The Enchanted Tiki room Stitch Presents Aloha e Komo Mai:

It's the new Tiki Room in TDL. Sorry it's in japanese.

As redskins-fan said DHS means Disney's Hollywood Studios formally MGM Studios. Check out this guide for more: http://elfislandforums.com/guides-tips-and-tutorials-f10/guide-easy-talk-t154.htm

I just returned from WDW and I can say that while on the DHS Back Lot Tour, while viewing the prop and costume areas ... The Tour Guide did point out the work on the new props that were being built for the new Pixie Land/Meet n Greet in a new section of Fantasyland. They were huge tree like props that were being built and painted.

T-Rex restaurant is opening this fall in DownTown Disney. While in DownTown Disney, they do already have the barricades up (where they are building T-Rex) with various large banners and posters promoting T-Rex already.

The new Tiki Tiki Tiki Room with Stitch is just Stitch's Great Escape ruining the Original Tiki Room.

Hi,

I found some other WDW rumors in an article on a Disney fan site.

Here are some of the confirmed ones:

T-Rex themed Restaurant at Downtown Disney. - Oops, didn't realize you already had this.

(Smaller projects)

Grad Nites moving to DHS.

Wide World of Sports re-branded to ESPN.

Here are some rumors (if you like):

Ratatouille-themed clone of Crush's Coaster (at DLP "Studios" park) coming to DHS. Crush's Coaster = http://us.parks.disneylandparis.com/walt-disney-studios-park/lots/toon-studio/attractions/crush-coaster.xhtml

E-Ticket ride coming to DHS by 2010. Said to be either revamp of Star Tours, like slinkyman stated, or a brand new attraction.

I have the article address if you care to see it slinkyman, but I assume you've already read it and this is how you found everything.

More roller coasters and Dark Rides at the WDW would be really nice, we need more of those. Especially with all the new high-tech equipment coming out, dark rides could be really cool.

thanks for all these updates/rumors slinkyman.

most of the rumors i would like to see (omg PLZ let them bring back Dreamfinder!!)
i don't know if i would like to see a new night parade, i LOVE Spectromagic! but if they do it right i'm sure i could get over it lol

i can't even think about them re-doing the Tiki Room, it was bad enough when they ruined it by adding Zazu and Iago, now don't get me wrong, i like stitch but i just can't see it working, i watched those youtube videos and i didn't hear even one line of the tiki theme song!! yes i know it was in japanese but i would think that it would still have the beat to the song. if they are going to re-do the attraction, bring it back to the original! just my 2 cents Very Happy

Well sad to say when I watched Illuminations Reflections of the Earth on the 23rd of August this month their wasn't even a Big Earth prop! It was completely gone and they just used fireworks to replace it ppl were really mad since we were standing out in the rain waiting to watch the show, and the Earth makes the show.

I saw illuminations on Aug 24th and it was not as bad as I was expecting. It was pouring rain from Faye. They added more fireworks and lasers and I still enjoyed the show.
