Just checking in from my non-stop tracking of all the incredible news breaking loose at the D23 Expo. Apparently we are getting an entirely new section of Fantasyland! And there will be a Seven Dwarfs Mine Car Coaster! And maybe some meet-n-greets or something!
Okay, I actually feel a little sad, because there are still hopeful Disney fans out there that really do think the Walt Disney Company might be capable of keeping the next major World Showcase pavilion a complete secret until the big reveal. It happens every year, with every media event, convention, or theme park anniversary. Without fail, the fan community gets themselves riled up into thinking that this is the year Disney really did manage to sneak Villain Mountain past all the rumor sites.
So to sum up, no big announcements at D23. But I was reading the blog of one of our readers here and found this:
Yes! The Hidden Jafar is alive and well, and apparently mentioned in an official Disney tour! Ah, vindication is sweet. It also means that Teevtee has to do all the parkeology laundry for a month, including the smocks from the model painting room (those stains are tough to get out).
Remember, you heard it here first!
(actually, now that I google for it, I can see this Hidden Jafar is not nearly as secret as I thought)
