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.
It’s going to be a big announcement. And no it’s 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 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!

Oh yes, of course - I meant to include it in my original post but forgot. The original blog post is here.

Oh, that's funny! Out of curiosity, what's your role? Maybe he knows because it's something specific to attractions?

If it has anything to do with the Studios' backlot I wouldn't be surprised. They've been clearing out sound stages and prepping land the past couple of years for something (was supposed to be Monsters Inc. ride but alas no announcement yet). Whatever it is though, I look forward to its announcement.

I really am hoping for something Star Wars related. Ever since the Lucasfilm purchase I've been on the edge of my seat waiting for some more Star Wars at the parks.
