    There's rumors going around that Disney is planning to create an Indiana Jones Land at Disney's Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney's World.

    Here's one of the articles reporting the rumor:

    Also here's a great video recap addressing the story.



    Thoughts?

    I would love to see an Indiana Jones Land at Disney World. Putting it in the Animal Kingdom park seems a bit odd at first but Indy does encounter animals on his adventures. If they create a new storyline where Indy is after an artifact shaped like an animal it would fit the the park's theme.

    Indiana Jones and the Golden Jaguar, something along those lines.

    Animal Kingdom is easily the least thought-out and least visited of the Disney FL parks. It's understandable that Disney would want a major draw there. But Indiana Jones Land? Lucasfilm has historically treated the Indy franchise like an unwanted little brothe to SW in terms of merchandising, so it's rather surprising.

    They're probably doing it in conjunction with the upcoming film. Maybe animals are going to play a major part in it?

    I've never been to Disney World (or Disneyland for that matter) but apparently the Animal Kingdom's two largest sections are park themed to Africa and Asia. The rumor is that Dinoland will be removed and replace with South America in which Indiana Jones Land would be a section of that area. Make senses to me.

    I've been to Disneyland but it was quite some time ago (back in the '90s).
