bkroz Posted August 18, 2015 Share Posted August 18, 2015 Why does Disney wait SO LONG to even begin construction? Why bother announcing years before even starting construction? There are probably a few reasons. For one, Disneyland park hasn't gotten a new E-Ticket since 1995 (20 years ago) and Hollywood Studios is in abysmal shape. Fans need to know that something - anything - is happening there, and with Disney's semi-annual D23, the next opportunity for a grand announcement would be 2017. Yikes! Second, Harry Potter is moving in at Universal Studios Hollywood... While the industry environment is much different out there (Disney and Universal are both elements of a Southern California vacation much more than competitors... they even team up for the CItyPASS ticket), Disney's announcement now has something to do with the Wizarding World in California, I bet. As to why they can't just put up the walls and start building today... Honestly, I don't know. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
