Best Universal Orlando Shops for Movie-Inspired Merchandise

By | June 29, 2017

Universal Orlando is an amazing destination for movie fans, and it’s also a great place to pick up souvenirs from some of your favorite franchises. Here are the best Universal Orlando shops for movie-inspired merchandise.

Film Vault

If you want to pick up some movie-inspired souvenirs, especially from Universal’s classic monster movies or fan favorites such as Jaws and Back to the Future, this is a great stop. Located on a corner in New York across from Transformers: The Ride 3D, you can get apparel, posters, mugs, and more featuring your favorite movies.

Best Universal Orlando Shops for Movie-Inspired MerchandiseShops of the Wizarding World

The shops in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter are some of my favorite in all of Universal Orlando, as there are so many souvenirs to find that bring you straight into the movies. One of my favorites is Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes, with an interior right out of the film and lots of Weasley-brand favorites to purchase, such as nose-biting teacups and ton-tongue toffee. For delicious treats that every Harry Potter fan has always wanted to try, visit Honeyduke’s in Hogsmeade. Here you can find chocolate frogs, Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans, Fizzing Whizbees, and more. For the ultimate souvenir, check out Ollivander’s to choose your own wand.

Terminator 2: 3D Gift Shop

Despite being the gift shop just outside the Terminator 2 attraction in Universal Studios Florida, this shop has a diverse mix of merchandise ranging from comics to movie collectibles. There are lots of different franchises featured here, from Batman to The Walking Dead, so it’s a great spot for film fans to check out some collectibles you may not see in other shops in the park.

Islands of Adventure Trading Company

Need to get all of your souvenirs in one place? The main gift shop near the entrance to Islands of Adventure has much of the most popular merchandise from all the lands around Islands of Adventure, and so you can grab items from the Wizarding World, Seuss Landing, Marvel Super Hero Island, and more all in one place here. It’s a great spot to search for souvenirs from your favorite franchises in one stop.

Williams of Hollywood Prop Shop

The shop sells a number of vintage items, and also has some great souvenirs from Universal films and attractions. Occasionally you’ll see signage from closed attractions or retired props from restaurants or attraction queues in the parks, often featuring favorite films. Notably the cows from Twister… Ride It Out are for sale here.
