    I would rather listen to nickelback than have Disney build AvatardLand.

    No, but it shows how thin Disney's creative vision (respect for the intelligence of guests) can be at times.

    Re: Disney Announces Avatarland to open in 2017

    AVATAR had no soul whereas, Harry Potter did. Harry Potter also had higher popularity all around the world. Universal have won this decade's attractions maybe, USO will be Orlando's signature resort for a while
    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

    Re: Disney Announces Avatarland to open in 2017

    I have been a part of many discussions here it; been pointed out the Avatar doesn't fit the theme of DAK. On the wiki page for DAK the dedication is what I listed below. Is that really it? If so then I am not sure how avatar doesn't fit the theme really. They can really make it memorable with lore of the Pandora and even relate their stories back to our Earth and teach us about conservation.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Welcome to a kingdom of animals... real, ancient and imagined: a kingdom ruled by lions, dinosaurs and dragons; a kingdom of balance, harmony and survival; a kingdom we enter to share in the wonder, gaze at the beauty, thrill at the drama, and learn.

    Re: Disney Announces Avatarland to open in 2017

    The imagined animals of Disney's Animal Kingdom have had a cultural reality. There was a time when they were considered very real. Even to this day the yeti retains such an understanding, even if only as a symbol. That is not the case with purely fictional creatures and places like Pandora. The park is also about us and our planet. Aliens and alien planets have existed before Avatar. John Carter's Mars would be equally as in appropriate. As would a Star Wars landscape or anything else involving animals of pure fantasy.

    Re: Disney Announces Avatarland to open in 2017

    ^your opinion only. Clearly Disney had a different opinion. That all said.... 2017??? Really?

    Opinion but.... Avatar: the World of Pandora will fade off into greatness with the likes of Disney's American, Port Disney long beach, Russia and Switzerland Pavillions and many other simular fates within Disney history.

    What a cop out way to kill a project. Instead of admit it is on hold or under reconsideration, just put an opening date that is so far way that

    a) no one could possible be excited for it

    and

    b) it will be forgotten about long before this "opening year"

    Re: Disney Announces Avatarland to open in 2017

    As with many others, I simply cannot get excited for Avatarland. I would much rather see Animal Kingdom with 7 lands, one for each continent. Each land could have real and imaginary animals suiting the local wildlife and legends. Here would be a place for a ride like Mystic Manor, and themeing like Tokyo Disney Sea's Lost River Delta (please bring Mystic Rhythms to the US!). And please, bring pandas!
    Drop another coin in slot and I will tell you more.

    The seven land thing would be good as well but looking at the current selection of area it seems like they aren't ever going that direction. There is already 7 themed areas and only two of them are based off continents. Beastly Kingdom would have been awesome if they went through with it though IMO

    Re: Disney Announces Avatarland to open in 2017

    Well I'm for one ecstatic that Avatarland is still coming, it's happening and I'll be there opening weekend in 2017. Or 2018 when it gets delayed a year.

    I've been saying for awhile now that it is coming even though many wanted this project to implode in itself. I still think everyone should hold judgement until at least experiencing it in 2017, walking through it, riding the rides, seeing what Disney Imagineers can do with this idea, this concept.

    I too still want the original Beast land with mythical creatures, the maze with the unicorn in the middle, the new "mountain" ride BUT I guess Universal will have to steal the idea and make it their own.

    Harry Potter and its expansion will be built/rushed by 2014 and 3 years later I think Avatarland will make its mark after most here have been there and done Harry Potter's world a few times over ready to try out something brand new, 3 years later... in 2017.

    The title for Pandora may be already taken or copyrighted thus meaning why they have not called it Pandora. I would guess it has to do with someone owning the rights to Pandora in a theme park environment... I too don't understand why they keep Avatarland name over Pandora.
