can I vote fro expansions to DAK and DHS instead?
I agree with everyone about making improvements to other parks first specifically AK and DS and maybe a new land in the World Showcase of EPCOT. I really think they should spend money on expanding the monorail to the Studios and AK and possibly the Wilderness and Animal Kingdom Lodges.
Now should they decide to build a 5th park (which they eventually will), I have a couple of ideas. How about a "Disney's Heroes & Villains" park? That way you could combine characters like The Incredibles with the Marvel superheroes. A great opportunity for some major thrill rides. Or how about a theme park with rides based on weather related events such as blizzards, floods, etc... They could be informative like some of the old EPCOT rides and would also have a great potential for some awesome thrill rides. The park could be called something like "Disney's Seasons". Just my 2 cents worth.

well the reality of the situation is that a 5th park is not only unlikely but almost certainly not a possibity.
There is zero reason for it. Why would Disney spend billions to redistribute guests. One thing they learned from DAK was that the new park didnt really bring in more people it just moved them around. Generally, people are at WDW for a week. 4 parks and 2 water parks are more then enough. And if Disney adds a Villians Park or a Sports Park or whatever, people arent going to go to Disney just because of that. They were going anyway.
As for DAK and DHS, they often dwindle in attendance towards the late afternoon. at least when there isnt a fantasmic showing at DHS. It makes sense for expansion of those parks. DAK particlaurly suffers from this
Did anything become of the AK expansion rumour from a few months back? The Australia-based one?

for DHS I would take down the Backlot tour to add an Incredibles dark ride and the Monsters Inc Coaster. And make a Lucas area turning the backlot express into the Mos Eisley Cantina and Sounds Dangerous into a THX sound show

I think that a 5th gate should address the segment of the population that is too old for the magic kingdom...too young for epcot, in other words teenagers, young adults.....a thrill park that consists of roller coasters.....like Cedar Point...you can make it like an old fashioned carnival....themed to be nostalgic for adults, lots of coasters for the thrill seakers and of course any other kind of thrill ride that only Disney could come up with. So many times I have overheard young adults, teenagers moaning how bored they are at the parks.
I always thought the addition of a second castle to the magic kingdom, prop where the new expansion is currently taking place, would add a great element..It would be an evil castle, stocked with great Disney villians and at night there could be a fantastic light show, fireworks...whatever...showing a battle between good and evil, between the 2 castles...with good winning, of course.
Additions to Epcot...something to do with weather and something to with the earth...earthquakes, volcanos...think of the possibilites. Def need Brazil, India,
Egypt for new countries too
If they just went back to maintaining the quality level of the late 80s-early 90s and I'd be happy.

I would love see to see further expansions at DAK before any 5th gate. There is so many possibilities to make that a brilliant park. An Australia land would be good to see.
