    You'll have to pardon my pessimism, but I'll believe that when I seen a preview. They've been talkin' Indy IV for the last fifteen years.

    Something like when AJ decided to hide out in the Honey I Shrunk the Kids playground...Would I need to promise both of them that we will go find some candy so that we could leave that land? I've seen them team up at 50s Prime Time, I know what they're capable of! "No, we don't wannaaaaaaa" AJ:*pouts*, Jake:*kicks*.

    And i'm sure Jake was 100% to blame, AJ looks way too sweet to ever cause any trouble without being helped!!! Shame on you Jake!!!!

    I dont want to see the Swiss Family House changed, but I would LOVE to see the Black Pearl & the Pirate Coaster sounds great. Why not add on? Is there a land issue? I understand where some could be sick of pirates, but I also can see where WDW could suffer from Harry Potter going to Universal. They need to have something to bring in the older kids.
    This is your badness level.

    Here at Hong Kong Disneyland they temporarily changed Adventureland to Pirateland, and its doing just fine here, there's no really new attractions, just some carnival style games, three new shows, and the renaming of some of the attractions.

    I think a change as big as the one mentioned is a bit too far...although a coaster in Adventureland would be pretty neato.
    All the people will look up and shout: "Save us!" and I'll whisper...'no'.

    Who watches the watchmen?

    I have an idea....keep the name adventureland, but add attractions that are adventurous. Such as a Black Pearl Coaster or an Indiana Jones adventure ride (there is one somewhere I think). This keeps the adventure in adventureland.

    I like this idea. Adventureland is not my favorite land in MK. It is usually an afterthought for me except for Pirates. I do love it. Adventureland needs more adventure, but keep the classics.

    I wouldn't mind the Swiss Family tree house being replaced with the Black Pearl but that's as far as it goes. NO PIRATE THEMED TIKI ROOM!! Honestly, this sounds like a joke!
    I can certainly understand Disney's need to squeeze what the Pirates thing is worth I mean, what else do they have that appeals to boys? Buzz Lightyear?

I know I don't want to go back to my local amusement park < King's Island in Ohio, becuase there isn't enough change. Everything has been the same for years and I am bored. I don't want to see a park full of Princess and Pirate themes but Disney is facing huge competition from Universal with the Harry Potter stuff. Pirates could be a great way to counter that.
    no absoluteley not. you don't change Adventureland to Pirateland because Universal Studios is adding Harry Potter.
    and you don't stay CLOSE to Walt's Dream you stay RIGHT ON TRACK!!

    just cuz you haven't seen a preview yet doesn't mean you can't believe it

    I absolutely love pirates but would hate to see adventureland rethemed to a pirateland, stick with the classics!

    I've been to Disney World 22 times and can't wait to go back!

    Ok, if we are going to stay right on track then we should close MGM and AK as well as the Water Parks too unless we can find original plans in Walt's desk for these ideas. Change has to happen. People will never stop going to Disney but you have to keep those people who aren't addicts like us from coming back.
