Lombard’s Seafood Grille: Outdoor dining area.
There are two in-park dining experiences now available at Universal Studios Florida: The Superstar Character Breakfast and the Cinematic Dining Experience. To begin, let’s look at the general information, and then we will answer questions. Here we go:
Guests can add two extraordinary dining options to their Universal Orlando vacations – each designed to create memorable experiences for the entire family from day to night.
Universal’s Superstar Character Breakfast starts with a breakfast experience filled with smiles, laughter and long-lasting memories. Children of all ages will be joined by some very special friends: the stars from Universal’s Superstar Parade. Guests will be able to share special moments with their favorite characters, such as creating mayhem with the minions from the blockbuster animated adventure Despicable Me, posing for a photo with Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants, and getting a coveted autograph from Dora & Diego. Later that day, guests will feel like celebrities as they get special VIP viewing access to enjoy Universal’s Superstar Parade – an entertainment experience that features larger-than-life floats, state-of-the-art technology, energetic street performers along with some of today’s most beloved animated characters.
To cap off the evening, Universal’s Cinematic Dining Experience offers a unique way to enjoy Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular. Guests will start off the night with a delicious meal at Lombard’s Seafood Grille, located along the picturesque Universal Studios lagoon. Later that evening, guests will enjoy dessert in an exclusive area at the restaurant’s waterfront boardwalk, where the entire family will share a spectacular view of Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular, featuring some of the best, most inspiring, emotion-filled moments in film history. The show is a tribute to Universal’s 100 years of film-making history. It will highlight some of the most fun, dramatic, awe-inspiring moments from Universal Picture’s most iconic films – shown in crystal-clear clarity on huge waterfall screens within the Universal Studios lagoon. The show will take guests on a journey of epic cinematic moments filled with heroes, horror, laughter, good versus evil and triumph – all against a backdrop of light, sound and special effects.
Universal’s Superstar Character Breakfast is available for guests at the price of $25.99 per adult and $12.99 per child; Universal’s Cinematic Dining Experience is available for $44.99 per adult and $12.99 per child.
