News & Rumors 10/19/09 - 10/25/09

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 Princess Tiana Showboat Jubilee officially starts tomorrow. To check out a sneak peak, watch this video from fellow podcaster, Lou Mongello. Showtimes will be 12:15pm, 2:00pm and 3:45pm. Those who cannot meet Tiana and Prince Naveen on the Riverboat will apparently be able to do so in Liberty Square.
  • A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas is coming to the Magic Kingdom this holiday season. The show will take place on the Rockettower Plaza Stage (former known as holding the monstrosity show, Stitch's SuperSonic Celebration) and will feature Tomorrowland characters Mike Wazowski, Buzz Lightyear, and of course Stitch. The characters (and some back-up dancers) will bring guests Holiday songs with a Tomorrowland feel to them. This show is expected to take place during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Parties and is to kick off Nov. 10th.
  • The recently announced ESPN Innovention Lab is now officially up and running at the Wide World of Sports.

  • It's being rumored that Space Mountain may include an on-ride photo section once it reopens from it's refurb.
