Disappointing...Lion King is for all ages..Avatar is not Disney & not for all ages. I had issues when they took the Tarzan show away. It was upbeat!

So sad to hear this. It's one of my favorite shows!

Oh, no, that means that we'll have less reason to spend time in the AK. The only things I like are the shows there. My dh, on the other hand, loves the safari and the animal trails as well.

Since nobody else has mentioned this...

How do we know this is actually going to happen?

Oh No! FOTLK is the best show on property! We will miss it so much. As far as Avatar goes, we enjoyed the movie, but are not that excited about the addition to AK. It seems to be Disney's effort to make up for not going with the Harry Potter theme.

Guess I'd better make sure I see it in October, just in case.
I agree...we missed it on our last trip in January, however I am making sure not to miss it on our upcoming trip .

So, when they were looking at the AK map to find a place for Avatarland, did someone accidentally put their coffee cup on top of Dinoland? How else was Dinoland spared?

Harry Potter wouldn't have made sense in Disney - Avatar has more common ground with Disney than HP .... and thats coming from an HP fan!

I'm allying myself with skepticism and I'm hoping this isn't true, I really wanted my mom to see this next year.

Who is the official source?

Explains why the show was very weakly performed last week when I went. Wow, let's see I go over to AK in the summer and do EE, the Safari, watch Nemo and LK, and ride Dinosaur because DD wants to. Love the trails, but way too hot in summer to do them. Maybe every 3 years or so when I go in the winter or spring...oh oops stopped going to WDW for every vacation as the expeience is getting less and less. I believe it is going to take more than Avatarland to get me back.
Planned correctly I can be in and out of AK by noon with takeout from Yak n Yeti still hot on plates in my AC'd OKW Villa.

Every time we have gone to see it the place is packed. IMHO FOTLK is a better show than Nemo.
