    With Cabana Bay not being as tall as it should have been and the plans for Sapphire changing slightly to encompass more space, the future boutique hotel has now been moved across I4 as a possibility just as you said. Just not sure where exactly.

    If they are building 2-3 hotels like that, would be nice to see them do something like Disney's Boardwalk and build it all along the same strip and with some nice views (and possibly more shopping) given they will be farther away from the parks.

    WDW Has the luxury of having connected lakes and an access road that goes around the resorts.

    Universak Blvd could be a problem connecting the hotels with the water access.

    They could work with the FDOT to put an overpass over the I-4 on ramp (and sort of make it like the bridge/walkway to cabana with greenery) so it never really feels like you are leaving Universal property when you are going from those hotels to the parks. Just farther away.

    That would seem like the best way to do it imo, plus you wouldn't have to wait at the light anymore either.

    From what we understand:

    There are other plans for this property.

    No. Not 3rd Park either. :lol:

    What? There might be an official announcement this week?

    I am thinking again about what would make an interesting water park ride, a hydromagnetic mat racer type slide, I had a dream of it once. Of course in my dream you also went completely upside down through a looping lol.

    This wouldn't surprise me. Both Sea World and Busch Gardens have plans to announce their new rides tomorrow and Thursday...why not steal some of their thunder with the announcement of a whole new park? Uni loves doing that.

    11AM is looking pretty interesting today per Universal's twitter. The GIF is of the Uni logo and then water flows up from the bottom. :happy:
