While it is a nice accomplishment, I am tired of seeing Universal consistently throwing out this talking point. We get it, New Fantasyland is being built slower. Make a good ride, not a ride you can build fast.
I also think the building is in a horrible bottlenecking spot.
Why not do both? Transformers won the title of best new attraction last year over Radiator Springs Racers. I'm sure that accounts for a decent quality.

These votes are always something of a strange affair as the two attractions in question couldn't be more different. They are aimed at a different demographic, deliver totally different ride experiences and offer totally different environmental experiences. Transformers is a 'smack 'em between the eyes' 5 minute blast inside a soulless building. Whilst you are on the ride it's totally immersive and delivered with cutting-edge technology. Radiator Springs Racers is a much gentler affair and can't really be seen out of the context of the whole of Cars Land - the whole area is designed to immerse you in characters and landscape and details and to be experienced slowly and in depth. Both attractions have their strengths but comparisons and especially grading against each other are kind of pointless.
I'm happy to see both models exist side by side. Disney traditionally take longer over construction but tend to deliver high-quality immersive lands when finished. It appeals to a different mind-set, and that's fine. Whether Mr Potter's fast-tracking will give them cause to reconsider their construction schedules remains to be seen....
