Nor against the tech or even the attractions, just the source and potentially the theme

~I don't understand this, but I totally respect your opinion. Hopefully, once more details are released, you'll start to come around and embrace the concept a little more. I know you love AK, so do I, but AK could use a few more attractions. We'll see.

~Yes, I agree. But, the funny thing is this won't even matter to the majority of theme park guests! No one is thinking about "conservation" when they're on Everest, Kali or Dinosaur!

As much as I don't look that foward to avatar land, and many people aren't too excited about it, I'm excited to see the technology. You know disney is going to make it advanced as possible, and the theming will be great! I can't wait to see what they come up with.

I think this is the point all of the pros are trying to make-- the concept behind avatar has so many incredible possibilities--- things that will be NEW...

~YES!!! I totally agree, beer dave. I just can't take anymore clam-mobiles, really. And, I heard Ariel's hair falls off all the time and the ride has already suffered it's share of significant down time. I hope it's not true, but that's what I've read! Please, Disney no more, lol.

~We all know Disney can do better!

I just dont think aliens fit in with the theme myself

plus, i did not really care for the movie. Old story and dull characters

Buts not to say the attractions won't be fun. Just wished they did something else

Avatar land is not what is needed. Expand on what they have now with animals and attractions. Austria would be a great addition to the park with many opportunities for new animals and rides.

I know that AVATAR is an oppurtunity to close off Africa, Rafiki, and parts of Asia off at 5:00 etc, and keep the park open much later.

An animal based area has a lot of expenses over time, where ride/show based attractions, have up front costs, but the cost to maintain the attraction over time is a bit more palatable.
