It still isn't confirmed, nor has anything about any pink slips being given...howver, as I said, it does add weight to the rumors of one or both coming to DHS at some point.

Good luck on the apologies. I'd be shocked if some on here bite at that article since it wasn't a press release from Disney itself. Heck, I doubt they will even give the OP credit after they have visited the new Star Wars land once it is built. Of course, that is all rumor though as there hasn't been a press release. LOL

I think the point is that I can link you to an article from a few years ago saying a Monsters Inc coaster is confirmed for DHS. Guess what? It never happened.

I don't think any one is saying the OP is lying or that Cars/Star Wars is never coming. They are just saying a CM rumor and a rumor article is not an actual confirmation.

Ah, but if you point that out, you're all negative and a Disney hater and all that...

I guess my main thing is that the thread was going fine until someone thought they needed to inject negativity without adding anything productive themselves and figured it was their responsibility to say that ppl don't have the "right" to post on here what they may have heard from a cast member as being confirmed. Then I would be shocked had those same individuals then taken that article as confirmation.

They didn't necessarily say the OP was lying but they bash anything useful that the OP might have said just because they said confirmed in the title.

Not discrediting your mention of the Monsters Inc. rumor or calling you a Disney hater as stated above.

It's mostly semantics, I'll admit. But people have been burned by so many rumors that they want "confirmation". So when someone says "confirmation" people expect something official.

And no matter how much you trust a CM friend or a website, they are not official sources.

~No snark intended...

~I don't know, but this "official" and "confirmed" thing has gone overboard. And, I noticed that no other forum here does this. This board used to be fun and rampant with discussion and speculation, now it's buckling under this structured rigidity that has no place in cordial discussion, it's become incredibly juvenile and pedantic. It's like we're in grade school or something, even that's an insult to the grade schools. A poster was kind enough to post a source, and now we're questioning the source. I think the news is awesome, even if it doesn't materialize. Come on guys, lighten up.

Agreed! I think the article is great and just another instance of someone adding to the possibility of it being true, which would be a nice rejuvenation to HS.

Why? No confirmation or any reason to believe the original claim of pink slips. The OP sugested closing of lights was imminent. It might happen. Doesn't make the OP right

No other forum on here allows rumors, or tries to combine it with news.

Also, as has been mentioned before, when this forum was moved up into the Planning Forums, it received a LOT more traffic. In it's old place, it was the same stalwarts that typically inhabited it, and it policed itself better. Now a lot of those people are gone, and there has been a HUGE increase in the number of "This is NEWS because I got it from a CM..." type posts - many of which lately haven't been true.

Don't forget, even the DIS said that they had it on very reliable sources that CarsLand was taking over LMA and the Backlot, and the announcement was coming that week - and it didn't. And the rumors cooled for a while too.

I'd also point out that the OP said LMA was closing to become Star Wars Land, but the article says it is Cars Land, and Star Wars will take areas to either side of Star Tours (possibly yet to be determined). This shows how the rumors twist and get mixed up.

I'm starting to think we really need a sticky thread here to warn posters...anything coming from general cast members, bus drivers, etc. are treated as rumors until confirmed by statements or press releases from the executives, and posts should not state they are confirmed unless backed by those sources.

And even then, confirmation is not a guarantee it will happen or soon, as history has shown us...

One thought I had...if Kalogridis does get the money for this...I wonder what happens to Avatarland? Does it still go forward? Get scaled back? Hmm...since Disney hasn't actually given much details, they could scale back without too much backlash...

I've been on record as being one of the ones that loves that idea of Pandora at the parks, I think it will be freaking amazing, but if Disney only approves 2 of the "rumored" projects, the first one I would cut would be Avatar.

Carsland is proving to be a major success right now, and we all know that Star Wars will stand the test of time and is as much as a sure thing as movie franchises come. Star Wars would be one of the best things that has happened at WDW in a long long time.

IMO, out of the three projects, only Star Wars Land would actually be competition for Harry Potter - whish we know is still lingering in the back of Disney execs' minds.

Never saw Avatar so I'm not qualified to say whether that's a good idea or not. I have two boys who LOVE Cars...and are waiting anxiously for Planes. They would LOVE Carsland but I do wonder how much they will put in DHS since they put a lot of Cars elements in AoA. Even with our penchant for Cars, Star Wars will be the BIG event.

Note: I read elsewhere that the immediate proposal is add the Cantina as a restaurant and some more theming elements. Hope Disney has a lot more planned than that!
