This was something I heard from Martin. I'm not sure if it's still planned for the hotel going there, but there was a plan for a hotel with the same "cruise ship feel". Whether they went forward with that or not is unclear to me.
That makes a fair amount of sense. Anything to keep high-rollers on property and out of Potter/Nintendo.
There is also a pitch for a S.E.A. themed resort for DAK.
That makes zero sense. Obscure IP that, at its heart, conflicts with the realistic, hippie-tree-hugger vibe of the park. It's so dumb I have no choice but to believe it's true.
