  • [Pictures] Another Beastlie Kingdomme hint

    I was looking through all of our AK merchandise and I found the opening day shirt we bought which shows anther scrapped promise of BK, or at least a scrapped hint at an eventual BK.it shows the AA dragon that was supposed to be where the growling cave is/was on the old Discovery Boats.

    I noted on my last visit all the other hints a the land that never was, down to the lamps near the ticket area and Oasis, to the benches and the logo that still contains the dragon. Just thought I'd share the pic ^^. And by the way, can anyone identify the little tiki-hut looking things on the island right next to the dragon?

    ummm I would love to look at the photo but they can't be seen you have to use your email address and pass to see them. *sigh* I still hold out some hope that the Beastly Kingdom may someday see the light of day and be built. I know that there isn't much hope though.

        unfortunately, its probably gone for good, although I do imagine the park will get another "land" at some point

            I like to think the idea isn't gone forever; as long as Joe Rhode is in charge of AK, there will always be someone to advocate it. But it may take years or even decades.

              Just some armchair imagineering but...if Beastlie Kingdomme doesn't get built I would love to see some of its elements incorporated into the Magic Kingdom's Fantasyland. The absence of water as previously featured in the Submarine Lagoon has made Fantasyland look rather barren. I think the Fantasia boat ride would be a perfect fit on the footprint of the old lagoon. It would even be more thematically appropriate than 20,000 Leagues...and would restore water as a visual element in the land...and would give the MK a unique substitute for Storybookland. Also, since Fantasyland at MK is lacking a big e-ticket coaster in the vein of the Matterhorn...Dragon Tower could fit the bill admirably. It could be built in any number of locations...including a part of large chunk of unused land north of the berm, or even in place of unispring Toontown Fair. Of course a clone of DCA's Little Mermaid is likely to be built in place of the sub lagoon. But this could easily be built instead in many other locations...including beyond the berm.

                I would love to see it built. I just think its more likely that another land like Australia by the Nemo show or a North America in the current Camp Minnie Mickey section.

                But I would sure love to see those giant talking bats from the original concepts

                    There is space enough left for two new lands...there is the Beastlie Kingdomme plot of course, currently partly occupied by Camp Minnie-Mickey. Then there is the large chunk of land north of Asia. This land was supposed to be part of a large boat ride called "Tiger Rapids Run" featuring real animals...the Asian equivalent of Kilimanjaro Safaris. The budget got slashed and instead we ended up with Kali River Rapids...which occupies only a small part of the area intended for Tiger Rapids Run. On the good side this means a large chunk of land remains for future expansion...most likely as a whole new land.

                      Have a look at google maps... that land north of Asia is *cleared*. Some of it is marked as "Everest" by good-meaning (but misinformed) google volunteers. It's clearly not Everest (which is visible nearby). So what *is* it for??

                        It has been cleared for some while, but no evidence of any construction. One popular internet rumour a while back was for Australia to be built in that area...

                          I could envision a recreation of the old "Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland", but with real animals. I think it would be a good fit...

                          Animal Kingdom isn't DisneySea-perfect but still pretty nice, and hopefully will only get better with time.
