On the news that the Avatar addition to Animal Kingdom is moving forward, the only misgivings I have is that, if it will replace Camp Minnie-Mickey, we might lose Festival of the Lion King completely. That show is my all-time favorite live show in all of Walt Disney World, and I'd really hate to see it go away completely. Hopefully Disney will find a new home for it somewhere in Africa, where it actually really should be. Is a "Save Festival of the Lion King" letter campaign to Disney warranted at this point?
Right with you on this, Arnold. FoTLK is the biggest draw to DAK for me - not Everest. If it closes, I'll be much less motivated to book a 2013 trip. I believe they want to relocate it, but feel they need to build the new location first before closing the old one.

Yeah, that's pretty much how I felt when they took the Festival of the Lion King Parade and moved it to Walt Disney World for that show. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE that show, but every time I see it I want to start my own letter campaign to Disney:

Thank you for cleaning up and repainting our Lion King floats. We love what you've done with the puppets. Now glue them back together and SEND THEM BACK.
