The focus on Universal Orlando is squarely aimed at Epic Universe. The massive project site south of the existing resorts and parks is very active. However, at the existing parks, there doesn't seem to be a lot of activity. There is the upcoming 'Villain Con' attraction, but there are no major projects under construction at the existing parks. There was the announcement that the KidsZone area would be closing but there seems to be no real information that it will become the site of another major E-ticket.
Meanwhile, at IOA, there don't seem to be any rumors or whispers regarding any new developments at that park.
If this is the case, and Universal doesn't get started on a new attraction sometime soon, the next major addition to the resort would be UEU -- which is (assuming a July opening) about 27 months away.
WALT DISNEY WORLD
Disney has an E-ticket opening next month ('TRON: Lightcycle Run') and will be launching its 100th anniversary marketing campaign. This will follow the opening of the new 'World Discovery', 'World Nature' and 'World Celebration areas at EPCOT. That carries them into 2024.
For Disney, 2024 becomes really interesting. Appointing Bruce Vaughn as WDI's Chief Creative Officer, is the first of what will be many c-suite changes -- the biggest of which will be Mr. Robert Iger's successor as CEO. I suspect, that the September 2024 D23 Expo will have a ton of announcements related to parks and experiences -- aanouncements that maybe made by Mr. Josh D'Amaro, Mr. Vaughn and the company's new CEO.Tweet
