    Could you update the One Man's Dream rumor? The Galaxy's Edge and TSL models are going on display there and it will be renamed to "Walt Disney Presents"...

    That's not a rumor. It's been posted as a Disney Blogs news item.

    Timeline in second post has been update with moving Illuminations and Ratatouille to a later opening time.


    Epcot

    the Ratatouille Ride as it exists in Paris has beat out the Beauty and the Beast ride as the new attraction for the French Pavilion. This is Greenlit.

    Illuminations: a major update, or complete replacement of Illuminations [strong] early summer 2019, in 2020 [here], possibly or even probably including drones {updated}


    DHS

    Micky & Minnie Ride

    MK
    • Theater
      • not sure if theater bypass will be regularly accessible or just for the theater [here]
      • may be that access will be (only?) through Center Street [here] {added}

    I think what he means, unless I'm mistaken, is that you haven't added it as a timeline item.

    "One Man's Dream" to be renamed "Walt Disney Presents" and include models of Toy Story Land and part of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, along with art for Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway, in mid-September.

    Something like that.

    I made a mistake in taking what @Magic Feather said in a OMD thread as applying to OMD when it was actually in reference to a Dinorama tangent. I updated Dinorama, but forgot to remove the OMD reference, which I'm going to do right now.

    As far as OMD goes, there are constant rumbles that it will go, but no insider has yet said anything to the effect that "Because of X Plan, OMD's building now will be finally removed because of X Plan... if X Plan actually takes place."

    As far as OMD becoming Walt Disney Presents... there are no rumors. And the timeline is that it's happening right now. There is no need to track a non-rumor's timeline, otherwise, the timeline would become way too long. I'll be soon removing other 2017 events that have already taken place and why update the timeline with something I'll be removing shortly as done?

    Thank you so much for taking the time and effort to compile and then update this @MisterPenguin.

    I haven't been on the forum for months and so I spent hours combing through Spirit and Martin's posts searching for an update on the ToT/GOGT rumours that were circulating when I was last active on the forum and the excellent news I was looking for was here in this thread all along.

    Sounds like the new Illuminations will likely join the 50th entertainment lineup? Can't say that surprises me. Can we just fast forward to 2020, 2021? Lol

    I want to apologize because I know this is a lot of work but is there any update on this bored. I am trying to look at every forum discussion but I been very busy. My house had over 2 feet of water from Harvey, and I love my Disney but sadly I don't have the time to be on the forum like I used to. S

    Sometimes I have some posts squirreled away ready to be integrated in the big list in the first post, but, I have none. Just about any nuggets dropped recently are just repeats of what's already been posted. So, you haven't missed much. The last few posts of mine are the most recent updates.

    Sorry to hear about your flooding. Hope you and your family are OK.
