FOTLK is moving to Africa. So it IS being moved because of Avatarland but it's not "out".

It will be a new cast in a new/updated show.

I heard a rumor FOTLK, as we know it, is closing early Jan 2014. For a fact, they are building a new FOTLK facility behind Tusker House. I have only heard rumors about Avatarland. However, the large amount of space vacated by FOTLK could mean it's being set aside for something big (like Avatarland?).

Re: "Lights Motor Action out Cars Land In." I heard this rumor. Then I heard a new rumor that the first rumor was wrong. Meanwhile, the Backlot tour is undergoing refurb from Jan to March 2014, and a Cars Land would most likely involve that space, too.

Here's the O-fficial word on Avatar coming to AK. Not rumor ... fact via Disney announcement. I think I've seen projected opening dates (on other sites) not till 2017 though.

As others have said, FotLK is definitely moving, but not permanently closing, to make room.

There's been about two dozen threads on the Avatar land expansion and how people just didn't love the movie(I fell asleep in the theater),as well as why is Disney investing in such a project.My opinion is that even though I am not a fan of the movie I can still enjoy the area and attractions if they're well done.They definitely have something to work from because even though I found the movie dull the landscapes and atmosphere could turn out tremendous in a theme park.The land is coming guaranteed,they've even showed what the attractions will likely be from the art they've put out.One attraction appears to be a boat ride and the other one a Soarin style ride flying through the planet.

I think its pretty cool. Not a fan of the movie, but Disney is superbly skilled in bringing imagination to life. Please fellow Dis'ers, don't forget that
I am very excited to see Disney work its magic and have us enter the world of Avatar. I have a feeling janitors will be in high demand on opening day.. cleaning up all the minds Disney is going to blow!

Maybe the existing cast doesn't want to sit around without a job for like six months. They probably won't tell any current cast they can't come out for auditions for the new show. If they were lucky enough to have some of the old cast come back out it would be great for Disney but it's really not fair to expect these people to just sit around and wait. They are talented enough performers. They are likely to be snapped up once they're free.

I thought cars land was a fact. They made so much money in California it only made sense to bring it to Florida. It's supposed to be in HS. Avatarland is a fact too. I could care less about Avatar though.

Avatar is under development by Disney, who has said so--making it a fact. CarsLand has had no such official acknowledgement--making it fiction.
