Okay, so we tend to get a lot of repeat postings on this forum, most of them rumors . What rumors would you like to see officially ended, so we can move on? Here's my list:
1. DCA changing its name to Disney Adventure Park. Perhaps if they hadn't spent a billion dollars adhering to the California theme, this would hold water, but people propelling this idea are not thinking. Hollywoodland, Cars Land (Route 66), Buena Vista St...etc. This isn't to say a park has never changed its name, but other than the legalities which made MGM switch to Hollywood, file this under "Not Gonna Happen". Can we put this to rest?
2. Fantasyland getting an expansion. Now this might be interesting except for two huge problems. First, there's no where for it to go. Obviously the most intrusive thing in the land is the theatre, but with several plans in the works to bring live shows back to the park, closing it is not an option. The one thing that is, is possibly moving to include the area behind the festival arena, but (and this is the other problem) there are no set plans for this area as imagineering can't decide who gets that property. Toon Town, Frontierland, or Fantasyland. Not saying this will NEVER happen, but it's not in the works. Can we put this to rest?
3. People Mover returning. Okay....I want this as much as anyone, but it's not entirely Disney's fault. There are legal issues keeping this from happening. The only way to reopen this attraction is to put the same kind of safely systems that were recently installed on Alice (that caused no end of whining from fans). The creative team doesn't want to work with this restriction so that plus the high cost of running (and more importantly) maintaining such a ride, AFTER they decide what they want it to be has kept this in limbo for over a decade. Not saying this is a excuse, ( I think they need to make this a top priority), but it is the reason. Again, it's not a never, but it's not in the works. Can we put this to rest?
Thoughts? Your own lists?
