Walt Disney World Resort’s Animal Kingdom theme park is home to six different areas: the Oasis, Discovery Island, Pandora – The World of Avatar, Africa, Asia, and DinoLand U.S.A.
Each land is totally unique, with different animal encounters, attractions, and offerings. However, one of these lands is an endangered species. We’re talking, unfortunately, about DinoLand U.S.A.
DinoLand U.S.A. is currently on Animal Kingdom’s chopping block, and at this time, nobody knows for sure what the new land will look like.
Disney has suggested a Moana-themed area or a Zootopia-themed area to replace the lovable bag of bones that is DinoLand U.S.A., but there have yet to be any confirmed plans.
However, it’s no secret that DinoLand U.S.A. is destined for extinction. Anyone visiting Disney Park’s dinosaur-themed area can see that it’s been turned into a ghost town.
With one of the most prominent attractions in the land already gone (Primeval Whirl) and another on its way (DINOSAUR), DinoLand U.S.A. has become less popular than ever.
That being said, one attraction was recently closed for refurbishment and is only days away from reopening!
The Boneyard is one of the more hands-on Animal Kingdom attractions. This prehistoric play area looks like a fossil dig site, where archeologists can dig up dinosaur bones, run across a rickety rope bridge, and more.
The play area is a huge fan favorite among kids visiting the Disney Park, but it’s currently been closed for refurbishment.
In fact, it’s still closed. But, according to Walt Disney World’s official website, the Boneyard should open again on June 14, giving kids a chance to blow off some steam and play in the dig site again soon.
