The Walt Disney Company has spread the magic worldwide throughout the years, with theme parks not only in the United States but also in France, China, and Japan. Recently, we have seen Disney’s top competitor looking at expanding their theme parks internationally as well.

Comcast Corporation, Universal’s parent company, confirmed the purchase of 500 acres near Bedford (around 45 miles outside of London). A new website https://universalukproject.co.uk/, dedicated to this expansion, illustrates Universal’s dedication to expanding.

New Website

The website is very basic and focuses on purchasing the land, reminding readers that this process is in the beginning stages.

“Whilst our parent company, Comcast Corporation, has purchased a parcel of land near Bedford, we are only at the beginning of our feasibility study as part of our evaluation of potential sites. It may be many months before we decide whether this potential project will proceed.”

The website also has the heading “exploring a potential park and resort experience,” reminding fans that this dream has a long way to go before we see it.

Although this is at the beginning stages, seeing Universal Destinations & Experiences taking steps such as creating a website for the potential park gives us great hope for the future.

Universal is in the middle of building a third park at Universal Orland Resort. Epic Universe is scheduled to be open in the summer of 2025. This vast expansion will bring the highly anticipated Super Nintendo World to Florida.

We love that Universal continues to look at ways to bring the magic to more people worldwide. With more theme parks worldwide to visit, fans get to be a part of the magic no matter where they live or travel.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
