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

Didn't stop Pandora. Besides, dinosaurs were George's first idea for Temple of Doom. Might as well bring that to life if this dumb IP mandate is this strong.
Good thing George's first idea didn't pan out. And as someone else on here more clearly stated; paleontology isn't archaeology. Perhaps George eventually realized this. Now it's TDO's turn.

An Indy boat ride in DHS makes sense on so many levels. So of course they decided to put Indy in one of the two parks he doesn't belong, and as a replacement for a perfectly good ride rather than a new build. Of course.
I know. I'm right there with you. It's so mind boggling how they get it wrong. Like, how hard is it?

The "looser" would possibly get nothing.

It’s down to an amazing ride system that has the chance of coming to Orlando. Naturally several different groups of people think it’d be a perfect fit for "their" proposal.
So very blue sky at this point?

I'm going to guess the Indy into Dino is true because of the way you and MB are talking.

Who makes these decisions because they're making the wrong ones.

Definitely true. I just wonder what country would require or be suited to such a massive E-ticket attraction like that.
It's just bizarre to me they aren't considering a boat ride for DHS. Featuring Indy. Boom. Done. Why is it so hard?? I don't get it. I really really don't. LOL.

Jungle Book gets the boat ride? Moana? Has to be IP related.

If this happens, I think it means that the Indy show is not long for DHS. Think about it. If the Indy show was staying, then a new Indy ride next to it makes the most sense. If they are getting rid of the show but still want Indy to have a presence, then converting Dinosaur saves them money.

I am not sure Indy fits AK but if they bring a South American land (like another poster said) could make sense with Indy as a part of it. Then DHS gets a brand new land and AK gets a much needed improvement over Dinoland. They will probably bring the Indy ride from Paris to replace the dino spin coaster (forgot its name). Although I heard that ride is very off the shelf and and uninspired.

I like Dinosaur but if it means getting rid of the garish Chester and Hesters, I say bring on the Indy! :)

Truly baffling. A brand new, surefire hit of an experience.....and they may go with a 20+ year old attraction idea. Ridiculousness.
Though Jungle Book would be really cool....but I’m team Indy (at DHS)

Personally they could re-theme Kali to Jungle Book and I'd not be too upset. In fact it'd be an improvement. But I guess the whole soaking you thing puts a bit of a damper on that. I do think the boat ride tech could work for a few IPs. Jungle Book would be really cool. But I had my heart set on an Indy boat ride (and I probably shouldn't have clung to the idea but it just made SO much sense to me -- and clearly many of us are baffled why it didn't make sense to them)

I appreciate how you are looking on the positive of things! I'm not there yet ;) lol

Chester and Hester's DinoRama could be solved. Since they're on a coasters kick, add Excavator and call it a day. Completely re-do and refresh Dinosaur (but instead I guess they're just switching it with Indy now, they're looking at it from a $$ perspective not a "what's best for these parks" perspective). Boom. Refreshed Dinoland USA!

I wish they'd stop taking IPs I like and putting them where I don't think they should go. LOL.

I'd be all for South America and Indy in AK if it were the boat ride and not replacing Dinoland. Go figure that one out. But I still think Indy's place should be DHS.

So what's their plan with DHS? Keep the stunt show another three decades? They should have put Star Wars there instead. Man they really make some poor decisions.

Can’t the shanghai pirates boat tech be used for two different rides in two different parks? Disney does it all the time. Even the same system multiple times in the same park! And I’m all for a South America with an Indy ride, but something tells me they’d want a real Indy land and not just a ride..

Even though he's an archaeologist, Indiana Jones is primarily based on paleontologist Roy Chapman Andrews, who did a lot of work in Mongolia, which inspired an Indiana Jones book where he meets a living Triceratops in that neck of the woods.
Also, the whole "Lost World full of dinosaurs and extinct beasts" was a staple of the pulp adventure stories that Indiana Jones belongs to as a genre.

If they want to put Indy in AK, I am sure they will find a way to make it fit. Plus- who know what the plot of the latest Indy will be? Indy meets dinosaurs? Disney will think of something....

In principle, I wouldn't have much of a problem with a South America (for example) land at DAK that had appropriate animals and nature themes with proper placemaking and having that land have an Indiana Jones ride as part of it. I'm not so hardcore that I feel that every single thing in DAK has to explicitly revolve around animals.

That said, I think my main issue is sacrificing a dinosaur area to get that -- dinosaurs and paleontology deserve a place in the park and the park needs expansions, not replacement.

Right there with you on this.
