Eh...I even enjoyed the movies (though I haven't seen them since they were released...) and I'm not too excited about it. I'll go...but I won't be lined up and counting down the days.

I think they could do so much better.

Avatar has one movie. They're really going to base an entire Land off of something that may or may not perform well over two sequels?!!? I would build on the recent acquisition of Star Wars. THAT has the same level of devotion and background material as HP. IMHO.
~Star Wars Land will be at DHS! They already have Star Tours & that huge walker thing set up, so it makes sense to expand from there.

~I read so many reports on how the New Fantasyland is beautiful but somewhat underwhelming. I don't care about two dumbos -- splashing with Casey Jr. -- eating with Beast & story time with Belle. I read somewhere that the Nemo ride is more advanced and impressive than the new The Little Mermaid ride -- and don't get me started on her hair!!! Everyone is patiently waiting for the mine train, it's expected to be a hit, so just go there and enjoy that.

~But, leave Avatarland to those of us who desire something different -- something innovative & exhilarating. I am counting on James Cameron to push Disney Imagineers to think outside of the box & go beyond the norm!

~I wrote this before, but here is my ambitious "dream" for Disney World -

~AK: Avatarland & Excalibur -- is there any wizard greater than Merlin? Disney can create some kind of "great dragon" feature to fit the AK theme!

~DHS: Star Wars Land & Pixar Land, a little of both will create a nice balance with something for everyone!

~Epcot: The Land of OZ & Alice's Wonderland! People would come from every corner of the globe to walk on the yellow brick road and see the Emerald City, the wicked witch, good witch, munchkins & ruby slippers! And, there is so much content in Alice's Wonderland that would be so amazing!

~Unfortunately, I don't have hope for anything Marvel!!!
