Hey there guys and gals it is I Anonymouse! I am back delivering to you the best in Disney Gossip! There is talk around many of the Disney message boards and websites that Disney is going to be removing some older and less attractive rides, this is where the awful Stitch’s Great Escape &  the mildly amusing Journey to Imagination come into play.

The board of directors at Disney has approved $3.5 billion for Walt Disney World improvements. In that chunk of change most of it is going to Hollywood Studios so Disney can finish out Star Wars Land & Toy Story land. They have also set aside some money for Epcot & the Magic Kingdom, sorry Animal Kingdom no money for you, why don’t you ask James Cameron? So of that money for Magic Kingdom the most least popular ride (did I say that right?) at Walt Disney World is Stitch’s Great Escape.

The chatter on the net is maybe some type of Wreck it Ralph 3D Racing Attraction based off Sugar Rush! Which I LOVE that idea.

Epcot

Next on the chopping block would be Journey to Imagination and the big gaping hole that was left by Captain Eo but is now filled by Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival. The rumor is that Figment is out and Inside Out will be coming in. Dreamfinder and Figment (which is who we really love anyway) from Journey to Imagination would start showing up in Tomorrowland in the Magic Kingdom and then some sort of Inside Out ride would basically consume the area.

I would like to mention that some of the money set aside for Hollywood Studios is also going towards the retheming of the Great Movie Ride, but if you follow me then you know I mentioned that last time so it is really just review for you. Good Job!

No word yet if any of this is official. Keep in mind I just hear things and while I might not be 100% spot on I do get many things right, so take everything I say with a grain of salt and as with all of my rumors as soon as something becomes official my boy Chip will post it.

That is all the Disney gossip I have for now. For my past gossip articles be sure to check them out here. Got any good gossip/rumors please email me at anonymouse@chipandco.com or on my Facebook page

  1. Man they just can’t get it together with Epcot. Inside Out was a great movie, but they need to focus on timelessness in their attractions rather than trying to capitalize on pop culture fads. Who runs these parks? It’s absurd. The majority of the overhauls and replacements they’ve done have just made things worse.

  2. You are correct. As I stated in my post, they ruined Journey into Imagination. Sure, don’t fix it. Get rid of it. Hey, what was the last Goofy or Donald movie your kid watched? Not as popular as Anna and Elsa. Should we phase them out too?

  3. I’m 20 and had NO idea who Figment was until I went to Epcot. Children now are going and do not have a clue who Figment is, which means they are not going to be impressed by going on a slow-moving, long, smelly ride that sings a (kind of) annoying song. I love Disney just as much as the next person, but I can guarantee that the future guests of Disney will not find Journey to Imagination as classic and wondering as would someone that already does.

  4. Why not update wonders of life and put inside out there? Bring back the original journey into imagination, and come up with a new 3d movie?

  5. Do they not remember the revolt from removing Figment and Dreamfinder the last time? Seriously? There is so much unused space more suitable for updates… An entire pavilion is sting there! And they can move the flower & garden and food & wine events to millennium village. Problem solved! An entire Pixar Pavilion with built in expansion possibilities.

    The Imagination Pavilion should be updated to enhance the beloved non-movie related character most of us have come to know and love. Enhance our imagination, build upon it, let it grow … Don’t tear it down.

  6. Seriously. Epcot is Figments park. First they destroy his ride, now they just axe it completely. Just really, do whatever. Drop in attendance despite low fuel prices should let you know just how you’re doing. Keep sending money to China. PS. The new Howard Johnsons lobby… Err I mean Polynesian lobby looks great.
