So there will be something else in 2013? I just hope it will not be another bunch carnival rides like TSPL or another cheap show. It's time for a quality ride.
I also hope that Jack Sparrow isn't coming to POTC.
I doubt that ST II is coming, since ED SCA CEO Philippe Gas said that it is currently too expensive to upgrade the ride. In the US parks it didn't bring more guests to the parks.
Given the financial situation I would already be happy if Disney keeps the refurbs in the resort going on. I would also be pleased if SM would be rethemed to "From Eath to the Moon". I don't know if the track needs to be replaced. Maybe it just needs new vehicles.
I think it is a combination of new vehicles and tracks that is needed for SM. A thing like that would take 6 - 12 months to do in the park.
But all of that is not what I hope is comming for 2013... if anything.
Let's be realistic. If something will come in 2013 and still has to be build, they have about 1,5 year to build it (if it would open in summer 2013). You can't expect DLP to build an E-ticket ride in 1,5 years, since that usually takes at least a year longer. So I would expect an upgrade of an attraction or a new smaller C of D ticket ride.
Common sense is that DLP has the best POTC version and so I really hope Jack Sparrow will not be added to the ride. It should stay as it as.
I always hoped that when Tokyo announces Star Tours 2, DLRP will also be forced to open it, but I think it will take a long time until we see it in Paris.
Although ST 2 didn't bring more people to the US parks, I still think that in Europe it can improve the attendance with a big advertising campaign.
If I weren't on Mice Chat I would not know that ST 2 existed. Poor advertisement by Disney.
