^^^ oh gosh, why to I believe this rumor. Because its fits in perfectly with the company as it behaves today. How could they do a Circus theme? Because its Cheap!!! Just like Chesters and Hesters, Carnival Rides theme to a Carnival set up in a parking lot. Cheap like a Fair, be it a Town Town Fair, or a bugs Fun Fair, or perhaps the even more vague "playland". All of these are examples of cheaped out theming. Yeah Walt loved the Circus, but the Circus was a much more romantic notion back in Walt's day. But they'll use that and an excuse for this "highly theme area that Walt would have love to see finally realized". For me, perhaps the reason they never really got a Circus theme to work is because even though Walt's like them, the Circus is somewhat the opposite end of entertainment quality then that of the Theme Park Walt Created. Then again so are the "fairs" and "playland" this company has sinced dreamed up, but it built them anyway.
I will hope its not the Circus theme that gets added to the new Fantasyland, but I suspect that it will very much be the case.
