Universal Orlando Resort's Superstar Character Breakfast

By: Carrie McLaren


As a mom to toddlers, the one thing my girls love at theme parks is meeting characters. 

Character meals are a great way for kids to meet their favorite characters and get some well-deserved extra attention.  Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner – my family and I really enjoy these types of experiences. 

Last year, we experienced the Superstar Character Breakfast at Cafe La Bamba in Universal Studios park. We had a fantastic time seeing our favorite Nickelodeon characters, E.B. from "Hop" and 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” – it was a big highlight for her.

This particular character meal was a buffet – filled 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. Plus, it ended up saving us time too - there was no need to meet them all since we had breakfast with them!

Be sure and plan ahead, reservations for this particular meal must be made in advance.  For more information, check out the Universal Orlando Resort site

How long are the lines to meet the Despicable Me characters? I am planning on booking this breakfast for my 2 toddlers IF the lines to meet the characters out in the park are long. This is the only reason I would book it, not the food (my toddlers wake up very early and they will already have done breakfast by this time lol). So I was wondering if it is worth booking if I am only doing it for the character interaction and not for eating too.
