Would've been a better use of money than the MagicBands and NGE.
But how would Disney track your every move without Magicbands?.....Just kidding. I totally agree with you. I would rather them spend that money on lands and attractions.

Some of the updates were necessary and appreciated. But they blew FAR more money on components of MDE that never delivered on promises to make the Company a fortune. Infrastructure updates and production of the MDE app did not cost more than the cost of a new theme park.

Oh yeah, that definitely makes sense. It was more of a joke. However, I do think that some of the money could have been allocated to other projects. Personally, I like the MagicBands. I don't miss having paper tickets and a room key to worry about.

Don't quote me regarding a coaster. I have no info regarding that specific. Just that the Dinoland area is one of two areas being looked at for possible future development.

Until then this thread would be better served in general discussion until - if and when - more specifics are forthcoming. Until then I wouldn't class it as rumour per se, let alone news.

Not trying to get anyone's hopes up.
I too have heard that Dino may be a thing of the past, in the future. . .

"meant to take the headline attraction"
So, are the two attractions the 2nd and 3rd options that were originally planned and the 1st/best ride was scrapped?
There was a planned bike coaster. But we haven't been told any ride specifics (how many show scenes, animatronics, if any, were screens involved?) Personally I don't care that they didn't build it, I think the simulator serves a similar purpose and is quite a headliner. To me, coaster doesn't always equal the better attraction, but it would depend on what was planned for the bike coaster.

I'd rather they have lengthened River Journey a bit though instead of cutting the length and drop but I like that it's a family attraction most can ride. And AK has long needed an air conditioned boat ride.

What I heard was there would be a new E or D and the current E would be rethemed Serpico has been fairly consistent on that. Oh, and I am hearing the direction they were heading in on the Stitch replacement at MK may be changing???
Have u heard a time frame on that? I'd assume well into next decade. Good to know they're planning on getting around to dinorama I was hoping after avatar that they'd get there. As for MK it seems like they'd better hurry up because as it is I don't feel like the new additions are going to make it to the 50th

Stitch replacement by the 50th. AK additions I do not know. Hinted at 2022 but that is also what I heard for the new country at EPCOT.

Looking at the aerial maps they actually have a good amount of space to expand dinoland especially once you knock down dinorama and possibly the theater in the wild.
