    Re: Well, Its Oct. 2 and No Signs of Future Announcements or Attraction Construction

    Personally, I wasn't expecting any announcements this soon. If any announcements are made this year I'd expect them not to be until November. Even if there is an announcement this year it still could be a while until construction even starts. The only thing that might push them to rush is if they really do want to have something done for the 60th anniversary. But I don't really think that anything major will open by then. My guess is they will announce something this year, but construction won't start until early 2016.
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

    I would expect at least one announcement at the Tokyo D23, and then they announce the rest later, and begin construction during the off-season....

    Q4 announcements are typically to get the market excited about holiday products. Disney can announce in any quarter and the response would still be the same. I don't think that Disney has enough solid plans in place to make the kind of announcement that would get investors excited. Hopefully we'll see something at D23 Tokyo.

    I was under the impression that Disney would like to announce something for Anaheim in order to steal some of Harry Potter's thunder. When does HP open at USH?

    Then why are many of us more excited about Universal Hollywood's incoming Wizarding World of Harry Potter than we are about DCA's incoming Monsters door coaster
    or
    about Tomrrowland's loooooong over due improvements? The close-to-the-ground, view-blocking (formerly view enhancing) Dumbo rockets & long abandoned, conspicuous Peoplemover track are Disneyland's Yeti.
    (BTW, has George K. gone Yeti on us at WDW? He and Staggs should change jobs, then he should ignore Staggs.)
    Answer: Universal has earned our sincere anticipation by quickly building magnificent things the way Disney used to do.

    Will U. Hollywood's WWoHP open in the summer of 2016? Not sure, but I'll be there with high expectations.

    I have a feeling that mainejeff was being sarcastic...at least that's the way I took it.

    They also TELL YOU ABOUT IT!

    All this secrecy at Disney is frustrating. How are we supposed to get excited about anything if they won't les us in on any of it.

    There are announcements planned for D23 Toyko but NOT for anything state-side at least to my knowledge, it'd sure be a nice surprise though.

    If you want excitement, announcements or new attractions for the next few years it looks like we are going to have to head up the interstate to USH. Transformers was a huge hit and bumped their attendance almost as much as CARSLAND, next year will be the DM attraction which is obviously going to be a huge hit, and then in 2016, POTTER with at least 2 or 3 new attractions. Looks like TDA is going to counter with Thor meet n greets, IronMan exhibits and closing the BlueSky Cellar. Wow, exciting times for DLR fans.
    At least WDW has Seven Dwarfs Mine Train opening next year and the D23 confirmed Avatar for AK and virtually guaranteed Star Wars for DHS. Looks like DLR is back to going years in between new attractions. We could legitimately be looking at 7 years between new attractions if construction for anything doesn't begin until after the 65th anniversary, which looks very possible now. DLR has no answer for what is about to start pounding them from the theme park to the north, and I think they just don't have the money it would take to answer all that Universal is doing and can't figure out what is the best way to counter with the limited funds they have to invest in Anaheim at this point.

    You have some good points, but there are a few issues with other areas - for instance, the Blue Sky Cellars has closed on *several* occasions to facilitate the replacement of the previous exhibit with a new one. I personally view that as a positive, as if they're replacing the contents with something new there's a very strong chance it'll be for a larger project at one or the other of the parks.

    You also are missing the very strongly rumored "Monstropolis" plans (door coaster etc.) for the Hollywood area, not to mention the rumors of a redo of Tomorrowland that range from minor through complete rebuilds of significant portions of the area.

    I would highly doubt that Disney's going to sit by while their remaining Stateside bright spot gets hit the way Florida did. They may be forced into playing a longer game than Uni is right now, but I'm relatively certain that the pattern in FL will *not* be playing out here (i.e.: "Wow, Transformers? Well, we have a new bathroom that's nicely themed..."). If Uni can carve off a large enough block of locals, Disney will HAVE to respond in some form.

    This is said as someone increasingly in Uni's corner with their park of late. I'm deeply enjoying what USH has done and am positively drooling with anticipation for not just WWOHP or Despicable Me but for the remainder of the Vision Plan yet to be fleshed out. I figure Disney's going to hold off as long as possible to let the current rush for Potter play out to give whatever Disney puts in a relatively clear playing field for launch, then announce whatever West Coast "Potter Killer" they have in mind to keep the locals on the hook.
    Credibility is to be sought for. Credulity is not. Sadly the latter is our normal human state.
