What changed recently that they want to invest so much in the American parks? Is it due to capacity issues or a realization that they neglected the American parks for too long?
All I can say is a substantial refurbishment was put on hold a few years back due to massive capacity constraints (my opinion is it was more $$$ related!). It was thought once new FL came online that things could proceed. Well... that didn't happen as the crowds picked up. I suspect this much is common knowledge around here as a space refurb has been discussed plenty? Whether or not there is 100% truth to the various reasons it was put on hold is beyond me. I'm simply restating what I was told and I trust this person and have no reason to doubt them. That being said, I have not been told anything specific to Space going down for refurb after Tron is online but rather how interesting not only the timing is but also the location.You're the only person who's come up this nugget. Why do you think you have this info but none of the other insiders do?
I'm hungry. 220.
Let's see what's read into that!
Hmm... hunger clearly references eating and 220 years ago would have been 1797.
Colonial American themed restaurant coming to Tomorrowland and will be announced at D23. #Confirmed
They've been spending a lot of money, just not predominantly on WDW rides; there was the huge outlay for MDE/FP+, for what it was worth around the same time they were spending a huge sum for the DCA overhaul out west while they made the Fantasyland expansion (again, for what it was worth); then the huge sum for Shanghai, followed by Pandora. Now it's time to throw a few billions at improving the rides at WDW.
And again, ymmv, but we also have a new Soarin' (I prefer the original), Africa expansion at AK, and the overhaul of Norway (which was certainly expensive as well).
So it's not like they've been completely ignoring WDW
Technically, @marni1971 corrected it.Isn't that site banned BECAUSE its a rumor mongering website? Literally the only reason this rumor has a shred of legitimacy in my eyes is because Martin is vouching for it.
They already have Star Wars at Hollywood Studios
I believe capacity was increased by 50%, not doubled, but I could be wrong.
