When Universal Orlando opened the AMAZING Volcano Bay, it touted the resort’s expansion as its third theme park.
And they were right! Volcano Bay is a theme park – the third park on Universal’s world-class resort property.
And based on Universal’s claim, their friends down the road are now successfully operating seven theme parks on the Walt Disney World property. Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach and Disney Springs.
My son and I experienced the virtual reality experience at The Void – Star Wars Secrets of the Empire. As I exited what is the second most amazing theme park attraction I have ever experienced (‘Flight of Passage’ remains on top of the list), I came to the conclusion that Disney Springs is, in fact, a theme park.
It has attractions. It has themed environments. It has live entertainment and unique dining experiences. It has drawn millions of guests every year.
Universal set the standard when it called Volcano Bay a theme park. With the broadening of the definition, Disney Springs is absolutely a theme park. And it’s one of the best on the planet.
