    The hotel is not for the near term. It will be a couple of years at the soonest and 3 - 4 at the outside. Plenty of time. They will break ground in two years with opening in 6 so it it all aligns.
    They are pros, as long as the orange guy doesn't crash the economy it should work out.

    I agree, it is now the Coca-Cola eye so maybe it will stick around with the sponsorship

    Hell they could fit 5 or 6 parks into that land. Their 3d movie in a box attractions dont take up much space!

    Anyway... I don't think Uni needs to be worried about maxing out the number of rooms they can offer. They will steal business from all their hotel competitors before the Orlando market for more rooms dries up.

    So basically just talks about documents show Universal is looking at the entire 64-acre land mass of Wet 'n Wild that is split by Universal Blvd. Plans show Universal is looking at 4,000 hotel rooms and three parking garages for the property — one on the east parcel where the water park was and two on the opposite end where guest parking was located.

    The Orlando Sentinel also has this information no account needed.
