I dislike when the Mom's panel gives out useless, incorrect information. Unless something major has changed, Rapunzel's tower is NOT a meet and greet area, it's only themed bathrooms to replace the ones near Peter Pan.

It might be the Pirates interactive "game" rumored to be coming to Adventureland.

Anybody else have any "big news" announcements from mini wage employees "in the know"?

I both love it...and look forward to the day when every person on earth learns the lesson to be learned in regards to these "sources"

I hope so. We just missed the opening of the new PoTC show at DHS when we were there in October, but we will be back this October. Would love it if this new game is up and running by then.

YES IT WOULD !!!

Along with a Star Wars Land and that park would become a favorite of mine instead of my least favorite of all Disney Parks

When I open the DVCMEMBER page it shows Carsland at Disneyland. Now considering that DVC california is not that many rooms and sold out I believe.
I think there is other reasons to have an opening page for DVCMember to show Cars Land than to advertise Disneyland. My guess is the announcement might be Cars Land coming to DHS.

Fingers crossed.

First, WDW is not positioned currently for another 500 mil- 1 billion reinvestment...

Second, if they should decide to strike again - I'd be ridiculously disappointed if it were a cars expansion:

First - Cars is not a great Disney property.
The first was good, the second was bad...and it's been exploited to sell walmart grade junk to the lowest common denominator for 8 years.

Second - it would be another example of the Eisner/Iger over-cloning that has reduced the effectiveness of there attractions for years.

And as to the dvcmember website - if you notice, they're always trying to sell us something that doesn't make a lot if sense.
Like aulani...
I suppose it's nice and all - but the majority of the experienced traveler knows you don't go to Hawaii to have Mickey waffles. It's a limited draw (especially to east coasters) and I don't find it incredibly more desirable than vero or HHI...because of the difficulty of getting there and all the other places I'd want to go.

So as far as putting pictures of Disneyland up - they have the GC villas, but I'm sure they want to have justification to build more. That's the goal.

I don't see the point of Carsland in WDW...on about a dozen levels.

But a big one is that they should not clone rides inside the US any longer...they have the money to be patient and build two individual destinations with their own merit.

I would love to see some major improvements made to Hollywood Studios. There are a few signature attractions, and then the rest seems like wasted space. I can't fill a full day in there even when I try.

To me the best investment they could make is a Star Wars expansion. I'd expect it to go at dhs or ak (possibly ewoky). Cars land would be an improvement at dhs, but Star Wars would generate an all ages attraction. I'd also do Star Wars before I did any avatar attractions.
