Universal Orlando announces Universal's Epic Universe

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

From the release today:

Epic. It’s a word that gets tossed around a lot in today’s day and age, though not one we use loosely. When we label something as epic, we want that experience to live up to the promise that the word makes. Which is why today we are elated to announce the addition of our fourth theme park, Universal’s Epic Universe, an experience genuinely worthy of its bold moniker.

Universal’s Epic Universe will offer an entirely new level of experiences that will forever redefine theme park entertainment. Guests will venture beyond their wildest imagination, traveling into beloved stories and through vibrant lands on adventures where the journey is as astounding as the destination. The new location will feature a theme park, an entertainment center, hotels, shops, restaurants and more. Ultimately, this expansion will create more space and freedom to let loose and create lasting memories with the people you love.

I would assume that they're gonna level up their transportation department. They've gotta if it's going to work.

I sure hope so. I was surprised to see their bus system is operated by Mears and not something they ran in house. I am curious if they will just expand that or take ownership once Epic opens.

Disney trusted Mears for a long time to run the airport shuttles. I think they're still doing the cruise line buses.

Just wanted to confirm, Universal’s internal buses are currently run by Mears.

Documents filed May 29 with Orange County by Universal City Development Partners Ltd., a subsidiary of Universal Orlando Resort, show the original plan to include 700 acres in the planned development has now expanded to over 2,000 acres. After a review, the Orange County Development Review Committee approved the plan on June 7, according to Fast Track online services.

The plans call for change of use to accommodate whatever they intend to develop around the future theme park opening next year. That’s because the properties are all part of a county-sanctioned Major Economic Development Project (MEDP) called Shingle Creek Transit & Utility Community Development District.
