Avatar Land will be amazing
 
I know the future Avatar land is not popular amongst Disney fans. I think once its open it will be mind blowing.

The plans to move TFOTLK to Africa is awesome. The path from Africa to area becoming avatarand is also cool. Whatever goes in that space is better than camp Minnie Mickey.

Lets hope the ride they come up with is better than anything in new fantasyland.

Agree. The main E ticket needs to be top notch. I have been seeing concepts of a sorin on steroids type ride, that looks nice. I was actually hoping for a boat type attraction using ride technology of dinosaur and indy. In the plans there is a boat type ride, it would great they use that concept. I am glad FOTK is rumored of relocating, hear that theater was a temp anyhow due to a potential beastly kingdom.

Two rides and some nice theming is all I have seen so far. The soarin type ride would be extremely popular. It would suck up a lot of FP+ reservations.

I hope for some nice concept art soon, we should see some this year. I think now there is some pressure in what universal is doing as of late.

ChrisFL 01-05-2013 11:53 PM

I still give it about a 25% chance of actually happening

You would think, but I wonder sometimes.

I guess I better watch the movie.

Avatar is not even in my top 25 favorite movies. When I seen it in 3D in the theaters I found it more of a attraction that put you on the edge of your seat. When it came out on blue ray I fell asleep half way through it. Great visuals could make this land great.

My favorite rumor about this project is that of a flying type roller coaster. Given the role of flight in the film, they could really create a unique experience with that coaster type and some fancy tech, I'm really hoping they'll break out of the mold they've created in recent years.

It is my opinion that Disney hasn't produced anything to match or exceed Spider Man at Universal from a technology standpoint. It debuted 13 years ago. Since then, Universal has created yet another ride, Harry Potter, that hasn't been matched or exceeded by Disney.

I gather that the new Fantasy Land refurb is supposed to be Disney's answer to Harry Potter Land. Although it will be a great addition to the park, I don't see it as meeting nor exceeding that which Universal created.

What Avatar Land has going against it is that few people have the connection to Avatar that they do to Harry Potter. It was wildly popular in the theaters, but never had that same lasting connection to the audience. That is why I feel an investment in Star Wars would be money better spent. Not only could Disney meet the standard set by Universal, but it could also exceed it in a big way.

Yet, barring a switch over to a Star Wars land, I am in agreement that whatever they cook up has to be mind blowing.

Went to Fantasyland preview in Nov. what a boring bust that is. Very pretty but will never set foot in it again. IMHO a waste of space can only see interest in 6 or 7 and under. Mermaid like Nemo and the Story thing, would never wait again to do that. I hope the "roller coaster" is at least like Thunder but not hopeful:confused3

I agree with the FLE being a waste of space and $400 million. Wife and daughter loved it, however we have yet to see the mine train and maybe surprised. Star Wars land at Disney Hollywood studios would be a strong answer for universal and I'm sure we will see this soon.

If that....

Avatar did nothing for me at all however, if Disney does it right it could be amazing. I agree Star Wars would draw more crowds and be a better answer for the competitions Harry Potter. Haven't seen new Fantasy Land yet and hope I'm not disappointed when I do.
