We are hearing rumors that Disney Junior - Live on Stage could recieve it's next update in January 2013.

Reportedly, Disney Junior will close in January and replace the Little Einsteins and Handy Manny segments with Doc McStuffins and Sophia the First.

This rumor isn't that far-fetched considering the show has been updated a number of times in the past to reflect what television shows are still actively being shown on the air.  The last update occurred in March 2011.

I read a rumor over the weekend that I thought I'd pass along to others who are looking forward to meeting some characters on their next trip to Disney's Hollywood Studios.  

The rumor, provided by David Harrison, claims a Cast Member told him that the Little Einsteins character meet outside of Disney Junior - Live On Stage will be replaced with a chararacter meet-n-greet from Jake and the Neverland Pirates.

Assuming this is true, the changeover should happen sometime in October.  I should of course caution everyone that this is still a rumor and not confirmed.  There's also no word of what fate the Little...

Many of our readers are excited for the new Phineas and Ferb meet-n-greet to open on May 16 at Disney's Hollywood Studios but we're hearing more and more rumors swirling that an opening on May 16 could be in doubt.

Based on the rumors we've heard, the May 16th opening could be in jeopardy. We had heard from sources that the scheduled date of May 16 was going to be tight and now our friends at MousePlanet are reporting that they are hearing the same thing.

We're hearing rumors of a possible construction-related delay of a few days for the Phineas & Ferb meet and greet, though the...


We're hearing that on April 6, the maligned Pixar Pals Countdown to Fun! parade will change direction.  The parade will instead start near Star Tours, flow past Echo Lake, take a right turn at the Sorcerer's Hat and finish up down Hollywood Boulevard.

Tests have already been conducted and rehearsals are scheduled for the new route.  The rumored reasoning behind the change to interefere less with the upcoming mega opening of Star Tours 2, which will be...


We posted some Citizens of Hollywood news yesterday that we heard about that I was confident was accurate. Turns out a lot more is going on in Hollywood these days. One of our Studios Central bloggers shared with me more rumors he had heard. I think it's worth passing along if it's true, but assume these are rumors until we get further verification.

A recent pin event at Walt Disney World may have revealed more possible destinations for the soon to open Star Tours: The Adventures Continue attraction.  A preview of a new set of pins to be released on May 20th in coordination with the opening of Star Tours 2 gave the public a hint of what's to come.

The new pin set includes scenes depicting the following planets

  • Geonosis
  • Death Star
  • Kashyyyk
  • Hoth
  • Bespin
  • Naboo

There were also pins that had scenes from Tatooine and Coruscant, but both of those planets have been confirmed to be destinations already.
