In this week's poll, we ask whether you are still keen to see Walt Disney World open a new land decidated to James Cameron's Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
It's now more than eighteen months since Disney announced a partnership with James Cameron to bring an Avatar land to Disney's Animal Kingdom. Since then, the company has kept almost completely silent about its plans for the area, and little or no progress has been made on construction. Rumors have circulated that Walt Disney World will instead opt to install a clone of Disney California Adventure's Cars Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios, abandoning the Avatar project altogether.
This week, though, came a hint that Avatar Land may not be dead, after all. The debut of the new Adventurer's Outpost meet-and-greet location will enable Disney to close the Camp Minnie-Mickey area, creating room in which to install the Avatar attractions. Only the Festival of the Lion King show remains in that area, and that is widely expected to move to a new theater elsewhere in the park.
We have seen leaked blueprints of what might be in store for Avatar Land visitors. If construction does move ahead, the Avatar land is expected to host a major E-Ticket attraction that will simulate flight, as well as a boat ride around the fictional planet of Pandora.
Given Universal Orlando's massive investment in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida, should Disney race ahead with its Avatar plans? Or are they simply not enough to compete with the draw of Potter?
