EVERYTHING You Can Do In Universal Orlando’s NEW Minion Land

Universal Orlando’s Minion Land officially opens on August 11th.


We were invited to a media event, though, to check out EVERYTHING you’ll be able to see and do in that land, though, early. So we’re bringing you along for the ride.

Okay, so here’s the deal: Minion Land soft-opened in Universal in June 2023, but its official opening date isn’t until August 11th. We were invited to a media event, though, to check out EVERYTHING you’ll be able to see and do in that land.

Welcome to Minion Land!

When we got there, we listened to a few speakers and even got to meet a Minion!


Dance party, anyone?





Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast

A brand new attraction is debuting with Minion Land. On Villain-Con Minion Blast, you’ll join the Minions, Belle Bottom, Jean Clawed, and the rest of the Vicious 6 in a unique blaster attraction where you’ll stand on moving platforms while using Freeze Rays, Banana Bombs, Explosive Nunchucks, and more to get points and become a supervillain in your own right.

Let’s go to Villain-Con!

We could already tell that the theming was excellent as we walked in.

Walking in!

Check it out!


We loved getting to check out all the interactive details and play with the blasters!


At the end, there’s also a pretty cool gift shop.

Despicable Me Minion Mayhem

Minion Land also features Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, an existing Universal Orlando attraction that has been brought into Minion Land. On this attraction, you’ll join Gru, his daughters, and the Minions on a wild and unpredictable ride.

Minion Cafe

You’ll also be able to dine at Minion Cafe, a Minion-themed restaurant where Kevin is the head chef with the other Minions helping to prepare your meals. You’ll be able to dine in the restaurant (with its fun Minions theming) or pick up your meal to go. The menu features a lot of drinks and foods, including PX-41 Punch, Otto’s Noodle Bowl, Chicken Stuart’s Szechuan Surprise, Fluffy Unicorn Cupcake, Minion Swiss Roll, and more. Be sure to check out our FULL review here.

We ate EVERYTHING at Minion Cafe

We thought that this Cafe was adorable. Everything is YELLOW, of course!

We tried a few snacks, too! Check out these fries that look like Minions.
