    Just going to add onto this, so that this becomes a full-resort blue sky.

    Citywalk: Themed to a mountain village, built into the mountain that stands as the resorts icon. A faux-river would run through the majority of the area, with waterfalls cascading down into restaurants and shops.

    Storm Mountain: The resorts waterpark. The majority of the slides would be built into the mountain, becoming what Volcano Bay could've been. Takes major inspiration from Blizzard Beach.

    Hotels: Themed to mountain lodges. The resorts primary hotel would stand near the summit of the mountain, giving guests a breathtaking view of the whole area. Another hotel would be attached to the waterpark, and a third would be attached to the theme park. A fourth would be built near the convention center.

    Please forgive any grammar mistakes.

    Edited that.

    To give some blue sky:

    Entertainment Complex - The new Entertainment Complex, would be inspired by elements of classical Mediterranean architecture, with multiple varied shops and restaurants. There would also be a new major theater, to where it will have touring Universal Broadway Productions come down to that location (including the likes of Wicked at the start).

    Hotels - There would be two hotels at the start, the first, using NBC's The Golf Channel as the basis along with using the architecture of the entertainment complex, for a Deluxe resort. The second, would be a collaboration with Cirque De' Soleil on a unique deluxe resort, with a unique story and theme, exclusive to the hotel. There would also be a dedicated Cirque De' Soleil show, on the scale of The Beatles Love. Both the hotels would cater to more adult audiences, due to the proximity of the Orange County Convention Center.

    My 2 cents! I know this might be an unpopular opinion, but please don't have the layout akin to IOA or the World Showcase. I much prefer any other layout for a theme park. I don't mind it in The World Showcase as much as the countries are all on a similar level as far as my desire to see them, (I'm not rushing through China so I can spend time in Italy), but this could change with the addition of new attractions back there, but I've def spent way more time in Mex/Norway/China/Italy thank the UK or Canada since I always head left, and the only other benefit is the natural beauty of a lagoon and the ease of putting on a nighttime spectacular in the center, however I hate having to walk in a giant circle to see each land, and really backtrack or retrace steps to do anything more than once or come back if the line is long.

    I want Uni to finally do a hub/spoke model (aka MK/DL), but I have a feeling we'll end up with another large central lagoon

    Why not both? Have a hub based around a central lagoon, then have lands surrounding that.

    Make the lagoon smaller than normal, more like a pond than a lagoon. Build some sort of city as the hub, then have lands expand outwards from the city.

    I mean, that's still a central lagoon park layout. Hub and spoke means you can get to any land from the center of the park.

    I think they’re saying that the lagoon will be so small it’ll pretty much be a H&S

    What about having a hub in the middle of the lagoon (an island with an attraction of some kind), with bridges/walkways extending out from there to the other lands?
