Universal Orlando has announced that Minion Land – which includes Villain-Con Minion Blast, Minion Cafe, and Bake My Day – will officially open on August 11, 2023.
This one-of-a-kind land expands upon the wildly popular Despicable Me Minion Mayhem attraction to engage the entire family in a new collection of humorous adventures inspired by Illumination’s beloved Minions franchise. In Illumination’s Villain-Con Minion Blast guests can blast their way to supervillain stardom. Blending immersive sets, interactive game-based technology, and an original storyline, this first-of-its-kind attraction puts guests’ villainous skills to the test to see if they have what it takes to become a member of the Vicious 6 – a notorious group of supervillains from the hit film, “Minions: The Rise of Gru.”
Guests can fuel up for the mayhem with a unique dining experience, Illumination’s Minion Cafe – a new eatery run by the Minions featuring inventive fare for every guest; Pop-A-Nana – a kiosk featuring banana-flavored popcorn; Freeze Ray Pops – a walk-up window serving refreshingly colorful frozen treats; and Bake My Day – a retail location and bakery featuring Minion-themed sweet treats. They can also pick up all the items necessary to complete their villainous transformation at the new Evil Stuff retail store. Guests can also stop by the outdoor Illumination Theater façade to meet, greet, and interact with beloved characters like the Minions, Gru, Margo, Edith, and Agnes from the “Despicable Me” franchise, and Rosita, Gunter, and Johnny from the hit film “Sing.”
