General WDW News
  • The new ambassadors have been named for Walt Disney World.  Norman Vossschulte and Jennifer Mason were named as the 40th Walt Disney World Ambassador Team and will serve from Jan. 1, 2011 – Dec. 31, 2012 
  • The Paddock Leisure Pool at Saratoga Springs will be having a refurbishment from Dec. 3rd - June 30th. 


  • Rumors are floating around that the Snow White Mine Coaster that was originally planned for the Fantasyland expansion, but was cut, may now be back in.  And of course, as I'd previously mentioned, it's still being said that Snow White's Scary Adventure may be going by the wayside.  Also, Goofy's Barnstormer may be keeping it's name, but will be given a circus theme instead.  
News and Rumors are gathered from various different websites. All rumors are rumors and are to be taken as such.
