Animal Kingdom & the 50th Anniversary

Although I actually love TRON (the original movie, the sequel was disappointing, don't know the animated series though) I believe the unique character of the ride on light cycles will appeal to MANY guests that don't exactly like TRON or even know the movie at all.
Definitely. I also love the original TRON and thought Legacy was just okay. But you are right in that even guests who have no idea what TRON is will want to ride it. It's a visually cool looking attraction as well as being a thrill ride. Both equal a super popular attraction. Tower of Terror falls into that same category. Even people who do not have a clue what the Twilight Zone is can enjoy it for the incredible theming and visuals as well as the thrill aspect of it.

Would be nice if they replaced the dragon (from the never completed Beastly Kingdom) on the sign with an Avatar Banshee that is actually there now.

PS- I'm still holding out hope one day for a BK whether it's at AK or maybe the 5th gate;)
I think the sign change would be unneccesary. They didn't change it to a yeti in 2006, likewise, there's no reason to change it to a banshee in 2017.

And on that note, I really don't think Beastly Kingdom would fit DAK well anymore. That was originally supposed to be the land of mythical animals, but it died when Everest was built. Not that that's a bad thing. I think a dragon ride in Asia and a unicorn attraction in a new Europe land would be fantastic.

I agree! I never watched TRON and I don't really care about the franchise, but I am super excited about TRON Coaster!

Do you have anything to share with the rest of the group @MansionButler84 ???

Wasn’t Ducktales coming to World Showcase enough for one week?!

It’s a bit early to discuss a potential DAK project beyond what’s already been stated. Don’t expect anything on the scale of what we are seeing at the other three parks, but I doubt that’s a surprise.

Unless Of course the 50th portion is just a taste of the next big project. The tip of the iceberg? The apertif? The head waters?

Exactly. That Dinoland project, I suspect, is looking at completion in the mid-2020s. Honestly, with Pandora opening in 2017, that’s roughly the clip they should be rolling out expansions at each park. A major addition at WDW every 12-18 months shouldn’t be too tall of an order heading into WDW’s 6th decade. Maybe that would prevent a need to spend $3 billion (or more!) to get the parks up to snuff for the Diamond Celebration.

Oh please, as if anyone at Disney Parks is thinking forward to 2031 in Florida. LOL. Unless they want 60 boutique hotels for the 60th....

Sounds like the Epcot hotel and Star Wars hotel are the start of a string of unique boutique hotels tied to IP? Epcot could be considered it's own IP. Curious about the other potential hotel plans, not that more hotels excites me.
If the hotel is an experience in and of itself, I'd be interested if the concept works for my family and the cost works for my bank account. I don't know that I'd extend my vacation from 7 to 10 days, though, like Disney is hoping.

I missed this Ducktales rumor. While I don't think this should be in WS, this is the best case with Agent P leaving. Wooohooo (pun intended)
