Does this mean FOTLK might be open longer? The rumor was it would be closing to make way for the new development.

I've said this before:

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

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

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!

Yup!

By all accounts Cameron is a piece of work. "Control freak, meet Disney machine..." I really would have been shocked if this went smoothly.

This is the reason they didn't bite on Harry Potter. JK is the same way.

Thank Heavens...honestly that was a terrible idea. I get that the movie was popular, but really it would have gotten stale so fast! There are sooo many other better ideas

For me, AK has always been about the beauty of Earth--real Earth--not fictional beauty. That is why I do not like the project. I have actually not seen the movie because it does not interest me. It looks creepy. I am sure it has a beautiful storyline and the special affects are probably amazing, but it has no business being in a nature park. DHS would be a better fit as that park is more about movie-making and it could tie in better there. I would much rather see more live animals (such as those from Australia like I mentioned earlier) placed in AK.

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

At this point, the movie has been out too long, it's not fresh, and it's not a movie that has developed much of a cult following or has any really strong Disney ties and magic to it. So basically, I think it's lacking the Disney vibe, and the idea isn't fresh since the movie came out years ago.

my 2 cents.

At first i thought it was a cool idea but after thinking about ti more I'm kind of hopping that it is not done. If anything, Disney should focus on getting Pleasure Island back to something that is "pleasurable" to visit.

One of the BIG problems Disney has dragging their feet on things. Avatar was out SOOOOO long ago. While there IS a sequel in the works I find it hard to place a fictional planet in a Theme Park centered on "earths" beauty, nature, and animals.

Cars , Brave, Avengers, MORE Lion King! Oz the great and Powerful, national treasure
