Earlier this month Universal Studios Florida opened a new store called The Film Vault which offers products featuring a wide assortment of fan favorite Universal properties including Ghostbusters, King Kong, The Godfather, Back to the Future and more. The store is located across from Transformers: The Ride 3-D and replaces the Delancey Street Preview Center, where guests were used as test audiences for upcoming television shows. The preview center has been moved closer to the front of the park near Schwab’s Pharmacy.

The Film Vault  does offer some generic “Universal Studios” items, but the vast majority of the products are cherry picked from other attraction gift shops or exclusive to the store.

These retro-style BTTF action figures are incredible.

Guests who miss the Ghostbusters Spooktacular show at USF (we’re looking in your direction Seth Kubersky) will be very happy to see how many Ghostbuster items are available.

“You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could, and before you even knew what you had, you patented it, and packaged it, and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now” – Ian Malcolm, Jurassic Park (photo by Brandon Glover)

 

Jaws, Psycho, The Godfather, American Graffiti, Blues Brothers and Animal House products.  Last year I wrote an article on the Top 6 Gift Shops at Universal Studios Florida and I think it’s time to revisit that list soon because between Diagon Alley‘s Borgin and Burkes and The Film Vault, there looks to be some new sheriffs in town. Filled with awesome properties like Back to the Future, Ghostbusters and the Fast & the Furious, The Film Vault is the store I have wanted to see in Universal for years and it is finally here.

“It’s not like my mother is a maniac or a raving thing. She just goes a little mad sometimes. We all go a little mad sometimes. Haven’t you?” – Norman Bates, Psycho (photo by Brandon Glover)
