As for Despicable Me I think it is a good choice. While HTTYDragon would be fun and exciting I feel as though they have a lot more they can do with Despicable Me. With the second movie coming out in 2013 and spin offs, aka mini movies, being released as extras with the Blu Rays I just feel as though this is more relate-able and exciting to kids and adults. I personally love this movie and so does my family. Although I feel as this will out date itself within several years I feel as though HTTYD would out date itself even quicker. I'm excited to see what they do with this ride, even though Im not so sure about the dance party, but we'll see.
Also after the annoucement, Univeral Orlando put on a flashmob featuring the minions right outside the front gates to Universal Studios.

"What the heck is Despicable Me?"
Never heard of it.
Despicable Me isn't just going to be a case of 'new film' and a new theme into JN is it? "Dance party", if that is an exaggeration, is that similar to the birdie song at the end of JN where we are forced to "dance?"
I thought that this was getting a whole new ride system! I may have read too much in to Dance party though.
As far as those expecting a radical new ride system for Despicable Me, it really isn't possible considering the small size of the Jimmy Neutron building. It pretty much has to be a 4D-film or simulator.
