    I Doubt Disney would turn the Haunted Mansion
    into the Nightmare Before Christmas ride. People love the Haunted Mansion, Like me!

    As for Tom Sawyer Island, I could see the closing that down to make something.

    I could see that. I think that general area of the park is somewhat...less well-developed than other areas. Personally, I think they could get the Liberty Belle out of there, too, but I doubt that'd happen.

    you guys do realize that this thread is 3 years old....It might be fun to see what actually transpired, but the initial post was a long time ago.

    -i think the haunted mansion rumor turned out to be the refurb we saw this past summer 2007

    -nothing has happened to tom sawyer island yet, but of course still could in the future

    -im pretty sure nothing happened with IASW although i havent been in the world for the holidays

    of course its always fun to look at old rumors and see what actually happened

    I was at Disney World in July and the Haunted Mansion was closed. I would hate it if they turned it into a "Nightmare" themed ride. However, I love that they have Jack Sparrow on the Pirates ride. It is such a cool addition to the ride.





    I love Donald Duck

    haha why was this thread bumped, it's like three years old!

    Anyway, it's funny to see that only 1 of these actually came true. Just goes to show you that you need to take any Disney rumor you hear with a grain of salt, no matter how reliable you think the source may be.

    - The Haunted Mansion is going to be turned into a "Nightmare Before Christmas" themed ride (Say it ain't so!)

    - It's a Small World will begin having 'Holiday Editions' starting in 2006

    - Pirates of the Caribbean will soon be home to Jack 'Pirate' Sparrow around the same time the Pirates of the Caribbean sequel will hit theatres.


    Can anybody confirm or deny these rumors?

    I think the book was Birnbaum.

    and discuss the changes if you like.
    Almost all of those rumors were written by Jim Hill, who put it in the Unofficial Guide *ding*.

    And I believe you misinterpreted these facts.

    John Lassester wants to keep Tom Sawyer Island open.

    And the recent refurb of Haunted Mansion?

    The Pumpkin King was going to the Studios.

    I'm with Jack. I'm not sure why the thread was bumped, either, but it's always interesting to see what happens to past rumors.

    I like to look at the older threads because sometimes valuable tidbits appear. This was interesting though, and most of it never happened. Love the Jack Sparrow.
