Mabe they were joking about it being in Utah since it's probably pushing the CM parking further away?

You may want to check where you think Camp Minnie Mickey is.

The northern 2/3rd of the safari area is the only area THAT close to the border of RCID (WDW) property.

Camp Minnie Mickey is in the southwest quadrant of the park, where Festival of the Lion King is currently (but it is being moved to make room). It is about a kilometer and a half from the edge of the AK down there to the Orange Lake property, with AKL between.

It's easier to see on Google Earth with Borders enabled (although there appears to be a data error on the border to the west of AKL...) With Google Earth, you can see how the Orange Lake Property cuts in eastward towards the safari area.

Getting back on topic :-)

The park is bounded by West Savannah Drive, although it could be pushed back.. but there is the big backstage entrance facility right to the west of Camp MM.

I think it's posisble they want the parking space located south of Camp MM and may want to push that back to the west side of Savannah Drive... also they will need a big construction staging area yet to be defined. Between those two maybe they do need some extra space and acquired it from the East Orange Lake properties.

I believe that "parking area", along with the Lion King building and Camp Minnie Mickey, is EXACTLY where it is going.

But those areas are nowhere near the Orange Lake property line, except to the northwest, and that's too far from the staging area I think. The problem is that W. Savannah Drive is bounded to the west by water and a larger cast member area where they would likely need to get to the CMM/Avatar area. Beyond that is a TON of room to the west between there and AKL.

There is plenty of space in general. I see no reason for any acquisition of property from Orange Lake for any of this. They may have plans for something else. Or maybe the rumor got turned around, and Orange Lake acquired from Disney? Disney has been de-annexing land for other purposes (Four Seasons, the dirt piles known as Flamingo Crossings - which is immediately north of Orange Lake...

That's where they are putting the cast member parking. They got a great deal on the land.
