Rumor Is Indiana Jones Planning an Adventure to Disney's Animal Kingdom?

They may be more interested than you think when they see minimum 2 hour waiting times for SWL attractions (or to get into the land itself).
Maybe, but the last time something with close to this magnitude was opened was Cars Land. People are still running at rope drop and ignoring everything else.

Every time I've been Indy has been packed full, I can't see them getting rid of it at a time when the park is going to be the fullest it's ever been. If they ever decide to replace it I would rather they put in a new show than demo it for a ride.
The only reason it's packed is because people are trying to get their money's worth and trying to stretch a full day out of a half day park.

I know, people will go straight for SWL as soon as it opens, but at least Indy should be one of the options for those not wanting to wait in crazy lines. I think Galaxy's Edge will exceed Cars Land in terms of guest volume.

Most definitely it will dwarf cars land. With the advent of toy story land drawing more critters, I can't see a long in the tooth Indy doing better business.

I don't know, Indy has been really busy any time I've been there. I would like to see the show updated with new stunts and dialogue as it hasn't changed a bit but I can't see it going anywhere (and personally would prefer it didn't go anywhere). That may change if they relocate star tours to SWL and free up that lot giving the option to convert the entire space into a new themed land, though I can't see that happening in the foreseeable future.

If you've never seen Indy, it's a cool show. Just as LCA was before it was shut down. Not a lot of live action stuff out there like them, and people seem to like them. If you've seen either more than a couple or a few times, sure... It'll be old news. But a quality show like either of these requires a new set, new effects, new people and props - and lots of rehearsing. Not to mention signage, park maps, online references. No so easy to "just swap out."

Again, I attribute the Indy crowd to the fact that the park doesn't offer that much. People would rather see something for the 20th time rather than dealing with bus and monorail transportation to another park sucking up 2 hours of one of their days in the parks.

I don't think the Indy show is going anywhere soon. There's supposed to be a new Indy film in the next 3 or 4 years, reboot or remake. So I assume Disney would maybe update it perhaps, but not demo it. They must see the potential in keeping it with a future Indy film on the horizon.

Hollywood studios has always been a half day park due to the lack of attractions on offer, but getting rid of Indy isn't going to accomplish anything other than taking the attraction out of service for 18-24 months while it is either demolished and reimagined or the stunt team is re-trained to do a completely new show. The reality is new attractions are needed to soak up the ever increasing guest count. New guest or ones that simply like the Indy show can go see it while other people can entertain themselves elsewhere. Is there anything you want to see introduced to the park/s in particular?

True, the demographic of wdw is so diverse, they see thousands of first time visitors from around the world that's never experienced it, which Disney banks on. I imagine it's not that expensive to keep around either making it doubly enticing for Disney to keep.

Considering that each park is now an IP land, it really doesn't matter what they focus on to replace it. The movie theme is represented in each park, so the studios theme is moot.

I really have no clue what should go there.

I would 100% agree on the studios theme, I think that ship sailed the day they closed the backlot tour.

I always thought that an Indy coaster would've been a great addition for the studios. The temple of doom mine car setting would've been perfect for that sort of thing, although it would be difficult to work that into any sort of immersive land they could create on site.

The mine car coaster would've been awesome.

Agreed on the closing of the back lot tour. That was the first nail in the coffin.

At this point, my ideal scenario is this:

Toy Story opens, Tower closes (mid-2018)
Tower reopens with version 5 programmed in, Theater of the Stars closes (late 2018)
Theater of the Stars reopens enclosed and with an upgraded version of BatB, Voyage closes (early 2019)
New show replacing Voyage opens (mid 2019)
Star Wars and Mickey open (late 2019)

Of course, I'd be gobsmacked if we got more than the first and last of these.

True. RETLAW and WED were such. But, his positives far outweigh the negatives we can all agree or else we wouldn't be here.
Noone denies as such. Just I dont like people put these people almost at god level pedestals while claiming they were flawless individuals.
Everyone has flaws.
