    The Myrtle Beach attraction is completely severed from any rights agreements Universal has with Simpsons/FOX. I say this with the utmost confidence.

    I actually always like seeing them out and about for some reason. I can't stand the ride, but the costumes always make me smile.

    Motiongate from memory had no Marvel Land.

    They had a Dreamworks land, and a standard rubbish coaster painted green that they called Green Lantern.

    Well The Simpsons could be used in WDS park in Paris since The Simpsons is also popular in Europe.

    If Disney uses The Simpsons in their parks (which I actually think stands a chance), it will likely only be for M&G's, merch and F&B.

    On the Orlando part of things, i've heard from someone who works in costuming at Universal that Disney has been giving Universal a hard time about the costumes and upkeep, has insisted the costumes be sent to an Orlando location for Disney to clean them and now Universal is short on actual Simpsons costumed characters. Odd rumor and seems like it would breach contract, but figured i'd pass it along in case it carried any weight.

    I meant like if they create a Springfield area in WDS Disney imagineers could easily create a full replica of Springfield, and make a negotiation with Comcast to bring The Simpsons Ride in WDS having the ride be in both English, and French depending on the ride vehicle.

    If Disney ever makes a Simpsons attraction for their parks, they will not be collaborating with Universal Creative or Comcast.

    and Abu is still doing his thing in the Simpson's ride pre show. Glad Universal didn't give in to that nonsense.

    The thing is if the Simpson’s ride does go their aren’t too many options to replace it.

    When Simpsons goes, for both Orlando and Hollywood in my guess..they'd likely demolish the buildings.

    The system is becoming more and more dated, and both lots are prime for whatever Universal may desire.

    You just don’t see Bond replacing Simpson’s because Universal can’t use Bond because it doesn’t have the rights?

    The ride system still holds - it's the IP, film, that is getting tired.

    But they have more pressing issues than fixing this.

    I personally can't handle that ride system - way too nauseating for me. If they do knock everything down and start fresh, I won't be upset.
