In an article today from WDWMagic which was citing a story from IGN, it seems that the Avatarland project at WDW is being delayed for now, citing "creative differences between James Cameron and Walt Disney Imagineering,".

Here's The Source

That is what I am hoping for. I really do not see how that fits in with Disney. There are so many awesome movies they could do a lot with, why pick something like that anyway? Now, the cartoon Avatar the last Airbender...... Just kidding, but really.......

Let's hope they come up with a better idea than AVATARLAND

Now Carsland...that one I'm excited for!

And just became more plausible if this report is true, since some capital would likely free up.

Carsland looks amazing. I wish WDW had Carsland right now. I'm now planning a Disneyland and western states trip, mostly because of how awesome Carsland looks.

But I DON'T want a WDW Carsland that opens in 4-5 years! It's too far past the Cars (1) movie, DS will be too old...it won't be that magical.

I might reconsider my anti-WDW Carsland stance if they made a Doc's power slide experience

I've said this before:

Disney doesn't cancel projects. They just ignore them until everyone forgets about them.

I don't understand why everyone thinks Avatarland is such a dumb idea I'm not a fan of the movie myself but I think it fits in well with Disneys ideas of conservation and being less selfish about our planet, its a different spin on the obvious. Just my opinion. That said though, I'm not complaining about the delay!
