How to Make a Mega Movie Deal was an attraction formerly located at Universal Studios Florida.[1] It opened in 1991, a year after the park opened,[2] and was closed in 1993 to make way for AT&T at the Movies. It was not much of a major attraction, though it was themed to Universal's and the rest of Hollywood's movie industry, and was similar to the park's Lucy: A Tribute attraction, also in the Hollywood area.

The attraction[edit]

Synopsis[edit]

In 1990, Universal Studios Florida released this official synopsis:

Summary[edit]

The exterior facade of the building was themed to The Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles, California and The Garden of Allah in Hollywood. The attraction was a small exhibit themed to the movie industry, and included many exhibits, games, and videos about the industry. It also featured a small storyline of a man progressing from a mail room employee to a studio executive in Hollywood.[3]

History[edit]

The attraction opened a year after the park, in Spring, 1991. It was closed in 1993, and was replaced by AT&T at the Movies, which opened in 1998 and was also removed, in 2001. The inside of the building was then turned into Cafe La Bamba, a seasonal restaurant, while the former entrance was converted into a Universal Express pass distribution area for the Woody Woodpecker's Kidzone area attractions, which was closed in 2007.
