  • [Idea] Blue Sky Lands that Fit DAK Better Than Avatar

    I got to brainstorming the other day and wrote a quick article for Theme Park Tourist. Basically, I tried to come up with new lands that would fit at Disney's Animal Kingdom better than Avatar does. Even if they don't fit better, things that would be more exciting to see. I do know that Avatar is coming, and that half of these lands are totally unrealistic. Call it Blue Sky. It was just me playing around with a couple of fun ideas to see what could fit there.

    7 New Lands for Disney's Animal Kingdom That Make More Sense Than Avatar | Theme Park Tourist

    My favorite is number 5. haha! Just fun
    I believe I chose the life of a tomb raider, because
    I'm addicted to the excitement that comes when life hangs in the balance.

    Another great article, Brian. You have a way with ideas.

    In my opinion, Mysterious Island is the only idea that would be better than Pandora. I really don't like the Beastly Kingdom idea, they scrapped it for a reason.

      I clicked on the article with very low expectations. I'm a little weary of arm-chair engineering when it comes with a negative attitude toward what Disney is actually creating. But I was pleasantly surprised, it's very well written and there's some really great ideas that I would love to see built at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

      But there's one overriding reason why Avatar Land being built at DAK is not only a really great choice, but by far the best choice:

      It won't be like anything, anywhere.

      All seven of your alternatives remind me of things I've already seen, and in a few cases they are things I've quite literally already experienced. That's not a bad thing but lets have a new land thats totally unique.

      Something that you can only experience at Disney's Animal Kingdom.

        Middle Earth, if Disney could get the IP from WB and Tolkien. But really, I think Avatar Land will be awesome, because Pandora is such an extraordinary place in the movie, and it would be cool to go to IRL

          I like the South America idea and the Mysterious Island Ideas. Bot would have made Animal Kingdom a huge draw. I hop Avatar with be fleshed out and they don't cut corners or costs. (Guests will be able to tell if they do) Narnia would be a great area in DHS....

            Great points! Very true. And thank you for the compliments. There aren't many concepts coming out of Disney, Universal, or their peers that I outright dislike. Just things that could be tweaked. Pandora WILL be great. We all know it. We might not agree with the choice and we might have things we'd prefer, but Disney is going all-in with this, and it's going to show.

              Good article - South America would be a great fit or a modernised version of the beastly kingdom concept.

              Other ideas I had was for either a fully realised cartoon land either as super sized toontown or the Mickeyville area proposed for Tokyo, that would add the imaginary land to the mix and give a character friendly land to keep the rest of the park ultra real

                My own personal favorites from the list are Narnia, Beastly Kingdom, and Middle Earth. I've been a huge supporter of Beastly Kingdom since day one and would LOVE to see it happen. Another way of approaching it, if they HAD to do it based on a movie would be to make it more themed to Maleficent, which would still allow for all the fairytale stuff.

                  Wow, that's a great idea. "The Moors" would make an awesome land, with room for most of Beastly Kingdom's original stories. One of those that's obviously pretty unlikely to get the green light, but a great concept! A Sleeping Beauty castle with a classic black-light dark ride, Avatar's boat ride re-purposed as sailing through the glowing Moors, a dragon roller coaster around the castle... I love the way you think, sbk1234!

                    Thanks. And I would have sold the idea to Disney for a LOT less than they paid Cameron for Avatar.
