    But a lot of people (especially regional audiences) go for rides--and Transformers is based off a stronger franchise, a more advanced technology, and caters to a more thrill-based audience. Not saying Carsland won't be better, just saying it's good competition. A re-themed shopping district is also harder to market than a thrilling, state of the art ride based on a relevant franchise.

    I read it in an article, but I don't remember where. It was detailing the reasons for why Disney's Maryland Resort was cancelled. The combined investments of the cruiseline, China in Hong Kong and Shanghai, WDW's Avatar and Fantasyland, DCA's makeover, and especially Aulani (with its timeshare maintenance fee fiasco) has created a situation where they just want to "wait and see" what happens. Allow them some time to see profits before embarking on new projects. This made the Maryland Resort project less attractive.

    Who knows if Universal Studios Hollywood's Wizarding World will be a stiff competitor. They have 3 or 4 years to wait it out. By then, it might be easier to import Avatar if necessary.

    Except a single ride won't keep you occupied for very long. So the problem is transformers isn't enough to make USH a destination to most worth revisiting frequently.. and why 'the entire package' is important. Disney is trying to break the 'hit ToT and leave DCA for DL..' syndrome which is why they are building something far greater then a single ride.

    This is why USH needs a HP land and not just FJ in a soundstage. Transformers alas.. will simply be another ride in a build box at USH.
