    Post Disney Announces Avatarland to open in 2017

    Disney’s Kalogridis: Avatar to open in 2017 - Orlando Business Journal

    Walt Disney World last week told Orlando Business Journal that its planned new Avatar land at Animal Kingdom will open by summer 2017.In 2011, Disney announced it was developing the land, but gave no other details on rides, shows or a timeline.
    Until now, that is.
    Its about a five-year development process, so Id say we are on track and the guests are going to love it, Walt Disney World President George Kalogridis told OBJ in a one-on-one interview last week. He added that it will open in about four more years.

    Wow! 2017? Universal is already working on more Harry Potter and Simpsons expanions and Disney has this opening in 5 yrs. I love Disney but I already see a huge decline for them unless they get something big rolling for next year or 2015 besides the Snow White mine ride.

    Disney always comes out on top, I wouldnt worry =) they will come up with something that will blow anything Universal does out of the water.

    I am really looking forward to this. I know I'm probably the only one who supports the construction of this land. I also know I'm going to be flamed for it. But honestly, I'm not too concerned.

    Sounds very loyalist of you but WDW has shown that just isn't true anymore. If anything you'll get lucky and yet again some other Disney resort will do something that WDW will import a copy of to combat whatever else Universal comes out with.

    No need to wait four more years, everyone is wondering WTH is Avatar right now.

    Maybe Disney is hoping by pushing it out so far that everyone will think its an original concept.

    Personally I don't look at it as a competition. While I enjoyed the Harry Potter books and movies I don't plan on running over to Universal to see what they have done. Visiting other parks has always just felt like I was at a park, Disney on the other hand always feels like I'm in another "world". I really couldn't care much less about what Universal does.

    Aren't they making a couple more Avatar movies? I thought I read that some place. If so, it will keep the idea in peoples mind and if the movies are any good peak a bit more interest.

    Booo!
    It bothers me when people selectively edit quotes to support whatever point they are trying to prove.

    Another reason for me to avoid DAK. Works for me. I'll be over at Epcot and Potterland.
