Disney has sent a mystery invitation out to the media regarding a major new theme park related announcement they will be making on September 18th at noon, somewhere in New York City. As stated in the invitation, “You’re invited to join Disney Parks for a special announcement -- so big we’re bringing the news to New York.” The announcement gets a little strange here as it promotes “New, breakthrough insights about how American families travel will be shared by Peter Yesawich, Chairman & CEO, YPartnership, one of America’s leading travel trend-watchers. Following that, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Jay Rasulo will unveil exciting plans for 2009--including a first in the history of the Walt Disney Company.”

Speculation about quite what will be announced has included Disney’s Jungle Trek (previously night kingdom), a park project for China or perhaps the 2009 celebrations for the Disney Parks. Should be interesting to see!

I had the same reaction as Becca . I also heard a rumour while at WDW that they are closing the WOD in NYC . The reasoning is to be more people browse than buy . You can't prove it by me as everytime I've been there people were buying . I hope this is not true as I always visit the WOD and buy .

So after I read the posting, I looked around and was able to find something that I bet will be announced sept 18th, since it was sent to college program campus reps just a few days ago....
