An Inside Look at the Despicable Me Character Breakfast at Universal Orlando

Despicable Me Character Breakfast at Universal Orlando Resort

Universal Orlando Resort is in the process of a massive expansion to its offerings both inside the parks as well as at its resorts. With new hotels, rides and even rumors of a soon to be announced new park, there’s a lot to check out. One of the many new experiences available to guests is character meals in the parks and hotels. We recently got a chance to experience the Despicable Me Character Breakfast at Lowes Royal Pacific Resort and want to share a look at what guests can expect from the encounter.

The Despicable Me Character Breakfast happens on Saturdays at the beautiful Tahitian room in Royal Pacific. There are currently three seating times available to book, 8:00 AM, 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM. Your experience begins with check-in at a podium located outside the restaurant. Reservations must be made and paid for in advance and you are required to present your printed out tickets upon arrival. Once checked in, guests are treated to the first special photo opportunity with Gru and one of his Minions.

After the first photo area, guests are escorted to their table inside the restaurant. Tables are arranged by group seating, so your party will be sharing a table with other guests. Once seated, guests are allowed to fill up on a large standard breakfast buffet. The spread included items like eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes and of course bananas! Continental breakfast items are offered as well like pastries and fresh fruit. Coffee and juice are also provided.

The meal continues with table-side visits by favorite characters from the popular movie series. Characters are led to each table where every party gets a chance to interact and take photos. While Universal Team Members are on hand to take your photos, you will need to provide them with a camera or phone to use. The characters were fun and the staff made sure that each group had time to interact with them. Our first visit was from Gru himself, followed by the girls (Agnes, Margo, and Edith) and finally one of the silly Minions.

We loved our visit with the characters and found the food to be tasty and fresh. We never felt rushed and would definitely recommend the meal if you have a Minion fan in your family. The Despicable Me Character Breakfast isn’t the only offering of its type at the resort. Guests can also dine with superheroes at the Marvel Character Dinner in Islands of Adventure. Reservations for a Universal Character Meal must be made up to 24 hours in advance. Theme park admission is not required for the Despicable Me Breakfast but is required for the Marvel Character Dinner.
