WDW Radio # 481 - Beastly Kingdom - The Walt Disney World That Never Was Long before anyone ever dreamed of Pandora: The World of Avatar, or even Camp Minnie-Mickey at Disney's Animal Kingdom, original plans for Walt Disney World's fourth theme park included an exciting, radical, new concept. This kingdom of animals was going to include not only those that were real, but once that were ancient and imagined... a kingdom to be ruled by lions, dinosaurs and dragons. This week, we will turn back the clock on our Wayback Machine and explore the land that never came to be - Beastly Kingdom. We discuss how and why this land of mythical beasts got on the drawing board, virtually tour the attractions and environments, look at why it never came to be, why we'll likely never see it at all, and where you can still find remnants of it in the park today.
