Disney is closing parts of Dinoland, but now for a limited-time guests can participate in a new experience.
Dinoland Back Story
DinoLand U.S.A. originally started as a small highway town when an amateur fossil-hunter found dinosaur bones. Then, they saved up their money to purchase this area to research everything they could about dinosaurs.
Chester and Hester, two locals, were determined to make easy money. So, they converted their gas station into a fossil souvenir shop. Competing with dinosaur hunters, they turned their parking lot into a small amusement park called Chester and Hester’s Dino-Rama.
Having two groups “run” this area explains why parts of it look so different. Chester and Hester’s Dino-Rama looks more like a carnival with its games, carnival food, and colorful character meets.
Then, the rest of Dinoland U.S.A. features dinosaurs and lends itself to the explorers. Restaurantosaurus is geared toward exploring campers while the Dinosaur attraction and boneyard are all about this prehistoric creatures.
The End of Dinoland?
Disney already demolished the Primeval Whirl attraction. It was a spinning wild-mouse style roller coaster that dipped, dived, jerked, and spun giving guests motion sickness and/or an awful headache. A few weeks ago, Dino Diner disappeared.
During the D23 Expo last month, Josh D’Amaro in an announcement explained as “blue sky” or something they are exploring, there is something new possibly coming to Animal Kingdom. For the first time ever, Zootopia and Moana are coming to Dinoland!
