    New Potter Rumor?

    New to me at least. We've all heard what may be removed to make way for Potter: Curious George, The Gibson, Waterworld....but a couple days ago i heard that Shrek is also on the chopping block when Potter starts construction next year. Does anyone know if that's true? That would a substantial piece of land if it were. i just didn't think they'd clear out that much of the park..but then it is Potter

    Supposedly about 50% of the upper lot is going to be under construction next year. (including DM)

    It's true. Wizarding World will literally fill nearly 1/3 of all USH (pending further USH expansion).

    I wouldn't be surprised if more than 50% of the upper lot is under construction next year. There are whispers going around that Springfield MIGHT come to USH in 2014. This all depends on how well it goes in Orlando.


    Exciting times for this small park and for Universal theme parks in general.

    Re: New Potter Rumor?

    This may be a dumb question, but how sure are we on Waterworld? Wouldn't Shrek/George/Gibson cover enough land? This may just be wishful thinking on my part, but is there still a chance we keep the Epic Sea War Spectacular for now?
    Disneyland Wooooh!

    Makes sense that they would take out Shrek. Even though its a 3D experience, they never bothered to update the bldg to support the glasses. They have no way of washing them on site. The Shrek employees have to cart the glasses over to T2 to wash them. it sounds like more hassle than its worth. T2 already has a glasses room so DM is taken care of.

    WW has had a good, long run, but its time for some new blood. Right now, nothing is officially confirmed until they start construction...However, if you look at an overhead of the park and look at the Shrek/George/Gibson area, there's no way they can fit Potter into the area without taking out WW as well. Fans, who are desperately hoping against WW being removed, say that they'll have Potter move backwards into the Tram garage area...that's not happening. There is a substantial hill right there (Behind the Gibson) and they aren't gong to spend the time to smooth it out. (Even if they did there would be a perpetual down grade...and that's not happening. The whole right side of the park is gong to be construction walled up by this time next year. You should def see Waterworld while you still have the chance.

    Like everyone else said, it's true. I was never a big fan of Shrek.

    Re: New Potter Rumor?

    If this all happens there would be nothing on the Upper Lot besides Animal Planet Show, Tram, and The Simpsons Ride. So the park would be half of what it is already. Why Go? Entrance to Lower Lot possible? Hmm makes me wonder....especially since the price.

    Totally agreed with you on this one.

    This is why I am not planning on renewing my pass until Harry Potter open up. It's going to look hideous like when DCA was under construction couple of years ago for World of Color, Little Mermaid and Cars Land.

    I agree that is what I am thinking it was a eyesore to look at.

    Also I am beginning to think will WWoHP be enough to replace all of those attractions?
    We lose Shrek, Waterworld, and Curios George Play Area what besides the one attraction already announced should we expect?

    Re: New Potter Rumor?

    I thought I knew my acronyms... but what the heck is DM?

    I'm not a huge fan of Shrek either. The motion of the seats are too jarring for me. If I have to see it, I sit in the stationary chairs. Although the pre-show is amusing.

    And I do agree that while Waterworld is an excellent show... it's long overdue to change.

    In all the Potter focus, though, I wonder if they'll ever do anything with the old Western Show area. Granted they use it for Halloween for a maze, and now for the Grinchmas show... but for the entire rest of the year, it just sits there behind construction walls. I think they need to figure that area out.
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    Re: New Potter Rumor?

    I could understand Jaws and if they wanted more land they could take out the "Old Western show area", but not all the other certain areas that have been previously mentioned.

    I'm a huge Potter nut, but this is getting out of hand. It will look ridiculous seeing all this construction as other people have mentioned, but not only that, but it just won't go together.

    It doesn't make sense to go to Gringotts Bank, walk past Men in Black, the Simpsons ride, past the Kwik-E-Mart, and walk past a few other stands and a restaurant to finally get to Knockturn Alley. Doesn't sound very magical to me.

    Not saying those are the attractions, but I'm just saying for an example.
