But I'm skeptical about any rumor that says they are going to increase the length of the ride. I think one of the main considerations for abbreviating it in the first place was due to availability of space. If you look at a satellite view, you'll see that there IS a small plot of undeveloped land to the SW of the PotC building. But they would be cutting off a backstage service road if they expand out there. Plus, a project of that scope would pretty much mean gutting everything and starting over from scratch. That seems highly unlikely.
They can easily re-route that service road around a new/addition to the show building. Make it more of a 90* angle instead of the 45* angle it is now. That would be a simple/easy workaround.
