Everything I've heard is that it's happening no matter what.
Bt then again, there's always a chance you'll get your way and be able to stare at an empty plot and complain for the next 10 years about why they don't build anything.
And all that $$$ freed up to fix existing attractions and add some love to DHS. Pixarland? Please. One attraction and one gift shop does not a land make.
The general public doesn't want Pixar, or the Muppets, or anything like that. They want Harry Potter. They want Star Wars. They want Avatar. This is why Wizarding World was so successful, IMO.
I don't necessarily want more Pixar either. I just used that area of DHS to illustrate all the empty or under-utilized parts of that park. Our family loves DHS, but I can clearly see how families with small kids would find it to be a half-day park.
We always get 10 day Parkhopper passes (with waterparks/more), but have never spent more than 5 hours at DAK on any given trip.
I'm not hating on the Avatarland idea - it's just that the limited info released sounded meh. For us, we hit the safari, EE, Dinosaur and maybe KRR and then head on over to a "real" park.
This is our experience. I appreciate that it may not be your's.
I'd say I hate to say I told ya so, but I did see it coming.
