    From the blog of an attractions CM I follow on tumblr:

    Any speculation? The first thing that comes to mind is Avatarland and the rumored Soarin'-type ride - that would explain his "eyes/ears/nose" comment.

    My first thought with mention of your senses is that they are going to redo the Figment ride. Maybe restore it to the original.

    If this is legit, I agree it's gotta be Hollywood Studios. After hearing the report of imagineers going over space once backlot and lights, motor, action are gone... might be CarsLand.

    Funny that I follow this blog too. I actually messaged him asking for more information. Even though I'm a CM, I feel out of the loop! I'll see what he says! I have heard some pretty solid reports about a definite CarsLand at DHS though!

    I keep hoping for a big announcement about Downtown Disney....but I doubt it's that.

    Oh yes, of course - I meant to include it in my original post but forgot. The original blog post is here.

    Oh, that's funny! Out of curiosity, what's your role? Maybe he knows because it's something specific to attractions?

    If it has anything to do with the Studios' backlot I wouldn't be surprised. They've been clearing out sound stages and prepping land the past couple of years for something (was supposed to be Monsters Inc. ride but alas no announcement yet). Whatever it is though, I look forward to its announcement.

    I really am hoping for something Star Wars related. Ever since the Lucasfilm purchase I've been on the edge of my seat waiting for some more Star Wars at the parks.

    I can say that this big announcement is referencing something that is Magic Kingdom specific :)

    Someone on one of the disboards made a comment the other day that she saw two cast members walking around in DHS holding what looked like plans, and one said something about having enough room to build something. Perhaps you can find it by doing a search. I thought it sounded fishy and too vague at the time, but who knows.

    There are definitely some rather extensive plans happening at DHS, as well as some attraction closings.

    :thumbsup2 Star Wars trumps Carsland, WWoHP, Avatar and LoTR. :listen:

    Oh the joy they could bring with Star Wars--and I am not even that big a fan...but it is part of my childhood, teenage years, young adulthood and now I get to see my 10 year old nephew enjoy it. The legacy it represents is huge--espeically with those of us in our 40s.
