      Please, please tell me more. Are these reliable rumors that I can go to sleep at night and dream about? What is the new e-ticket? Is it oft-rumored Incredibles ride for Tomorrowland or something different that we've never heard about? Did I miss a thread somewhere that discussed this?

        There's been a few threads discussing this. The master plan for WDW for the next several years has been confirmed to be mainly refurbishment of classic rides. Al himself stated a while back that WDW management was so blown away with the HM and Jungle Cruise that they were both going to get some major refurbs. (One of the ideas I don't like is that they may do a pre-show video while in line for the jungle cruise with Timon and Pumba).

        Nothing is confirmed in anyway, but it's widely speculated that Space Mountain is going to get a refurb in the next year and I've heard some fairly substantial confirmation that there is a plan for an E-ticket to go in the magic kingdom in either the old 20k spot, somewhere in adventureland, or in frontierland. Nothing has been given on either of those however.

          And these are just the things we know about.I think WDW is in decent position right now as its in a stage where growth for tourism in Orlando has come to a halt.So instead of building more new hotels and half built parks we are instead going to have the money spent on the already four existing parks.To keep them looking strong and fresh and to keep making money out of them.

            ORDDU: As I recall, even Michael Ei$ner used to refer to Disneyland as the 'Flag Ship' Park. Not that I usually agree with anything that man ever had to say. But for once I suppose he actually did say something we could agree with. But, really, it's a matter of opinion. If you're basing you're opinion on a purely financial point of view, then at least a coven of witches has an idea where you're coming from in what you're saying. But in terms of charm and creativity--alone--we'd still have to say that Disneyland outshines them all and is the true 'flagship'.

            ORGOCH: Maybe they meant ta say Walt Dizzy Whirl was the 'fagship' a the Dizzy theme parks. Ain't they got the biggest draw fer Gay Days?

            ORWEN: You should know, old biddy. You were there to see for yourself, you know. In the meantime, I've also heard Disneyland referred to as the 'crown jewel' of Disney theme parks. I'd have to agree with that, too. But that does NOT mean I'm putting Walt Disney World down by saying that. Walt Disney World is wonderful. If we didn't think so, we wouldn't go there so much. It's just that Disneyland appeals to us even more--enough to rate it as the very best of the best.

              One problem with DL is that too many guests pay too little to enter the park.

                I only post reliable information.

                From what I've been told/pieced together, money has already been budgeted for major redos on both Space Mountain and Jungle Cruise, with a few smaller add-ons to Pirates.

                As to what the E-Ticket will be, I can't tell you because I don't know myself. But, yes, it could be the Incredibles.

                    I did not mean to imply otherwise, I was just wanting to dig a little deeper. Thanks!
