Obviously at the moment the new Harry Potter area is under construction at the Studios park but what does the Resort have planned past this year? The new CityWalk expansion will be ongoing, several new restaurants have recently opened including a new Mexican restaurant and a Stone Cold Creamery (*drools*). http://orlandounited.com/universal-announces-citywalk-expansion-plans-for-2014/ In the Studios park we could be seeing a retheme of the Kidszone area (where E.T. is located). What theme it'll get and when it'll happen hasn't been suggested but within the next few years is sounding like a reasonable time frame. Apparently Disaster is on the chopping blocks, what will replace it is unknown. However all the excitement at the moment seems to be over at Islands of Adventure.... Several projects have apparently been greenlit with fan informant HatetoFly posting recently the following: In the Jurassic Park area they recently closed off the Triceratops area (apparently a poor walkthrough where you met some animatronics). What is replacing it is still heavy rumours (which is odd considering the timeframe provided) but there will apparently be several new attractions including an E-ticket sized attraction. As with any rumours of this sort they do change from time to time as more info is leaked through the grapevine but HatetoFly tends to be rather spot on with his info. A new King Kong ride is even more exciting though. Although shorter it will be on the same level of epicness as the new Gringotts ride in terms of effects. In a podcast he unveiled a rough idea of the entire ride layout (he's done similar for Gringotts), it sounds exciting... Spoiler Two connected vehicles “Driver/guide” in first vehicle 4-6 people per row 5-6 rows in first vehicle 7-8 rows in 2nd Enter attraction through giant gates/old ruins left of Thunder falls terrace (where T-Rex Photo op is) go underground through ruins/temple. Heavily themed go upstairs/top of temple to ride load area (outdoors) scenes 1-3 are outdoors 3-4 transition indoors through wall 4a,4b,5 indoors 5-6 transitions back outside “Very unique” bonus scene after unload. 4a (insect chasm) has 4 active AAs, + multiple insect projections. (Scorpions, centipedes, dragonflies) 4b vehicle loses (control) into a cave (bat cave) Scene 5 is the major scene with Kong (large number of projectors in this scene) Scene 6 will have something physical that a lot of people will be happy to see He's also been very active on twitter recently posting things like the below... https://twitter.com/hatetofly/statuses/438015685005148160 https://twitter.com/hatetofly/statuses/437723031390019584 Above is a recent aerial photo taken by Bill on BGT fans. The picture was accompanied by this... So yeah, lots of construction is starting that isn't related to Harry Potter. It's a very exciting time at the Universal park and they sure are throwing money at new additions and makeovers at the moment. I think I read that even though the new hotel they're building isn't finished there is talk of construction starting on a new one.
