Q: Is there a documentary on Universal Orlando Resort like there was for Disney World?

There’s been a number of documentaries made about Disney World, including an episode of Modern Marvels, and I was just wondering if there was any similar films made about the Universal Studios theme parks? And if so, if it was possible to watch them online. Thanks!

I don’t know why no one is interested in making one! But no, there is nothing. I’ve been looking for years. Perhaps with the popularity of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter someone will decide it is worth it.

Speaking of Harry Potter, Universal Orlando did produce a number of “behind the scenes” and “making of” videos as part of the park’s promotion.  Check them out on Universal’s Harry Potter news site.

Also, Ellen DeGeneres tapes a couple episodes each year. You might be able to find video online. Here’s a little more information: http://www.examiner.com/theme-parks-in-o…

Another fun alternative is Universal Orlando’s own vacation planning videos.  There are some 10 videos on Universal Orlando’s website, and they also have another site called Script your Trip.


Update: I was asked on Facebook where the Disney documentaries can be found.  Here’s my answer: They show them on the Travel Channel about once every two or three months.  Some are “behind the scenes,” and there are a few shows hosted by Samantha Brown.  The Modern Marvel’s special is aired on the History Channel about once a quarter.  You’ll just have to scan your listings.  Or, if you have a DVR, set up a Wish List for Disney World.

There was one. I watched it 8 or so years ago. I believe it mainly focused on IOA. I remember them saying that Suess Landing was touched up with paint every night. There was a segment that showed how the dinosaurs were made for Jurrasic Park. It showed people working in the kitchens. I’ve been searching for it on YouTube and other places but cannot find it.
