It looks like the Mouse is losing some of his ground in Orlando. 

Universal’s Islands of Adventure placed first in the 2015 Traveler’s Choice awards for amusement parks and water parks worldwide, beating out 24 other attractions, including eight from Orlando.

The list, put together annually by TripAdvisor, puts SeaWorld’s Discovery Cove in the No. 2 spot and Walt Disney World Resort's Magic Kingdom at No. 3.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios came in at No. 5, Universal Studios Florida came in at No. 6, Disney’s Animal Kingdom at No. 11, SeaWorld Orlando at No. 15 and Epcot at No. 16.

The awards are based on reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor users.
