"Countdown To Fun"/"Disney Channel Rocks" Closings-Coincidental?

With the closings of CTF and DCR BOTH on the same day,do you think that is just "coincidence" or could Disney be "clearing" out the "Hat area" for some purpose?

Does anyone have any "inside info"?Thanks.

Using a certain word brings out a special kind of cray-cray

They're creating landing pads for the black helicopters.

They're adding a giant Mickey Shoe to go along with the hat.

Causing thousands of guests to then be milling around that area...
waiting for the OTHER shoe to drop.

They better not be getting rid of that hat. I may be the only one in the world that likes it!

More likely, a new parade is on the way quite soon. Remember, we didn't get much advance notice on the Pixar Countdown to Whatever Parade.

Probably not. In February, entertainment CMs were still being trained and approved for Countdown to Fun...sadly, some of them will never be able to perform in CTF.
So, that leaves the black helicopter and Mickey shoes as the only possibilities!

Ugh. Hope they replace it with something similar, DD8 will be disappointed.

Heck, bring back Aladdin without the parade.

(For that matter, just bring back Jasmine!!)

Aw, and my first thought when I read the OP was that maybe they were finally moving the BAH to a less obstructive, scenery destroying spot....One of us is going to be disappointed. Probably me.

I will be milling about, hoping the black helicopters pick me up before the shoe drops.

Do we know for sure it's cancelled or is it just on hiatus or has the calendar perhaps not been updated yet?
