That's a fair question. Personally, I felt like Avatar was a really unoriginal movie. I understand that it is considered a breakthrough in CGI, but it lacked in heart, memorable characters, and an original plot line (Pocahontas, anyone?). Disney has always been about storytelling and making you have an emotional reaction to their movies, and I did not get that from Avatar. It doesn't bother me that Indiana Jones and Star Wars are represented in the parks because those films have characters that are memorable and stories that are unique. I guess, to put it simply, Avatar doesn't seem like it fits in with Disney.
NOS station refurb - it looks like they are concentrating on the northern end and working well into NOS. I'm hoping they are re-doing the handicapped entrance/exit since it was a bit narrow and seemed awkward for those who needed it.
