Eh... This argument has always bothered me.At this point they should really just call the parks "Universal's Harry Potter Resort...and some other IPs. too"
I know the Potter fandom is high on this board, but I really think they are over doing it a bit.
Diagon has just as many attractions dedicated to it as NYC and Springfield (2 each). Adding MoM will match it to Production Central (at a colossal 3). On the Islands side (including Forbidden Forest and HE), it still has the same number of attractions as Marvel and Seuss at 4.
I get it. Harry Potter is in both parks. But both areas are wildly distinctive and it includes a globally unique transportation system between parks. Each independent land has an equivalent number of attractions as everywhere else in the park. Conversely, current speculation has Nintendo coming in with 3 attractions plus Zelda (for at least 4 in Studios). The speculated Christmas Island would have 3 to 4 attractions (plus show).
Comparing the number of attractions (ie - rides) in each land appropriate land is the only way to do it. When you do that, Harry Potter is so far from taking over the resort it's asinine that this "Just call it Harry Potter Orlando" is still a thing.
