MINIONS FROM DESPICABLE ME
The minions are henchmen of the evil mastermind Gru in the hit movie series DESPICABLE ME.

Although similar in their physical appearance, they do have unique features to tell them apart. They even have their very own minion language.

SHREK
A large, green, physically intimidating ogre. Although his background is something of a mystery, it is assumed that despite these traits, Shrek has always been an ogre of the non-hostile kind as he loves peace and solitude and lives in a swamp. After rescuing the damsel-in-distress, Shrek fell madly in love with his soul mate, Princess Fiona.

PRINCESS FIONA
Street smart, independent and delightfully engaging, this lovable princess from the Shrek® series interacts with resort guests alongside Shrek.

FRANKENSTEIN
One of the most famous characters in history, the creature is a sensitive, emotional being, which is depicted as a mute. The creature discovers feelings through childlike interactions. The Monster is a symbol of a lumbering brute, with arms outstretched.

WOODY WOODPECKER®
He’s crazy, colourful, and more that just off the wall. He’s Woody Woodpecker, the lovable bird with a heart of gold and a one-in-a-million laugh.
