Heartwarming / Universal Studios

  • Any little kid that's overwhelmed with joy when they first meet the likes of Spider-Man,SpongeBob SquarePants, or a Minion. Or going through "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" or the Despicable Me ride.
  • The ending of E.T. Adventure, with the titular character wishing you farewell (and actually saying your name!)
    • If you're walking through the exit hallways at the right time you'll hear "I'll be right here..."
  • There's also the ending of Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, where Gru saves the girls, reveals to the trio his 1st Anniversary gift to them and happily declares how much he loves them.
  • The ending to Back to the Future: The Ride, while quick, somewhat qualifies too, just because of Doc's final words to the riders:
    Doc Brown (gleefully): You did it! Not only did you catch Biff and save the universe, but you proved that my latest invention is a success! Go forth time travelers, and remember the future is what you make it!
  • The Universal 100th show, which is essentially a giant and lovingly-crafted homage to the company's legacy of films. It's especially moving to any big film fan or historian.
  • The fact that the Studio Tour queue and its starting area contains tribute posters to some of their oldest films, like The Phantom of the Opera (1925) and All Quiet on the Western Front, plus featuring the latter in a homage video to all their Best Picture winners, shows that Universal still loves them very much, and hasn't forgotten about them in favor of more popular films like Despicable Me and Jurassic Park.
