Yes you can compare HP to everything else... and me not being a HP fan (as i frankly just don't understand the dam*ed text)... i think adding HP land is a good move and will undoubtly last throughout the ages... i mean come on.. you don't think that even when the books stop... the fad stops? our kid's kids will be reading harry potter just like i read The Lion Witch and the Wardrobe and The Wizard of Oz as a kid...
The president of Universal Oralndo did an interview on the Today show and while describing it he mentions restaurants, shops and 3 different atrractions. Assuming they retheme Dragons that only leaves 2 more new attractions to be added.
Was it just me or was Al Roker extremely rude in that clip?
Overall, I do think this is a great buisness desicion by Universal. Just as many people have already said, the Potter books are extremly popular and their legacy will last for quite a while. As a fan of the Potter books, I will just have to get out there in 2010! Good job Universal!
The fact that IOA is getting something new of this magnitude is great news no matter how popular Potter ends up being. As great as IOA is, it hasn't really changed since it opened. I will miss Lost Continent, but at least there's something big and new being added. I'm not the biggest Harry Potter fan, but I think the effort and attention to detail put into this project will turn out something really great.
