Hello, everyone. Anonymouse here with a few snippets of Disney gossip to brighten up your bleary January morning.
Word is that Disney is shooting a new commercial for its newest cruise ship, the Dream, on January 19th at Port Canaveral. They’ve contacted local pirate crewes and asked them to dress in their best pirate attire. Does this mean it’s a commercial full of pirates or is does someone just have a sick sense of humor. I’m going with the former until proven otherwise.
The biggest news at Disney World right now concerns the Fantasyland expansion, the first phase of which is set to open in 2012. We know now that the absolute last day to visit Mickey’s Toon Town Fair is February 11th. If you’re around on the 12th, watch out: We’ve heard Mickey is going to ask for help moving. Free pizza and beer for volunteers!
Photos are surfacing showing the framework going up for the castle portion of the Little Mermaid Ride in the Magic Kingdom. We’re hoping that this attraction will be open in time for the 40th anniversary celebration in October and that the projected 2012 opening is just playing it safe.
What’s Project X? Well, rumor has it that it’s a Snow White mine ride right smack dab in the middle of the Fantasyland expansion. It will replace the planned meet and greets for Cinderella and Aurora. Smart idea. While we love the meet and greets (okay, I don’t), we’re certainly not going to turn down another ride.
There are rumors swirling around that there will be a Tron 3. I’d write more about this but the rumor, not unlike the movie, nearly bored me to death and I need to do some repenting before I die so I’ll just stop talking about it.
What? I have strong opinions. Have a lovely day, everyone.
