Truth: This land fits in Animal Kingdom because of it’s income potential, James Cameron and Disney are going to churn out at least a half a dozen Pandoras, and the merchandise they will see makes it worth it! All said, Disney SOOOOO overdue for ANYTHING new, I’ll take it.

Looks cool. Movie was a ripoff from the kids cartoon Fern Gully but the rides look nice. I would have liked to see something real in nature duplicated there like a small version of Victoria falls. Alwyas like the little waterfalls at the end of the safari. Could have traveled through the mists on a hot day!
