Blah, that had better not be true. The boat ride sounds like the best feature of the new land.
A nice cool relaxing dark ride through a bioluminescence environment sounds simply wonderful...

Interesting, thanks

I hope James Cameron is as involved as JK was for WWoHP because it would be great to see a product that is exactly as he envisioned and as detail-oriented as possible.

2. Star Wars in WDW, construction was supposed to start january 2014, Bob Iger stepped in and said lets wait we are rewriting the script for episode 7, construction will now start in january 2015. Indiana Jones will stay until 2017 because they have private events booked there until then, and they now own the right to jones. a x-wing spinner ride will happen. this is all taking place in echo lake. sounds dangerous building now becomes jedi training building with a new Yoda AA. Speeder Bike Attraction also likely.

3. Star wars in DLR, construction to start in maybe 2016 after the 60th anniversary, subs go away, autopia goes away, star wars goes in

4. DCA gets an autopia like attraction in cars land

5. Disney regrets Avatar, if they would've known George Lucas was selling they would have never made a deal with James cameron.
2. I can see that happening. Not so sure about Indiana Jones. The fact that they never took Indiana Jones Adventure to WDW given its popularity at DL is suspiscious. Plus, the attempts to revitalize the series in recent years weren't exactly successful. Who knows though. I'd love an Indy attraction at WDW.

3. That would make quite a lot of sense. Autopia is dated and occupies lots of space. I'm sure they don't want to get rid of some of the popular rides at Tomorrowland, so the obvious answer would be to extend the land and occupy Autopia's area.

4. Also makes sense. Use new technology and a Cars overlay, and make a new version of Autopia. Autopia fans would have a replacement, and DCA would have a brand new ride. Everyone wins. The only problem I see is the space. They still have some parking space, and if the rumors are true, Luigi's Flying Tires is at risk (apparently the flying saucers will never find their way at DL ) so who knows? They might have other plans for that space.

5. I don't think this is true. Yeah, perhaps they found that it was more challenging that they thought, but they still needed a big story to respond to HP, and there aren't many obvious choices (Star Wars wasn't made for AK... Lord of the Rings? Not quite). Disney is known for cancelling plans they already announced. If they truly regret Avatar, they could've stopped it on time.

2. Disneyland needs it's own unique things can't copy everything.
3. There was also supposed to be another restaurant in that area for the future but those plans were tossed.
5. I agree but James Cameron isn't the easiest to work with so I don't see them backing out now.

A man lost his finger on The Pirates of the Caribbean ride at WDW recently. He stuck his hand in the water prior to the drop and gone went finger. Folks please keep your hands inside the boats they tell you that for a reason.

Also some more of the new look to disney springs opened over by Fultons Crab House. Here is a link to photos. It is called the Lily pad area.

Ugh, reminds me of our Physics class trip to Six Flags. On the stupid dinky rapids in a round boat ride the girl in the boat ahead of us lost her watch and undid her seat belt and reached over the side to try to get it. She was crushed into the wall.
No more High School trips to Six Flags...

Tokyo Disneyland has renewed the Dreamlights parade for 2015. The parade will have seven of the same floats with the rest being replaced with new ones. The lights are being changed to LED as well. On a side note I wish we could start taking the floats they discard and bring them for the Main Street Electrical Parade....Disney could save money and put on a good show. =)

I am very interested to see what the new Hong Kong and Disneyland night time parades look like. A WDW refresh would be nice.

Agree. Give DL a brand new parade for the 60th and bring some of Tokyo's spare floats to WDW. They could save some money and we would have something new to see.

Do they ever do that? Exchange certain items with the foreign parks, I mean.

I think the foreign parks have some of the best disney parades, especially Tokyo the Oriental company must have a large budget for parades because they always have great ones.

I wanted put this out there that the Club 33 renovations are almost complete and a lot of fans are not very happy about. Some also complain that non members shouldn't have an opinion because they are not members and will not experience this.

This is an article in the LATimes talking about the renovations. http://www.latimes.com/travel/themep...625-story.html

This is one of the new stained glass gates.

They have also installed new very large windows in the club, the club used to be more hidden and secret it seems disney is wanting to make it known.

And if you didn't already know Club 33 is getting a new logo

Not a member (and likely never will be), but those stained glass doors/gates just don't fit that archway! And they're not even that nice looking!

Due to a lightning strike on the monorail system a monorail was evacuated while on the track near wilderness lodge. The reedy creek fire department was there to assist in evacuation efforts no injuries or problems occurred during the evacuation.

More info on the monorail evacuation.
http://www.wdwmagic.com/transportati...er-failure.htm

Some more traffic changes on Buena Vista drive
"Beuna Vista Drive will have a reduced speed limit of 35mph and will be operating a reduced number of lanes in various sections. The restrictions will be taking place from Bonnet Creek Parkway to Hotel Plaza Boulevard.

Also expect changes to the entry and exit to Downtown Disney parking. It is expected that only entrances 2 and 5 will be available, which are the turns located opposite Typhoon Lagoon and the Hess Station.

Parking Lot L, which is located behind La Nouba, on the side nearest Disney Quest, will also be partially closed temporarily during July 2014."
