PostSubject: Rumors - Walt Disney World Entertainment Updates Coming 2012?   Fri Jul 15, 2011 9:03 am

ThemeParkOne, a Twitter user and apparent Disney insider that periodically holds "Question and Answer" sessions regarding the future of Disney Theme Parks. Tonight's questions focused mainly on the future of Walt Disney World Entertainment after his comments that Steve Davison is working in Walt Disney World as discussed in our Fantasmic! Refurbishment? Thread.

The following is a recap of these discussions. A couple details are taken from the same person's posts on the WDWMagic forums.:

Updates to entertainment in Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney's Hollywood Studios are being worked on. From these discussions we have been told that the MK and DHS entertianment updates have indeed been greenlighted and the projects will proceeed. The Epcot project seems as though it will happen one way or another, though WDW Mangement and WDI are debating wether to upgrade the show or to replace it.

First, we will discuss the Magic Kingdom update. A new parade would replace the current Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade. The new parade would be called Festival of Fantasy. It would feature new, large and unexpected floats. Music is still being worked on. The parade would debut in May or Early Summer of 2012.

Next, rumors of highly awaited upgrades to Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios, an aging show that pales in comaparison to its Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySEA cousins. The new show with a slightly different name would combine new show scenes with aspects of the shows in Disneyland and Tokyo. There would be no Pixar characters and the show would still focus on Mickey, but with a twist. This would debut in April/May, which could be why the show disappears from the schedule January 4, 2012.

Finally, the Epcot update, which would focus on Illuminations. WDI wants a new show while WDW Management wants some updates. They are debating this and should they reach an agreement,we may see the results of it in late 2012 or early 2013.

We would like to remind everyone that these are rumors that can change or never materialize. However these rumors fit in to the needs of the Resort and come from what may be a credible source.

The D23 Expo is in about a month, and it is possible that these new entertainment options may be reavealed then among other announcemnts for Walt Disney World according to ThemeParkOne. Stay with DK for updates on these rumors and the potentially exciting D23 Expo and the future of Walt Disney World.

Fantasmic Closed for Refurbishment From January 5 – February 12

As of right now, Fantasmic at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is scheduled to be closed for refurbishment between January 5th and February 12th. The first show after January 4th is scheduled on Monday February 13th. While rumors have been circulating that Fantasmic will undergo a much longer refurbishment that would ultimately change the show’s name and substance, it looks like the initial report here back on June 21st was correct. We can expect extensive refurbishment work done to the stage area, but no substantive changes are expected. As with anything this far off, plans may change. Disney is under extreme pressure on multiple fronts at the moment with the launch of a new cruise ship in the spring, the multi-year Fantasyland Expansion at Magic Kingdom, and the billion dollar addition to Disney’s California Adventure, not to mention several major international expansions and new construction in Shanghai. It doesn’t make a lot of sense for a company that skipped out on a major summer promotion this year to suddenly take on another complex project this winter.
