Disney Rumors

Rumors are GREAT within the Theme Park community!

When we are planning a vacation to Orlando, Los Angeles or anywhere in the world, the goal is to see something new and exciting. That’s when you’ll get news and reports about things that are being talked about, planned or even in the construction phase appear online…like a story about the Monster’s Inc

Rollercoaster promotional video that was uploaded on the Disney Cast Member “Hub” for 8 hours and taken down (and never seen again)

I’m a huge fan of weeding through the stories that are obvious click-bate and those that are coming from reputable sources. The community is growing constantly and with every new website comes a new voice and a slew of “insiders” to talk about what’s going where.

So let’s get into the rumors that are interesting to me. OH, and please note that these are 100% rumors (and wishes), and until you hear it directly from The Walt Disney Company PR…it’s just that:)

With Tron Coaster opening soon, Tomorrowland is in the midst of an identity crisis.

  • What’s going to be going into Stitch’s Great Escape?
  • Will Carousel of Progress be able to hold it’s place on ever-growing valuable land?
  • How does the Tomorrowland Speedway actually last with the gas-guzzling non-environmentally-friendly cars?
  • Does Space Mountain finally get it’s Disneyland-esc upgrade (two tracks to one and updated ride vehicles)


The talk has growing within the walls of Imagineering about a possible re-do of the Main Street table service restaurants. Does this mean that we’re going to see an upgrade from Tony’s Town Square and The Plaza?

Another hot topic was the addition and subsequent pausing of adding a new theatre behind Main Street USA, which would have basically created a new street permanent walk-way to Tomorrowland. You’ll know this walk-way well if you’ve visited the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, as it’s the spot where they hand out the candy bags and goodies when you first check in.
