Revenue up 40%? Holy Hogwarts! And, if my math is right, that's an extra $117M in profit this year vs. last---with only about a half-year's worth of operation. Given that the whole investment was something in the mid-$200M range, they have to be feeling pretty good about things.

Layoffs often lead to raises for everyone left behind.

Andy, I hope that's sarcasm. Every place I ever worked at when layoffs happened you were just happy to keep working.

I was just there on Tuesday, and for being a weekday in the off-peak season, it sure seemed busy. Potter-land seemed really well done, and they had consistently had a long line of people waiting to buy $30 plastic wands, so that's got to be good for business. My only complaint (other than the Potter area being too crowded) was that Forbidden Journey was busted every time I tried to get in line.

My only complaint is when people call it Potter-land.

Not a name issue, but my pet peeve is when people (especially the media) refer to it as a separate theme park.
