I think I would rather see a whole LAND dedicated to the animals and culture of Australia in DAK than a pavillion in EPCOT. The cities of Australia are much the same as many cities here in the US, so for me it's the "outback", the animals, and the Aboriginal culture of Australia that I find most interesting.

Actually - no retraction needed here.

Well, I've been told that any Australian-themed additions that were originally proposed for Epcot have now been placed on hold. Given that it's far more likely that the Imagineers will want to use that continent's creatures & culture as the jumping-off point for a brand-new "land" at DAK.

I agree he doesn't need one for this story but I am still cracking up over the upgrade the servers comment!

Personally I think it would make a wonderful pavilion and I would love to see that developed for Epcot. And an Australia area (or Oceana in general) at AK sounds wonderful too. Platypus and wombats and Tasmanian Devils..WOOHOO! I have never seen any of these (and there may be a very good reason for that. Perhaps they are not animals that would adapt to captivity). Koalas and more roos. YAY

For us AK is already a two day stop-and-smell-the-roses park but I would love to see more there.
