Ken sent me this today. I'm kind of excited by the thought of it.

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has announced extensive plans to convert the old Discovery Island in Bay Lake to a new /Lost/-themed attraction. Lost Island is set to receive guests by the Summer of 2011, a year after the show concludes its six-year run on ABC. ...

The immersive experience will bring guests to the islands in disparate ways, providing two distinct experiences per each trip to the island. The attraction is also unique as the exploration of the island in its entirety forms one complete experience; however, each area of the island works as an individual attraction.

"We have this great experience for the Swan station, which guests get to tour as if they were the survivors first discovering the infamous 'hatch'. But suddenly things go wrong and this station tour becomes a ride! It's an extension of the Imagineering used in rides such as The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror and Star Tours taken to the next level!", explained [Celandine Coda, vice chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts].

Wow. If only I watched the show I MIGHT have an idea of what you're talking about. "Go down the Hatch", as in Richard? Gross.

I'm excited to go to Disney Gay Days 2010, if only to camp out in Camp Wilderness!!! You want to come protect me from bears? Or be the bear I need protection from? And by "protection", I mean condoms, of course.

I've never seen Lost so I'm just as lost as (F)redddy.
