I don't think anyone mentioned it because until this rumor is no longer a rumor, why bother even thinking about any of it.

Of course without any true official statement on this, it's all conjecture anyway.

On that note, my best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.
Thank you, Simone.

Not to mention that once they add Anna and Elsa, it will be a mad dash for most and the lines will become unreasonably long. World Showcase is our break from the craziness of the other parks...it is our leisurely strolling day. I would prefer less characters and more authentic culture. I love going from country to country...eating, drinking and soaking up the atmosphere.
yep. (and i'm still a little miffed about the princesses taking over norway's restaurant...)

I would be totally behind the change if it's based on the Honest Trailer for Frozen. Which I won't link to because it's kinda naughty.

On my trip last October, Food & Wine, a group of slightly inebriated young ladies in front of me in line were quite taken by that strapping bearded fellow on that mural. They were making me laugh histerically, and they never even noticed. I know they're gonna miss that guy if he goes away!

So, what you're saying is that Maelstrom is a "bit of a fixer upper?" Sorry, it was just too easy!

LMAO. Oh lord. That would make an amazing attraction!

Have you seen the "How it Should Have Ended" for Frozen? Hilarious!

hahahaha, my sister LOOOOVES Norway Bearded Chuck Norris. It will sadden me greatly to not have that bizarre thing around to mock anymore.

I think it would be better if they left Maelstrom alone and opened a "Frozen" custard stand in Norway instead. I could get behind that idea!


Making "Tangled" a bathroom area only, that's the one that irks me

People have reported that they are unable to schedule fast passes in october, which is leading many to hypothesize the closing of the ride for a change or refurb. You can take what the OP has to say with a grain of salt because everyone has a friend of a friend or a relative has a friend who knows someone high up in the Disney hierarchy who confirms rumors. I honestly wouldn't believe anything till it comes straight from a Disney Press Release.
