Rumor Round Up – August 13, 2015 Edition
Mickey staying put and Minnie moving
A few weeks back I reported that Mickey could be moving in front of Disney Jr at Hollywood Studios. Well, it now appears that Minnie Mouse could be the character moving to that new meet and greet area. Minnie currently meets in the Great Movie Ride/Center Stage area along with other classic Disney characters. If this is true, we won’t lose Sorcerer Mickey after all.
Daisy taking Duffy’s spot
It’s being rumored that Daisy could be the character returning to Epcot in early October. Duffy will be moving out and Daisy should use the same meet area.
Mad Hatter returning to Magic Kingdom
There’s a rumor circulating that the Mad Hatter could return to regular meet and greets at the Mad Tea Party this fall. This would be exciting for most guests because the Mad Hatter is one of the most fun meet and greets!
Toy Story Midway Mania Fastpass unavailable
Beginning October 15, 2015 guests are unable to book Fastpass+ for Toy Story Midway Mania. Could this be a sign that the attraction could be closing to undergo a refurbishment? We do know that the large sound stage beside TSMM is being used to expand the ever popular attraction, some rumors say that this could be possible closure to rearrange the current queue to accommodate this new area. As of 8/13/15 FP+ for TSMM is unavailable from October 15 through 27. TSMM FP+ is usually difficult to acquire within a week of a visit.
UPDATE 8/15/15 Fastpass+ has now been released and/or the glitch has been fixed
Closure of Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream appears imminent
Many of the historical props that are inside the attraction’s pre-show area are already being removed. Walt’s desk and office have already been removed and are being shipped to the Disney Family Museum.
Any news on flik possibly returning to AK? Saw that rumor floating around on the internet….
My son is going to be heartbroken to see that go – it’s his favorite attraction.
Yes. I’ll second that! Toulouse and Berlioz. And Remy from Ratatouille!
So if any of these rumors do come true then you will do a post saying that it’s actually happened?
And if Mad Hattet does come will all three Wonderland characters remain?
I post often and I add all current characters to http://www.characterlocator.com
What about Fantasmic? Disney calendar is grayed out for month of February. Any idea why?
Also not listed in March. Possible refurbishment or terrible oversight
It’s sad that One Man’s Dream is being removed. It all really started with him and then a mouse. But people now don’t seem to care about the Disney history and are in too much of a rush at the parks
I’m waiting for a new rumor about Toulouse and Berlioz (From The Aristocats) becoming meetable in WDW, Since both are found in Disneyland Paris and Tokyo Disney Resort.
They only meet at Halloween Soiree at DLP and won’t be coming here anytime soon for regular meets
I hope a better character takes over Duffy’s spot. Not that I don’t love Daisy but I would want to see a rare character that hasn’t made any appearances in a while.
Not going to happen
