    I ve heard this as well... Appears that Cameron wants 100% creative control and Disneu obviously doesn't want to go that route...

    I don't know how this wasn't brought up in the initial conversations. Imagine working with JK Rowling though...

    Honestly, I don't understand why Disney even wants this land. I don't see it attracting any new visitors. I mean I know this movie made the most money ever, but that's mainly because of inflation and IMAX/3D prices. It was not a very good film, and already many people have forgotten about it. It's not going to be a long lasting franchise like Marvel, Star Wars, or Harry Potter.

    I've never been a big fan of the idea of Avatarland in AK but I would like to see some expansion of the park. There needs to be more there to hold my attention.

    Well with how quick HP went up, she could not have been too bad or they let her call all the practical shots. Either way, they got it up and running and it is very successful.

    Likely HP-2.0 will springboard to life before anything new at WDW other than FLE, the answer to HP-1.0

    When I am the Empress of the World:

    All of the Pavillions at Epcot will be fixed and complete

    Two new countries will be added to the showcase at the same time


    DHS will revamp and become a whole day park instead of a half day and they will not mess up Sunset Blvd.

    AK will also become a full day park and stop trying to be a zoo and become a theme park that is themed around animals.

    DHS is apparently getting itself ready for a massive overhaul in the next few years... as Avatarland dies off, DHS is next in line... the million dollar question is when do they work on Future World in Epcot...

    Future World is in DIRE need of work but so is Tomorrowland.

    I really like the idea of adding Australia. Include a little area for Tazmania and New Zealand as well.

    When you are Empress of the World would you make me an avatar with Mickey's ears on a Cleveland Browns helmet? I figure that's easier then asking for you to help them make it to the playoffs, there's somethings beyond the reach of mortal man or woman.
