I totally agree w/you. They need to expand their existing parks before they try to open a 5th gate.After all, there was supposed to be a section of Animal Kingdom that hasn't been developed yet (I think it dealt with Dragons or something?). There is room in Epcot for some additions and refurbishments, and there's that E-ticket attraction that's supposed to go into MK. They have quite a bit on their plate before they can get to a 5th park.

Yup... Mythical Animals... Dragons, Unicorns and all that jazz.

Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World. Visited In: 1983, 1988, 1989 x2, 1991, 1992, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 (passholder), 2007 (x2 x3), 2008, 2009 (x2), 2010, 2011 (x2)

I read somewhere that the AK expansion that was supposed to deal with mythical creatures was scrapped when the imagineers were laid off...thus taking all their expertise and ideas to universal.

Keeping everyone in the dark is the disney way (hence the haunted mansion sitting for 6 years and no one knew about it!)

I'd love another Disney park, but I think they should polish some of what they have now. Personally, I think a lot of MGM (oops! Disney's Hollywood Studios) could use some TLC.
I'd love to see the Mythical Creatures section of Animal Kingdom come to life. There's a lot of material to draw from, and I'm sure Disney could do great things with dragons, unicorns, satyrs, pegasuses (pegasi?) etc...
yeah i agree they should update their existing parks then add another park
If they are not going to build another park, they at least need to bring some 'E' ticket rides to WDW. Like California Screamin.........awesome ride and a real draw for coaster enthusiasts. Some of the new attractions they are adding are geared for younger ages.
Attention WDW management: There are more people that love Disney other than just young kids. Give the adults a reason to come back year after year.
I think it'd be neat if they brought rides from the European/Asian parks to WDW. Most of us will probably never get to them, and I'm sure they've got good stuff. There's supposed to be a neat weather attraction at Tokyo DisneySea, and I'd love it if Florida's Space Mountain was remade into Paris'.
You guysa re spot on with the sentiment that Disney should look to upgrade refurbish existing parks and attarctiosn before building new ones. The Eisner legagcy of "build it on the cheap" took a toll on quite few things. Throwing time and resources into the exisitng parks will benefit in the end.

I recently read a blurb that Space Mountain was supposed to be going through a refurbishment. It actually said they would be removing the top of the mountain to remove the tracks. It defintely needs a makeover. They need to being it into the 21st century.
i like the way dl space mountain was refurbished... sure it took 3 years butit was worth the wait

No they are going to tear it up AGAIN. Totally gutting out the old track and installing a new one with a new design inside. Get ready for SM to be totally closed for a while. If the rumor is true.
^I don't like really long refurbs.............
My cousin was saying what if they were building a new park on the other side of the property and they don't tell us until the opening(I doubt it).

Space Moutain will not be remade. It has been stated that they are just going to do a touch up like Haunted Mansion. Maybe some new sences or something, don't count on a new track.
