    It is enough of the area. Permits will also need to be filed and that has not happened either.

    Re: Which one Florida theme park development RU currently most excited about?

    Welcome Jay Rasulo, Bob Iger, Thomas Staggs, or Meg Crofton to this thread!

    . . . . . . . . . . . (Someone used their one vote to vote for MagicBands.)

    And congrats on the Dwarf coaster for your two votes.

    As I write this Avatar and the unclear Star Wars developments have earned a combined 8 votes (to Potter's 14), even though they won't open for a long, long, loooooong time.
    Had I started this thread in the Universal section, Universal might have beaten WDW by a bigger %.

    Most votes (over 61%) are currently are for Universal's Harry Potter expansion. But WDW's official Avatar groundbreaking was publicized this week.

    Any new love for Avatar or the Harry Potter expansion? When will Pandora be finished in the Animal Kingdom?

    The Harry Potter Expansion into Universal Studios park is by far the most anticipated current project underway, . . . especially considering how detailed and how well HP in Islands of Adventure was done.

    It doesn't help much that the WDW ballyhooed Fantasyland "Expansion" actually resulted in fewer attractions. With so much space available in WDW, there is NO excuse for that! The only thing good, about that is the MUCH superior Little Mermaid facade, compared to the ugly behemoth in DCA.

    After Universal's latest announcement I'm rather disappointed that they aren't doing more than one coaster and a huge amount of retail and dining.

    I have hope for Avatarland that it's more than two additional attractions and has great rides.

    Forbidden Journey is new, Hogwarts is new. That is two additional attractions.

    The rest of WWoHP was rethemeing of existing attractions. For Gringotts we lost Jaws. Zero additional attractions.

    Well you just changed your metric. You were last complaining about them only doing a coaster.

    And based on attendance, most people seem to consider the shops with visiting and something like Olivander's as an attraction.

    The Harry Potter series will always hold a special place in my heart, while Avatar does not.. Therefore I'm much more excited for those developments!

    Re: Which one Florida theme park development RU currently most excited about?

    I'm not a Universal Orlando employee but I voted for the Harry Potter expansion. It's really coming and bridging two parks with one attraction just thrills me to no end.

    At Disneyland we had a Skyway that brought people from Tomorrowland to Fantasyland and vice versa. The Railroad makes several stops. And the Monorail took us to the hotel. But nothing has ever been done like this before.

    Let's face it, WDW has rested on their laurels for waaaaaay too long and they're going to need more than a new Fantasyland and Avatar to do it. Avatar is just way too far away for me to be remotely interested… and it's not even a property I enjoy. It just exists.

    And Universal has consistently delivered ride technology that are mind blowing with Spider-Man/Transformers, Harry Potter, and now Gringott's. We still don't know where Avatar will take us.

    Harry Potter World 2.0 ftw! Universal is really creating quality attractions in so little time its insane. The seven dwarves mine train looks to be smaller and not as e-ticket-ish as Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts and has taken what seems like a lot longer for them to realize. Universal has the build model right...If you build it they will come. Now please Disney go back to this philosophy. Not; if we repackage it they will come.

    I think the dwarf coaster could get some more votes over the next few weeks.
