Live and play with your favourite Dreamworks characters in Macau
By Adrian Eugene Seet
You got to move it, move it. Meet the cast of Madagascar, How to Train Your Dragon, Shrek and Kung Fu Panda at Cotai Strip in Macau.
The Dreamworks Experience offers themed activities as well as themed family suites at the Sheraton Macao.
Shrekfast with the Gang
Have breakfast with the characters from Dreamworks at the Shrekfast with the Dreamworks Gang character breakfast.
The gang from Madagascar, How to Train Your Dragon, Shrek and Kung Fu Panda will enliven your morning. You’ll get to meet Alex, the penguins and King Julien from Madagascar; Hiccup and Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon; Puss in Boots, Shrek and Princess Fiona from Shrek; and even Po from Kung Fu Panda.
Shrekfast with the DreamWorks Gang is offered to guests staying at the Sheraton Macao Hotel at HK$100 per person, subject to 10 per cent service charge and 5 per cent government tax. There are two sessions to choose from: 8am to 9.30am for the early birds or 10am to 11.30am if you prefer to sleep in a little longer.
You will have to book early as the breakfast sessions are very popular.
Fun & Filling
Held at the Tian Shan Ballroom on level four of the Sheraton Macao Hotel, the breakfast offers fun menu items.
We thought the Kung Fu Panda baos were absolutely adorable. The buffet spread offers a wide choice of food.
While you enjoy breakfast, the Dreamworks characters will walk around the ballroom to interact with you, so that you can take photos with them, hug them and simply adore them.
