Illumination’s Minion Land is a “can’t miss” spot at Universal Studios.  Seriously, you can’t miss it because it’s the fist thing you’ll see when you enter the park!  This charming area may be small like the creatures for whom it’s named, but just like them, it’s full of fun and whimsy. 

Gru and his family have been appearing at Universal Studios for many years, but now he and the Minions have a place of their very own!  Illumination’s Minion Land is now open at the Universal Orlando Resort.  It features 2 fun-filled attractions, themed dining experiences, merchandise locations, and even a place to meet your favorite characters.
