There was an awful rumor floating around a while back that Rock'n'Roller Coaster was being changed to a Hannah Montana you have any idea if this is true, or what they're doing with RRC?

That rumor has been floating around for a while. I think it's just a rumor at this point...I haven't heard anything concrete. Plus, it would make no sense to turn the coaster into a Hannah Montana one at this point because the show only has, I believe a year left. If they were going to do that, I would think they would have done it a while ago.
