    This. Avatar is okay and all, but I really wanted to see this happen.

    Am I the only one who isn't suprised that all Avatar Land is is Soarin'+? Its truly sad, but not surprising. I assumed when they announced it that it would have a similar ride system as Soarin'. I hoped for more, but then again this is TDO we are talking about.

    Ugh. My one and only hope for this land was that it wouldn't have a simulator because I really wanted WDI to stretch and prove what kind of epic work they can do. Aaaaaaand the whole land is centered around a giant simulator. I. Am. Disappoint.

    lol and some people wondered why Ive been hating on this idea for so long, this is just part of the craptacular thats coming. why couldn't they have just continued on with the good thing they had going and built australia or north america as a new land?

    I'm not surprised. If it does happen I wonder how it would effect the huge lines at Soarin

    Don't be fooled by the soarin comparison. It sounds like there might be a ride vehicle that moves with the screen. Not for sure but possible according to screamscape. My guess is that it's more like the BTTF or Simpsons ride. Time will tell.

    Also, my guess is they learned their lesson with film based rides and this one will have several random scenes that will change so you don't get bored after 2 or 3 rides.

    Re: Avatar Plans Leaked

    Why is everyone damning this thing already??? My few cents on this: 1. These are blueprints with zero context. You don't know whether they will use them or not. And of course blueprints will be unimpressive. It's just a floor plan for crying out loud. ????? 2. Wait for concept art if you want to get a sense of what they are really doing. 3. It's not going to be a Soarin' clone. There's no way James Cameron would write off on that. 4. You have no clue about the ride system to make that assertion. 5. Something like Harry Potter wouldn't be all that bad. A riff off of that would probably be an amazing experience. I'm sure they'll do things to differentiate it from that ride. 6. The boat ride segment sounds a lot more exciting than people are giving it credit for. Don't people want classic Disney dark rides with AAs in them?

    The concept is what people have had the original problem with, Avatar does not belong in Animal kingdom its addition is absurd to begin with. Obviously if the concept shouldn't even be there in the first place people are going to view things through a negative light. there are so many far more worthwhile concepts to put into AK doing this addition really hurts the park as a whole.

    I don't think anyone knows what the heck they're looking at. This is exactly why they don't release it to the public.

    LOL at judging Blueprints we have no idea what we are looking at or how it will be used. The story of Avatar actually fits in the animal kingdom if you think about how the Navi respect nature and it's prescense surrounding it. This is more or less the message AK trys to deliver. There is a lot of potential here and I can't wait to see it. This area will be waaaaaaaay better than Dinoland USA. Seeing pandora in real life should be nothing short of amazing IMO.

    lol its also a little more or less a bunch of blue aliens that have ponytail sex on a far off planet that is being invaded by highly advanced humans that have developed cyborg replicas to infiltrate their culture. yep that reallly fits in Disney's tribute to the planet earth, its flora and fauna, and their preservation. No matter how you attempt to justify it this doesn't belong in the park and again will be a detriment to the phenomenal theme they have developed there. dino land usa is far more thematically relevant then Avatar could ever be regardless of your likes or dislikes of what is actually there. they could have done just as great a job creating many far more relevant additions like say australia.
