So we’ve seen Rapunzel take over Tour Guide Gardens and Pinocchio has bit the dust . What could be coming to Walt Disney World soon?
(Confirmed) Merida – Merida will move into Rapunzel’s old spot after it is remodeled into a Scottish castle motif. They will feature her 3 bear brothers as puppets.
Rumored: Swampy the Alligator. It was rumored a couple months ago that Swampy from Disney’s hit mobile device game “Where’s my water?” would begin meet and greets in the Fall of 2012, but nothing more has been said. Likelihood: MAYBE

Rumored: Wreck-it Ralph. It has been rumored that characters from Wreck-it Ralph would begin meet and greets Fall of 2012. Disney is investing big bucks into this 3D Movie version developed from classic style video games of the past. The movie will include cameos characters from Pac Man, Super Mario Brothers, Mortal Combat, Sonic and QBert. Ralph is 9 feet tall and 643 pounds in the story. They’ll need to shrink him a bit or casting will become limited to former NBA centers like Shaquille O’neal. I would expect Ralph and Felix to take Pooh’s spot in Hollywood Studios, which sends Pooh back to the streets. Likelihood: Likely
Pete’s Silly Sideshow – this will not actually be a show, but just a glorified meet and greet. Donald is said to relocate from Frontierland to a nice air-conditioned tent as the Great Donaldo. I’m hoping that PETE actually appears. It has been rumored that Goofy and other VIPs would join Donald. This area of Storybook Circus is said to open in early 2013. Many of us would like to see Pete, the Big Bad Wolf, Lambert the Sheepish Lion or even Oswald appear here. We’ll most likely be dissapointed with it becoming more of a Epcot Character Spot type location with the same old characters but in circus apparel. I would expect it to offer Fastpass as FP is all the rage now. Likelihood: Likely
