Rumor BatB Rumor from Screamscape

By the way, I forgot to mention something else to @GiveMeTheMusic:



I believe that Screamscape has proven correct in terms of rumored stuff coming to Disneyland more often than not, at least in recent years. I think they were the first to mention the Guardians of the Galaxy overlay of the Tower of Terror as well as the overhaul of the auction scene in Pirates. At least, that's where I first read about them.

So who's to say that they won't bring the Beauty and the Beast ride to Disneyland in a far smaller (and thus probably inferior, by our standards) version than Tokyo's, particularly since they would have to do it from scratch anyway? I mean, just look at Disneyland's Pooh ride. It's far inferior to Tokyo's Pooh ride, but it's still there, very, very different than that one. So again, who's to say they won't do it again?

I have a feeling they will probably mention something at D23, particularly since, by then, Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge be open. Yes, there is the Marvel land coming to the CA Adventure, but do you really think they won't do something for Disneyland, too?
From what it sounds like they re building in Tokyo it wouldn’t just be an inferior version it would be a completely different ride.

In addition to being an old man with no friends or family who is annoyed by children and people in general that tend to cluster in amusement parks, the closing of the Snow White ride at Disneyworld really turned me off to that place. There was absolutely no reason to get rid of it. They have miles of uninhabited swamp land to build things on. It didn't even take up that much room.

It would have been too confusing for guests to have two Snow White Attractions next to each other. Will the real Snow White please stand up?

Now let's say they do this huge expansion project for BATB and it really turns out to be the best ride ever. Then I might be fine with it. But if they keep it the same small space and make it a mediocre version of the Tokyo ride, then I will have a big problem with it.
Keep in mind, I'm not the biggest snow white or pinnochio ride fan, but both are simply too classic to replace, and if they are replaceable they need something equally as classic. Not a half - a$$ed rush job.

That's all I will say for now.

I’ve not heard, heard it’s not happening, and I’d doubt it with MMR in contention nearby.
This is for @marni1971 (and also @WDW1974):

If it isn't happening, how did Screamscape get wind of it? I don't think they would just say, "This is something that SHOULD happen." They said, "This is something that COULD be happening." Therefore, the rumor had to have come from somewhere; they wouldn't just randomly say it out of nowhere.

And yet, even though they have a superb Winnie the Pooh ride in Tokyo, we still followed up with a subpar Pooh ride in Disneyland (a few years after the fact, I might add). So just because they did it once, does not mean they won't do it again.

No idea. I’ve no idea where a lot of these stories come from. After all, I just make all mine up.

The rumor about Snow White and Pinochio going away is not a new. I just hope nothing happens to them. Hey, they should put more Fantasyland in Tomorrowland. Narrow down Tomorrowland to just the corridor and the submarine.

Why are you trying to defend a 'source' which is clearly wrong about a rumor since BatB could not possibly fit where they say it's going? They just don't know their stuff in order to properly vet a rumor. Screamscape obviously does not have a reliable source.

"I would absolutely stop going to DL if Snow White was closed." means "I will * about the ride during construction. I would be the first in line to try out the replacement ride. I will vlog about how the new ride is absolutely amazing."
Mr. Cheezy Pop, is that you?


I found this one video from DSNY Newscast, a good web video series on news and potential rumors for Disney parks. In one, they discussed possible new additions to Disneyland's Fantasyland, including a Beauty and the Beast ride like the one coming to Tokyo (as opposed to Frozen stuff):
You know that 90% of Jack's breaking rumors come from these forums, right?
