    Removing Plaza Gardens and Swing Bands in Summer?

    Hey...just heard a rumor that Disney is planning on tearing down Plaza Gardens where the music groups and swing bands perform and putting in some sore of "Princess" or "Character Meet 'n Greet". Talked to a CM there tonight and at first completely denied it then sort of alluded that yes, it may be in the plans. When someone told him that Walt loved swing dance he replied that Walt also loved change.

    This would be a very sad ending to a great history.

    Has anyone heard anything about this or it is just a rumor that should be ignored.

    Hopefully this is like all rumors, false or disney back tracking due to fan disapproval

    To that end I'd like the Internet community to join me in reminding the Disney company that "it all started with Walt." As you can see below we've created some T-shirts, plus a few simple graphics that you can copy and paste into your websites to let folks know how you feel.

    I would be all for this if it meant getting a ride to replace the old fantasyland theater

    This is horrible. Of course it is just the kind of stupid idea I would expect to come from a one of the suits who control Disney corp. What a sad state of affairs.
    Greedy misers with no consideration for the show. Typical modern Disney Corp. behavior.

    If this happens, I will have lost all faith in Disney.

    Seeing as Plaza Gardens in on Main St, a Princess meet and greet doesn't fit the theme, but I really doubt this will happen. Maybe during the day, but the bands at night is such and old favorite for people. I'd hate to see it go.

    I actually heard a year ago that it was considered on the chopping block. I hope its not true, enough with the meet and greets.

    There are a lot of other things that need to be addressed first, i.e. all of Tomorrowland!

    I am a CM and that sounds super bogus to me. That is certainly not a rumor I have heard going around at all.

    Well, I hope they don't install the carousel there so as to have it up front like the rockets!
