Disney has been working on extending its theme parks for a while now, with high profile Avatar and Star Wars expansions bringing the resorts truly into the 21st Century.

And now it looks like the House of Mouse might be developing yet another immersive attraction behind closed doors: Indiana Jones Land.

For context, Walt Disney World has been working for some time on Animal Kingdom, one of the theme parks in the Orlando-Florida resort.

Pandora: The World of Avatar just opened there, for example, taking visitors to the setting of James Cameron's massive 2009 movie in an immersive, interactive new land.

Looking to build on this, there are rumours that DinoLand USA – a current fixture of Animal Kingdom – will be turning into Indiana Jones Land, according to the Orlando Informer.

Disneyland in California already has an Indiana Jones ride (as does Disneyland Paris), and the Orlando park will be following suit with 'Indiana Jones Adventure'.

The 'Fossil Fun Site' currently in place at Animal Kingdom would stay (with a little spruce) and there are rumours of a brand new ride cropping up as well.

Plus, there could be an Indiana Jones-themed hotel set to arrive at Disneyworld, similar to the Star Wars 'Starship' hotel experience that will accompany Star Wars Land (above) when it opens in Florida and California in 2019.

Nothing's confirmed yet, and building a whole new land would take time – it's suggested that Indiana Jones Land wouldn't be ready until the early 2020s.

Still, if the rumours are true, it's yet another reason to start saving for that trip to Florida.
