Well at Disneyland they started construction in January 2016, that is when they shut down the DLRR and the river. So 3 years is about right for a whole new land. I think it was that long for Carsland at DCA.

Thought the year had already been stated somewhere. And late 2017 or early 2018 for Toy Story Land.

As much as I appreciate the details Disney puts into their theme parks, as a share holder, I have to ask why the heck this is taking so long. The general public is seeing universal add a ride a year and they don’t all see and or appreciate the differences. Are we now in the declining years of Iger a la late Eisner?

2019 is about 2.5 years away at the earliest. That’s awfully ambitious. DHS is even further behind.

No way is it complete by 2019, they are consistently 1 year behind schedule. I would plan on 2020, the real deadline is probably 2021 so nothing is under construction for the 50 year anniversary of WDW
