Yoo Hoo, Disney EchoEars!

In the September 29th issue of the Orlando Sentinel, Disney's senior vice president for Guest Relations, Joni Newkirk, had some interesting hints about upcoming changes to WDW. She also had something to say about Disney message forums and chat areas:

"We're the beneficiary of a lot of unofficial chat rooms," Joni Newkirk, senior vice president for guest relations, said at a news-media briefing Tuesday. Sometimes, the gossip is accurate, she said, but "other times, it couldn't be farther from the truth."

In the article, you'll read about the changes being made to the animation tour at the Disney-MGM Studios and the dropping of the Back to Neverland film.

Quick quote:

When the tour reopens, it will begin with a presentation by a live actor who will interact with Mushu, the dragon from Disney's 1998 animated feature Mulan.

After a self-guided tour of Disney's Orlando animation studio, visitors can leave or take a free class in how to draw a Disney character.

A Walt Disney Imagineering executive said there's talk -- and, so far, nothing but talk -- of possible changes to the Great Movie Ride.

"It's a big undertaking," Eric Jacobson said, but "somewhere down the road, we'll definitely update that attraction."

Jacobson, Imagineering's senior vice president of creative development, said there's also a chance that Disney will eventually update Pirates of the Caribbean at the Magic Kingdom. The ride inspired one of the summer's biggest movies.

"There are a lot of things we could do to that show to make it better without changing it," he said.

Full details.

:tear: They cant change Pirates of the Carribean. I love it just the way it is. It's historic, lol. Same goes for the Great Movie Ride. It would be a shame to change that.  :(
