April Fools’ Day Round-up

2 Apr

Wasn’t yesterday a strange day in Disney news? Here are some highlights of April Fools’ Day pranks:

  • The Disney Blog had rumors about a fifth gate breaking ground at Lake Buena Vista.
  • Yesterday’s Mouse Guest podcast has info about celebrations and refurbs planned for Epcot’s 25th anniversary, including really exciting news about Figment! (Last year these guys completely fooled me . . . this year I was better prepared.)
  • MouseVine broke the news about a great new restaurant at Epcot, L’Originale Il Giardino di Oliva.

And of course, my own post about Carousel of Progress (which I’ve since amended in the title, just to make it real clear that this was in fact a prank). And countless postings on message boards, including DIS boards postings about “free dining” announcements (which are probably coming soon anyway) and systems glitches leading to $39 rooms at Animal Kingdom Lodge (don’t I wish!).

Surely there was more . . . please post here if you’ve got something I missed!

[Updates: dlm3 on the MouseGuest forums alerted us to the April 1 Window to the Magic Podcast, which is definitely worth a listen. Gotta love their April 1 edition of the “Where in the Parks” game! Also, I caught up on my podcasts, and both WDW Today and Inside the Magic had pranks. WDW Today’s was more subtle than most; plenty of people seem to have fallen for it.]
