Orlando, Florida, has been named the theme park capital of the world on multiple occasions. All it takes is a leisurely drive down I-4 to see this.
Not only is Orlando, Florida, home to Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld Orlando, and Legoland, but it’s also home to a ton of smaller theme parks.
That being said, despite Central Florida’s vast array of theme parks, Walt Disney World is undeniably the ruler of them all.
Not only that, but the Mouse has also earned a reputation for being one of the most family-friendly vacation destinations in the entire world, making every square mile appropriate for every age.
Being a family-friendly destination, Walt Disney World Resort has also earned the reputation of being one of the safest theme park areas around…However, a recent injury report may prove otherwise.
Recently, an injury report for this year’s second quarter was released. Between April and June of this year, SeaWorld Orlando reported two injuries, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay reported one, Universal Orlando Resort reported two, and Legoland Orlando reported none. All in all, that’s five different injuries between the four theme parks.
Walt Disney World, however, reported six different injuries, one of which may have possibly resulted in the death of one Guest.
This means that Walt Disney World reported more injuries than all of its competitors combined this past quarter.
While this doesn’t mean that Walt Disney World is inherently more dangerous than its competitors, it can’t be denied that more Guest injuries were reported on this past quarter.
