What will you do with Animal Kingdom Poll!

If it was your choice, what would you do in the area designated for Avatar?

  1. Love the Avatar Concept! Pure Disney Genius!

  2. Scrap Avatar! Give me the Australian Outback instead.

  3. Like the idea of something new, but, neither Avatar or Australia are doing it for me.

  4. The area is lovely now - just leave it as is!

    My prior suggestion (based on a Other Poster suggestion for a flume on a different thread): How about a Log Flume that the main drop takes you on a 50 foot clear tube through the Reef. Add to that:

    • The flume traverses up around Croc's and Ayers Rock.
    • A viewing area so non-riders can enjoy it. With regular shows and CM's on site explaining what you are seeing.
    • A Restaurant where people can view the Reef.

    Do that - it is may be cost justifiable.

    I never wanted Avatar Land. Ever since I heard about Beastly Kingdom years ago, that's exactly what I've wanted in Animal Kingdom. Australia to me would fit better in Epcot.

    Animal Kingdom is a wonderful park, but it does need something to to really make it exciting. The yeti, considering it doesn't move anymore, isn't as amazing as it used to be. Dinosaur is worth a trip. Both of these rides aren't targeted for small kids and they also don't always do well during It's Tought to Be A Bug. Kali River Rapids... it's not as fun as Grizzly River Run at DCA and not everyone wants to get wet (unless it's summer time, of course).

    Really, besides the shows, seeing animals, and Kilamanjaro there's not much to do for kids. Australia, with the possible animal shows and exhibits, just wouldn't seem to bring anything super exciting to the park.

    Animal Kingdom needs attractions that showcase animals and/or movies in ways the whole family can enjoy. Which is yet again why I approved of a Beastly Kingdom area... kids love mythical creatures, as does everyone else. Their ideas seemed pretty good to me. Too bad it just never went through.

    They couldn't do anything worse than put Avatarland in there, I'm convinced.



    And I'm saying that as a person that actually liked and purchased that movie (and I don't own many movies at all....just Disney, Harry Potter "special" types etc.)

    Alot of great suggestions here. Really like the flume concept with the 50 ft clear tube & the Barrier Reef boat ride. This park definitely needs a couple of E-ticket rides & more young kid friendly areas.

    These suggestions are really awesome and on point IMO. I think they would be cost effective and give everyone (parents w/ small children, teens and adults) a reason to make AK a full day. I personally love AK, but it is easily an exotic zoo. I do believe they should focus on their own movies as well. Tarzan, Pocahontas and Jungle Book deserve more than small meet-and-greets. Pride rock would be awesome especially with FOLK in it:thumbsup2
