 There are missile-shaped beds, Minions rappelling from the ceiling - and more.  Each of the hotel's 18 kids suites will feature the new theme, allowing children to feel just like Margo, Edith and Agnes - the popular characters from the Despicable Me film.  The suites are available for reservations for stays beginning October 1.   

"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 on July 3, presents an ideal time for the Minions to take over our kids suites." 

On-site hotel guests at Universal Orlando receive a package of exclusive benefits, including Early Park Admission and free Universal Express Unlimited ride access which lets them skip the regular lines on most rides and attractions in Universal Studios and Universal's Islands of Adventure.  Guests can also save up to 30 percent when they stay three nights or more with the Stay More, Save More promotion.
