    just spitballing here but any thoughts on the new fantasy land dragon that was flying around the other day? what could it mean? my first thought was that it was a clue to something else they would do... maybe planning to go forth with the widely talked about "beastly kingdom" or something of that sort. i find it hard to link the dragon to avatarland.... any thoughts?

    At opening to FLE, my dh was told it was a one shot deal, and would not be repeated at WDW.

    True but then why would disney spend money to develop something to be used once

    I guarantee it's not for Beastly Kingdom. Beastly Kingdom already Exists (and in some was existed)

    I'm guessing that they wanted to make the flying dragon a regular feature but were not able to keep costs/maintenance low enough on it. They probably just wanted to see it once before they shelved the project so it didn't seem like a complete waste.

    On a caption in one of the videos Disney uploaded about the dragon it said it was just for the grand opening of new fantasyland but i would like it if they used it for more than just that.

    I heard that Disney had to file a large amount of paper from the FAA work to fly it. Disney liked to experiment. I am sure they would love to not put it on the shelf. I would not be surprised to see if pop up some wheree else down the road. Maybe for brief times, maybe something more permanent.

    Seems like it would be a perfect fit in an early evening 'Fantasmic' level show over at the new Avatarland in AK... They all flew dragons in Avatar didn't they?
