News and Rumors 9/5/11 - 9/11/11

So sorry about the delay with posts this week!  I am officially in New Mexico now.  So yay on that front!

Now, on with the News and Rumors!

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


Magic Kingdom

  • Sorcerer's of the Magic Kingdom, a role-playing, attraction game was officially announced.  Debuting in early 2012, this new game allows for guests to have Merlin the Magician recruit them to become apprentice sorcerers and then help them with maps and clues that show where and how to defeat an army of Disney villains. 

Disney's Animal Kingdom

  • The band, The Tropicals will perform their last performance on Oct. 29th.
  • The rumor was correct.  Disney will indeed have a character lunch at Tusker House.  Starting Dec. 4th, Donald's Dining Safari Lunch will be a buffet that's available from 11am to 2:45pm daily and will vary in cost by season from $25.99 to $29.99 for adults and $14.99 to $16.99 for children ages 3 to 9.  Foods available will include spit-roasted meats, unique salads, creative vegetarian offerings, hearty stews and desserts, everything with an African flare to it.

General WDW News

  • In why didn't they do this sooner news...Disney is now sending reminder emails to guests 24 hours before their Dining Reservation is scheduled.  Included in the email are your confirmation number, location, date/time, and party size, along with a link to modify or cancel the reservation.


  • When Gaston's Tavern opens with the new Fantasyland, the rumor is that Disney will be serving some sort of frothy concoction, similar in nature to Butterbeer, that's found over at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
  • In MNSSHP rumors, Angelica will join Captain Jack Sparrow on this year's Pirates Float in the Boo to You Parade and Christopher Robin will be doing meets with the rest of the gang from the Hundred Acre Woods.

Yay for New Mexico! Hope you enjoy it there.

My husband and I are debating what kind of beverage it would be if this is true. I guessed something with raw eggs bc that is the only Gaston-like thing to me. I'm kidding, of course. Can't wait to see this! I'm getting more and more excited about the Fantasyland expansion. (I know... better late than never right?) - Stelle
