Just read through the debates about the opening of the JP coaster and the T2 replacement and when they would be opening, and while I was doing it there was a story on TV about how OIA is busier than ever and they are recommending travelers get there earlier for screening, specifically mentioning "there is no off season anymore". Does it really matter if an attraction at Universal or Disney opens at the start of the peak summer season? Or would it be just as effective to open in the fall or March or some other time of year? Yes, summer is still the peak season for all the parks, but if you open something in the fall people will still come. I keep thinking that the idea that JP could open in late 2020 or early 2021 is really inconsequential. Whenever Bourne opens, it opens. The parks are busy all year, and people will come no matter what. I think the opening of Star Wars Land will prove that the time of year something opens really doesn't matter, and in some ways there may be advantages to opening a big new attraction in an off peak time to help smooth the growing pains in time for the crazy times of Christmas and summer. For regional parks like SeaWorld and Busch Gardens it still makes sense to try and get new capital open in time for peak season since they rely on the "summer crowds", but for destination parks like Disney and Universal it really shouldn't make much difference.
