    Today, December 5, 2019, was the official opening of "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance" within Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Hollywood Studios. The ride was met with a very enthusiastic reaction from what were relatively large crowds. The ride was accessible only through a virtual queue boarding group system which filled up soon after park opening. The ride experienced at least two downtimes about 30-60 minutes each but when it was running the boarding groups were moving decently quick.

    BREAKING:

    THE LONDON RESORT GIVES FIRST LOOK AT “NEXT GENERATION” THEME PARK
    05 Dec 2019

    One of the most sustainable, world-class destinations also reveals ‘six lands’

    The London Resort has revealed new, concept artwork, for the six lands that will be created as the first phase of the 535-acre site, the equivalent of 136 Wembley Stadiums. The visuals are the first to be revealed since The London Resort announced its partnerships with the BBC, ITV Studios and, most recently, Paramount Pictures.

    It follows hot on the heels of a partnership announcement with EDF Energy that aims to make The London Resort the most sustainable, major theme park destination in the world. In what is believed to be a first for the global tourism industry, the deal will see The London Resort pursue a Net Zero emissions goal.

    Four visuals have been released, hinting at the “next generation” rides and unique experiences people can expect when the park opens in 2024.

    “We are creating a first-class theme park. A destination that maximises all the new, immersive and interactive technologies and experiences in the world,” said PY Gerbeau, Chief Executive of London Resort Company Holdings (LRCH). “But we won’t just be creating a world class leisure destination, it will also be one of the most sustainable theme parks on the planet.”

    “We have three guidelines we work to when it comes to developing attractions,” continues Gerbeau. “Number one is innovation. We’re not here to copy what’s been done before even if it has been successful. Number two is relevance. We need to consider that the customers of today will not be the customers of 2024. And the third is flexibility. We need to create a park that can evolve and adapt easily.”

    Billed as one of the most ambitious theme park projects ever in Europe, the London Resort will be the first European development of its kind to be built from scratch since the opening of Disneyland Paris in 1992. It will eventually be a two-park resort – the first ‘gate’ will open in 2024 and the second within five years (2029) and it is expected that around 70% of attractions will be undercover.

    The six lands of The London Resort

    The entrance to The London Resort will be via a grand plaza that leads visitors and hotel guests through ‘The High Street’. Full of shops, restaurants, hotels, a Convention Centre and a first-class waterpark.

    Visitors can start their journey in The Studios, a gritty, modern-day warehouse district that practically roars with the exhilarating thrills of big, blockbuster features. A winning combination of explosive action, high-octane car chases and high-stakes espionage.

    Just to the north lies The Woods, an enchanted realm where springtime reigns eternal and the boundary between reality and fantasy dissolves. Here, the young and young-at-heart will be invited to step through the pages of a storybook and embark on adventures that put a fresh spin on beloved bedtime stories, fables and fairy tales.

    From the Woods, the journey continues through the ages into The Kingdom, an immersive realm of swords, sorcery, dragons & legend. This is England as a dark and ancient land, a place of threatening and imposing castles and mystical Arthurian legends.

    To the north lay The Isles, a land of giant creatures, mythical beasts and adventures at the crossroads of imagination and reality. Fantastic jaw dropping architecture will combine with magnificent rides and 21st century technology.

    The past begins to blend with the future in The Jungle. Ancient ruins of a mysterious long-lost Mesoamerican civilisation are seen pushing up through treetops. Here, an overgrown environment, brimming with ancient secrets, surprising discoveries and strange mystical artefacts will be transported to the present by inquisitive explorers – young and old.

    The final land, dedicated to futuristic experiences, alien encounters and big thrill rides, The Starport is a bustling 23rd century landing zone. It will launch visitors into thrilling science-fiction adventures that are out of this world, leaving them mesmerised at things that should be impossible but are not.

    Hainan Ocean Paradise is looking great but there's still plenty of work to be done before the theme park opens next year:

    Entrance plaza





    Whale shark aquarium



    Dolphin show and exhibit





    Mytikas Waterpark

So this is either a very early idea or the positioning of everything has changed around.
    You could certainly be correct. Keep in mind that the labels on the model screenshot are someone’s interpretations, not official.

    It seems that construction has begun on the Doppelmayr gondola system, as seen in this photo taken earlier this month that appears to show a gondola station:



    Based on design portfolios shared by people involved in the Vidanta theme park project we're able to gain insight into the potential plans:

    First, in terms of naming/branding, as of right now the plan seems to be naming the entire 830 acre theme park resort destination "The Parks" - this is akin to Disney naming their resort in Orlando as a whole "Walt Disney World Resort" and Universal naming their resort in Orlando as a whole "Universal Orlando Resort". The first theme park to be built at The Parks as part of phase 1, will apparently be named "Vidanta World" - Vidanta World was originally the Cirque du Soleil theme park. I believe Vidanta World also encompasses the under construction hotels including The Cascades and Kingdom of the Sun.

    Let's take a look at some of this potential Vidanta World branding:







    Now some potential branding for The Parks, which would be the overarching resort destination (most of what is referred to about The Parks is about the first phase - Vidanta World):



















    Notice the layout shown in this image - to the southeast of Vidanta World is a large waterpark which would be a part of a later phase of The Parks, also what is the black line going around that area? A monorail path?



    Regarding Cirque du Soleil's current involvement or lack thereof, it appears that it has gone from the entire theme park and waterpark revolving around and being themed to Cirque du Soleil to just a dedicated area/land/section within Vidanta World being themed to Cirque du Soleil:

    More information is announced regarding the land animated by Cirque du Soleil. This new area will boast a dinner theatrical experience that will be even more spectacular than the incredibly popular JOYÁ with three times the acts and even more seating.

    It’s also announced that the Cirque land will include the world’s first Cirque du Soleil Academy, where guests can learn about everything from tumbling and performing from the experts at Cirque.

    Every aspect of the Cirque section will be filled with acrobatics and performances leaping to life around every corner. This will be the first time Cirque has staged constant exterior acts.
    Here's concept art for a preview center for The Parks:







    Interesting lines from the preview center's timeline:

    January 2017:

    Not satisfied with the current scale of the project [this is when it was the full scale Cirque-themed theme park and waterpark], the executive team discusses how to further evolve the design. Believing in the strength of the tourism market in Mexico, it is decided to draft a new Phase 1 of The Park.

    What was first designed as a 22-acre experience park is expanded into what will ultimately be 830 acres of groundbreaking entertainment.
    April 2017:

    Wing T. Chao, the industry veteran that expanded the imprint of Disney Parks, joins the team designing The Park. Other leaders from major international parks also flock to the project, eager to make history.
    May 2017:

    Continuing in its iconoclastic approach to designing the project, the team decides to take a nature-first philosophy to The Park. The new plans are revised to include blooming gardens, jungle thickets, mountains, waterfalls, and two enormous lakes at the very center. Digging begins on the lakes.

    Construction is completed on the base structure of Kingdom of the Sun Tower 1.
    July 2017:

    After months of planning, Grupo Vidanta announces that The Park won’t just be a single experience park. It will be a series of immersive experiences and attractions that will span multiple “lands”, each featuring unique themes. The working name of the project is changed from The Park to The Parks.

    Some of the areas to open in Phase 1 of The Parks are:
    - A frontier-themed land
    - A children’s ride land
    - An adventure land
    - Magical gardens
    - Lush temple ruins
    - A beautiful boardwalk area
    - A Cirque du Soleil land

    It is announced that The Parks will include a focus on gourmet dining. Unlike any other popular theme parks. The Park will offer exceptional culinary experiences, from restaurants to street stalls.
    August 2017:

    It’s announced that Phase 1 of The Parks [Vidanta World] will be inspired by the world’s beauty. From architecture to cuisine to landscaping, the experience will draw from some of the globe’s most beautiful locales in the South Pacific, Mediterranean, and South America.
    January 2018:

    Design begins on … rides and features for The Parks:
    - An Illuminated Forest
    - Spectacular Water Shows
    - Air Acrobatics Performances
    - A Parachute Drop
    - A Flume Ride
    - A Ferris Wheel
    - A Carousel
    - A Topiary Maze
    - Storybook Boat & Train Rides
    - Roller Coasters
    And Much More
    Lastly, here's an ad for The Parks in the latest issue of The Vidanta Traveler magazine, which was published earlier this month:

    Here's a look at some more theming samples for Transformers: Metrobase, this time for the pathway designs:







    Last week Universal Beijing added a new 'Explore' section to their official website that will have details about each of the areas. So far they added a page for Kung Fu Panda Land of Awesomeness: https://www.universalbeijingresort.com/en/kfp.html

    The only new thing is a short video that has an animation of two of the area's flat rides:
