News & Rumors 8/3/09 - 8/9/09

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.

  • The list for the Candlelight Processional has been updated, taking away To Be Arranged for the date of Dec 6-8 and replacing it with Anika Noni Rose.
  • Starabilias at DTD has now closed. No word on what is replace it at the current time.
  • The Living With the Land boat ride is expected to be back up from it's refurb on Nov. 1st.
  • Kouzzina, which is the new Cat Cora restaurant that will be replacing Spoodles is expected to open on Aug. 15th.
  • Disney's newest Princess, Princess Tiana is apparently going to have a show/meet and greet of some sort. It's going to begin with a Mardi Gras style musical parade called Tiana's Showboat Jubilee with musicians and performers parading in Frontierland. As the procession reaches the Liberty Belle dock, guests will be able to board the riverboat and meet some of the characters from the movie. The explanation of this is quite unclear as it is not certain whether the boat will move from the dock while the meet and greet (and another type or performance) takes place or whether it will be stationary. Look for more details when they are released, but this is expected to start on Oct. 26th.
  • In the 2010 Vacation Packages, there have been some interesting additons included. (Much like the mini golf coupon and the Planet Hollywood one.) Some of these include 15% off the regular price of a body treatment or water therapy at the Grand Floridian or Saratoga Springs, 10% off the regular price of all activities at Sammy Duvall’s Water Sports Centre at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, additional discounts at Walt Disney World marinas and fishing excursions
  • The Tin Toys exhibit in the Japan Pavilion at Epcot's World Showcase is apparently closed, possibly for good.
  • It is rumored that the Free sessions that were included with the Food & Wine Festival at Epcot now may have an additional charge placed on them, if you are wanting to attend.
