In this report we detail the area and amenities that would be available to, or perceived by guests to be part of the resort, regardless of the ownership entity, and whether the primary ownership group owns all parts of the “resort” or not. In many cases, hotel accommodations and/or entertainment elements are owned and controlled by groups separate from those owning the theme park.
