    Jim hill is reporting that theres been a name change and a change in the way this new park will operate:
    http://jimhillmedia.com/blogs/jim_h...ingdom-and-jambo-to-disney-s-jungle-trek.aspx

    "That's right. WDW's answer to Discovery Cove has undergone a rethink. Given that those who were surveyed back in February weren't all that enthusiastic about WDI's initial attempt at a niche park, the guys in Glendale are now taking another stab at this project. Ditching many of the ideas & concepts that would to have made Night Kingdom a truly unique guest experience."

    "The upside of this revamp is ... Most of the "adventures" that were originally proposed for Disney's Night Kingdom are still in place for Jungle Trek. You can still handfeed the hippos. You can still go spelunking in a cave and then encounter some bats. You can enjoy a dazzling stage show inside of a state-of-the-art theater (Though -- that said -- where Disney's Night Kingdom was supposed to have a 2000-seat theater which would have allowed this niche park to entertain all of its visitors at the same time ... Now Disney's Jungle Trek will have a much smaller, more affordable theater which will then present several shows daily in order to accomodate the crowds)."

    OMG....so they're planning on reducing the amount of time you can be in the park (5 hours) yet still wanting to charge about $300 per person admission :mad:
    I bet that's before tax too :rolleyes008:


    I was really interested in this project but, the new plans have me running in the opposite direction!

    We could save them so much money and probably know more about what Disney guests want and need than they do!!!

    Zero interest in prior suggested project; even less in this one.

    Is it possible to have negative interest? :unsure:
