I'm thrilled about Pandora for one primary reason. I've always wanted to experience the Potter attractions as a real Muggle; somebody who has no understanding of that universe. Happily, I’m well versed in all things Potter, so I will never understand what it’s like to experience these places with no expectations.
I saw Avatar once...years and years ago. All I really remember about it was thinking it was "Dances with wolves” in outer space. I'm very excited to enter what is bound to be a massive and highly themed environment with very little preconceived notions about what I'm experiencing. That's exciting!
My one big wish is that the Imagineers learned a lesson from Islands of Adventure, but not from Harry Potter...from Jurassic Park.
What's one thing you see very little of on that huge island? Dinosaurs. There are some static photo ops, the figures on the River Adventure ride and now and the new Raptor encounter, other than that, there is the implication of dinosaurs.
I hope Pandora is chocked full of alien lifeforms, but not just visible on the rides. I want to encounter Pandorian (is that the right word?) life – animal and vegetable as freely as I encounter Earth’s life forms across the rest of Disney’s Animal Kingdom park.
The thing I’m most unsure of is how they will profit on this beyond increased ticket sales? The potter-verse is full of things I want to have, eat and drink. How will Disney fulfill that desire on Pandora? Beyond Banshee plush what are those merchandise and F&B items that come from that planet that I will be lining up to hand over my cash for?
What is on your Pandora wish list?
