Summer 2022 sounds to soon. If I were USJ, I would wait to 2023 when Covid should be behind them and do a massive new marketing campaign on Super Nintendo World overall. They lost the opportunity to do so the past year.
Agreed, there really isn’t a rush. DK is a way to get the opening crowds they were hoping for pre Covid

This is super unfortunate but it’s hysterical watching them approach this like it’s a medical evacuation.

Whole Pokemon Go event, wasn't it? I remember that survey
Forget a Pokemon Go event, they need an Animal Crossing event. They'd do gangbusters having a Nook's cranny pop-up and a Isabelle and Tom Nook meet and Greet. Not to mention a KK Slider concert at the plaza.

Eh, I think Summer 2022 sounds about right....barring nothing goes wrong implementing materials and whatnot.

I have to agree. USJ already anticipated how popular Nintendo World would be, especially the DK area. They had a year to assess the DK expansion after SNW was completed last year (but opened almost a year later due to COVID), and already have the layers designed to speed up the construction of the DK area. If it opens in 2022, then I'll be booking for a trip to Japan.

WDW grand strategy: They'll delay GOTG & Tron until 2025 to go up against the opening of Epic. ....I'm joking, but you never know what Disney is capable of. :lol:
I have a feeling Disney isn't paying enough attention to EU

Yes. With Disney obviously back in one of their all too often complacent modes under the reign of Chapek, Universal has a strong opportunity to crack a good
percentage of that WDW market dominance. The Disney veneer just may well crack.....and then the flood comes....maybe.
