        Here's an article to explain some of the plans posted here.

        It's from Mouse Unlimited.

          I must say I am also SUPER confused. Ok so there are theater,s and ride vehicles... do the Ride Vehicles enter the theaters? or are these 2 separate attractions?

            It is different than what I imagined, which is a land with an interactive Mother Tree in the center of Avatarland and various attraction surrounding it.

            This land seems so much like Universal Studios Hollywood where they have the Simpsons on several levels and a boat ride around it (tram like). There is no focal point. It's industrial buildings and concrete. Or so it seem.

                So their big E-ticket to rival the Harry Potter 3D flying simulator is an Avatar 3D flying simulator. Nothing like trying to top pigs with pigs.

                I don't care much for Avatar and as far as Soarin' goes I could take it or leave it. So for me this is snoresville all around. There's a boat though. I like boat rides. I'd prefer a not-Avatar boat ride, but what can you do?
                It bothers me when people selectively edit quotes to support whatever point they are trying to prove.

                  The show building is enormous. Just a rough estimate based upon the Soarin' show building addition to The Land, which is approximately 60,000 sq.ft.. If each theater is essentially a double, though take into account that it each new theater is more likely to be 1.5x the size of the first generation flying Imax theaters (my term), and there are 4 theaters. From SOarin' I'll assume that the queue uses 20,000 and 20,000 for each theater.

                  So if the Avatar theaters are about 1.5x the size that gives us 30,000 sq.ft. per theater, by 4 theaters. I will assume another 20,000 sq.ft. for the queue. So my guesstimate of 120,000 for the the theaters and another 20,000 for the queue (not including boat ride), this building will easily be 130-140,000 sq.ft.; not including the multiple levels for the queue, etc. That's double Space Mountain! WOW!

                    Its rather ignorant of you to call Harry Potter a "3D flying simulator."

                    Whats sad is that a giant simulator is suppose to top the most technologically advanced, comprehensive, and IMO one of the best dark rides on the planet. A simulator vs a multi-media dark ride.

                      OK, it's a giant, technologically advanced, comprehensive multi-media 3D Flying Simulator...

                        I keep trying to mark your posts as "helpful," but I'm usually informed that I have to mark the posts of at least 20 other Micechatters first.

                        (If only more people would respond to insults with humor. It beats censorship.)

                          So two rides instead of three.

                            WTF where is the Tron Lightcycle like ride that was planned? That was supposed to be the major e-ticket and Cameron was very excited about it. It was going to use the same ride tech as the Tron ride going to Shanghai

                                This. Avatar is okay and all, but I really wanted to see this happen.

                                  Am I the only one who isn't suprised that all Avatar Land is is Soarin'+? Its truly sad, but not surprising. I assumed when they announced it that it would have a similar ride system as Soarin'. I hoped for more, but then again this is TDO we are talking about.

                                    Ugh. My one and only hope for this land was that it wouldn't have a simulator because I really wanted WDI to stretch and prove what kind of epic work they can do. Aaaaaaand the whole land is centered around a giant simulator. I. Am. Disappoint.

                                      lol and some people wondered why Ive been hating on this idea for so long, this is just part of the craptacular thats coming. why couldn't they have just continued on with the good thing they had going and built australia or north america as a new land?

                                        I'm not surprised. If it does happen I wonder how it would effect the huge lines at Soarin
