Disney World is following in the footsteps of the competition.

Disney World Resort is known as “The Most Magical Place on Earth” and sees thousands of Guests daily, but competition is brewing down in Orlando as Universal Orlando Resort has made a major step toward catching Walt Disney World.

Universal Orlando and Disney World have several things in common, and they are easily the two most prominent theme park Resort destinations in the world.

Disney World is home to four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and Dinsey’s Hollywood Studios. Disney also has two water parks, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. At Universal Orlando, there are two theme parks called Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure. Universal also includes a water park for Guests to cool off from the Florida heat called Volcano Bay, and is in the midst of building Epic Universe, an all-new theme park set to open in 2025.

Universal has been competing with Disney by building this third theme park and, recently, Universal changed their logos, making them in a 3D style, as opposed to the 2D look of the old logos. While they certainly are more modern than the classic logos.

Alicia Stella tweeted:

Universal Orlando’s press site has added the four new logos for the resort. But, they have not yet released the new Epic Universe logo publicly on any channels. If anyone happens to see it used on an official Universal site, please let me know!

Now, Disney World is following in Universal’s footsteps, changing its logo from the 50th anniversary to a more 3-dimensional design.

this new logo is.. something

Universal and Disney have been known to try and get a leg up on each other. Recently, Universal tweeted about not needing reservations where they are going, throwing shade at Disney World requiring reservations.

What do you think of these new logos?
