I can find blog and opinion posts saying its a legend and saying its not, do you have an authoritative source?

I believe the issue is marketing rights, not necessarily the right to still display the theater. I think Disney just wanted to rebrand the image of the park into something they had more control over.

I can also believe it may be a royalties issue, maybe disney has all the rights to use it, but stick it on a million t shirts and they'd owe more money to the owners, etc... (still basically a marketing rights issue).

RnR and ToT are also some of my favorite rides in all of WDW (along with Star Tours, The Haunted Mansion, Everest and Test Track)! Just don't change them very much (the random # of drops in ToT was a nice change, but these attractions don't need more change than that!) I'm dying to see the 2.0 version of Star Tours next January!!! That kind of change sure is welcome!

I loved Tangled (it would certainly make a pretty funny show!) and as BatB will have its castle and village on MK it won't surprise me to see it go.

As for the rest, the inclusion of more Star Wars would be great, specially the Cantina. Monsters Inc. Coaster would be awesome! I just wouldn't be much into Cars Land as that is by far my least favorite Pixar movie and I'd much prefer more things related to other Pixar movies and/or other Disney films.
We're getting Jack Sparrow, but maybe, in addition to Tangled we could get something of next year's Frozen or this year's Wreck-It Ralph (I'm dying to see this movie! ). Wreck-It Ralph maybe would be a better fit to an attraction at Epcot (maybe something in Innoventions), but would certainly be a cool attraction anywhere!

I'd love something from The Avengers, but with IoA I find that hard to believe!

Thanks for posting the link. Any upgrades to DHS will be welcome! The area were cars land would go is in desperate need of improvement.

I had previously been able to click it (using Safari) but it's not working for me now either. Maybe they are updating something....or some dis'ers were right with this being an april fools type joke.

I'm pretty skeptical about all of this; it seems like a huge amount of changes a little bit out of the blue...

I posted this on an earlier thread about the BAH:

"If I'm reading the info correctly, only buildings constructed AFTER December 1st 1990 have architectural copyrights.

Since Graumanns was built in 1926, no one would have a claim on it's look or design. So the assumption that Disney had to block the view would be false.

However, I'm not a copyright lawyer so if anyone here is an expert, please chime in.

Wow, I find myself feeling 100% the opposite. I thought the songs in Tangled were simply amazing and the story a true classic.

Also I'm sure cars land would be cool, but the main attraction in that land is basically already at Epcot in Test Track. No reason to have the same type of ride in two different parks with a different theme. Just doesn't make sense to me.
Using this logic, wouldn't it be true that there should only be one roller coaster, one omni-mover, one 3D movie theater in all of WDW? Repeating popular and beloved ride technology is no problem, since the story and theme are what make it great. =)
