Are any in legitimate fear of cancellation? China film, Space restaurant? I don't really see the likes of Tron getting axed....despite my slight reservations concerning the budget.
I shouldn’t go into specifics yet. To be honest there’s not much to specify just yet.

All I can see is @marni1971 acknowledging that DHS, Epcot and DAK are competing over a single ride technology. Has Martin or anyone specified that it's actually Shanghai Pirates tech or is that wishful thinking from fans.
I think people are reading it as a confirmation via omission seeing that other details were commented on one way or another

I'm surprised they havent revealed the plans for another country, like Brazil...
To be fair they announce things way too early. Some of the stuff not coming until 2020/2021 they could have held off talking about until 2019 if they really wanted to, while they are quietly well into construction. But I get the whole 'marketing' thing.

But even then I still think things are announced about a year too soon than they are (and in some cases even more too soon, like Pandora). But again, marketing, all that stuff, and they feel like they have to have park announcements at D23.

And then Galaxy's Edge will squander hundreds of millions to increase DHS's ride roster a further 33% and DL's ride roster by like 7%. What a terrible return.
In terms of numbers, it will help the park, but what a lackluster solution....when you think they could have built a fully realized and fleshed out Toontown complete with a new generation CarToon Spin, then add a Spinner and a nicely themed coaster...It could have been charminginstead of fiberglass toys in the backyard...

They're not spending that. It is an all stock deal.
Understood but it will still have an impact on spending. It looks like Dis is planning to increase stock buybacks leading up to the deal closing up to $10B in 2018. Plus when you consider the incremental spending on the streaming services and a lack of monetization for most of the streaming service content (at least initially) that puts a big strain on Capital.

No one is going broke and I think it is short sighted to move any money away from P&R, but I can see where the rest of this Fiscal year and next may feel some pressure.

There is no shortage of money at TWDC. They do all that buyback crap and stuff that's extra to avoid being taxed on it.
