Ideas for an Avatar Ride
Walt Disney World:
How to translate the movie into a ride?
Maybe Disney could use a similar ride system as Forbidden Journey and make it move it through the Pandora jungle; it would have AAs.
A Soarin type of ride could be another option.
Who knows, maybe in 5 years Disney will have the technology to take us to our own Avatars!

In 5 years maybe we'll find out what's going into AK instead of Avatar..... ;-)) hahaha oh yeah, I went there!
We know a flight attraction is coming, and Disney was just testing a flying dragon, so that could be a sign.
"Soarin': Avatar Edition"
Soarin is Cameron's favorite ride, but I think the flying dragon has something to do with a ride.

"Visual Flight Rules" - Pilot the Aircraft seen in the movie through the storms. (Motion Sim)
Avatar does not mix with Animal Kingdom, except the conservation message. Either sell the rights to Universal or build it in another Disney park.
Disney isn't going to change their minds, imaginnering has already began with construction later this year. While DHS would of been a better choice, AK is the second best.
They actually begin construction next year.
Late 2012 or Very Early 2013. Either way they aren't selling the rights.
Disney should take Journey to the Center of the Earth's concept and create the same ride but with Pandora's plants and animals instead. The AA lava monster at the end could be replaced by the black creature that goes after Jake. I have a feeling that they will do it. It would be a missed opportunity if they don't do it.

Whatever they do, I rather not see those prototype ultra light dragon flyers imagineering was supposedly testing out recently, flying around the land. I'm willing to suspend disbelief for the sake of good show, but it's kinda hard to ignore a noisy prop engine sticking out the back of a Dragon/Bird like creature when they are supposed to gracefully soar through the air.
Disney has made some big mistakes like Body Wars, Mission Space and the original CA. I went to see the Avatar movie and liked it; however I don't know anyone who is a big follower of the whole Avatar thing. I think they could have come up with something better.

Same could be said for Cars and that's been a huge success for California Adventure.
One more thing. They are planning to make a huge sequal to the first one. So this might be bigger than we think.
The only people that I have ever heard say they didn't like Cars are here on this site. Cars was a huge hit with kids, and that is why it is doing great at DCA.
