One thing my girls love at theme parks is meeting characters.
Character meals - whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner -- are a great way for kids to meet their favorites and get some personal attention.
Say hello to Spongebob Squarepants – Carrie McLaren for VISIT FLORIDA
At the Superstar Character Breakfast at Cafe La Bamba in Universal Studios park, we met our favorite Nickelodeon characters, E.B. from "Hop," Gru and the crazy Minions from "Despicable Me," Dora and Diego and Spongebob Squarepants, too.
My oldest daughter still talks about how much she loved having breakfast with her “friends” – for her, a big highlight of the trip.
Diego and Dora – Carrie McLaren for VISIT FLORIDA
This particular character meal was a buffet with a large variety of hot and cold menu items. It was a fun way for our family to kick off our day at the park. We saved time, too -- there was no need to track down the characters in the park because we'd had breakfast with them!
Be sure to plan ahead; reservations for this particular meal must be made in advance. For more information, check out the Universal Orlando Resort site.
