    Re: Ideas on how WDW can compete w/ Potter (Star Wars?)

    Disney doesn't have the theme park rights to Avatar. Universal already does and there is word that once they lose the rights to Spider-Man, they're going to change The Amazing Adventures to an Avatar-themed attraction. I personally am surprised Disney didn't pick up the rights to the Tolkien stories when they could have. Having a large, immerisive world based on Middle Earth would have easily off-set any potential loss to Potter.

      Disney has to be careful, look at the boat they would be in if they had done a big, immerisive park/section on the "Swiss Family Robinson" all those years ago! At least now we are only stuck with a tree Don't get me wrong, I still climb that tree everytime I'm down there, but in todays draws, it's not a big one.

      The same goes for Harry Potter, who's to say what the draw will be in a couple of years. The series is done, and this summer the last movie will be out. Old Harry might just drop off the map and Universal is stuck with a whole section dedicated to an old book and movie series.

        Like Jurassic Park.

          Has this been confirmed, I've only heard rumors that Universal picked up the rights, and that they were planning on using it as a replacement for Terminator, not Spiderman.

          If I had to guess, I would say that Universal is going to replace Spidey with Transformers once the time comes. Considering they are only building Transformers attractions in parks without Spidey, this would make sense.

          Personally, I always thought that Universal would pick up the Avatar rights (based on the Terminator connection to James Cameron), I just thought it would be cool to see Disney do something with the franchise.

          There are franchises that go through peaks and valleys. Jurassic Park is on a low note, IMHO because of JPIII (an awful movie), but a solid fourth film could easily bring that franchise back from extinction.

            Here's a different idea. While this wouldn't be a draw to rival Potter, it could still be a great addition with a large established fan-base. What if Disney brought Doctor Who to the United Kingdom at Epcot?

            The experience could include entering the TARDIS, with a cleverly hidden show building as the interior. The adventure could feature the Doctor's greatest foes, including the Daleks and Cybermen. I could think of half a dozen great adventures that could be created in attraction form.

            Potter is not the only mind-blowing adventure to come out of Great Britain!

              An Avatar 4D attraction is expected to replace Terminator 3D, not Spider-Man.

              I for one, would be very sad to see Spidey go, no matter how great its replacement will be. I think they should have both Spidey and Transformers.

                Beastly Kingdom would definitely bring a lot of people in. I also think most of the Future World pavilions could be updated. Imagination! (the Imagination Institute tie-in with Eric Idle is no longer relevant. Or good), UoE, WoL, and the Seas, and Test Track definitely need huge changes or replacements. I don't think The Land or SPACE needs to change though. Also a new country with a huge ride, like others have said, would be good. Maybe some new scenes in the Great Movie Ride?

                  Any day now Davy Crockett is going to come back in a big way.
