Pure laziness on Disney's part. This would be the perfect time for construction, especially since no guests are at the park.
I do not yet know enough about the reasoning behind Disney's decision to consider it a bad move.Not even the castle repaint, the most obvious thing to do now.
If their projects get stalled for months, I'm confident it's a bad move. I could honestly see Disney making this decision for purely financial reasons, which would be illogical, since a half-built construction site won't finish itself regardless of whether you're currently bringing in revenue, but cutting those extra expenditures will make a certain stockholder very happy!I do not yet know enough about the reasoning behind Disney's decision to consider it a bad move.
Work is being done on Marvel Superhero Island at least:but I don't foresee either resort doing much in the way of that.
It's fine, see https://www.orangecountyfl.net/Portals/0/Library/Emergency-Safety/docs/coronavirus/Emergency Executive Order No. 2020-04 - 03-24-20.pdf see page 5, #28 under the "essential exception" list. The construction work will continue as long as they follow the guidelines. There's no massive crowd of workers over there. #21 on the previous page covers maintenance, so that's allowed also.Agreed that this is the perfect time for maintenance and touchups. Disney has a million ride show elements that could be addressed and Universal could take this time to polish up the walkways, facades, and structures. However, with Orlando on lockdown for at least two weeks now, none of this will be deemed essential.
Don't get too focused on expansion plans for a park that is not yet open. Anything along those lines would be more discussion than serious development this far out.According to the Universal Forums Lord of the Rings may not actually replace Toon Lagoon and could be one of the 2 expanded lands to the park. The park has 2 expansion pads I believe. I could be wrong.
Toon Lagoon REALLY needs to be put out to pasture - I'm old and even I barely remember Dagwood, Beetle Bailey, Hagar, etc. and some of them I don't have any clue to who they are. Time to completely redo that area, leave Popeye rafts and blow up the rest.According to the Universal Forums Lord of the Rings may not actually replace Toon Lagoon and could be one of the 2 expanded lands to the park.
