PI Update: Rumor Roundup

In response to Downtown Disney supposedly being renamed Disney Springs, this is what one forum reader posted on the WDW Magic website in response to others commenting that the new name reminded them of a retirement center!  One of the funniest things I've ever seen posted.

At this time I've complied rumors from several sources about what's supposedly coming:
1) The Landing, the alleged new name for Pleasure Island, will be full of dining and drinking options. (Park Rumors)  Comment:  And thus hope of an adult entertainment area later at night!
2) On plans, The Landing is labeled as "Dining and Libation". (Lee-WDW Magic)
3) Wetzel's Pretzels on the West Side to be replaced with a Starbucks. (Park Rumors)
4) Planet Hollywood to close and is being replaced with The Observatory.  (Park Rumors)  Comment: DJ Tony Z has confirmed to the Blog that PH is closing for renovations. The new name is likely a code name for something else.
5) World of Coca Cola and American Girl Place coming to Disney Springs, locations unknown. (Theme Park Insider) Comment: American Girl likely to be located near AMC DTD 24. Will Planet Hollywood become the new World of Coke?  Will AMC Pleasure Island 24, which changed its name to AMC Downtown Disney 24, have to change its name again to AMC Disney Springs 24?
6) New footbridge across lake to connect Fulton's Crab House area to Cap'n'Jacks area, offered as a bypass to the congested area near World of Disney and the Lego store. (Theme Park Insider)
7) On plans the Adventurers Club is labeled as "Lounge/Cafeteria Concept" and an artist's rendering has a train locomotive sticking out of the building! (Lee-WDW Magic)  (Comment: Say what?)

Will continue to keep you updated with rumors until Disney finally makes an official announcement.
