    They will probably add buses to DHS (or whatever it ends up being called) but, I don't see how it could affect Monorails in anyway other then perhaps taking riders away from them. It is going to change the dynamic of the parks, because at least for awhile, MK will remain the most visited, but, Epcot will fall to 4th initially while "DHS" will become #2 and DAK with Avatar will become #3. I don't know how long that will last, but, initially that is where the 'musts sees' are going to be.

    I mean as in overall visitors park wise.
    There will be huge crowds.
    They will flood not only to DHS but also to the other parks, and its well known how the monorail goes constantly down on high days. I wouldn't be surprised if MyMagic crashes as well (since it seems to always crash on july 4th and President's day)

    Yeah it's interesting, at the earliest Epcot won't see another new attraction until 2020 if they break ground this year. Which would be smart as it would give them a new attraction for the year after Star Wars opens and then obviously in 2021 we expect a new attraction for MK's 50th.

    Lets hope that DHS's parking/entrance have been moved and redone (including buses) before SWL opens.

    The new highway entrance and parking lots were posted on the forums long ago. The permit for a new ticket booth... not yet.

    The rerouting of roads is fine- as Official Permit Master Dan has pointed out, but what about the overhaul to the entrance of the park and the parking lots themselves?

    I see that the ITJ contractor laydown area permits were filed earlier in March... It seems the ITJ project is the 'gondola' and the laydown area fit and are actually submitted under one whole project...

    I know its been known this is coming but this really makes me excited seeing more and more evidence this is actually coming to light.
