The fairy thing has to do with the movie coming out on Oct 28th
Personally, it was an attraction that Disney should copy...fast
Keep in mind though, Universal has been resting on its laurels (and Hardys) for a few years. It is about time they add something new to IOA and USF. I just hope they refurb some of their excellent "older" attractions as well, because several of them are in need of "fresh paint."
And remember, the last time Universal and SeaWorld started a coaster war, Disney came back with Rock n Roller Coaster and Everest.
Competition is AWESOME!!!!
I think Disney will see equal visitors regardless of their inactivity next year. If they sit idle for a few years (like IOA), then it would be an issue.
I Respond: With all due respect since 2000: Men In Black: Alien Attack, Disaster, Revenge of the Mummy, Jimmy Neutron, Shrek 3D, Fear Factor and The Simpsons.
That's virtually a new attraction every year.
