How can 2015 measure up?

Submitted by James Trexen

The awards this year got me thinking. Everyone wanted the new Diagon Alley attractions to be nominated for Best New Attraction, but since they opened in July, they were intelligible. Robert said they were a shoe-in for next year and I started thinking about how the even years have been better than the odd ones. 2010 saw the opening of the original Wizarding World, 2012 saw the completion of Disney California Adventure with Cars Land and Buena Vista Street along with the majority of New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom, and 2014 welcomes Diagon Alley, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and Ratatouille at Paris.

So, the question begs to be asked: What can happen in 2015 so that it doesn't get lost in the shadows of 2014/2016 like 2011 and 2013 did? Let's rule out any major expansions because any such project wouldn't be able to be finished in time. Anything like renovations of existing rides or retheming other ones are fair game, along with some smaller ideas like better maintenance.

Please take a moment to share this post, and encourage others to reply!

I just thought of something, Diagon Alley is not an attraction.

It's possible King Kong at IOA will open towards the end of 2015.

Shanghai Disney Resort is targeted to open at the end of 2015.
Alone it will make 2015 the year with most new rides in this decade.
