The USA scene is a different topic. It too could be read that the original letter did not deny adding the scene
The all not true comment could apply to the statement of 'to effectively 'marginalize' the Mary Blair style'.Now the rumors are swirling that we are “ruining Walt’s creation.” I’ve heard that we are planning to remove the rainforest, add Mickey and Minnie Mouse, create an “Up with America” tribute, to effectively “marginalize” the Mary Blair style and Walt’s classic (all not true).
As I said.. it could have all been very sly wording.
Rainforest has certainly been CHANGED - but was it 'removed', no - its still there in some form. The letter doesn't deny CHANGING the scene.. only removing it.
My .02 is the scene's new implementation is a compromise.. when was that compromised made? We'll never know from the outside until an insider spills.. but I do believe the Letter was keenly crafted to deny reports without being inaccurate itself or revealing what was actually happening. The letter makes no claims that they are not CHANGING the attraction.. just denying certain claims that can be crafted in a specific way to infer one thing while being technical correct to another.
