    I think the word "land" is were we get suck maybe. I think it's good enough for an area. 1 Ride and a gift shop plus dinning.

    I feel as if something Zootopia themed should go in AK. I'd replace Dinoland, but keep DINOSAUR/CTX and retheme the area around DINOSAUR, to match that of a more Dino Institute/SEA theming. As for DinoRama, I'd just retheme the area to Zootopia, get rid of Chester & Hester. Triceratops Spin and Primeval Whirl would be demolished, and I'd build a coaster/dark-ride hybrid and a Flight of Passage style attraction. I'd also move Pluto and Goofy elsewhere within AK and replace them with a Nick & Judy M&G.

    Frozen is getting a land in Hong Kong Disneyland. Frozen in Hong Kong is getting 2 rides there along with shopping, and dining.

    Agree. I'd say replace DinoLand USA except DINOSAUR/CTX which it's surrounding area would get more of a Dino Institute/Society of Explorers and Adventurers retheme.

    So what are you trying to say about Zootopia? One film in a possible franchise = land inside a theme park?

    Was Toon Town not popular? Is that why they took it down? I never got to see it in WDW but I was surprised to see it go since the one in Disneyland is always crowded.

    People, a land can be one ride or two attractions.
    That said, Animal Kingdom. Why stop with Pandora?

    As immersive as Zootopia can be, there is plenty room to create and build an aesthetically pleasing encounter for guests while being family friendly and bringing more bodies to Animal Kingdom. Animal Kingdom holds it's own weight and has potential to be Magic Kingdom concrete.

    Zootopia footprint, (Doesnt have to be major) would have a huge impact on Animal Kingdoms numbers and beauty.

    my daughter loves Moana(16 years old) and well i do too. i'd love to see something created for the movie in an epcot area as long as it fits the theme of the land/country it should be in.

    Definitely not AK. It's such a beautiful and realistic park (Except DinoRama) that Zootopia would kind of ruin. It's too cartoony and plastic. It also doesn't go with the conservation message that is all about in AK.

    There are sooooooo many other properties that deserve an attraction/land than zootopia. Just because its a disney movie doesn't mean its at the level of an attraction/land.

    I did! voted before fully reading the poll topic. I'm against a land period.

    Zootopia however "can" work in Epcot. I've since changed my vote for Hollywood Studios because it's the best option for an IP dumping ground. That said I think Epcot has the potential to use Zootopia IP in a successful way. AK gets an automatic thumbs down from me only because I feel like it would be the obvious choice, and the wrong one. It would lend itself to a crappy ride because it doesn't fit the core purpose of the land and because it wouldn't surprise me to see WDI put something together on the cheap and thinking it'll do so long as it has animals in it. Nope. I'd be OK with it in HS or Epcot. The later being a choice that would require WDI to find a way to make it work in a park that boasts what a Utopian society would be like through the use of technology, communication, culture, innovation and discovery. Seems like a good choice to me.

    Zootopia was a horrible movie, lets hope if it finds a home it is at a Six Flags park somewhere far from where I live.
