The lion's share of discussion on TPI threads have been dedicated to the alleged Orlando-market competition between Walt Disney World and Universal Orlando. I have always deferred to the demonstrated better angels -- specifically the June 1990, full page ad that team WDW took out in the Orlando Sentinel welcoming the first Universal park as being good for Central Florida tourism. But when specifically regarding "the race" as it relates to attendance: What is the greater value of measuring individual park attendance verses measuring total resort attendance? If we give weight and validity to the TEA/AECOM report (circa attendance 2014) does that not mean Walt Disney World's total park numbers vs. Universal Orlando's park numbers are 50.1 million guests compared to 15.2 million guests?Tweet
