Dinoland is one of the most detailed and themed lands in any park
again this is all based on opinion...ill repeat
all time gross number 1
all time blue ray number 1
high viewing numbers on FX first time shown
i have yet to see a reason why this land cant be amazing
If Disney had potter everyone would be excited. They have Avatar and many are annoyed. How's that for a reason?
Like I said. I'm willing to see what they do. I don't care about the movie but there may be cool attractions. I just think I would be more interested in a Beastly Kingom, Australia or Mysterious Island
The carnival area of Chester and Hester's Dino Rama cannot be considered among WDW greatest accomplishments.
Many are not annoyed just a few. Protesters are always the loudest. Many disney fans made fun of uni for getting hp.
Pushing for BK, MI or Aus. is kind of like peeing into the wind. They've all been considered and overwhelmingly rejected by Disney for reasons we'll never know.
MI was a basic concept that never was feasible.
Australia is what I'd personally like. More animals, more mother nature, maybe a cool ride, more cerebral, Disney will never go for it.
I think BK would have been a terrible mess that was based on nothing BUT because Avatar is real, much of that concept or imagination can be utilized. If you think BK had potential I cannot possibly see your aversion to Aatar.
Australia would be great. As a new land or replace Rafiki Planet Watch?
I didn't say that. ASll I said it is one of the most detailed and themed places in a park. People just don't notice
My thoughts on Australia. See if it can fit by Nemo and build out from there towards Everest and the water
Build a small harbor with sea lions, shops and eateries
Eucalyptus Forest path with tree kangaroos, lorikeets, playtpus and of course, koalas
Meet n greet with Perry?
About 3 years ago all of the major news net works in central FL reported that Australia land coming to DAK. Wondering how close Disney to develop this land
My main problem with AvatarLand is that the other movies have not even come out yet. What if the other two are not as wonderful, or maybe people start to not like them so much. I dislike it when people try to get in on a franchise when it's not even complete yet. I also understand that it probably won't be complete until the full trilogy comes out, but why invest until you're positive?
Just like how the Harry Potter books were not complete when the movies started, I felt like that was why they went from "happy series" in the first two, almost three films to, "dark and angsty".
Isn't this an example of taking a chance and being foreward thinking as we all ask Disney to do?
Taking a chance on an investment is the most simplistic form of investing. If they wait until everyone is positive, the price goes up.
TBH, I think my main problem is more with the actual movies than with what Disney wants to do with it. I just don't get the hype (though I do agree if Disney put effort into it, it could be an amazing 'land'). I watched it and seriously felt as though I was watching Pocahontas with real people. That's another debate though
. I understand, there is much to marvel at in Dino land.
~Exactly, the "tons" of merchandise sales cater to a captive audience and are specific to WWoHP. Ollivanders is the only place out of the entire Universal resort that sells the wands and other HP stuff -- not to mention, it's unrealistically small (to stay in line with the story) -- so of course, there would be an hour long wait.
~The same can be said for Disney, just imagine if mouse ears were sold in one tiny store out of the whole complex, you would witness the same "frenzy." My point is the crazy demand for Harry Potter items inside the parks does not reflect the demand for Harry Potter merchandise outside of the parks. Harry Potter is iconic but it's not all that relevant today -- there are no new books or movies in the works. HP has a strong fan base, that can carry Universal. Disney has a stronger fan base and can and will successfully carry Avatar.
~Anyway, it really doesn't have to be "one" or the "other." I'm not an Avatar or Harry Potter "fan." I'm a theme park fan and I intend to enjoy both. I feel confident in saying, I represent the "majority" outside of the DIS.
~I don't understand this statement. It sounds like you're saying, Avatarland can not be successful because you don't care for the movie. I don't care for the movie either, but I know Avatarland has enormous potential to be every bit of fabulous!
~This statement is way way off. What would a convention, ten years from now, have to do with the success of Avatarland?!? "Harry Potters fan base" is too weak of an argument to demonstrate why Avatar not be a successful addition to Animal Kingdom.
***sigh*** Besides, sounding like a broken record, I totally agree with you! Harry Potter is done, there are no more books and no more movies in the pipeline & popularity of the franchise on the current market has significantly waned & will continue to diminish as time goes on.
~Universal is the only thing that keeps Harry Potter relevant or some would say, Harry Potter keeps Universal relevant, maybe it's a little of both. My point is -- none of this matters. Avatarland has the potential to be a huge success for Disney. We'll just have to wait & see.
~Pandora will be fabulous! There is so much Disney can use to create an amazing theme park experience. I am very excited to see what Cameron and Disney's Imagineers come up with!
but the theme is carnival midway
yep im at a point where i would really like to start a new thread to discuss avatar/pandora and not discuss why people dont like it
I think Disney couold do some amazing things with Avatarland / Pandora. Im not a Star Wars fan but I do like Avatar and Harry Potter. I have not been to Universal to see TWWOHP I also have not spent any time on star wars at DHS and we spend a fair amount of time at the park. However I would def spend time checking out Avatarland / Pandora and would be excited to see this! From my experience with friends visiting Disney some have gone to see TWWOHP and only spend 1-2 days at Universal just for the fact its there.... then spend 5-6 days at WDW parks, btw none are huge Star Wars fans. I think they would also like to see Disney do something with Avatar. So many people enjoy different movies and Avatar is a well liked movie but just not a huge fan base but could this change if Disney had a successful Avatarland? I think it could.
Any idea on when this is supposed to happen?
~LOL. Well, this thread is supposed to be the "Avatarland will be amazing" thread!!! So, I'm pretty sure that was the intent. We'll just have to do our best to stay on track. If you don't give up, I won't give up!!!
