Now appearing daily at the Nickelodeon Suites Resort in Orlando are the heroes in a half shell, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Guests staying at Nick Hotel have daily opportunities to meet Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael, fresh from of their upcoming revival on Nickelodeon.
The meet-and-greet location is in the hotel’s “Mall,” also home to a food court, arcade, 4-D movie theater, and the Nick Studio venue.

The nearby shop sells a few TMNT items, including T-shirts, mugs, wristbands, and – most importantly – red, orange, blue, and purple eye masks, a popular item among kids eager to meet the fearsome foursome (and a bargain too, at less than $3).
Even at check-in, the excitement surrounding the Turtles’ arrival to the hotel is obvious, with staff wearing TMNT gear:
As with the many character photo opportunities available at Nick Hotel, long lines can form quickly so it’s recommended guests find out in advance when the Ninja Turtles will be appearing and show up 10-15 minutes early. Though, to the credit of the hotel’s staff, the line does move very quickly, but without ever rushing anyone through the experience.
Those looking for more time with the Turtles can dine at Antonio’s Pizza-Rama, where on select nights all four of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will appear and teach a few ninja moves.
The Turtles’ new half-hour CG animated series called “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” will debut on Nickelodeon in Fall 2012.
