Speculation Grows That Australia Will Soon Come to Disney’s Animal Kingdom
WESH 2 News in Orlando is reporting that Walt Disney World may be expanding yet another one of its theme parks – Animal Kingdom – and that the new land will be themed after the continent of Australia.
While Disney has not confirmed the rumors, the expansion would certainly complement the current continents represented at Animal Kingdom, Africa and Asia, without competing with any of the World Showcase offerings.
Disney is busy with expansion on all fronts. Construction continues at Magic Kingdom on the new Fantasyland addition, while work is underway on Hyperion Wharf at Downtown Disney, which will replace the defunct Pleasure Island.
