OK peeps! I’ve been keeping my eye on these rumors that are flying around.
A couple of boards reported today that [B][I]“construction starting backstage behind the it’s a small world attraction at WDW.”[/I][/B]:ph34r:
And this [B][I]“New construction may add truth to ‘leaked’ Fantasyland refurbishment plans”[/I][/B]
[B]Here’s the new information…[/B]
[I]Some cast members who have backstage access to Fantasyland and Toontown are now reporting that some construction has begun in these areas - and the assumption is that it is part of the major overhaul. We’ve also been told that areas normally open for use by cast members are being blocked off and even some buses are being rerouted. Moreover, there are sources who claim to have spoken to Imagineers who said that these plans are indeed final and in-progress.
This wouldn’t be the first time Disney has given one of their Fantasylands an overhaul. However, the last major Fantasyland upgrade was not at Walt Disney World but rather in California at Disneyland, back in the early 1980s, when its carnival-type atmosphere was replaced with the look of a more detailed European-style village.
Since Disney has not officially announced any plans to renovate Fantasyland in Orlando yet, we’re still skeptical of the plans - but keeping our eyes and ears open. It seems to become more truthful by the day.[/I]
AND Disney Stock went up a little today!?!?!?
EXCITING IF IT’S HAPPENING!! -IMHO!! :wub:
