I for one would not mind them putting it in Florida, and I would want RSR in tact.

As far as Luigi's goes, THAT's the ride they could skip in Florida! We still had the beachballs - and I thought they added a bit of fun to what was ultimately a pretty boring ride. It gave the ride an objective - which was to try and scoop up a beachball. Otherwise it would be just leaning and trying to slowly move around the floor. I agree, more than a 10 minute wait makes that one completely skippable.
Waking up that early was brutal, but it was so worth it for the early entry. And I was glad we got to see the standby queue at least once, since we used single rider the rest of the time.

Oh yes, if Cars Land becomes a reality in WDW, I sure do hope they leave Luigi's behind. Nice concept, but not a great ride at all!

I'm reading a big thread about Avatarland over on the theme parks board right now. I just canNOT get myself excited over it! I really did not enjoy Avatar seeing it after all the hype surrounding it. And I don't think it fits in with AK, nor do I think it will bring over as many guests to AK as they are thinking it will. Hopefully it quietly goes the way of Hyperion Wharf at DTD...

It would be really awesome if they did something like Cars Land in DHS...another area to be family friendly at that park. DH and I loved DHS as just a couple and spent a lot of our WDW time there, but now with DS we find we don't spend much time there because the only ride he can do that is not 20+ minutes long and killing his attention span is TSM. Hopefully this year we can try our more shows there to give us more to do in that park.

I think he would too. Hopefully in a few years we can take a trip back out that way so he can fully experience it!

Completely agree and share the same feelings with you about Avatarland. When they first announced the project, it just didn't seem like a good fit. James Cameron (as much as I love most of his movies, Avatar not so much) has such a singular vision of his own projects that I didn't think he would be able to mesh and work well with the Disney Imagineers. Disney has such a huge cache of Pixar movies to tap into for its future projects, I would rather have them spend the money and time on those rather than Avatar.

I"ve heard it's been pushed back already because Cameron & Disney have 'creative differences.' You think? I never thought it was a good idea because while there are sequels planned, right now there is only one movie. It may not have any staying power. It's not like Harry Potter. A better option would have been Lord of the Rings but I don't see how that would tie in with AK either. As long as they don't build a Twilightland, we're good.

Not to go too far OT, but I don't get all the dislike for "Avatarland". The movie wasn't great, but the concept for Animal Kingdom is actually pretty fitting - you do realize that "Avatar" was essentially "Pocahantas" with Sci-Fi trappings.

I look at it this way...most Disney fans wanted "Beastly Kingdom" built at AK, right? Well, if done right, this is essentially "Beastly Kingdom", just with different versions of Dragons and Unicorns.

I think Disney made a big mistake announcing that deal without any details or concept art. However, they wanted an investment of that size (half a billion $) to have some sort of name recognition. And not just in the US, worldwide. "Beastly Kingdom" peaks very little interest, "Avatar" at least gets people interested. In the end it will be quality of the product that gets you going and going back. If Universal had bought "Harry Potter" and then put up a shoddy park, no one would be going by now.

Carsland just looks absolutely incredible. I would definitely love to see it added to WDW. Anything to add more attractions that can be enjoyed by the whole family would be a nice addition to the Studios for sure.

I'm glad that you were able to get there early enough to take a couple of rides on RSR before the line got really backed up.

As for the Avatar discussion... well, let's just say I'm not that excited about that prospect. I really didn't even like the movie. I guess Disney's gonna do what they wanna do though. I just hope that if they do go forward with it, they make it something awesome, but I would definitely rather see Disney or Pixar movies represented in the parks.

Oh man, would I love to see a LOTR land/park ANYWHERE! Love it, probably even a little more than Harry Potter. I would love to walk through the Shire, the mines of Moria, Mordor, etc. That would be AMAZING! Doesn't fit with AK for sure, probably would be better suited for Universal, but only if they could go big with it, I think. I actually enjoyed Twilight for what it is (definitely NOT a literary masterpiece or a memorable film, but enjoyable), but Twilightland is an absolute NO NO!!

I agree, it's the same basic conservation story as Pocahontas, so why not do something with Pocahontas? I get it, Pocahontas is not as cool as trying to recreate Pandora. But I guess I would rather see the long rumored Australia section of the park come to fruition WAY more than Avatar. I just didn't think the movie was all that great to need or deserve a section of a Disney park, regardless of its message. But that's just my opinion, of course. I guess the powers that be at Disney must have some insight on this being a good idea or they wouldn't be pouring so much money into it. I guess what bugs me the most is that I could see them doing so much more with the money that is instead being put into an Avatar attraction/land.

Totally agree on the Studios. It used to be our favorite park after MK until we brought DS for the first time and realized that aside from shows and TSM, there wasn't a lot we could enjoy as a family. I'm hoping DS will at least sit through a show or two this year to make visiting DHS worthwhile.

I agree, I would rather see them do more with their own library of movies and characters instead of putting a lot of money and time into Avatar. But again, that's just my opinion. And I hope like you that if they do move forward with Avatar, they at least make it something spectacular instead of thrown together and mediocre.

I would go to Twilightland for one reason and one reason only. If they had a Jacob look alike that posed for pictures with his shirt off. Picture taken and I'm out!

I'm here and caught up! It's been a wild few weeks...anyways, glad your trip out west was great. Sorry that y'all came home to a hurricane/tropical storm. I was thinking about y'all when it came to shore and hoping that y'all were ok. My best friend is a doctor in NOLA. She did her undergrad and masters at Tulane before coming back to GA for med school...they just moved back this summer when she graduated. Anyways, she helped evacuate Tulane when Katrina came and then did search/rescue in the weeks following. I was worried about them and really the timing of this storm. The anniversary of Katrina is tough and then when you put a new storm on top of that it can be a lot. Thankfully, they were ok and got by with little damage. I'm sorry about your parents house. Glad they are ok!

Back to Disney...your Carsland pictures are wonderful! Oh my goodness they did an incredible job with it. My husband was like we really need to plan a trip out there so we can see it in person. Are you getting excited about your WDW trip? It's just around the corner along with Paxton's birthday.

This is a very interesting argument for AvLand. I concur.

Thanks for your thoughts. Isaac really did a number on my parents like Katrina did 7 years ago. In Katrina, they lost their business. My mom's daycare caught on fire, and because there was no water pressure, the firefighters couldn't put it out and the building burned to the ground. Seven years later, their house floods for the first time in 27 years! They have most of the work done on their end, and then their friend who does home repair & remodeling is taking over with his portion of the job, so hopefully they are back in their house soon.

I think everyone needs to see Cars Land in person, they did such an amazing job with every last detail! Plus, it's an excuse to take another Disney trip, who doesn't want that?!

I'm definitely getting excited about the trip, although I feel like it's sneaking up on me sometimes and I don't feel prepared! With Paxton's birthday party coming up, I feel like I need to get past all of that planning and then I can really focus on nailing down the final things for WDW.

Sorry, I am trying to get through it before we go to WDW, but I don't know if that's going to happen with everything I have had and will have going on!!!

I hear you on things sneaking up on you! AG's birthday is 3.5 weeks post Christmas. Every year I tell myself to get it planned before hand and every year I'm like let me just get past Christmas and then I can focus on his birthday! Inevitably I feel rushed at the end! Oh, well. Maybe I'll get my act together this year since I am not pregnant nor do I have a new baby to use as an excuse like the last two years.
