Are we so protective of SNL that we jump past people's points and argue against a straw man?

My point was that it wouldn't be as intricate as Potter/SWL. I didn't say it wouldn't be as good or only as good as TSL.

I said it would be like what TSL had to do in order to faithfully re-create its source, which is lacking the photo-realistic intricate detail of Potter/SWL.
I’ll say it again, intricate detail does not require photo-realism. Something can be intricate and not realistic, Disney’s been doing that in the parks for a long time. A point you seem to be “jumping past”. Toy Story’s theming is rather minimal compared to Potter and Pandora. I’m simply suggesting that even though they aren’t recreating an area from a different planet, they still very much could pack it with the same level of detail we’ve seen from the major lands.
As you said Toy Story lacks a level of detail, it’s not arguing a straw man. The concept art for Nintendo shows a much higher level of detail than Toy Story. I’m not so much defending Nintendo land blindly here, just the potential the land could hit. Even with Universal’s mixed track record.

To wit...



That "off world city" is Batuu and the "magical London street" is Diagon Alley. Notice the lack of mentioning of a supersized backyard of toys.
It’ll be just as intricate and detailed as those lands. The subject matter is just different.
Where are they building this? Acreage? Concept art? Anything?
It’s set to open next year in Japan, followed by Hollywood, and then open with Universal’s third Orlando theme park. The rumored Donkey Kong Coaster won’t be in Japan.
It's about 4 acres, but a good chunk is on 2 levels. At least in Japan. It's not on the scale of SW:GE. More akin to the size of Hogsmeade minus Dragon Challenge.
KidZone is about 8 acres and this was originally supposed to take over that whole area in Orlando using a similar layout to Japan. Even without the coaster where are you getting 4 acres?

Wonder if they will have Extra Morning Magic for this by February
I have a feeling they'll be pulling out all the stops for this as soon as possible. Paid previews, Extra Morning Magic, extended evening hours - they'll all do two things:

  1. help alleviate crowds during the day, and thus aid in guest satisfaction
  2. bring in more money

So originally it was “SNW will give Stars Wars Land a run for its money in terms of immersive themed lands” to “SNW will be better then TSL”... not really shooting for the stars here people.

I am sure it will be somewhere between Pandora - Harry Potter - Star Wars... I see it most being like Toontown
