Storybook circus is building some new buildings which I think may be a character meet and greet, quick service eatery and gift shop. The Ariel and Belle experiences open holiday season 2012. They are building Rapunzel's tower by the old Skyway station and there is a rumored interactive queue for Peter Pan. Seven Dwarf's Mine Train will open in 2014. They may shorten and change Country Bear Jamboree. They are building a Four Seasons in Golden Oak, a resident's community that is in construction. The refurbished Test Track will open November 30th. They are building Splitsville, a bowling alley in Downtown Disney. The Grand Floridan is adding Disney Vacation Club Villas. Lots of new things coming soon

Wow, I didn't know about that! The Peter Pan queue desperately needs some attention in my opinion, considering the fact that it is regularly packed and the line is really nothing special. I'm curious how it would be expanded as I remember the queue being somewhat cramped already. Maybe my memory is just fuzzy after so long. I'm not really surprised by the Country Bear Jamboree news because I never watch the show and it probably won't affect my trips.

I know Rainforest Cafe at DTD is being updated. The gift shop is being redone and a bar is being added. The exterior of the volcano is also being remodeled. Other than that the only change I can think of is the Characters in Flight balloon closing for testing, although it may be completed already.

EDIT: Apparently a balloon in Hong Kong made by the same company fell 20 feet due to losing helium during flight. The WDW balloon was taken down for inspection and there is a possibility it won't reopen.

They are tearing down Space mountain to make a garden based around The Curious life Timothy Green.

You are right. It is just a basic switchback. I think it will be like the Haunted Mansion. Thanks for adding I forgot about those.

Are you sure?!?! It seems unusual to destroy an e-ticket. Where did you hear this?

Yeah I heard that too.

BOG, The Little Mermaid ride, Gaston's Tavern, and the new Belle meet and greet are officially opening on December 6 with previews starting on November 19. Construction on AoA is pretty much done, if you hop over to the Resorts board you can see all the pictures/video of the work that's been done. You can see pics and such of the FLE on the Theme Park board too.

Same here. I also heard that they are re-theming Pirates of the Caribbean to Jake and the Never Land Pirates to attract younger kids.

Where did you two hear that? I'm not saying it's impossible. It just seems weird to tear down an iconic E-Ticket. Also they just had a massive refurbishment back in 2009 and added music in 2010. It seems like a better place for a garden would be in Animal Kingdom or EPOCT.

Don't listen to them. They're just trying to trick you. Space Mountain won't be closing down anytime soon.

The got rid of the Snow White ride, they are adding two mini castles. In 2014 a seven dwarfs roller coaster will be complete. One of the castles is Belle's castle and there is a character meal inside. It's a ball-themed meal. I believe it is only one table-service cred.
