    By my guess, I wouldn't expect it to be anything more than a sad attempt at viral marketing.

    From what I also gathered, Beastly Kingdomme is a good as dead because Avatar has gotten over it's rough spot in the development process and will be taking over Camp Minnie-Mickey in the future.

    The dragon is rumored to go to Shanghai once it opens, however.

    Please remember that this is all speculation on my part, and please take all my comments with a grain of salt.
    I agree with you. Just as with numerous other cool R&D derived elements (Lucky?, Wall-E?), they are generally only used in rare occasions (if at all). I don't see this dragon being used in any significant manner, especially as in a day-to-day operation. As you mentioned, it will most likely be used in special promotional settings.

      From what I understand, the dragon is all about Fantasyland right now. Nothing Animal Kingdom related.

        Here is a new video put on DisneyPark's Channel about the "Dragon".



        Along with this posted on the "BelieveInFantasy2012" youtube channel.

        One can only speculate.

          ... and the dragon has officially made it's first (and only) appearance in front of the media tonight. A one-night only event.

          Sorry folks... it was just an excuse for management to show off it's new toy. But what a toy it is!

                Unfortunately not, it was just a media stunt for the press and to build public hype for the grand opening.

                  That's a shame. It looks like the best feature!

                    I still say SHAME on Disney for doing this ONLY for media and not guests.
