    Will the meet and greet with her be announced during the press event on the 12th and will she meet and greet white men 40+?
    Just kidding ;) of course she won't.:bolt:

    But yeah she is part of the contract and camps out at Universal on the east coast.

    Now that Disney has completed the acquisition of several of Fox’s production and distribution units I’d like to remind everyone Disney isn’t going to use the Simpsons in the Universal parks to “leverage” Universal to give up Marvel rights.

    1. Marvel has a contract that runs into perpetuity, Simpson’s is not.
    2. Marvel is worth more to Universal than Simpsons is.
    3. Disney ya repeatedly stated they are happy with the rights they do have for WDW.

    In what universe is a dying TV show even remotely equal to a multi-billion dollar mega-hit money printing machine? People think the strangest things.

    Simpsons contract ends sometime around 2030 right?

    I want to enjoy as many Krusty Burgers as I can.

    I think it's over in like 2028? Unless I'm misremembering what others have said

    It’s a weird “if Disney controls it then it’ll be better” thing. Which is absurd.

    I think it’s likely the ride is gone before then and the land is phased out after that.

    I'll be honest, I'd demolish the ride whenever they either replace KidZone and fold it into that project or whenever they replace MIB and fold it into that project. Keep FFB, the Quickie Mart, and Kang&Kodos around until the contract ends. It's the part of the land everyone likes anyway
