Room Description:

Experience the world of Despicable Me in its newly-renovated kid’s suites where the rooms capture the excitement and playfulness of Gru’s Laboratory. The Despicable Me Kids Suites let mom and dad have a little privacy, and the kids have some fun! With a standard king bedroom for the adults plus a separate room for the kids, there's plenty of space for the whole family at 650 - 675 square feet. The two separate rooms are connected via a door that can be open or closed, and feature a single entrance to the adult room. In other words, the children's room opens only into the adult's room, and not into the hallway. The kids’ rooms invite you to sleep like Margo, Edith and Agnes in custom-designed missile beds with Minion inspired bedding complete with Gru’s scarf, plus a separate closet and television.
