News & Rumors 5/4/09 - 5/10/09

News and Rumors are gathered from various different websites. One particular website is not favored over another. All rumors are rumors and are to be taken with a grain of salt.


News

  • Due to the Swine Flu madness...Disney has started selling hand sanitizer in most on property gift shops.
  • We spoke and Disney has answered...Disney is now offering two new vegetarian options for the Picnic in the Park dining program at DAK. The first one is a portobello mushroom and veggie wrap which is available with Teir 1. The second is an addition to the sides options and that is a tandoori spiced tofu and zucchini squash


Rumors

  • If info that I heard is to believed...Disney is now considering being a bit more aggressive in it's stance on building additions during these hard economic times. At first they were reluctant to do so, but it would now appear that work is being done to get some projects up and running. Possible rumors I've heard include:
  • A possible new E-ticket for Epcot. Possibly in the Wonders of Life pavilion.
  • A new E-ticket thrill ride for the MK that will possibly expand the park's area for the first time in 20 years.
  • A Pixar related roller coaster has now been greenlit for DHS in the Pixar Place area
  • Star Tours 2 is well on it's way. (As was rumored about last week as well.)
  • At AK, plans are to change Camp Minnie-Mickey...but this one might be a bit more long term.
  • Also, there may be some changes in the way Magic Your Way options are handled for tickets.
  • And the attractions they are looking at for the RFID technology that was mentioned in a previous blog post include: - Haunted Mansion - Peter Pan's Flight - Snow White's Scary Adventures - The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh - Monsters Inc Laugh Floor - Space Mountain - Spaceship Earth.
  • So, those were the biggest RUMORS of the week! But, I wanted to remind you all, since there are some big rumors to keep in mind...as always...these are just rumors, as we know, Disney could change their minds on all of this tomorrow. But for right now...these are things that are potentially possible.
