Sure, what you read are estimates. But estimates are entirely wrong usually at the end. Look at... well, I can't give you an example. But you'll just have to trust me, it's gonna cost a lot more!
The 300 million also doesn't include the budget for a new dino-coaster in IOA's Jurassic Park area. Looks like GE will be investing considerably more than what the 120 million for capital improvements that we learned about in early April.
Watch out WDW! Don't think Uni will remain behind the curve with respect to declining attendance much longer.
