Are we sure the name change is happening? From what it sounded like above its not being renamed but possibly up to 3 new attractions including removal of speedway, stitch, and maybe buzz. I hope it stays tomorrowland though
marni I believe said the name change is "proposed" not concrete.

correction, was referring to something else sorry now that I went back and reread posts.

This twitter account has said it was going to be Discoveryland back in October, after saying it was going to be Future World.

And back in October they also said the RnRC was getting a GotG overlay soonl

And that Stitch was scheduled to be replaced. But, they said Stitch was already completely dismantled even when Disney was saying it would be available seasonally.

And in January that the Speedway was good as gone. And that Carousel of Progress was going down for a few months in February (which it didn't).

They did get a lighting package in Tomorrowland right... but you only had to look up to know that.

To their credit, they did mention Tron going to Buzz, which our own insider extraordinaire hinted as a possibility.

So... not a very good track record. They know what a bunch of CMs working in Tomorrowland know.



I just figured he deserved a little more credit than being automatically written off as the usual "fake insider" troll we tend to see out of Twitter. If only because he has been accurate about CoP and some other general Tomorrowland info. He could indeed be limited to a small area of information and not have real info from higher up, but in this case i'd prefer to wait and see what unfolds before making any assumptions.

For the record, he seems to think Rock 'n Roller Coaster is on the table for GotG (not necessarily Tower of Terror?) Or perhaps I misread, here's the tweet-

He also made a comment a couple days ago saying that Stitch was already dismantled and gone (it's supposedly only seasonal and I haven't seen any other posts about it for a few weeks).

Someone on Reddit says it's an account that several CMs have access to and so you'll see it talk to itself. And the conversation in this tweet shows their own confusion over whether something is happening or when it will happen... just like most of us.
@carouselof on Twitter is stating that Carousel of Progress will be down for a 3-5 month refurbishment starting in February. Any credibility to this?
Possibly. I'm expecting interior updating early this year but was unsure if it was third shift.
CarouselOf on Twitter is saying they're are also testing out the new Carousel of Progress lighting package along with Space Mountain.
In the past few days @CarouselOf has stated that:
1) Guardians of the Galaxy has been shelved as a replacement of Energy in Epcot, and they are looking to put it in DHS (Not Tower of Terror).
2) Tomorrowland will be renamed to something along the lines of "Future World/Land"?
3) Tron will replace Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin
4) Sugar Rush/Wreck It Ralph will replace Stitch's Great Escape

Is the tron going in buzz an actual proposed concept? I can't seem to find any confirmation reading through the last couple pages

I don't know. CoP Love says it is, Martin says it's possible but not likely. I am inclined to believe Martin but COPlove has a good track record. (BTW, Martin, Thanks for mentioning me in the credits for your tribute to the first WDW Attraction I ever experienced, It means a lot to me.)

Actually, I was thinking recently that they should probably re-name Frontierland into Westernland as in Tokyo considering that it was only a "Frontier" from a European perspective but I really don't care that much.

I'm sure we will notice the MAGICal price increase for the 50'th and the $50 cupcakes to commemorate the event...
No doubt there will be price increases between now and then. Reaching back to August here? :D Cat is out of the bag on a lot of the 50th planning. Just skimmed back. I have no knowledge of a name change for TLand. Still some items under wraps, but I don't think that's accurate.

Those $50 cupcakes better be gigantic. ;)

Carousel of progress is also reporting that some stuff will be announced at d23 on tomorrowland. I still have my doubts about that but maybe they could do just some sort of hint that the next big project is tomorrowland. The account also says the COP refurb will be announced late this year.
