I think at this point, the question is, does anyone in TDO, or more importantly, the main offices have some pride in that recently renamed studios park to invest in it, before Universal takes all of the limelight.
As you know full well...universal is not on par or a legitimate threat to disney in orlando...not currently or in the likely future...

And in reality, it would be unlikely to see major investment in Studios.

We are more likely to see large investment in
A. Animal kingdom
C. Tomorrowland at MK
...before anything earth shattering at studios.

They have had plenty of tine and justifications to really make a push at MGM - and have passed on every occasion.

Its not realistic to think that now they'll reverse.

Just look at the initial "reaction" to potterville...they responded by throwing large money into the most heavily attended park on earth by a comfortable margin

That seems telling to me.
Went there.....
Worked there....(Resort Operations)
Wed there....(EPCOT 2004)
Bought there....(SSR 2006)

Last Trip: Too Long Ago
Next Trip: Can i borrow some money to go?
Gift Shop Quality: When did we get to WalMart?
Food Quality: Only the finest free range roast chicken breast and loch dart salmon in the Kingdom
