Think theme parks are just for thrill rides? Not at Universal Studios Florida™ where you can spend time with your favorite Universal characters and get a special once-in-a-lifetime selfie. The whole family will have fun at Universal Studios™, and these special meet and greets are just a cool piece of the whole experience. Plus, it’s just a fun, great experience to meet your heroes whether they’re from another universe or from under the sea!
Throughout the day at Universal Studios, various characters come out to greet guests and fans. Theme park employees typically have information about character appearance times and locations, so just ask when you arrive. If you want to ensure you’ll definitely meet characters, then consider Universal’s Superstar Character Breakfast, where kids and families get to dine with the loveable SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, and the Minions! This special dining engagement is a separately ticketed event and available Thursday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Another great opportunity to see your characters is during Universal’s Superstar Parade™. There are plenty of great places to see and meet some of your favorite characters in the parade, so be sure to hang out at Battery Park or Mel’s Drive-in during the parade.
Whatever you plan to do—take your chances at spotting your characters throughout the park, wait to see them during the parade, or pay to dine with them, you’ll want to stay close to the action. Rosen Inn is the closest hotel to Universal Studios Florida™, plus guests enjoy complimentary scheduled shuttle service to and from the park. The hotel comforts are perfect for families with small children: a seasonally-heated swimming pool, a video arcade game room, and Shogun Japanese Steakhouse, a great entertaining restaurant onsite.
