    ~Too late! I have already claimed OZ for Epcot's Future World. OMG... the Emerald City, Yellow Brick Road, Ruby Slippers and think about the shows that could compliment OZ! Something like Wicked would be fabulous!!! Disney put the OZ garden in Epcot to let me know, they loved my idea! They're working on it. :rotfl:

    ~In addition to Avatarland, Disney should explore a land themed around Merlin, the greatest wizard of all!!! Not to mention, the dragons!

    This sounds about right! We know about the 3D Soarin' ride and the boat ride, but the third attraction is a mystery.

    Hey, wait a minute... Cheater!! You can't suggest that! That's what they originally had planned for AK!

    ~Wow, Mr. Morgan.... I would never think of doing such a thing. I am a *good* bad girl! :rotfl: Honestly, I was not aware of any plans to incorporate Merlin the Wizard into AK. All I can say to that is great minds.... LOL. :goodvibes

    Was it here that I heard about Disney developing a sensor that they could put in the soil under a live plant that will " know" which part of the plant is being touched? Somewhere I heard this. They will produce music and lighting effects ...I'll have to search...

    Nor against the tech or even the attractions, just the source and potentially the theme

    Theme will be conservation and living in harmony with nature

    ~Wow, that's just amazing! Thanks so much for sharing this, beer dave!!! :goodvibes

    ~I totally agree, twebber55! :goodvibes

    ~I don't understand this, but I totally respect your opinion. Hopefully, once more details are released, you'll start to come around and embrace the concept a little more. I know you love AK, so do I, but AK could use a few more attractions. We'll see. :goodvibes

    ~Yes, I agree. But, the funny thing is this won't even matter to the majority of theme park guests! No one is thinking about "conservation" when they're on Everest, Kali or Dinosaur!

    As much as I don't look that foward to avatar land, and many people aren't too excited about it, I'm excited to see the technology. You know disney is going to make it advanced as possible, and the theming will be great! I can't wait to see what they come up with.

    I think this is the point all of the pros are trying to make-- the concept behind avatar has so many incredible possibilities--- things that will be NEW...

    ~LOL. You are too funny! :rotfl: I'm glad you like it! Anyway, I can't wait for more details on this.

    ~YES!!! I totally agree, beer dave. I just can't take anymore clam-mobiles, really. :( And, I heard Ariel's hair falls off all the time and the ride has already suffered it's share of significant down time. I hope it's not true, but that's what I've read! Please, Disney no more, lol. :rotfl::goodvibes

    ~We all know Disney can do better! :goodvibes

    I just dont think aliens fit in with the theme myself

    plus, i did not really care for the movie. Old story and dull characters

    Buts not to say the attractions won't be fun. Just wished they did something else

    Avatar land is not what is needed. Expand on what they have now with animals and attractions. Austria would be a great addition to the park with many opportunities for new animals and rides.

    I know that AVATAR is an oppurtunity to close off Africa, Rafiki, and parts of Asia off at 5:00 etc, and keep the park open much later.

    An animal based area has a lot of expenses over time, where ride/show based attractions, have up front costs, but the cost to maintain the attraction over time is a bit more palatable.
