Movies to Watch Before Your Universal Studios Orlando Vacation

Planning a trip to Universal Studio is more than preparing your budget, making your travel arrangements and getting your home ready for your departure. There’s another, MUCH more fun way to prepare for your trip.

Watching all the movies and television shows so many of the attractions and shows are based on is a great way to get your kiddos, and yourself, excited for your trip. You also have to remember, some of the movies may be a little too obscure for our younger generation. It might be fun to introduce your children to a new set of movies.

Check out this list of movies and television shows to get you started.
