    Marvel and Disney = awesome. I think Universal will continue to operate their park as normal and start cutting checks to Disney for rights to use them. I can't see Disney moving those thrill rides to the World. And I can't imagine them telling Universal to tear it down. Those rides and experiences build the Marvel brand - which is what Disney wants.

    While it may be a nice acquisition, I do not wnat to see the Marvel characters moving to WDW. They have a nice home at Universal and i would not want to see the magic change at WDW.

    I agree. I can't see the Marvel characters going to WDW except maybe in a DHS stunt show or something like that. The Islands of Adventure has so many Marvel based attractions, I don't see Disney trying to trump them.

    I think they would be great at DHS. Whats the difference between that and Indy Jones?

    But its not happening for a ride yet. Universal has exclusive rights for awhile east of the Miss River

    I don't think that I want to see Marvel attractions @ Disney.

    I read that Disney will honor the current contracts that Marvel signed until they expire. I think you will see the Marvel characters stay at Universal until these contracts are up. I don't think you will see Disney leave any of their owned properties at another park. Disney didn't acquire Marvel to share, it was purchased to make Disney money.
