    wow not sure why I am posting on this. Everyone already squashed the rumors. All I have to say is why do you waste your time posting these known lies. I mean really, not a single on of those rumors are even remotely plausible.

    While I can't speak for DopeyDancer but I think WDW NC Daddy said it best, it is entertaining to hear some of the wild rumors and I can get off my high horse long enough to give kudos for her humorous post. I've heard my share of rumors over the decades. Some unbelievable have come true. The vast majority have not. Who would have thought that Disney after spending all that money on the Disney Institute would raze it? A bus driver told me that. Guess what, they did. Who would have thought Disney would halt Hyperion and after crashing so many buildings would just halt. Who would have thought Disney would let Phase Two of Pop sit and rot like Disney did? All the start up and fizzles that went with that one. Who wasn't surprised it actually went off the last time?

    I for one was able to get DopeyDancers post of humor. It is fun to be entertained and just lol every once in a while rather than always berate our fellow members. But some enjoy berating and that isn't entertaining.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    The problem is that although the post may have been intended to just be humorous, there was no direct indication of that fact, and thus some will read it and believe it and start running around going "Oh Noes! They are closing down my favorite attraction to make way for a Starbucks!"

    Which is why I simply addressed the ones that needed addressing, and certainly hope it didn't come across as berating.

    Exactly. And then to lie and say that you got all of this erroneous information from Disney employees, well that's just silly.

    I heard that Main Street USA is going to be totally enclosed and turned into a Walmart.

    Oh No. Another member spreading vicious lies. Don't you know that our membership is so gullible that they are going to believe that. For shame. Now by tonightTwitter will overloaded with posts of Walmart on Main Street.

    But wait...I can't tell, are you being serious? I have a relative that works at WDW, I'm going to give him a call and get to the bottom of this............

    Hold tight, we are in limbo here awaiting confirmation as there isn't any indication from your post if you are serious or not.

    With the absence of individual enclosed shops, and the Emporium becoming one giant walk-through t-shirt shop, how is it NOT already a Walmart?

    I really don't know what problem you have with my posts lately. But apparently you have this belief that you are part of some small exclusive "membership" that reads this site and consists only of those who know everything that really goes on at WDW. Hate to tell you this, but the site is public, and can be read by anyone looking for information and could do a google search, come a cross that first post, and believe what is said.

    See, now I'm confused. Would this news item be filed under rumor or fun fact? I just can't decide!!

    Then again, around here, that line is often blurred.

    Jim Hill told me so it must be true.

    Jim is an INSIDER. This means he is INSIDE when the grown-ups talk. He listens to what they say and writes it down in his little notebook. Then he goes to his house and tries to decipher his writing. He posts what he thinks he wrote on his website. Sometimes he even gets it right!

    You have much knowledge.

    Thank you for phrasing it in that very respectful manner.

    Problem with your posts lately?

    Given the above post, I don't even know how to respond to that...but it is kinda self-explanatory.

    Hate to tell you this, but the site is public, and can be read by anyone looking for information and could do a google search, come a cross that first post, and believe what is said.

    Insightful.


    So what I have learned from one post today:

    The sight is public. News flash.
    It can be read by anyone looking for information. Who would have known?
    And a Google search could result in a user receiving false information and believing it. Say it isn't so!

    And I wasted years of my life pursuing a business degree when I could have just read this wonderfully brilliant, educational post. You should teach.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.
