News & Rumors 6/15/09 - 6/21/09

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.


  • In essentially unprecedented news: After just 6 short weeks, Stitch's SuperSonic Celebration will officially be closing. The show, as it is in this version will not be coming back, however, it is rumored that they may create another show revolving around Stitch. Also, it's been said, that when a new version opens (possibly in the fall), look for seating and shade to be put in place.
  • As was reported in last Wednesday (well, Tuesday's) blog dining reservations can now be made by the general public. For more information and a step by step process of how it works, please read last Wednesday's blog post.
  • A new exhibit, Diana-The People's Princess will be coming to the now empty Virgin Megastore, at least for a limited time. This will be a major exhibit featuring lots of royal artifacts, which will showcase the life of Princess Diana. This will be a ticketed tour, with tickets costing $14.50 for adults (ages 10 and up) and $5 for ages 3-9 and the hours of operations being 11 am - 11 pm. The exhibit is expected to be open in early July and is expected to run through Nov. 30th.
  • There will be a new Dessert Party location available...but this time it will be located at the Magic Kingdom and as of right now, will only be lasting during the summer. The parties will take place at the Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station and will include a prime spot to enjoy Wishes. This new Dessert Party is expected to start June 23 and last through Aug. 28. The party will open nightly to guests, one hour prior to Wishes and will have a lots of different desserts (including specialty ones for dietary restrictions) and beverages. Guests are encouraged to make reservations, although walk ups will be included, if space allows. The price is $17.99 for adults and $9.99 for ages 3-9. Prepayment is required. To book your spot, call (407) WDW-DINE.


  • It has been rumored, yet again, that for the supposed Star Tours refurb, you may need to wear 3-D glasses...however, the use of the glasses will be less like Muppets and more like the recent 3-D movies that have come out within the past few years, like Up. Also, it's being rumored that Star Tours will have a bunch of different beginnings, middles, and endings that will allow for the ride to be randomized and mean more chance of re-ridablity.
  • Disney could be adding something called the "Enchanted Forest", which is a place where Princesses always seem to run into each other. This new addition is rumored to be a part of Toontown.
