Hiya! Guys and Gals it is your favorite neighborhood gossip columnist, drum roll please, It is ‘I’ Anonymouse! Now that we got the introduction out of the way, let’s get down to business.
There have been some serious rumors floating around lately. It seems as though Disney CEO Bob Iger has pulled all expansion plans in Anaheim and outright pulled the plug on the majority of Star Wars Land expansion here in Orlando.
This has all been going down in quiet due to the addition of MyMagic+ to Disney World. It seems as though MyMagic+ has cost the Disney corporation way more then they intended to spend. Rumor is they are at well over 1 billion dollars now.
I was told some of the top suits in the company were in Orlando earlier this month for an emergency meeting. When they got back to Cali they started slashing projects. If their financial situation doesn’t improve then some Imagineers may lose their job.
For Disneyland that would mean that Tomorrowland’s Star Wars overlay is being put on hold for at least another year, California Adventure’s Monstropolis expansion is being cancelled, and 2015’s 60th anniversary plans have been changed.
For Disney World that would mean that Star Wars Land at Hollywood Studios would suffer a big reduction in the number of attractions with maybe just a few new rides and restaurant or two after the freeze is over. Avatarland would also be put on hold. We know the transformation of Downtown Disney into Disney Springs has already started and the New Fantasyland at the Magic Kingdom is almost done, so I doubt these project would be stopped midstream.
Just a friendly reminder that none of this has officially been announced yet so at this point it is all rumors until Disney gives us the final word. So don’t kill the messenger, after all if you did that then where would you get your juicy Disney gossip?
