So the Orange County Register put a story up on their website this afternoon about a recent interview with Ed Grier, Disneyland Resort President.
In the interview Ed doesn't give much new information, but rather just rehashes the old DCA expansion roster and acknowledges that Al Lutz was right several months ago when he broke the news that Disney was planning to manage two new hotels attached to GardenWalk.
The only real nugget of news (or statement not covered in publicity department spin and slime) was Ed's odd statement about a "new Tinker Bell attraction" coming to Disneyland in October. Excuse me?! Since no one has heard of this before, and nothing is currently under construction, I assume this will be a temporary meet n' greet type thing to help sell the new Tinker Bell DVD being released this October. Ed was very vague, and of course wrapped his statement in smarmy PR spin about loving Tinker Bell, but there it is.
I'm thinking he should have used a word other than "attraction", since that implies a ride vehicle, or at the very least a permanent structure housing the "attraction". A Meet N' Greet is not an "attraction", or at least shouldn't be rolled out to the press in vague language as such.
Does anyone know any more about the Tinker Bell attraction?
