    So far all we know for sure is Midway Mania.

    Rumored have been:

    Cali Screamin' getting a funhouse overlay for its queue and Disney villians placed around the tracks
    Grizzly River Run getting animal animatronics
    the entire Grizzly Wilderness area being expanded into Radiator Springs and being rethemed as a 20th century national park area
    Maliboomer getting redressed with a Toy Story army men theme
    The addition of "carsland"
    Mulholland Madness being changed to Crush's coaster
    Addition of a lighthouse tower to control Wonderful World of Color nightime show
    placemaking changes in both the entrance and paradise pier

    Forget 'Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln,' Samantha Brown is Disney's most sophisticated animatronic.

        Like I said, it's just a rumor (one I don't put much stock in) but if it happens, I'd imagine the costs of such a project would make it pretty permanent.

            I don't think the Grizzly Wilderness area will change to Radiator Springs. That whole thing is rumored for the Timon Lot.

            Why change the nicest area in the park?

                  placemaking changes in both the entrance and paradise pier

                  I don't completely understand the last one, but otherwise I think these are all great ideas and they should implement most or all of them!!

                  oh yeah, and they could definitely add an island or some similar feature in the water. if it were up to me, this would be the best place for a lighthouse feature (on a rock island!). you could then take a short boat trip (make it interesting by adding other features in the water to "tour", like miniature versions of Channel Islands and/or other geographical features. a strong but friendly sized wave pool feature generated from the SE corner would make you feel like you're really setting out on the ocean. when you get to the lighthouse, let everyone disembark and give a quick tour and photo op. better yet just make lighthouse a separate feature with a small bridge to it to tour from the inside, then the water ride could give the ocean view of it up close.

                  either that or add an exciting water ride sans lighthouse. think speedboat races, or anything similar. something controlled (with rider input?), but fast! either of these would be a remarkable improvement... the latter would easily add another "hit" ride/attraction to DCA and fill the void of nothingness.

                  holy smokes... they should really hire me in the creative/imagineering dept. see how easy it is when you put your brain to it

                    with the exception of CS, these are all remarkably generic/boring right now. heck even CS was suffering from a serious lack of good sound to go with the motion until they upgraded the speaker system for Rockin' CS.

                        Isn't there a rumor of adding a Wilderness Railroad to Grizzly Peak also?

                          yes, there was a rumor about adding a railroad in one of Al's reports. But it is just a rumor. This thread should be called What We Think We Know
                          "Once a man has tasted freedom he will never be content to be a slave. That is why I believe that this frightfulness we see everywhere today is only temporary. Tomorrow will be better for as long as America keeps alive the ideals of freedom and a better life. All men will want to be free and share our way of life... I thank God and America for the right to live and raise my family under the flag of tolerance, democracy and freedom."
                          -Walt Disney, March 1, 1941

                          “Whatever success I have had in bringing clean, informative entertainment to people of all ages, I attribute in great part to my Congregational upbringing and my lifelong habit of prayer. To me, today, at age sixty-one, all prayer, by the humble or highly placed, has one thing in common: supplication for strength and inspiration to carry on the best human impulses which should bind us together for a better world. Without such inspiration, we would rapidly deteriorate and finally perish. But in our troubled time, the right of men to think and worship as their conscience dictates is being sorely pressed. We can retain these privileges only by being constantly on guard and fighting off any encroachment on these precepts. To retreat from any of the principles handed down by our forefathers, who shed their blood for the ideals we still embrace, would be a complete victory for those who would destroy liberty and justice for the individual.”
