<<It's 3 weeks before 2013 and the FLE and the revamped Test Track officially opened a few days ago. Wouldn't they be the things to trumpet for 2013?>>

Traditionally that spot has always been for the upcoming projects - so they will market FLE in particular to death over the next year. The problem is that WDW Co. think they are in an arms race with Uni now. And Uni has clearly had the better new product for over a decade now. And that order doesn't look like changing any time soon.

Will the figures in the new coaster be new? They look suspiciously similar to the ones that were in the Snow White dark ride (especially the ones of Snow White and the dwarfs dancing in the cottage). I guess it owul dmake sense to reuse them, but I don't know how they will look in a larger scale environment, where they will be farther away from the guests

Set the Way Back Machine to 1989, Sherman, and ask that question again.

America Sings AAs recycled into Splash Mountain.

It's a totally safe bet that the SW characters will be recycled from the dark ride.

I agree with leemac. Way too many of these "behind the scenes" pre-visualizations being released. There's also too much star treatment of some Imagineers.
Time to start recognizing some of the others, or shut up WDI.

I think it's part of the PR department trying to figure out how to adapt into the new world of social media. It's not at all obvious how best for big corporations to do this, and there are going to be missteps, including situations not unlike the old guy comically trying to be young and hip.

Once again, Aurora gets absolutely no love at the Magic Kingdom -- even though she was originally supposed to get her own cottage in New Fantasyland.

Why the "Sleeping Beauty" neglect in Orlando, I wonder?

"The problem is that WDW Co. think they are in an arms race with Uni now."

What is Uni pushing in 2013?

Oh wait, I forgot. Transformers.

Not only does Universal have Transformers with the N.E.S.T. Restaurant, they have Simpson's Springfield with Moe's Tavern and Duff's Beer Garden.

<<< Duff's Beer Garden. >>>

WDW could respond with Duffy's Beer Garden.
