News and Rumors 1/6/12 - 1/15/12

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


Magic Kingdom
  • Dumbo's re-opening date has been pushed back.  Instead of opening on Feb. 17th, it's re-opening in Storybook Circus will take place now on March 12th. 
  • Sorcerer's of the Magic Kingdom is currently doing play testing.  I've heard that testing is typically occurring on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.  It is rumored to be rolled out at the end of February.

  • In Tutto Italia's recent refurb, a brand new wine bar is being built.  The new bar will be called Gusto and will open when the resturant reopens on the new date of April 28th.

Disney's Hollywood Studios
  • Lights, Motors, Action Extreme Stunt Show will have a short refurb from April 29th - May 2nd. 

Disney's Animal Kingdom
  • Mor Thiam, who has been performing near Tamu Tamu Refreshments, will have it's final performance Jan. 28th. 


  • Peter Pan's Flight is rumored to get it's Next Gen Queue starting around Jan. 16th - March 6th.  The attraction should remain open while the work is done. 
  • Rumors have been flying that in the near future the California Grill could be closed for a refurbishment.  Some rumors are even saying that the refurb could see a whole new restaurant put in it's place.  This is ONLY rumor.  No real idea if there is real substance to it, but since I've heard about it a few different places, I thought I should report it. 
  • Pixie Hollow may be returning to Epcot during the Flower and Garden Festival.

Please - for the sake of English teachers who LOVE Disney - use the correct possessive form of "it" - "its", no apostrophe.Thanks!
