He asked me about it. I said unless the budget was substantially increased I said I doubt it. He still published it as a rumour.

But whos rumour?
In the video, I state that the rumoured ride system is a "spinner" /basic flat ride as per yourself and many other insiders. And that it will be indoors / fully enclosed, with perhaps 360 projections.

I don't address the ride system patent "Omnitable" until over halfway through the video, and when I do, I made it very clear that this is not the patent for the attraction, but instead I'm using it to demonstrate how a basic spinner can be elaborate if well-themed.

But once again, thanks for the insight :)

No worries, I knew that you were basing it off the headline, that's why I wanted to explain and add extra context to save you watching it and assessing for yourself. Here's the part of the script where I state it:

"Now I am not saying that this is the exact ride system that will be used within the Mary Poppins attraction, but instead I'm just using the patent as a demonstration of how a basic spinner can actually be quite complex and creating a compelling experience. "

^^ But would it be worthy of the Mary Poppins IP as well?
Good question! Depends of course on the final design and the budget cuts that seem to plague every Disney project...Of course I would rather see a more ambitious approach, this could be fun if done right./..If the ride vehicles have the range of motion shown in the patent...At least it would not be just another spinner.

Disney will have opened 2 new rides a year, every year, between 2017 and 2021, but so far we don't know anything beyond that.

Is the goal to have this open in 2022?

My guess is 2021 since Disney said at D23 that everything they talked about would be open for the 50th.

Of course that could change at any time but until we have more info that’s what I’ve been going with.

Everything announced is presumably for the 50th (2021). The only thing I think I know of that will be for '22 is the SSE refurb and completion of World Celebration for EPOT's 40th.

All the other projects "for the 50th" are due in 2021 according to our insiders. While not impossible, I doubt this will linger to 2022, especially if it's just an attraction and not a ride.
Based on the fact that we're feeling reasonably confident in that it's a simple ride and not a dark ride, I also would say it's improbable that it would take until 2022.
But on that note, I know there's a designated thread but isn't Spaceship Earth's refurb supposed to last until 2022? (@MisterPenguin )

Do we think there's any chance this could be a Main Street Theatre situation and they cancel it? There has been no news since the initial announcement and nothing has been started at the UK Pavilion. What could the hold up be?

Might be waiting for the new quarter. Also they may not want to start a new project with so many other projects happening. I doubt it is cancelled.

It is kind of surprising no construction has started yet. If it really is going to be done by the 50th it would have to be fairly small scale as others have hinted at for sure
