I still say Universal would make a billion times more money if they ditched this Potter stuff and just let Elissa and I do our SyFy Saturday Night makeover to the place. There is no way people all over the world would not travel and spend an insane amount of money to ride a Sharktopus ride. No way.

I knew about the announcement for Hollywood, but where did you see they are announcing something for Orlando tomorrow?

Tomorrow's announcement is IN California, with the Governor of CALIFORNIA...I imagine it will 99% be about Hollywood. Even if they mention 'more potterhell coming to Florida', I doubt they would announce specifically if it was the Lost Continent Expansion or the Jaws Expansion.

Like Elissa Said, there is a UNI announcement tomorrow, we'll see whats in it when it comes out. Originally when I heard about the announcement, it was just a general statement of "An Announcement" now with the info Robb and Elissa got, it does seem to be more geared to California.

They are just going to put up a big giant white curtain. Shine some lights behind it. Then sit back and watch the shadow puppet magic. ;)

Wow, I don't think you could be more upset unless Universal put in a Duggarville.

^^ Not saying that they couldn't use that road--however, without that road, resort operations would come to a standstill. It's what connects wardrobe, HR, both parks' operations offices, and USF's employee cafeteria (among other things) to the parks themselves and each other. Without a new route being devised and implemented first, the resort would be, if not completely paralyzed, then at least paraplegic. And it's really not wide enough to accommodate both things. So, if they're going to do it, they need to rearrange some stuff no matter how you look at it.

Having said that, with the potential payoff they might be seeing, there's no reason why they couldn't move heaven and earth to accomplish it.
