The first merchandise featuring the new Universal Studios Florida and Universal Islands of Adventure logos has debuted at Universal Orlando Resort. We found a new plastic popcorn bucket featuring the updated park iconography at a snack stand in The Lost Continent section of Universal Islands of Adventure.
Popcorn Bucket with New Park Logos – $12.29
The plastic bucket is see-through and features a red handle. The new park logos appear on both sides of the bucket.
The updated park iconography was unveiled in March of this year. The resort-wide update introduced new logos for Universal Studios Florida, Universal Islands of Adventure, Universal Volcano Bay, and Universal CityWalk. A new logo for the under-construction Epic Universe, Universal Orlando Resort’s third gate, which is set to open in 2025, was also unveiled.
Notably, the new logos introduced a subtle name change for Universal Islands of Adventure and Universal Volcano Bay, with the word “Universal” losing its possessive nature (the names were previously stylized as “Universal‘s Islands of Adventure and Universal‘s Volcano Bay).
For reference, below are photos of the previous popcorn bucket that featured the former park iconography.
There do not appear to be any changes to the bucket itself. The new container merely replaces the former Universal Studios Florida and Universal Islands of Adventure logos with the new branding.
The bucket costs $12.29, and refills are available for $2.19. Select snack stands even sell the buckets with cotton candy.
We first spotted the new logos in use on a sign at the Universal Volcano Bay bus loop in May. The resort-wide refresh didn’t drastically change the park branding or iconography, instead simply cleaning up and simplifying the former logos.
The new logos were introduced as the Universal Orlando Resort attempts to expand its offerings, with Universal Destinations & Experiences CEO Mark Woodbury saying in September that the resort aims to become “a full-week vacation” destination.
