Weekly Disney Rumor Update 6/28/19

Walt Disney World

Magic Kingdom

Animatronic Massacure

Initially, rumors suggested that the Country Bear Jamboree could be replaced, but now these rumors have expanded to also include a possible eviction of the Tiki Birds (Which Disney later affirmatively denied) and a third thus far unknown attraction, possibly Swiss Family Treehouse. No suggestion has been given to their replacement although we do have a tentative timeline. If these close, and so far that is still up in the air, it will be in mid-fall 2019. This seems like a terrible way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the park, by possibly removing 2, possibly 3, opening day attractions, but what do I know.



Senior members of Disney's leadership wandered Epcot this week, likely going over new Epcot related projects. Get ready for Epcot to be the majority of the parks presentation at D23.

Dried Up Mermaid

Disney announced Voyage of the Little Mermaid is going to be closed select days this summer. This could mean one of two things. Either Disney is doing several small refurbishments of this attraction, or it is the first step in the closing of this attraction. Rumors have been circulating of this attractions closure for years, so this could be an indication that it won't be around for much longer, similar to when an attraction goes seasonal.
