I'm wondering if the press event isn't the one that's running today through Friday at WDW. If so, it sounds like any interesting news would be coming on Friday. Here's the itinerary I found on www.wdwmagic.com:
Disney are holding some press-only events in late January to officially open some recent attractions, and to make some announcements for new projects. Remember, these are for invited press only. If you are in the parks during these days, check the operating hours, as they are sometimes modified to accommodate the events.
The event will kick off on Wednesday January 24th 2007 with the premiere event for Finding Nemo - The Musical. Later that evening, The Living Seas with Nemo and Friends will have it's grand opening event.
Thursday 25th January 2007 will see the events move over to the Magic Kingdom, where the media will get a first look at The Laugh Floor Comedy Club and the Cinderella Castle Suite.
Friday January 26th 2007 will see some future project announcements.
