I'm not Disney blind, and I visited Universal Studios in May 2016. Yes, it is possible to like both - though comparisons are inevitable and most people end up comparing them and coming dwon in favor of one or the other. Water parks have been around for a long time. The first thing that grabbed me when I saw Typhoon Lagoon was that it did not look like a conventional water park. It did what Disney was great at: It hid the mechanism. Now, some three decades later - that's a long time - Universal has come along with their own water park, where the mechanism is in plain site and the theming is hardly original. So yeah, on the surface - I'm not exactly wowed. Will the slides be more fun? Certainly, many of TL's slides are pretty dull. Will it have some newer and cooler features? Well, certainly it's built and designed decades later. As for being able to like both Universal and DW... Well, this is a WDW forum so yes - I prefer WDW. Universal has got a long way to go to catch up with WDW, if it can at all.
