Rumor Updates (November 2019): Star Traders refurb, Primeval Whirl returns, and more
Star Traders receives updates, Primeval Whirl reopens officially, and Epcot prepares for their new films.
The landscape of rumors is forever shifting. In this monthly series, we’ll take a look at all the new updates to the articles pertaining to rumors. Now that’s it’s December, we should probably look at the November updates. Be thankful there’s nothing too bad here.
The Tomorrowland Updates
Mickey’s Star Traders is still being refurbished. The shop has received a new sign and new name, simply being just Star Traders now (might be time to change the Peoplemover audio now). The bustling space mural that included Stitch and several spaceships above guests’ heads has been removed, now appearing white. Meanwhile towards the front of Tomorrowland, the sci-fi side bars are being removed from the Peoplemover track. The bars have already been replaced by Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor with a more open design.
It’s the End of Dinoland as We Know It
Primeval Whirl reopened on November 23 to coincide with the usual Thanksgiving crowds. The ride will remain open until January 4, at which point it will return to seasonal downtime.
Experimental Projection Camera of Tomorrow
The Epcot guide maps now list Awesome Planet, Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along, and Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360 with the estimated openings for all three, that being January 2020. Impressions de France went down for a refurb in order to prepare for the upcoming show that will share the theater with it. Awesome Planet and Canada Far and Wide in Circle-Vision 360 now have signs up in the park with “Coming Soon” plastered over them.
