The Extra-Terrestrial (1982), and Jurassic Park (1993), all of which were directed by Steven Spielberg–achieved box office records, each becoming the highest-grossing film at the time.

The Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida is a theme park, film studio, and television Video production facility that was opened on June 7, 1990. Universal Studios direct competition is Walt Disney World. These two corporations are in constant competition with one another. When Universal Studios Florida first opened, there were minor technical setbacks in rides such as Kongfrontation and Jaws. Another problem was found in the wait time to use the rides. These problems were fixed as soon as possible and lead to Universal’s wish to update the park. Steven Spielberg, who assisted in the original making of the theme park, returned to help expand it, adding Universal’s Islands of Adventure in 1999.

Universal Orlando Resort, formerly known as Universal Studios Escape, is considered a resort with plenty of accommodated hotels, rides and attractions. It eventually turned into a complete resort with the addition of the upscale hotel, Portofino Bay Hotel. A second theme park called, Islands of Adventure, was also built. This area included the nighttime entertainment district, CityWalk. The Hard Rock Hotel was added in 2000, followed by the Royal Pacific Hotel in 2002,and a fourth hotel opening in 2014 called the Cabana Bay Beach Resort.[21]
