If this is even legit in any way, look at where Simpsons is situated. It's right next to Hogsmeade. I have to think Diagon would be top of the list as a potential replacement + the potential of adding in a MoM ride along with it.This sucks
I love that land and doubt a old land from Florida will be better
Now if it was Nintendo or a new land cool but no thanks to an old land
If Diagon would legitimately take Springfield...how in the hell could that work? The only solution I'd think of is that Simpsons Ride would be just demolished and used as open plaza space, and then the Studio Tour Plaza and backstage space around that as Diagon and Gringotts.Diagon Alley.
Decided to stew a bit more on the subject--and let's say, if Springfield goes for London and Diagon...how does that not include the Studio Tour plaza.
If Gringotts comes to USH, it would be a 2.22 acre attraction, that couldn't fit into The Simpsons Ride without heavy changes to roadways, infastructure, and what-not.
However, there is one area that could work rather well for this potential option: The current spot of where the maintenance shed goes. If Diagon would come, Gringotts would need land; about 2.22 acres worth. Hypothetically, they could do something really well with that of the area at the maintenance barn, alongside a small portion of the plaza. And then for the rest of Diagon, have it within the plaza and touching a small portion of the hillside, with a connector over where the current Tram entrance is.
Now with that said, how would you tackle the issue of the elevation of the tram plaza? Simple: you don't. You have Diagon be elevated to be above the height of the current tram plaza as it stands now. Essentially, think like a mall. That would allow the area to blend in a bit more with that of a new London (in the wake of Springfield being turned into that of London), and saving The Simpsons Ride and Special Effects Stage down the road, with both the VR attraction and the Ministry of Magic attraction from Epic Universe.

Simpsons is a weird anomaly to me when it comes down to it. One that I can't see much coming, unless they get super duper creative with the footprint of The Simpsons Ride.
