It seems weird to completely scrub dinosaurs from the park. One thing I would have thought that was guaranteed to move merchandise and hold the interest of children was dinosaurs.
They don’t understand interest in concepts that aren’t specific IPs. That’s a complete blind spot for the current people in charge.It seems weird to completely scrub dinosaurs from the park.

Dinosaur underperforms for the park. They think this would improve that.Oh so they're gonna retheme Dinosaur?
Still a weird decision and adds nothing of value/capacity to the park.
Much of the existing buildings would be yanked out altogether. It’s the Moana area that keeps some existing structures.What would they do with the Boneyard? Retheme it to a Zootopia playground or tear it up completely? And I guess they'd just retheme Restaurantosaurus to Zootopia or Moana?

Of course, so would a nice refurb. I hope that, if Zootopia is not funded, they at least refurbish Dinosaur nicely.
Recall: Bob thinks we come to Disney parks wanting to see Disney worlds come to life. That’s why even small areas of DCA (like Pacific Wharf) are transforming into movie worlds.So terrible. Why was this presented so strangely? Is Disney giving up on dinosaurs just because Universal has some good dino rides?
So much I want to say but I don’t want to get banned. Maybe my breaking point.
Sorry if I’m coming across as a jerk, promise it isn’t directed at you at all. I just hate how all the physical sets and animotronics are being ripped out for screens. It’s just sad.No idea what the inside would look like. I presume the forthcoming Zootopia ride in Asia would provide a hint.
With Rohde gone, there was no one left to fight the tide.So with Beastly Kingdom never coming to fruition and Dinosaur/Dinoland most likely being replaced by IPs, this means the original core concept of Animal Kingdom representing real, extinct and imaginary animals is 100% dead and buried and now it's nothing more than yet another IP park.
It was said that Dinosaur would retrofitted (redone) as a Zootopia ride if the phase 2 went forwardWhy in the world would they rid of Dinosaur?! AK needs all the capacity it needs, and that's a moster ride with good capacity.
And now for my biased opinion – Dinosaur was my favorite ride at WDW for years until the recent additions (aka ROTR), so I would be devastated if they ride of it for a Zootopia ride/land....ugh
Keep it and build new things for additional capacity.
