Not sure if there really just hasn't been any rumors or not, but will this list be updated or is it up to date?
Hmmm... I'll get around to updating. Ever since the return of things after the COVID lockdown, we pretty much new what was and wasn't going to be done, unlike the heyday of five years ago when there were all sorts of hush hush projects that were getting greenlit.Not sure if there really just hasn't been any rumors or not, but will this list be updated or is it up to date?
Can't wait for stuff like what happened the year that they announced Main Street Theater and yanked the announcement of TRON Racers replacing Speedway the day before the event!There isn't a whole lot going on right now. I would anticipate some D23 leaks will start surfacing in the coming months though.
Thanks, Martin's report that an extension of the Skyliner isn't a dead issue is new to me.Some other tidbits:
AKL transportation project: [info]
Seeming implications of something similar to Poly's DVC stuff (new DVC studios then a tower) happening at GF in reverse order to Poly along with Yacht Club villas: [info]
Tron was very much the plan for Speedway...might be the plan again [this] and [this]
Zootopia might actually be coming to the Animal Kingdom.....but ToTBellhop has some conflicting info [this] and [this]
A proposal does exist to extend the Skyliner [info] and the "overbuilt dog leg" on the Epcot line is the jumping off point [here], with the expansion proposal heading west likely to Coronado and Animal Kingdom [here]
We have a general completion date, but not a closing date (for Splash). One rumor that's likely the most probable is late this year.Sure, but this thread is mostly tracking rumors, not announcement. The retheme was announced. And now we have a general time for completion announced. No rumors here.
Do you have a link to one of our regular insiders with a good track record saying when Splash will close?
OK, this one was pre-announcement but it's by a regular insider:Do you have a link to one of our regular insiders with a good track record saying when Splash will close?
I don't keep track of guesses and suppositions. This thread would be the size of Wikipedia.
While I do implicit trust that poster, there has been a lot of conflicting info from other insiders and even himself... WDW keeps changing the timeline.OK, this one was pre-announcement but it's by a regular insider:
Does anyone else think that centering a water attraction around an alligator is a bit insensitive and a curious choice, given the tragedy from a few years ago? Nah. Accidents happen. Just like how soarin plans weren’t changed due 9/11. We have got to stop being so sensitive.forums.wdwmagic.com
Thanks for the heads up... collating...@MisterPenguin I'm sure you've heard some of these (or some variations of these) but quite a few are likely new to you.
Four new DVC sites being examined, at least two in consideration [here]
The long rumored Contemporary Second Tower might be about to become a reality [here]
Fantasmic rumored to be coming just in time for the Christmas Party [here], specifically before Thanksgiving [here]
Aspirations for a new DAK nighttime show [here]
Possibly a new nighttime parade by the 60th? [here]
End of March 2023 is the "expiration date" for Enchantment. [here] HEA expected to then return shortly after. [here]
Launch Bay is the likely site of a walkway connecting to an expansion behind Sunset, possibly the same expansion Martin hinted at. [here]
Two major projects and several smaller ones out the door by 2025 [here]
If any major Encanto related attraction is coming it will be 2025-6 [here]
Multiple items from this D23 wishlist are indeed being announced across all the categories on said list. One for sure from the Dream category. [here] and [here]
Le Cellier expansion is happening, maybe [here]
Country Bears Vacation Hoedown was considered sometime in the last decade [here] along with several show refresh proposals [here]
Harmonious might be in jeopardy [here]
Skyliner expansion has been proposed, but not in the works yet [here]
A long term expansion may go east of Storybook Circus [here]
The same Avengers E-Ticket announced (and then killed) for DCA (or a different Avengers themed E) was the "more Marvel" proposal for WoL, and would have replaced the entire building (Universal killed it for obvious reasons) [here]
Main Street Theater, long thought dead, might not only be back on but even expanded in scale. [here] (however, it'd probably need a new location because the original location wasn't viable to build a giant theater on [here])
Fire Mountain might actually be back on the table [here]
WDW Pro posted this, so take it with a grain of salt, but a very very high-end hotel (aka, probably the Super Deluxe) might be destined to go north of Grand Floridian, and may have a private entrance into Adventureland. This is also being corroborated by JoeCamel in the Fire Mountain rumor above. [here]
