Universal Orlando releases new details about Minion Land opening Summer 2023 at Universal Studios Florida.


Universal Destinations & Experiences has released more information about Minion Land, a new area at Universal Orlando that will be created in partnership with Illumination, the award-winning creative team behind the Minions films.

Universal Destinations & Experiences is enhancing the storytelling experience for families with the help of the beloved Minions characters. Guests can enjoy an immersive experience in Minion Land, bringing the fan-favorite franchise to life.

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 test their villainous skills at Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast, an all-new attraction where they compete against each other in a fully interactive gaming experience. Afterward, guests can visit Evil Stuff, a new retail location where they can purchase Villain-Con and Minions merchandise. Stay tuned for more details about Villain-Con Minion Blast.


The new Illumination’s Minion Cafe is an immersive eatery in Minion Land. It offers a highly-entertaining dining experience with tons of tasty food and mischief. The cafe has three themed areas designed after beloved Minions Kevin, Stuart, Bob and Otto. These areas are the Kitchen, the Breakroom, and the Dining Room. In the Kitchen, guests will get a glimpse of the equipment and gear the Minions have used to whip up the cafe’s menu. In the Breakroom, guests can dine in the Minions’ break space that includes everything from “Office Safety Tips” to a vending machine stocked with mischievous items. The Dining Room is 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. The menu caters to every palate.

Minion Cafe’s delectable menu is just as eye-catching as its incredibly-themed surroundings. Universal Orlando’s award-winning culinary team continues to raise the bar when it comes to theme park dining with nearly 20 items inspired by memorable characters and staples from the Minions franchise.
