Downtown Disney Expansion

According to WDWMagic.com, on 3/12 (tomorrow) Disney will announce a "huge" expansion project in Downtown Disney. Hopefully, Avatarland is not being placed there. In any event, there should be lots of internet chatter by later in the day tomorrow.

Maybe nothing official today, per WDWMagic.com:

"Extremely poor weather in Central Florida today makes conditions less than ideal, and as a result we understand that a public announcement and related media appearances may not take place today. It is expected though that Walt Disney World leaders and cast will still be notified today of the expansion plans for Downtown Disney."

I saw some leaked plans on a website last week. I really like the ideas they have.

Long discussion thread from WDWMagic.com, with apparent inside information leaking out as far back as 10 days ago, for anyone interested:

It was officially announced today. Check this out:

You will note it won't be open for three years, so there is no rush to go there.
