Universal Orlando is integrating the theme park experience into its hotels

Children can experience the world of Despicable Me in newly-renovated, film-inspired suites, debuting this autumn at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando. 

These one-of-a-kind suites capture the excitement and playfulness of Gru’s house, with custom-designed missile beds with Minion-inspired bedding, so that children can sleep like Gru’s adorable girls: Margo, Edith and Agnes. 

All of the hotel’s 18 kids’ suites will be transformed with the new theme. 

“This is the latest way we are integrating the theme park experience into our on-site hotels,” says Vince LaRuffa, Vice President of Resort Sales and Marketing. 

“The popularity of the Despicable Me Minion Mayhem attraction at Universal Studios, along with this summer’s release of Despicable Me 2, presents an ideal time for the Minions to take over our kids suites.”

The adjoining adults’ room features a king-sized bed in the hotel’s newly-renovated Italian luxury design. 

The suites are now available for reservations, for stays beginning October 1st.
