    I'm so confused as to why they posted it in the middle of the night...but everything with Avatar land confuses me.

    you beat me to it. This will take a whole lot of time to complete... but I definitely feel it'll make DAK an all day park

    And on a Friday night. An old tactic for when Companies hope to bury an announcement. The art is far more conceptual than actual.

    Timed with the live announcement at D23 in Japan where it is not the middle of the night.

    Interesting they share Animal Kingdom news at the D23 Expo in Japan, and therefore have to post it online at midnight.

    Based on the art...looks like a boat ride and a roller coaster?

    I'm excited about nighttime DAK! Yay!

    AV Land does not disappoint at first glance. I do think the Rock of Life looks a bit fakeish, doesn't do the floating rocks justice.

    Yes, I'm sure Disney is hoping nobody notices the announcement of the largest expansion project they are likely to do in Florida for the next 5 years at least. :rolleyes:

    the best part about the entire announcement is the nighttime show. it sounds like they are innovating with their entertainment again...and finding a way to bring glow with the show to AK. Hopefully the entire ToL will get the refurb it needs.


    Now for all of the official DHS announcements...

    Whoa. If the finished product is even half as visually amazing as the concept art, I will jump ship and say that I am a fan of the whole Avatar-land idea.

    It's pretty weird, usually how Congress announces a pay raise for itself. That said, the concept art is beautiful.

    Strange choice. Maybe they had hoped it would be ready in August but couldn't get there? Or maybe they were planning to have a TDL announcement in Japan but that got pulled and this replaced it?

    Wow! If they even do one tenth of what's implied in the artwork, it could actually be epic...and I don't even care for Avatar.

    For the record, I'm posting on the first page of a big news thread :D

    Then they could have put more effort into the announcement. Like make it in this country, where the project is happening. Or at a time when people would notice. Or not use art that still shows very little in the way of specifics.

    I agree with all of that. I just don't attribute the failure to,do those things with a desire to bury the announcement. No need to attribute to deceit, dishonesty, or evil intent that which can easily be explained by incompetence.
