Very Interesting NEW Article about Avatar coming to DAK

This article is from Mouse Unlimited and has some very specific details about the possibility of Avatar and Disney's Animal Kingdom. It talks about actual blue prints and has some info about possible rides in the new land. An interesting part at the end of the article claims that there could be a plan B for this new land at DAK if Disney and Cameron can't come to an agreement.

Personally I am excited for this new land in DAK, however I know I am in the minority. However, lets remember according to this article that there could be a plan B, so let's not turn this into an Avatar bashing thread and more into what the possibilities can be. Link for the article is below

Thanks for the interesting read. I hadn't heard of a reveal date of December 7 before. We'll all see what happens together I guess.

Oh I will be upset if they get rid of Festival of the Lion King. I love that show, but anxious to see what happens.

Here's hoping for plan B

Any conjecture on potential themes? The originally planned Beastly Kingdom would be neat, but that theme seems to lend itself better to a coaster than a Soarin' type ride.

I was thinking Beastly Kingdom too. Some of the things that were mentioned in the article did sound neat, however I like the Beastly Kingdom theme that should of been more then the Avatarland theme that might be.

Is anyone kind of shocked that this person in the article is revealing such confidential behind the scenes information out to the public like this?

I'm pretty sure these kinds of "leaks" don't happen by accident.

It's a way for Disney to start ramping up the excitement without committing to anything solid.

1) It is still rumored to be relocated to "Africa".
2) Which, of course does make contextual sense.
3) The *alleged* location is
. . . to the right of Tusker (when facing Tusker House)
. . . to the left of Safari
. . . set back about 50-70 feet
4) ABSOLUTELY NO RUMORS of a new Camp Minnie-Mickey location.
5) Assuming they keep Camp Minnie-Mickey ?!?!?!

I thought that Beastly Bazaar was the new Camp Minnie-Mickey.

~Yay!!! Thanks for the update, OP. Meg Crofton has already alluded to the "final planning" for the Avatar section of Animal Kingdom, just a couple weeks ago when the Disney World ambassadors were announced! I can't wait to here more details and plans!

One of the "insiders" over on WDWMagic is reporting that Disney and Cameron HAVE reached an agreement. So, as of right now, no plan B.
