Big Announcement Coming

From the blog of an attractions CM I follow on tumblr:

Quote:
Something is being announced at Walt Disney World in the coming weeks.
Itís going to be a big announcement. And no itís not MyMagic+. Preserving the magic that is Walt Disney World, I can only say to keep eyes, ears, nose, and your other senses out when the announcement is made.

What I can say is: No matter what the announcement is, it will enhance your time here at Walt Disney World.

That is all.
Any speculation? The first thing that comes to mind is Avatarland and the rumored Soarin'-type ride - that would explain his "eyes/ears/nose" comment.

My first thought with mention of your senses is that they are going to redo the Figment ride. Maybe restore it to the original.

If only this were true, probably CarLand...TDBIASWS.

I can say that this big announcement is referencing something that is Magic Kingdom specific

Someone on one of the disboards made a comment the other day that she saw two cast members walking around in DHS holding what looked like plans, and one said something about having enough room to build something. Perhaps you can find it by doing a search. I thought it sounded fishy and too vague at the time, but who knows.

There are definitely some rather extensive plans happening at DHS, as well as some attraction closings.

Star Wars trumps Carsland, WWoHP, Avatar and LoTR.

Oh the joy they could bring with Star Wars--and I am not even that big a fan...but it is part of my childhood, teenage years, young adulthood and now I get to see my 10 year old nephew enjoy it. The legacy it represents is huge--espeically with those of us in our 40s.

I thought it might be specific to MK since the blogger I quoted works there. Interesting. Spectromagic? Rapunzel bathrooms/whatever else is going in back there? So curious!

Spectro is still rumored to not be returning, and the bathrooms are a dual meet and greet area! Neither of those are the announcement though!

If this is legit, I agree it's gotta be Hollywood Studios. After hearing the report of imagineers going over space once backlot and lights, motor, action are gone... might be CarsLand.

Funny that I follow this blog too. I actually messaged him asking for more information. Even though I'm a CM, I feel out of the loop! I'll see what he says! I have heard some pretty solid reports about a definite CarsLand at DHS though!
