In case you missed it, Walt Disney World was in a bit of a pickle yesterday when guests on the “Living With the Land” boat ride in EPCOT, recorded other guests leaving the ride vehicle to grab a cucumber.

This led to many comments on Twitter.  Now Universal Orlando has chosen to throw in with the comments.

It started last night when they questioned the choice of grabbing a cucumber over other items like a churro.


Then today they made another cucumber comment when discussing their park hours:

Of course the comments are gold:


On the Disney end of it many people are talking about how the people who behaved badly were seemingly not even questioned after they left the attraction.

WDWNT is reporting that they talked to another person who was on the boat vehicles and they were behaving terribly several times, were throwing sand, got out of the boat, etc. and they were only told to keep their arms in the vehicle once.

According to Meghan Gorny, “We were in the boat and witnessed everything. The guy that got out to ‘help’ her had jumped out of the boat several times during the ride, starting by the farm scene. The entire group was also leaning out of the boat and grabbing sand and throwing it,  including holding the small child with them out of the boat so that she could grab sand.”

Disney might not be saying anything about it, but Universal Orlando is sure using it as an opportunity to troll them on Twitter.
