Rumor Updates (June 2019)
The landscape of rumors is forever shifting. In this monthly series, we’ll take a look at all the new updates pertaining to articles on the site. Surprisingly, the list isn’t very large!
The Tomorrowland Updates
The Tomorrowland Speedway has reopened from its refurb! The ride is slightly shortened with the outermost curve being just a tad more sharp. There is a metal fence all along this curve so guests can’t peek a look at TRON on the ground. However, progress could be seen from the start from the Peoplemover, and the progress is amazing! Lots of roller coaster track is already up.
World Showcase Expansions
D23 is just around the corner and Disney has already confirmed that there will be lots of Epcot talk. So of course, people are speculating on the addition of the Brazil pavilion for World Showcase. It is speculated to open between Germany and Italy and not feature any attractions. Most likely, it will house a Brazilian steakhouse.
The king has returned! Well, most wouldn’t call it a king, but Rafiki’s Planet Watch will reopen July 11. The area has been closed since late October, so it’s expected to be refurbished. The area will also house the Animation Experience, where guests can learn to draw The Lion King characters. FastPass+ will be available for the Animation Experience. The Play Pavilion is rumored to host an animation experience, but it is unknown if the Animation Experience will affect that plan. Nobody’s brought it up, I’m just connecting dots.
Halloween Ever After
Slightly mentioned in this article was the replacement for Holiday Wishes with a projection show, and it’s confirmed! They even gave this one a name! Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks show will utilize projections on Cinderella Castle for a show exclusive to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
