We went bananas to celebrate Universal Orlando's birthday

June 8, 2016, 6:36 AM · Yesterday was Universal Orlando's 26th anniversary, and we wished the resort a happy birthday with a tweet that included a shout-out to the imminent return of King Kong.

Universal Orlando's social media team is killing it these days, quickly responding to fans who tag the resort — and often doing so with a strong helping of the funny snark that's long defined much inside the Universal theme parks.

At that point, some Theme Park Insider followers jumped in.

And with that, Universal's Twitter account took a bow.

The lesson? If you're not following @UniversalORL on Twitter (and @ThemePark, too) — you should be!

June 8, 2016 at 8:31 AM · 30 yrs ago had you told me there would be another theme park in Orlando that I would enjoy as much as WDW today, I would have called you crazy. In the past few yrs my wife & I have thoroughly enjoyed USO, especially the WWoHP. USO offers a different experience than WDW, not to mention competition, which only forces WDW to up their game. In the end, we the theme park fans are the real winners.
I never have understood the folks that prefer one over the other to the point of posting negative comments. WDW will always hold a special place in my heart, however that does not prevent me from appreciating USO or Sea world. After all, variety truly is the spice of life.

Makes a difference to engage fans in a cool way like they do.
