I might be wrong but I thought that was still 'rumor' and not fact. I haven't kept up with the discussion that goes with the site, but I haven't seen confirmation in what little I've read lately.

I think I remember Len testa amd Jim hill talked about it on their podcast and they’re pretty well sourced.

I have to disagree about Jim Hill. His rumors are so many and not always right that I don't believe half of what he says.

I know people here read and participate in other boards that have well-sourced members (I do, too), but I caution against posting and discussing anything from an unofficial source as if it's happening. Discussion should always be in the realm of "Well-sourced rumors say on X Board . . ." etc.

We even had one poser member (now banned for other reasons) who read the other board, and posted over here as if HE were the well-connected source when all he was doing was sharing info he read in threads over there.

I don't want MouseOwners becoming known as less reliable than a bus driver.

Until Disney confirms it, it's all rumor, no matter how well sourced. The better sourced rumor reporters indicate that, at least, new monorails are coming. I think confirmation of an actual order is way premature. We'll probably know more after the gondolas open if the rumors in this thread are accurate.

I believe what he says in the sense I believe he's sharing information he has. As always, it depends on the reliability of his sources and whether or not Disney has changed its mind in the meantime.

His podcast with Len Testa seems to be fairly measured.

As always, because Disney changes their mind at the drop of a dime, I don't know anything until Disney announces it. And even then, "Theater? What Theater on Main Street?" And how many announced overhauls of Downtown Disney until we got what they said? I think DS is revision 3.0 or something like that.

Sorry if I did anything wrong there. I really just thought it hadn't been confirmed as of yet.

And better worded about everything with rumors and some of the people surrounding rumors. Until things open, I always wonder if we'll get what we've heard about LOL

Like you said even if Disney announces something it's not always coming to fruition (like said theater)

No - you were fine, duly skeptical!

I've noticed a trend that when people read other boards with rumors, there is more posting of them over here with less clear attribution and a higher degree of certainty that they are fact when it's all still rumor!

Not singling any one person out. I've seen it in several threads from different people.

i'm a skeptic about anything any cast member says about disney. i see such phone calls as bogus attempts to appear concerned about guests and/or some way to get them to spend more money.
