I am now hearing from a few reliable sources on some hugeÂ rumors. There have been rumblings this week that Disney will be holding a hugeÂ press conference at the Walt Disney World Resort in the first week of January 2008. As far as the purpose of the event, it is mostly to get people excited about the newly re-christened Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This press eventÂ will be used for Disney to promote the High Shool Musical 2: School’s Out show, the new show coming to the ABC Theater, the Block Party Bash Parade, Toy Story Mania, the extended Year of a Million Dreams, and the new Siemen’s Spaceship Earth. But the biggest part of this conference will probably be the announcement of three new attractions. It is expected that at this time, Disney will announce a new Star Tours attraction, another Pixar themed E-ticket attraction, and a new attraction for Epcot’s Imagination Pavillion. While this is still all rumored, I did pick this up from multiple sources over the last two weeks. We will continue to provide you with any developements on this as they become available.
