RUMORS OF THE WEEK

Jessica C. (NDI#21) (81 Posts)

Living in Delaware her whole life, Jessica did not know much about Walt Disney World until she went at 13 years old. That initial trip, though, got her hooked on the magic. As the years went on, she did everything she could to learn more about Disney (including watching documentaries and reading books). She did not know many people that shared her passion until she discovered the wonders of the internet and the Disney community found on it. She has gotten involved with as many Disney projects as she can, including writing the weekly news articles for The Disney Driven Life and writing for her own blog, The True Disney Fan. Jessica has also taken on a position with Celebrations Magazine, working the social media aspects of the publication. Through all these platforms, Jessica strives to bring as much Disney magic as possible into her everyday life, and she works to share it with everyone she meets!

There have been several little rumors that have popped up this week, so instead of just covering one of them, I thought I would write about a few of them, just to help keep you great readers informed!

Bye-bye Jojo:  It has been said that soon, Jojo and Goliath of Playhouse Disney fame will not be seen in Hollywood Studios as a meet and greet or as a character for the Playhouse Disney character meal at Hollywood and Vine. The rumored replacement: Handy Manny.

Later parade time: The Animal Kingdom’s Mickey Jammin Jungle Parade time has been changed recently from 3:00 pm to 4:45pm.  This is believed to be an effort to make park guests stay in the park for the full day.  Many guests would leave right after the 3:00 parade.  This time change is reported to be only temporary as Disney wants to see if it actually works. Mixed feedback has been heard so far.

Dumbo is flying in: It is reported that Dumbo will start to have meet and greets! It correlates to the release of Dumbo on DVD and Blue Ray in February.  It has also been said that you can expect to see him around the new Fantasyland’s Dumbo area once it opens.

Pirates 4 changes: The confirmation has come out that there will be a Pirates of the Caribbean 4, which will be out in the spring of 2011.  Johnny Depp has signed on for this movie, which will follow him as Jack Sparrow searching for the Fountain of Youth.  Who has not signed on: Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightly.

    I love the idea of Dumbo for character meeting!! My kids love the movie. Disney is known for maintaining a great mixture of new and classic. This would be fantastic and hope that it’s true, especially by Christmas when we go again!! 🙂
