Open seasonally

Unfortunately, Gru’s is only open on crowded days. If you come on a regular weekday, don’t expect Gru’s to be open.

Beat the crowds

Comparatively speaking, Gru’s Lab Cafe receives relatively modest foot traffic throughout the day. Its location next to Super Silly Fun Land towards the back end of the park makes it a good place to eat if you want to beat the crowds and avoid excess lines.

Need to find a seat?

While Gru’s Lab Cafe offers seating right outside the entrance of the restaurant, you can also find quieter seating located in the Parisian Courtyard area of the park.
