News and Rumors 2/14/11 - 2/20/11

News and Rumors are gathered from various different sources. All rumors are rumors and are to be taken as such. 


Magic Kingdom
  • Ever since the closing of Toontown, Mickey has been a busy mouse, holding meet and greets all around the park! As kind of a reminder/overview, guests can find the Big Cheese in a few locations, including Tomorrowland, with Minnie, right next to Space Mountain, just to the left of the restrooms in the Tomorrowland Patio.  In Liberty Square, Mickey is doing meet and greets inside the Hall of Presidents. Finally, in Frontierland Mickey and Minnie can be found near the restrooms at Splash Mountain. With three locations, guests now have the chance to meet Mickey and Minnie in three different costumes.  (Which is something I really like and wish it would continue, though I know it won’t.)
  • The Town Square Exposition Hall appears to have been renamed as the Town Square Theater.  This location is where Mickey and Minnie and the Princesses will be doing their meet and greets later this year.
  • As a note, the official Grad Nights will be April 29th and 30th and May 6th and 7th.   

  • On Wednesday, guests who visit Innoventions West could meet Bill Nye, The Science Guy, as he talks about Engineering for National Engineering Week.  He will be appearing in the flex space at 11 am, noon, 1 pm, and 2 pm.  

Disney's Hollywood Studios
  • Work is continuing on a meet and greet area being worked on that is located near the Hat. 
  • Disney Junior: Live on Stage will be opening earlier than originally announced.  It is expected to open on March 4th. 

General WDW Resort
  • For those who missed my previous blog post, Disney came out with some information on their NextGen Project.  Make sure to read the previous post for more details.
