles inspired by Gru, the Minions and Vector – along with beverages. 

Guests can meet, greet and interact with beloved characters like the Minions, Gru, Margo, Edith and Agnes, plus new additions from the hit film “Sing” – Rosita, Gunter and Johnny – at an outdoor Illumination Theater facade. 

Guests can also discover murals, photo ops and more throughout Minion Land that celebrate additional characters from popular Illumination films.
