@MisterPenguin First: thank you so much for maintaining this tracker!!!
Now, a request: Would it be possible to have a post that lists the timeline rumor dates in chronological order, similar to how the refurb page on WDWMAGIC lists by year/month?

Yes, like that, but by month, and updated periodically.
Sorry, but the rumored items are vague as to what month they are 'due' with projected times such as "spring" or "latter half of the year" or "by 2021". Putting them in chronological order within a year is really not possible.

Since there aren't too many items in a year, it should be relatively easy to browse the list and get what's coming early in the year and what's coming later.

I may have missed it but did our insiders confirm OCT 1 for ROE'S replacement? Or are we guessing? ROE's 20th Anniversary is end of Sep 2019. Whether Epcot wants to hit that who knows.
