As heard on the WDW Radio Show, episode #71, for the week of June 15, 2008:
At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, across the street from the Toy Story Mania attraction, walls still block Guests’ view of what will be a new Studio CafÃ©, meet and greet area, and merchandise shop. Rumors about this area include a meet and greet unlike any other in the parks, and a quick service restaurant that will offer selections beyond burgers and chicken nuggets. One thing that many people have commented that they wished they could purchase in the way of merchandise would be the virtual prizes that you can win at the end of the Toy Story Mania game. I’ll just say that sometimes wishes do come true….
Also at the Studios, not only were the Star Wars big figs delayed until September, but the special ears that I spoke about for some time were also not ready. From what I understand, they were not intended to be limited to the Star Wars Weekends, and thus they will be available later in the year. Speaking of Star Wars Weekends, rumor is that next year will be the LAST for Star Wars Disney big figs, due to licensing issues. MY guess would be that we will see an Obi-Wan figure, and many have already begun to speculate about who or what else would be next. Donald as Boba Fett? Goofy as Chewbacca? Chip and Dale as Ewoks? Who knowsâ€¦
If you have any rumors to share, email Lou here or leave a voicemail at the WDW Radio Show voicemail box: 206-202-4WDW (4939).
