New Universal Studios Florida Store sells props from the park and beyond

Just in time for holiday shopping, a new store has opened at Universal Studios Florida selling props, signs and more from the park.

Williams of Hollywood

Williams of Hollywood, home of the former magic shop next to Mel’s Drive-In, recently reopened to sell these one-of-a-kind items. By the way, the namesake of the store is a nod to Tom Williams, CEO of Universal Parks and Resorts worldwide.

In case you’ve never noticed it, just outside the shop is a small tribute to architect Rovert V. Derrah, who helped shape the look of Hollywood, California. His most famous contribution was the Crossroads of the World, which oddly enough, has been recreated at Disney’s Hollywood Studios down the road.

The shop is not completely dedicated to authentic Universal Studios park props, but rather an eclectic mix of items thrown together from antiques to costumes and more.

All of the items in the store are for sale, except this sign from the recently closed Twister attraction. I was told the electrical wiring may not be up to code for commercial purchase, so that is being investigated. However, expect this item to have a for sale sticker on it soon.

There were several props from Twister scattered around the store, including this cow which might not fit in the overhead compartment on your flight back from Orlando International.

Besides, what’s $1,200 anyway? It’s authentic!

There are actually quite a few props from Halloween Horror Nights either seen in gift shops or in the houses.

Lots of tributes to Universal classic monsters as well that have been seen at the Horror Makeup Show just across the street from Williams of Hollywood.

A huge leap in the right direction for Universal Studios Florida to have a collection of their items for sale. Why not have them go to a collector’s home instead of sitting around collecting dust? I think it’s a great idea.
