    Actually, I believe World of Color was a separate budget... other than that, though, I have no idea.

    I think they used up more than half of the fund already. Maybe 3/4 of it.

    1.2 billion is a more accurate estimate. I had heard that there would be 2-300 million left over for phase two.

    ^ Yup. 1.1 billion has been announced.

    Also, not all the budget is being spent right now. The 1.1 billion includes money that will be set aside for the rumored Phase 2, which would most likely be starting in 2014 or 2015.

    And remember, this budget has to actually stretch farther than if they were building from scratch, Disney has to pay to tear down things, THEN build back up. The other parks listed didn't have to pay to remove buildings and infrastructure before they could even being really building. Plus they are limited in the areas they can work and even the times.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    $1.2 or $1.1?

    Also, you forgot Cars Land, CCT, BVS and the entrance, RCT, and as mycroft mentioned, destruction as well.

    Re: DCA'S $1.5 Billion: How Far are we into it?

    1.1 billion sounds right. Remember it still is a lot, and it is easier to tear down things then to build them up. But still harder than having a parking lot. But Carsland has that. I think that a lot of the money has already been spent, or is about to be spent. But i do believe that what is in the "reserves" so to speak is nothing but 500 million which is surely not enough to build the Phase 2 expansion that a lot of people keep looking forward to. Also, remember that if the park does well enough more money, millions of it, will be funneled into DCA. But yes, i agree with asianbma when he said that they have spent about 3/4 of it. That sounds right. If not, they are about to.
