Confirmed by the insiders that are talking about this rumor.
Awesome thanks! I must have missed that somehow. As much as I love the Disneyland version I was disappointed with the idea we would just get a copy of it (if this actually happens).

So another Iger acquisition's getting an attraction instead of, oh I don't know, Jungle Book or Pride Lands.

Figures.

More like it's very early days for *something* pre blue sky, let alone approved.
Got you.

Are you allowed to say if getting Indy in the parks has been a point of discussion by the decision makers in WDW?

Being a huge fan of the Indy franchise, this rumor got me really excited more for the fact that WDW was finally talking about getting a true Indy presence in the parks instead of just the show.

Back when SWL was on the stunt show there was a possibility of a new Indy area elsewhere in DHS. So there's a few Indy fans in Burbank.

I've said it years ago to family and friends- DAK needs a family friendly dino ride. Little kids should be able to experience dinosaurs in an environment and vehicle suitable to their young age. DINOSAUR is not it. It's good, but it is not it.
you don't see the dumbo clone?

Oh sure. Don't we all???? ;)
But there should be a ride where you meet non-cartoon dinos that is kid friendly.

What's wrong with Dinosaur for young kids? The height requirement isn't too bad so most 5 years olds and the majority or 4 year olds should be able to ride. And most kids (I realize there are exceptions) who aren't tall enough won't be emotionally ready at under 4 years old for non-cartoon dinosaurs.

other than the fact that it's extremely loud and very dark in many places, with massive dinosaurs? nothing

I'd bet a 5 year old would have the crap scared out of him vs. something like Primeval World diorama at DL. Something in the middle of the Dinosaur and the diorama might be great/perfect.

Fair point. I may be generalizing too much from when I rode Dinosaur a few years ago with my then 5 year old nephew. He was a bit nervous and held my hand during ride, but he loved it.

Last year we finally got a ride picture with DD1's face - she was always hiding in my lap before. She said it was the first time she's even seen the big dino at the end. She was 18.

The newest episode of Jim Hill discredits this rumor. He didn't have any insider information, just that he didn't think AK would be adding more animals to the south side of the park, which is open longer hours than most animals in the park are viewable. (Is this not addressable?) He further thought it didn't make sense to overhaul a ride because doing so doesn't add capacity (though that doesn't seem to have much bearing on recent announcements). Len mentioned hoping for the Excavator coaster, to which Jim said he thought management was too IP-focused for that to be approved. So really there's no new news here, just more opinions similar to those already expressed here, but I'm reporting it anyway. Their analysis seems reasonable.
