Booked again - whats new?

Well,

after spending 3 weeks last christmas and 2 weeks in March in Orlando I've just booked again for 3 weeks in Aug/Sept 2013...

Let the countdown begin!

Obviously Fantasyland will be new (just saw Goofy's barnstormers in March but that was about it), but what else will be finished by then?

What about the replacement for Jaws at Universal?

thanks

Test Track at Epcot will be re-opening by year end 2012, with the soft opening possible at any time.

The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow is replacing Narnia at HS, and is in soft opening, but some early reports I have seen about it are not all that favorable.

With repsect to post 2, WDW now says the bakery will still be called the Main Street Bakery, but will be serving Starbucks coffee and some Starbucks pastries. Some of the old Main Street pastries are supposed to survive as well, while some will be sold elsewhere. The reason for all the confusion is that WDW took a lot of heat when it announced that Starbucks was going in where the Main Street Bakery is, and WDW was forced to backtrack from its original plans.

Hi

Despicable Me has replaced the Jimmy Neutron simulator ride at Universal. Basically the same type of ride/format but with a different film.

We went on it in August. We had not seen the film, so we had no real idea what it was about. However, it was very well done, and the pre-ride area is funny.

As it was new it was the most popular ride at Universal.
