    7 Continents at Animal Kingdom

    I was in the College Program the year Animal Kingdom opened. I was told by various people (cast members) that over the years that the park would be adding more continents other then Asia and Africa until eventually they had a all 7. Antarctica for example would be like the penguin/polar bear area at Sea World, etc.
    I wonder if this eventually would happen!!!!! I have been back stage there before and have seen arial views. There is sure enough room!

    That would be alot of lands! I think they would need to get rid of Camp Minnie and Mickey and DinoLand USA if they were gonna have 5 more lands. It would also make the park alot larger to navigate in one day. Thats alot of new attractions as well! I dont see it happening for some reason, even though it would be awesome!

    Hello fellow CP-er!
    I would dearly love to see an Australia-themed land come to DAK. It such a diverse group of animals, and beautiful architecture. Yet I know how hard it is to take care of some of the animals from that area (the Baltimore Aquarium ran into this problem with its recently-opened Australia exhibit).

    I agree that it sounds like there would be a lot of hurdles to clear to make that happen, but how cool would that be? Australia? Antartica? something like the Amazon for South America . . . there would be a lot of amazing options.

    This sounds very cool! maybe in Austrailia there could be a jeep ride through austaraila and in anartica, there could be a singing penquin show.

    I would like to see a ride featuring Steve Irwin for Australia if only he were still alive. And I heard a rumor that Austraila will be built in back of Expedition Everest but if that happens I would suggest the Imagineers to fix up the back side of the mountain.

    i could only see 2 more continents ever come to AK. AUS and South America and nothing else both are rich with animals and culture also that park would be a 2 day park and man a lot of walking unless they do a sky buckets
    the only 18 year old boy who like disney more than girls......... nvm disney is a close 2nd

    I think back on why i am so strange now i know why .... I blame Disney but i still love it

    This would be cool, if it ever happened.
    As for the penguins.....they have penguins in South Africa - so why not add them to an area that already exists?!

    I'm guessing yes since its been well known that Animal Kingdom is the largest theme park at Walt Disney World.

    I would love to have more continents to visit. It's a taste of all the real places I will probably never get to go- kind of like World Showcase at Epcot. I would like to see a frozen land- Animal Kingdom can get so hot.

    I am totally with you on that one - I can be fine in all the parks walking around with no shade. But I walk through the gate of Animal Kingdom and start sweating. My friend tells me it has something to do with all of the trees that are there, producing heat and oxygen and stuff.
