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

God I hope it hits DHS. It fits brilliantly. Has the excitement that park has. And it would fit in well with the 30's/40's aesthetic of the park. Not sure what the reasoning would be to NOT put it in DHS. It's needed far more there.
Rumors are pointing at Indiana Jones going to DAK not DHS. That means the stunt show could be removed at some point.

It would stand to reason that Disney wouldn't close down any Dinorama attractions until there is a new draw elsewhere on property, i.e. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.
I think TSL and Runaway Train would more than be able to handle the impact of Dinorama closing.

I think Iger underestimated the SW potential at the Box Office until advanced ticket sales began for VII. Disney may also be underestimating the Indy franchise with a well written and produced sequel.

Point is, they should consider fast tracking an Indy Land at DAK. IMO.

Indy has always been a box office heavy hitter, but never a Star Wars phenom. If they're expecting Force Awakens gold from Indy they'll be disappointed no matter how good Indy 5 is.

Disney is riding a super high right now -- they had an amazing D23 expo, and got everyone excited/talking about their product again. I agree regarding fast tracking Indy, but with everything that is going on construction wise, even a fast-track is looking at beginning 2020 at the earliest haha!

I just hope Disney keeps this positive momentum. This then pushes Universal, which in-turn motivates Disney right back. I love the competition!

This is the only thing you've ever said that I have had a problem with. Literally, sure, you're right, it's impossible to make it an exact clone. But to turn Dinosaur into an Indy attraction incredibly similar to Tokyo's? It's absolutely 100% possible and not as costly as one might think. To try and just throw that in there to make it seem like it can't be done is just irresponsible.
I'll double check, but if I recall, even while the layout would have it walled off anyway, the chasm open space portion of the ride was never built, with straight down structural supports under what would be the bridge. While it may not be 100% impossible, it is definitely cost prohibitive and would be a certified PitA. Also, assuming no structural beams were where I thought they were, it would still be a lot of removing AAs, tearing down walls, and building rockwork.

Aren't there elevation changes as well? I would think that they'd be better off salvaging the track and basically gutting everything else if they were to do it.

Plans for an Indy area in DHS.
If they're having trouble finding a home for Indy, how about Tomorrowland!?

You can have:
  • a Crystal Skull Encounter replacement for Stitch
  • an Indiana Trap Floor show across from it
  • a Carousel of Progressive Democracies Defeating Fascism
  • a cycle (Harley-Davidson Softail Springer Classic) coaster
  • and a Mine Train Mountain
  • the people mover can be rethemed as train cars upon which you ride on top hanging on for dear life

I don't think there was ever anything to scrap there. But my ears are open.
It sounds like, if there's anything to the Indy rumor, it's almost as if someone at WDI or an exec threw it out there as an idea and it was run with. But who knows? It really wouldn't surprise me if they did this.

So Indy doesn't stand a chance of coming to DHA? Is the stunt show going to be around forever and ever? LOL
