    Is there going to be a 10 year AK celebration

    With the AK 10th year coming around the corner is there going to be a celebration to go with that?
    Look for me on Facebook: Tyler Keith Lee Tew

    So true. It is a part of the, "Where Dreams Come True" campaign. I wish that Disney would announce Beastly Kingdom for the 10th anniversity celebration. oh well. Islands Of Adventure will be 10 old soon as well.

    If so, do you think they would announce a new ride?

    Re: Is there going to be a 10 year AK celebration

    I don't think they are going to do that. Look at Epcot that's turning 25 this year and they have nothing planned. The only I heard is that Epcot will be refurbishing some of the old rides, like Spaceship Earth because of the new sponsor. I don't know much about AK and it's 10th but expect Disney to follow what they are doing with Epcot. If they do something, expect an announcement. I see Islands of Adventure getting something though because of what they did with HHN last year (16th anniversary "reunion").

    Gee.. has it been that long already?? I remember like if it was mere months ago, me being up all night in anticipation to being there on opening day in the morning. (of course, I had already visited DAK during CM preview days...)
    Then again, seems like it was only a few years ago when I stood at EPCOT's main entrance on Oct 1st, 1982 and watched as the grand opening ceremony unfolded in front of me.. (of course, I had already worked and visited EPCOT Center a few weeks before that in sept 82 during Construction Workers' Family Preview days)
    Oh the memories... they make me misty.

    Expect a huge event for AK's 10th, including a reason to stay in the park until close... which will actually be at night.

    And I agree, there probably won't be a major celebration as Epcot turns 25 without anything but a pin to mention this anniversary. What I would suspect, given the nature (bad pun, I know) of the park would be some dedications of animals to the Safari, trails, etc.

    sorry for being negative but I still don't see anything being done for AK's 10th anniversary.

    Re: Is there going to be a 10 year AK celebration

    they would have to do more than have a nighttime show to keep me in the park longer. if you time things right you can see the whole park between 9am and 5pm and considering the animals wouldn't be out at night the only other area worth seeing is dinoland and that can get boring very easily.
