For our daughters 4th birthday we decided that we would do a staycation instead of having a birthday party. We are Universal Studios Annual Passholders, so we wanted to try out the hotels on property. We really wanted to do a character breakfast for the morning of Kaelyn’s birthday. When I saw that the Loews Royal Pacific Resort offered a character breakfast with the characters of Hop and Despicable Me, I knew that was it! I can not express how excited we were!
The resorts lobby is absolutely beautiful and bright! Here the girls are right in front of an outside garden, which was absolutely beautiful. Before checking in we were to do our character breakfast. When I called to make reservations they noted Kaelyn’s food allergies, which was a great plus for us. At the restaurant the hostess greeted us, double checked on Kaelyn’s allergies & wished her a happy birthday without me having to remind them! A definite great start to her birthday celebration!
My girls are also a big fan of the Despicable Me movie, so when my girls saw Gru and one of his Minions coming to visit our table they couldn’t sit still! This was a really awesome experience, because even as Annual Pass holders we have never had a chance to hang out with a Minion! It was awesome! If I do say so myself 🙂
The food was absolutely delicious and well worth the money. The chef visited our table to ask Kaelyn what she wanted to eat. He also made sure that her food was cooked separately and safely. Overall we had an absolutely wonderful experience and are planning on returning in November for our youngest daughters 2nd birthday! I have to say that this is probably one of our best character dining experiences we personally have done!
Share with us your favorite character dining experience!
