Universal Hilariously Responds To Lady Jumping Off EPCOT Boat for Cucumber

As Father’s Day came to an end last night, a Walt Disney World guest went viral… for all the wrong reasons. A Disney guest decided it was a good idea to jump off EPCOT’s Living with the Land attraction boat to steal a cucumber. A fellow boat rider videoed the episode, placed it on social media, and it’s now going viral. Walt Disney World’s neighboring competitor, Universal Orlando Resort, took to social media to hilariously respond.

So, of course, Universal Orlando Resort seeing this trending post takes to social media. Universal is known for having quick witted, humorous tweets. Short and simple, in the midst of the cucumber news, Universal Orlando Resort tweeted: “A churro, yes, but a cucumber?!”

Churros at Universal are equivalent to Walt Disney World’s most popular snacks… like a Mickey Ice Cream Bar or Dole Whip.

And yes, we must admit, Universal’s churros are delicious! Worthy of jumping off an EPCOT attraction for? No… but still good.
