Walt Disney Imagineering DISH ... Holy Smokes!
The Disney Immersive Showroom (or DISH) looks AMAZING. With the company's broad applications of building informational models and reduced construction costs through LEAN production methods and integrated project delivery construction management represent a commitment to long term efficiency in core trade costs releasing a greater percentage of resources to creative development.
DISH begs the question: Could it be that Disney's slow hand when it comes to WDW attraction development represents a BRILLIANT strategy?
The Bloomberg piece was from yesterday. This is another clip related to the DISN/CAVE approach to modelling. Now consider the fact that They are using this technology in concert with James Cameron.
Looks cool, THC, but we want more princess meet and greets!
I Think Disney next buyout will be: Lightstorm Entertainment. This company will put in a Library like Marvel, Pixar and Lucasfilm.
Oscar, what would be the point to Disney buying out Lightstorm? Disney already has rights to the Avatar movies for their parks, James Cameron isn't likely to give up the movie rights to Avatar, and the rest of their very limited library doesn't have much for Disney to capitalize on as far as merchandising and sequels let alone put rides in their parks.
I've got another question for you THC. If OWNing the properties that they put into their parks is so important to Disney (and apparently you), won't Disney have to give up a chunk of the merchandising profits from the Avatar merchandise that they sell in Pandora to James Cameron like Universal will have to give to J.K. Rowling for the Harry Potter merchandise?

Nice sidestep, THC, but it won't work. This is the second thread (both started by you) where you have pointed out that Disney stands to make significant profits from selling merchandise in the parks based on the intellectual properties that they own while Universal will have to split the profits from the sales of Harry Potter merchandise with J.K. Rowling. So, to answer your question, I merely point out that it was worthy of being mentioned by you in two threads, so it is possible to imagine that it must have some significance to you. As far as Disney is concerned, I think you've done an admirable job of pointing out how significant it will be to their bottom line to own the intellectual properties that they merchandise.

"The way I see it, Disney is going make a ton of money, while Universal will use its apportioned slice of the revenue to re-cover its investment."
I could quibble ... but then I'd be a complete schmuck.
Deal on the Butterbeer!
Just thought I would throw this out there, one of the cast members at Animal Kingdom told me that a lot of, "ground-breaking, yet-to-be announced" things are coming to Animal Kingdom in addition to Avatar Land. She was very excited when describing it. Perhaps some of these things will be implemented.
It is better to get part of the profits from a great idea by some one else than all the profits from an ok idea of your own.
