Comcast ‘Looking at' Fourth Theme Park for Universal Orlando Resort

Comcast executives said they are looking at planning a fourth theme park for Universal Orlando, hoping to ramp up the resort from a two- to three-day destination to a weeklong destination.

During Thursday's earnings call, an analyst asked about the company filing a patent application last month for the name Fantastic Worlds, wondering if that indicated plans for another theme park for the resort.

"In terms of a new [theme park] in Florida, we are looking at it," NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke said, adding that the company filed a name registration.

Another theme park would "have the advantage of turning Florida from a two- or three-day destination to potentially a weeklong destination," Burke said.

Comcast owns NBCUniversal, the parent company of this station.
