    I agree with the first but not the second. F&F will be a crowd sucker if it can match Kongs ~4K/hr capacity. But Fallon isn't going to eat up much crowd in the slightest. Much lower ride capacity. Not frozen or minions low, but still low.

    For me, it's all about the synergy and marketing. The facade is significantly better than twister (and will make for some nice pics with the Macy's parade)- and the corporate synergy is fantastic. It's an improvement in almost every way (except capacity).

    I'm curious if they demo everything outside of ET to keep capacity and finally drop ET after F&F is done.



    As for the "debate", USF should rarely, if ever, be compared to Epcot or MK. It isn't either. It should be compared to DHS. Same type of park, same opening dates, etc. And it's beyond clear who the winner is there.

    Didn't mean as much tons of people will be able to ride, but I can see it having a decent wait time all day. Just gives people something else to do as a family while Kidzone is down.

    Well Johnny was on there for 30 years, Jay Leno for 22 years so its safe to say that Jimmy will be around until at least 2030. So there really shouldn't be any worry about that ride aging to quick.

    Maybe one day we'll get an updated video with Jimmy when he's like 65? That'll be fun to watch on an imax screen.
