Alright Universal, we see you! Walt Disney World Resort’s neighboring Central Florida Theme Park is throwing shade Walt Disney World’s way today as Disney’s website is struggling.

We previously shared the news that two special offers landed today for Walt Disney World Resort Guests. Guests can currently save up to $500 on a 5-night stay at select hotels. Another promotion allows for Annual Passholders and Florida Residents to save up to 25% on select Resorts. So, of course, Disney fans are jumping at the discounts which have been a challenge for the Disney website.

The Disney website currently has a long wait for Guests to access the promotions. Disney’s solution is putting people into an online virtual queue. The image you’ll see while you wait is of Space Mountain along with the words “We’re Almost in Orbit” as shown below:

So, what does this mean? Universal Orlando Resort is going to take the opportunity to make fun of the Disney giant! While only major Disney fans may catch the jab with “We’re Almost in Orbit”, there are some comments that are truly the best part of Orlando’s tweet!

Universal Orlando Resort (@UniversalORL) took to Twitter to throw a little shade Disney’s way with, “We’re Almost in Orbit” along with a photo of their newest roller coaster, Jurassic World VelociCoaster at Universal’s Island of Adventure:

So, let the comments begin! One person asked the question, “Wait 45 minutes to spend 3x on a hotel room or wait 45 minutes for Velocicoaster”, followed by someone else with the meme, “It’s True Tho”:

Another comment came to Disney’s defense with, “Hey at least they’re offering discounts (Looking at you annual pass hotel discounts for March)”:

This gif, saying, “Oh my God, was that shade?” seems rather suitable:

And even a Captain America gif was used with, “I understood that reference”:

Universal Orlando Resort throwing shade Disney’s way is nothing new and seems to happen quite regularly actually. While we will always be Disney fans first and foremost, we must say we are rather entertained when whoever runs Universal’s Twitter page throws a little humorous punch Disney’s way.

Would you have caught the “We’re Almost in Orbit” jab at Disney? Let us know in the comments!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
