I know the one sound stage in HWS where the phineas and ferb and cars m&g is was supposed to be getting something in there... we were told this as a CM when getting the tour of HWS. Could be finally unveiling it?? Just a thought

great way of looking at it.......give it a chance

I've never seen the movie that the ride "Dinosaur" is based on, but it's one of my favorite rides at AK.

There's also no movie around Expedition Everest, Safari, or Kali River Rapids, but they are all great attractions. Quite honestly we could go on and on about lands or attractions at WDW that were not built around a movie.

I don't understand why all of a sudden that because some people didnt like the movie, than this land will be a failure. Pandora was visually stunning, Disney has the opportunity to do some real theming here that will blow people's mind. The theming alone will make this is a success.

Oh don't take what I said the wrong way. I completely support them and hope it turns out great because then there will be less people in the rest of the park

I'll assume you are a big fan of Song of the South if you ride Splash Mountain. If not, then I don't understand why you wouldn't go to Avatarland even if you didn't like the movie.

^This. I'm not a huge Avatar fan, but the idea of walking through the forests that were once only imagined through computer animation is very, very intriguing. Disney has the money and the people to create more immersive experiences than other parks, so it's obvious that Cameron would choose them to host Avatar in theirs.

I don't think that's a very good comparison: all those other rides mentioned have at least a frame of reference here on Earth, where even if people have never seen the movie (Splash and Dinosaur) or there is no movie (Everest), people get what its all about, and they make sense with whats around it. People know that Everest is a tall mountain. They know that the Yeti is a mythical creature. The rest falls into place because there's a pre-existing cultural context.

That context is void with Avatar. You either saw the movie and know what its about, or you didn't see the movie and know that it made a lot of money for Mr. Titanic. That doesn't mean that it won't be good - but it could definitely damage the popularity of the area.

I was at Universal and rode Harry Potter with one of the 6 people on the planet who never read the books OR saw the movies. He thought the ride was "neat" and the ride mechanism was "cool" but wanted to go to another section of the park right after riding it. The immersion failed because he had no real context for what he was seeing and experiencing.

I've never read the books or seen the movie (Harry Potter or Avatar actually) but I would visit the land/attractions. Though we would rather just stay on Disney property, and not visit Universal, so we probably won't be seeing Harry Potter. I'm not a big fan of the genre of Avatar, but will definitely visit the land and give the attractions and the area a chance.

How people on here feel about Avatar is how I generally feel about Harry Potter. I have no interest in the books or movies. That said, as I mentioned above, if I were in Universal, I would visit the attractions.

Quite honestly I think that's reaching....

I don't want to be taken as someone that's a big cheerleader of this project, I think money could be spent on something else. But I don't get all the backlash from it, you don't need a frame of reference or a "connection to earth" to see how visually stunning something can be.

I think some of you are over analyzing this thing to death. If the rides are good and Disney does as good of a job on Pandora theming as they did on Radiator Springs, then it'll be a hit.

i actually never saw the movie or read the books before visiting HP and had a great time because the theming was incredible and the e ticket was the best e ticket i had ever been on and you know what i did when i came home i watched all the movies

like others have said you guys are way over analyzing this, if its well themed and has a great ride or two it will be a hit simple as that

Did the Rush cover artist ever sue the people who created Avatar. I wonder if it makes Disney nervous in any way.
