While there are a ton of great shopping experiences to be had at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, few compare to the newest addition to the Park.

The Summer Tribute Store, which is located in the New York area of Universal Studios Orlando, offers some incredible merchandise centered around some truly iconic classic franchises. The store features items from Jaws, Back to the Future, E.T., and more. The outside of the Tribute Store features a façade resembling an old movie theater, complete with a flashing marquee.

Throughout the store, Guests can see dozens of easter eggs scatted throughout, referencing all of these classic Universal movies. Multiple props, references, and movie replicas can be found in the store. Unfortunately, it appears that one prop in the store has gone missing, with allegations against a random Guest stealing it popping up.

See the tweet below from Spectromattic ’25 (@SpectroMattic):


As you can see, a Wolfman figure was once set on this shelf but is now missing. This may not be the most egregious example of a Guest damaging an attraction or building, but you can still see the spots on the shelf where the figure was glued.

Any action such as this is strictly prohibited and against Universal Studios rules and policies for Guests. More on Universal Studios Tribute Store.
