Weekly Disney Rumor Update 6/14/19

Another slow week, (3 in a row now) there was relatively no new information given out from the Disney Parks. But here is what little we did learn.

Walt Disney World



It appears Disney is going to be revealing a ton of Epcot information at D23. It is mentioned in pretty much every bit of advertising for the D23 Expo, so we can really expect almost the entire parks panel to be about this single project.


Journey Into Imagination With Figment will definitely not survive this project if rumors are to be believed and it is debatable if Figment himself with survive this. Rumors indicate the only thing possible keeping him alive is the director of Inside Out, now head of Pixar, Pete Docter has a personal affinity for Figment due to working on another Epcot attraction, Cranium Command. He, again if reports are to be believed, wants Figment to have a continuing presence in the park, and his high position in the company is contributing to the possible continued existence of Figment (Note that now two of his films feature Figment cameos, Inside Out and Toy Story 4).

Disney's Hollywood Studios

Future of the Voyage of The Little Mermaid

Rumors of replacements for pretty much every live show in this park have been common for the past five years but this one appears the most likely at the moment. It seems likely that this will be for the rumored black box dark ride if it is replaced. Now this is by no means the first rumor for one of the stage shows at Disney's Hollywood Studios 

Rock N Roller Coaster Replacement

These rumors are accelerating at a fast pace, yet no concrete IP has been singled out for the replacement. It really just appears that as rumored, the rights to use Aerosmith are approaching their end date and Disney is still trying to figure out what to do with this attraction.
