Despicable Me Attraction

6/9/12
**VIDEO SPOILER**
Today the Despicable Me attraction soft opened to the public after a day & a half of team member previews. When we arrived around 7pm, the wait was posted at 90 minutes. We returned 2 hours later to see it at 75 minutes. We didn't experience the ride today, but got a peek at the dance party at the end of the attraction in the gift shop. If you want to be surprised, skip the video. Enjoy!

"Super Silly Stuff", the gift shop for the upcoming Despicable Me attraction is now open! Great attention to detail, very similar to Hogsmeade stores. More details to the store are coming - such as a giant unicorn over the exit doors. We were told there is something very cool behind that black curtain that was being heavily guarded by an employee. That same employee by the curtain also told us they were hoping to soft open today, if that's true...

Update: Apparently the store was open for that night only as a sneek peak. It may be open again before the attraction opens, but there are no guarantees.  

We don't generally do updates like this, but we wanted to share these pictures and information with you.

I just booked a week in one of the Disney resorts. I am going to surprise my kids with a Disney vacation. I had no idea they had a Despicable Me attraction. They are going to be so excited, they love that movie. We will definitely going to have to check that out. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Mackenzie,

I hate to possibly break some bad news to you...but it's at Universal Studios.
