The Minions have truly taken over. At least one whole street at Universal Orlando. Right after the recently announced interactive attraction, Villain-Con Minion Blast, the theme park has released new details about its highly anticipated Minion Land!

Scheduled to open this summer, the new land expands on the Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem ride and will feature photo opportunities, restaurants, and shops focused on the successful Illumination animated films.

According to a press release from Universal Orlando Resort, "As soon as guests enter, they will be greeted by a fun and photogenic 'Minion Land' marquee with 22 Minions before embarking on the mischief that awaits them along Illumination Ave."

The Minion Cafe takes over the former Monsters Cafe and will be divided into three areas: the kitchen, where guests can catch a glimpse of the team the Minions have used to prepare the cafe's menu; the break room, where diners can hang out in the Minions' rest space, including everything from "Office Safety Tips" to a vending machine filled with mischievous items; and the Dining Room, a vibrant space adorned with colorful artwork courtesy of the Minions.
