And...I would like to add that in my opinion, Tomorrow Land is in major need of an over haul. I love some of the attractions but it is starting to look drab and run down or old. Hope they can update it soon.

There shouldn't be anything disappointing about the new fantasyland, I am sure it is beautiful and the attractions only have to be better than pooh play ground, Snow White dark ride, and toon town meet and greet to be positive.

Does this answer WWoHP? Definitely not. My teens and I are interested in seeing the theming especially the BOG restaurant rooms. But the rides and stories with Belle aren't really calling us. The mine train looks like the barnstormer to me.

I never had the slightest interest in seeing the movie, and I have even less interest in seeing it at WDW. Just MHO.
However I LOVE FOTLK!

Moving it to Africa will be a welcome addition.

Personally, I dislike the idea of Pandora being in the Animal Kingdom. I just think that the Animal Kingdom serves more of an environmental, "today" purpose than fantasy. I think it would fit better at DHS. That's just my opinion

Besides that, I think Avitarland will be stunning wherever they put it. I agree that they should call it Pandora instead of Avitarland. I was kind of hoping that Carsland in California would be called Radiator Springs, but I guess they are starting to get into the habit of just throwing "land" at the end of every name and calling it good. Not a good habit.

I think the reason they go with "land" attached to an area is because it creates higher recognition for the general public. If I tell my mom, 72, we should take the grandkids to "Radiator Springs" she will be all "huh?" Even though she has seen the movie but is not a Disney-nut. But if I say Carsland, she will know what I am talking about since my nephew has a million Cars shirts and toys.

Asia - Africa - oasis- discovery Island and Pandora. That sounds better! But alas we have Dino Land so I guess Avatar Land provides nice symmetry. Give me some new attractions and I will spend most of my time in DAK. I like it there.

I hope you are right.

My personal opinion is that there are better things they could do that would fit better in the park: Australia, Beastly Kingdom or Mysterious Island

I wished for BK or mythical kingdom, however I am glad its based off of mythical movie. Still hope in the future avatar land will have its two attractions then they can very easily add a non avatar mythical attraction any call the area mythical kingdom

With Disney commiting 400-500 million, this should be amazing! Yes the vertic is in FLE is a hit for the little ones, now this Avatar project must be a hit for everyone.

I guess we will have to wait and see.

Insiders are saying that Avatar is dead and instead AK is getting Dagobah and Naboo.

You can always have, sigh, Jar Jar Binks I'm still excited for the SW stuff, but it doesn't really fit into AK (then again Avatar really didn't either).
