    I know there are a lot of people on both sides of the fence for this but what Disney rumor do you think should happen? Cars land as DHS or avatar land at AK?

    I think with Avatarland it is less of a rumor on the land and more of a rumor that an announced land isn't going to happen....

    Personally I think Parts of Carsland, and other talked about Pixar things to be added to a Pixar section of HS, before I would want to go to Pandora at AK.

    I would 100x much rather see Cars Land than Pandora. I know I'm in the minority but I like Animal Kingdom just the way it is.

    Yeah. I don't necessarily want pandora. I wouldn't mind cars attractions, I wouldn't put the full land tho, I don't think that's fair to DCA. A Pixar place that actually had more than toy story would be good

    I'm with you in the minority. :thumbsup2 I'm fine with AK as it is right now. I've never seen it as only a half-day park. I see HS as much more in need of improvement. Give me Cars Land and an overall expanded Pixar presence, but you can keep Avatar/Pandora.

    I cannot accept any park with a "hub and spoke" layout that has what amounted to at least two "dead end" non developed spots open when the park was opened as complete.

    Not if the still are largely open 15 years later as well.

    There is absolutely no case to be made that animal kingdom was ever laid out as originally planned. Or is "completed" in Disney's eyes. No sir/ma'am.

    And I'm not talkin about what my fellow Disney geekers cry out for...the famed "Beastly Kingdom"...

    I talking about this:
    The allstars, Coronado, blizzard beach, the wide world complex, and later AKL...all developed FOR animal kingdom. Without the plan to open a fourth, large gate (to rival MK and EPCOT), those don't get built.
    I'm talking about a zoological park that is far more expensive to run pound for pound than a traditional amusement park - Disney or otherwise.
    I'm talking about huge, ambitious park site...the largest layout/ available space by far...and that's not entirely because of the safari/ animal habitats.
    And I'm taking about largely no expansion on a park that you know they are spending a fortune on...and is the lowest attended. That makes no sense based on Disney's m.o.

    Neither...Pixarland! :D Ok...they can include Cars in Pixarland...but I don't think we need a duplicate Carsland at WDW and I really am not all that enthusiastic about Pandora coming to AK...

    I think I'm in the minority of people that wasn't really blown away with Avatar. Between the two, I'd rather have CarsLand. As far as AK goes, maybe another continent could be added? An Australia/Oceania section would be cool: koalas, dingos, kiwis, etc.

    Seems to me going with a more general Pixar Place over a very specific Cars Land would be a better idea. It would lend itself to refreshes much more easily.

    And really, isn't Cars one of the more not so good Pixar films? I would think it won't have the legs of other movies. How about a Monsters Inc ride where you get in your own door and ride through to have the door open to be "scared" by various monsters? Let's not forget about all the great Pixar shorts as well.

    From an attraction standpoint, I would go with cars.

    With that, I am in for any additional that may allow for AK to stay open later. It's so cool to be in the park after dark. How else can they show off all of those colors and landscapes. Still not completely sure Avatar is the best fit.

    In my opinion, Disney should not have signed that partnership for Avatar so not my favorite rumor.

    With that being said, I really think Cars Land should be only at California Adventure. I'm sure they could come up with exclusive new pixar rides for Hollywood Studios.

    I hear that term was coined for us in theme parks, no word on for who yet (though my understanding is Universal), but I can dream regardless of how poorly it'd fit.

    Yea that won't happen at Disney due to tolkiens feelings about Disney. Also think the universal thing was only a rumor with no truth to it

    Why Disney has not pursued adding an aqua section to Animal Kingdom - along the lines of Seaworld? Everyone I know loves whales, dolphins, etc. Why hasn't Disney even considered this instead of Pandora?

    Seems like could have plenty to go with that, but probably because of the seas with nemo and friends in Epcot. They don't want to take away business from another one of their parks
