2019-08-08 Universal Orlando Announces Best Theme Park Ever

Although we do not visit Florida much, we thought the announcement by Universal Orlando interesting. First, it is announcing a project that is underway, that has no concrete theme yet, is going to be larger than anything else in the Universal portfolio and will be an economic contributor to the area in terms of taxes and employment opportunities. Second, it reinforces the idea that theme parks will be future draws to an area.

All of us are looking forward to the completion of Vidanta World, and the Universal article reinforces the fact that announcements of major projects are published years before a project opens. Phase One of Vidanta World is likely to open in 2022, three years from now and five years from the first year dirt started to move in earnest. Stay tuned....
