  • Disney's next big move

    With new theme parks like Harry Potter and the new Marvel Comics theme park to open in Dubai (yeah seriously, why out of country) What do you think Disney will do to amp up the competition? I mean I would think they would have to do something. I mean look at the Universal Studios and Disney MGM, WDW did their best to open first, which they did to avoid Universal to take some of their thunder. And now with two big money maker theme parks coming, what do you think Disney will do to stomp the competition?

    Maybe they will dress people in blue, and make them wear vests as they give out really amazing stuff like mouse ears, and for the big winners, they could get maybe like table service at a restaurant? Then so they remember the trip, they will get a bill for their meal, so they always have the credit card receipt! That would be sweet!!!

      They won't do anything and they will continue to be followers instead of leaders like they once were. They'll recycle all their concepts and add Pixar rides to everything. Universal in Florida is the new king of lavish theming and E Tickets I guess.

      Eisner doing MGM to trump Universal in Florida was a big mistake. Kevin Yee wrote about MGM's flaws in a recent update. The whole "movie stage" concept is horrible. In my opinion MGM is worse than DCA because at least DCA only has one Hollywood section and it doesn't emcompass the whole crappy park.

      There's hope for salvaging DCA's theme. I don't think there is for MGM.

        They should do a Star Wars park.

          I'm just curious who are they following besides MGM?

            Disney as an organization are following Universal. They are not the innovators anymore. Universal opened Islands of Adventure with a Spiderman dark ride where you wear 3D glasses. Now Disney is opening a Toy Story dark ride where you wear 3D glasses, on a much smaller scale I might add. And they are recycling the "shoot stuff get points" concept from Buzz.

            There's just one example. It's really sad that not many people are going to IoA, Disney doesn't deserve its numbers in Florida.

              Harry Potter will only have a 'land' at IOA. And who wants to go to Dubai? I don't see either as real competition.

                The Harry Potter land is going to be huge for IoA. If they can pull it off I HOPE that it pulls a lot of visitors away from WDW. That might put a fire under their ***** to clean up their parks.

                  In concept...yes it will be huge. But we all now how that can turn out when real money comes into play.

                    And they're actually redoing an "island" to do this. They will definitely see a bump (they
                    need it; their attendance decreased while WDC parks increased last year), so it won't
                    increase the total maximum capacity. Finally, there's still a big deal about actually
                    delivering on the concept. That's still a big IF.... I think Universal can do rides well (using
                    former Imagineers btw), but there's a lot of gotcha's if they want a themed "land".
                    Also there's a lot of additional cost that isn't readily apparent when doing this that
                    usually gets red-lined early by accountants that are critical to creating an immersive
                    experience.

                    I have not idea why Marvel wants to go to Dubai. Seems like a terrible idea to me.

                      IoA delivered once and it can do it again.

                        Agreed. Also bring the level of service back up.... it pains to see that they're tightening up
                        even at the so-called premium hotels.
