Have you ever wondered if there would ever come a time that Disney would no longer exist? With 12 Parks located around the world, a demise such as this would be massive, but it seems that Universal has an idea as to when this will happen…

After Disney, one of the biggest and most dominating theme park moguls would easily be Universal. Universal also has Parks located globally, and with the fantastic theming and amazing technology continuously being produced by the Park, it is a definite contender when pitting another theme park to Disney.

Below is a list of all the Universal Parks:

  • Universal Studios Hollywood
  • Universal Studios Florida
  • Islands of Adventure
  • Epic Universe – upcoming
  • Universal Studios Japan
  • Universal Studios Singapore
  • Universal Beijing Resort

Universal Orlando Resort is arguably the most popular Resort with the most Parks and more coming. Also being located in Orlando, it is privy to a ton of tourism. That being said, being minutes from Disney World has also created a fun rivalry between the Parks, and Universal’s Twitter account continuously capitalizes on it!

We have seen Universal poke fun at Disney all of the time, but now, they have predicted the end of times for Mickey Mouse! Brayden (@SirBrayden), creator of Mickey Views, posed the question, “I seriously wonder if Disney Parks will exist in the future.” To which Universal (@UniversalOrl) replied:

Not after the Great Theme Park Wars of 2067…

We’ve already said too much.

The hilarious comment is, of course, just a joke, but the fact that Universal has predicted when Disney will falter in 2067 is one of their deepest jabs yet!

Universal had received some of their own medicine more recently when the Back to the Future Twitter account clapped back at them, calling E.T. Adventure the best ride.
