Universal Studios Holidays
your ultimate fantasy world
Let your imagination run free, and give the kids a break they'll long remember, by choosing a Universal Studios Orlando holiday from The Co-operative Travel.
Your ultimate fantasy world, Universal Studios Orlando has been a major hit with British holidaymakers for more than a generation, expanding on the original 'dream factory' formula of the original Universal Studios, which were established in Hollywood just a few years short of a century ago.
The studios began charging tourists 25 cents (about 20p) to watch as films were being made, giving them a chance of a glimpse - however distant - of stars such as Rudolf Valentino and Lon Chaney, and this idea later developed into the theme park concept which was pioneered here and exported around the world - but which Universal Studios still does best.
Everything about a Universal Studios holiday reflects the Hollywood philosophy of 'big is best'. The Islands of Adventure theme park has been jointly devised by Steven Spielberg and the best thrill ride designers in the world to ensure you live, breathe and feel every adventure, whether it's from the surreal world of Dr Seuss' The Cat In The Hat, or The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man.
And coming to Universal Studios Orlando in 2010 is an attraction which is sure to generate massive interest from British visitors. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter promises to recreate the visual settings first imagined by J K Rowling, and brought to life in amazing detail in the film adaptations.

Universal Studios Orlando's three resort hotels, just a stone's throw from the Studios and Islands of Adventure, are each built around a different theme, but all share comfortingly high standards of luxury, and will immerse you in the party mood.
Nightly entertainment shows also take their cue from the hottest venues around the globe. You can take centre-stage at the Citywalk Rising Star karaoke club, while the groove nightclub is equipped with the latest special effects, and sound systems pumping out a wide range of music from the 70s to today, and each night following a different theme.
Put yourself in a starring role on a Universal Studios Orlando holiday from The Co-operative Travel. For many years the place where dreams were made, it's still making them come true almost a century on.
