this ride actually sounds interesting.. not in place of JC, BUT somewhere in AK or anywhere else. I know it's an April Fool's joke but it's not a totally bad concept as its own ride build from the ground up, and not replacing anything.
Seeing this on the front page this morning put me into an outrage. Then I checked the date of its posting. Definitely got me this year ha ha.
Strangely enough though, I did have a dream a couple years back about the Jungle Cruise turning into an Avatar-based attraction during the second portion of the attraction (from Schweitzer Falls on). I woke up pissed off and frightened. Luckily it's not happening!
The first paragraph sounded VERY authentic (and I wouldn’t be surprised if THAT wasn’t true). However, when Disneyland was added to the picture, it totally fell apart. If you had stopped with something like “Iger has decided to cancel the Avatar project altogether”, I would have been completely fooled (unless, of course. it were TRUE).
I wouldn't be too upset if this was the actual ride concept for the one in AK, it sounded very interesting.
Fear of the unknown.
They are afraid of new ideas.
They are loaded with prejudices, not based upon any reality, but based on… if something is new, I reject it immediately because it’s frightening to me. What they do instead is just stay with the familiar. You know, to me, the most beautiful things in all the universe, are the most mysterious.
