Photos from the Universal Studios Florida theme park at Universal Orlando.

Universal Studios Florida - 1991

Universal Studios Florida officially opened to the general public on June 7, 1990.

The theme park was originally designed as both a working movie studio and major theme park with attractions designed around hit movies.  Production of TV shows and movies has diminished inside the Florida theme park, but over the years the attractions have continued to be bigger and more technologically advanced.

Universal Studios Florida - 2000

Guests arriving at Universal Studios Florida are greeted with a view of the classic Universal Studios globe, a logo of the movie studio.  The spinning Earth rotates slowly, giving guests a chance to wait and pose in front of their favorite countries.  After passing the Universal globe, guests walk under a massive Universal arch that serves as the official entrance into the theme park.

Universal Studios Florida is designed around a central lagoon, allowing the guests an easy path around the park.  Most of the attractions are designed to look like soundstages on the exterior.  Once guests enter the soundstage, they'll quickly find themselves on a heavily themed "hot set" and in the middle of the action.
