    UPDATE on tom sawyer island!

    Disneyland Island Safe for Tom Sawyer, Say Imagineers
    Disney Imagineers, who are responsible for designing the attractions at the company's theme parks, have downplayed reports by an unofficial Disneyland website that the company is planning to turn Tom Sawyer's Island, one of the original Disneyland attractions, into a Pirates of the Caribbean Island in time for the release of next year's Pirates sequel. In an interview with the O-meon website ("for the grownup geek in all of us"), one Imagineer remarked that the project could not be completed on such short notice. Others said no one had seen any designs for such an attraction. Moreover, they noted, changing Tom Sawyer's Island would also mean changing the Americana theme surrounding it. Indeed, asked one Imagineer, "What are guests going to think of the Mark Twain [a stern-wheel riverboat] gliding around a tropical island?"

    There you have it.

          Kind of, but not really.
          Neither story denies that someone in marketing asked imagineers to start imagineering TSI into a pirate island, and in time for POTC 3. (Which, again, I think reflects the major issue in The Mouse House right now.)

          Neither story claims that it was a go and to expect the change.

          They seem very similar and complementary.

                    Good. I like TSI and am sort of on pirate overload.

                          Come on!! Everyone knows that Disney will neither confirm or deny anyting until it's own media tools are announcing it. Usually a week after the event happens. We had already completely gutted Super Stupid Lamo...I mean Super Star Limo and started the install on Monsters Inc. before the suits would even admit a new attraction was moving in. Disney loves it's secrets! That way if it falls thru they don't have to explain why! Nothing is sacred at the park, with the possible exception of Walt's Trains.

                            To that end, has Disney announced anything about a certain section of Paradise Pier officially?

                                I love TSI and have been on pirate overload for at least two years now. That's movie and hype overload. Have always loved the POTC attraction, always will - just hate to see Disneyland turning into Pixarland and Pirateland.
