There are some Twitter accounts that are just on fire all the time — like the fast-food chain Wendy’s and their ability to roast anyone who asks for it (as well as those who don’t). Another one of those sarcastic, hilarious accounts is the Universal Orlando Resort account. The Resort’s Twitter account not only shares things like fun pictures and Park hours and weather reports, but they also love to make fun of their theme park competitor, Walt Disney World, which is only nine miles away from Universal. However, Universal never directly calls out the Most Magical place on Earth, which only makes their tweets that much funnier.
Recently, Guests visiting EPCOT for the International Festival of Arts waited up to 7 hours in line to buy a Figment popcorn bucket. Universal heard about that and tweeted, “Y’all must really love popcorn.” And now, Universal is coming for Disney’s latest project, the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser. The Starcruiser will be a 2-day completely immersive experience, where Guests only leave to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Recently, pictures circulated of the vehicle that will transport Guests to the Park, and it looks like a converted box truck.
When Universal heard about the pictures, they couldn’t help but respond in an absolutely hilarious manner. Universal Orlando Resort tweeted the following:
Get in, folks. We’re goin’ to Universal!

Universal is only the latest to have a little fun with Disney’s new, immersive experience. Guests who had been looking forward to the ultimate Star Wars experience were less than thrilled once pictures and videos started to come out about what would be involved. There was a lot of disappointment in what was seen, and that led to dozens of Guests canceling their stays onboard the Starcruiser. Things got so bad that Disney even deleted a video they released giving more details about what Guests would see and do while on the ship.
The Galactic Starcruiser will launch on March 1 and reservations are completely full for that month. However, there is still availability in April and nearly the entire month of May is open for those who would still like to book. There are several booking packages available for the Galactic Starcruiser, with the cheapest option costing just over $4,800 for two adults.
