    Actually AK's Dinosaur is an Indiana Jones clone. Same ride vehicle, in fact the track layout/ pathway is the same, Disney just themed it differently.

    For those wanting a "Cars Land" at WDW -- don't they already have something similar -- namely, the recently-renovated "Test Track"?

    Seriously -- the Florida park doesn't have to have everything -- that's the kind of stuff that gives each place its' own unique identity.

    And now that Disney owns the Star Wars franchise (with no restrictions imposed by cross-town rival parks), I would expect a major expanision of the SW franchise at DHS...

    I have to say as the mother of both a son and a daughter, all of these new possibilites sound great. There is so much more of girls at DW right now, we're getting to the point that we need to plug Universal in to keep things "even". So Star Wars, Avatar or Cars all make really good sense. (My son doesn't like pirates, which is all Disney really has for boys.)

    Here's my opinion: Cars Land feels "west". I like that it's a California thing. Keep it there. Re-theme the boring race cars in Tomorrow Land to be the Pixar Cup and maybe add a few touches here or there, but let CA have Cars Land. Does Adventures by Disney do a Route 66 trip? If not, why not?

    Avatar Land: My kids really don't know that movie. The ride itself will need to be really interesting for them. I'm sure it can be, if done right. Have no problem with it, but really miss FOLK. Never really understood why the movie was so popular. Hated Titanic.

    Star Wars: I was exactly my kids age when Star Wars came out. (8) I think this is an excellent biz idea. So many of my contemporaries are raising their kids on Star Wars. My kids know it just from Disney and both own light sabers and lego sets. They've seen a few of the movies and Star Tours is on their short list of favorite rides. Disney really can't go wrong here. This is a project that would rain $$. Seriously. And Florida + space makes sense. There is so much potential here it's crazy.

    That's funny...because the 1980s simulator vans is my main problem with star tours...dodge caravans on a stick.

    I would hope that they use Isaac Newton's principles for the next star wars "thrill rides"...not smoke and mirror parlor tricks like 3D glasses and computerized herky jerky movement.

    That reminds me...where did this latest "big announcement" rumor come from?

    There seems to be one about every 3 months...but the construction history at WDW since AK opened has not been anywhere close to that impressive.

    People say they can't have an Indiana Jones ride because Dinosaur is basically the same ride system. That hasn't stopped Universal from putting in a Transformers ride, some say it's exactly the same ride layout or very similar to Spider-Man.:)

    Ok...so I made a (rookie) mistake and actually clicked on the link...

    Are you SERIOUS?!

    A 22 year old CP from Miami?

    Huh? What? Ehhh?

    let me say this...for the 1,000 time:

    CAST MEMBERS KNOW NOTHING.

    never did, never will...they are low level, interchangeable cogs in the machine who are paid to service, not to think.

    There are two type of cast:
    Current and Former Cast that accept this as truth (such as the moron at my keyboard)

    Current and Former Cast that don't accept it...also defined by Merriam Webster as "delusional"


    the only thing i can say about this "source" is that he/she seems to have some web skill and the blog is nicely designed/ layout...

    still no information worth reading...but at least theres that.

    Geez...can't believe i fell for this one. Must have a touch of the flu or something:sick:

    I agree with the above statement. The only way a cast member at that level will ever know anything is if that change will be effecting that cast member's work. Even when this happens not all the details are given.

    With WDWNews, this is what I'm interested in. I wonder how credible his sources are. I won't believe it until they announce it.

    And even then....until they start vertical construction, it's not a given.

    Hyperion Wharf, Eagle Pines, Disney's DC Hotel, etc.

    Cast Members might not be told a lot, but I think we're all reaching for the stars and our definition of "big" might be different from the cast member's. Also, a different cast member in this thread said the announcement is something to do with Magic Kingdom - so, given the new Fantasyland changes that are occurring, it must be something about the Pirate game (can't think of the name) or something along those lines. I think we should be lowering our expectations and think along the lines of an enhancement vs. new land or rides.
