  1. Avatar Land in summer 2016?

    File this one under the folder titled “speculation,” but could Disney’s Avatar expansion open up by summer 2016?

    That may be the case based on an airport passenger traffic forecasting report made by the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority on Oct. 2, which tags Disney’s planned Animal Kingdom addition opening in just three years.

  2. Iger also expressed confidence in the yet-to-built Avatar Land planned for Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Disney has provided few details about the project since announcing it two years ago, and fan interest has been tepid on some Disney Internet forums.

    “We’re very excited about Avatar Land,” Iger said. “I think that will generate substantial growth down there.”

  6. earlier this week, I was told that two construction trailers have recently been set up out behind the barns that house the animals which wander the savannahs at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. And that these trailers will soon serve as construction headquarters for Phase One of the "World of AVATAR" project.
    Great article written by Jim Hill here:

    Walt Disney World is preparing for the arrival of Pandora. Today Disney confirmed the relocation of the popular “Festival of the Lion King” stage show at Disney’s Animal Kingdom from its longtime Camp Minnie-Mickey home to a new theater in the Africa section of the park, set to open in 2014.

    The show has been a staple of Disney’s Animal Kingdom since it opened 15 years ago and Disney has no plans of closing it any time soon. But with a themed land devoted to James Cameron’s soon-to-be “Avatar” series of films on the way, Disney is moving a few things around in the park to get ready for groundbreaking.

  8. Joe Rhode will NOT be attending the 15th anniversary ceremonies, as earlier planned. A lot of people are speculating that this means Avatar is behind schedule, or the original plan has been altered.
