    Re: 3/13: Rumor Rundown

    Please tell me the following is not true -

    NEW! Spaceship Earth post-show additions. The Bibbidi-Boppidi boutiques have started offering makeovers to Hanna Montana, the teen starlet. The cost is $110.
    I'm assuming that this is an editing error, as even Disney isn't so stupid as to put a kiddie boutique in the Spaceship Earth post show ???

    Other than that, thanks for posting the latest rumors!

    haha, whoops! Definitely an editing error. I preserve formatting by copy/pasting from a previous part of the file, and then am supposed to remember to write over the bolded part. My bad.

    Nice article there Kevin. It's quite interesting to see those Block Party Bash photos of the parade with Hollywood in the background! And with your reports that nothing is toned down, I wonder if they will have seasonally different versions of this parade? Also, how did the traffic control seem? I've heard it's already a nightmare and crowds are low.

    Nestle sponsorship discontinued. Nestle may soon drop its sponsorship of the Land pavilion. This would be consistent with parent company Carnation's departure from sponsorship of Disney parks reported previously.
    This is confirmed as it already occurred. I believe it was officially dropped last week.

    Nice article. I enjoyed seeing all the buzz-worthy items all put together, even though some of it will never see the light of day.

    One thing you forgot: The move of Night of Joy to DHS after a 25-year run at the MK.

    I don't know if you are aware of this...but in the Magic of Disney Animation, where you used to be able to meet Remy and Emile from Ratatouille, the next character meet and greet is going to be Wall-E and I was told by one of my friends who is a character attendant that he's going to be an actual robot. (Not sure if that part is true...but I know for a fact you will be able to meet Wall-E in the near future)

    They fixed the windmill? I had not gone to look in recent weeks, and will make the effort now. They are *just in time*. I'm about to run a Declining by Degrees scorecard in the coming weeks. This will help the batting average.

    "Future World central courtyard clutter. The mess of purple awnings and banners that provides a lot of visual clutter to the futuristic look of Epcot is likely to be removed in the near future. "

    What is wrong with the Innoventions Plaza awnings? I'm sure that you have no problems with the visual clutter outside the French Market.
