Disney Rumor Round-up: Changes Ahead for the Hall of Presidents, Paint the Night on the Move, and More

Happy middle of the week! Today we're taking a different spin on our regular Disney news round-up and we're talking about Disney rumors. That's right ... it's all rumors all day, but just for today. Also, these are rumors, which means there is no confirmation. Let's check them out!

The Hall of Presidents is in our rumor round-up!The Hall of Presidents is in our rumor round-up!

File this one under the Disney Political story o' the day. There's a story circulating that Disney is considering not allowing the President Trump animatronic to utter a single word when the Hall of Presidents reopens later this year. Apparently, according to this post, Disney is considering going waaaay back in time to the 1990s version where only Abraham Lincoln and George Washington speak.

Disneyland's former nighttime parade, Paint the Night, has packed up to be shipped somewhere ... but where is it headed? Could it be headed to the Magic Kingdom? We'll have to wait and see.

This rumor has been floating around for a few weeks, but some folks are talking about the possibility of a Haunted Mansion-themed restaurant for the Magic Kingdom. There is nothing substantial (yet) about this one, but how cool would this be?!?

Another Magic Kingdom-based rumor is this one: could Disney be planning a volcano-themed attraction ahead of the 50th anniversary of the Magic Kingdom? Um, maybe. This rumor is rather intriguing.

Disney has reportedly filed permits for a project that looks to be replacing the Universe of Energy. There is no official word yet from Disney about what this project might be.

And finally, this isn't a rumor but more of a controversy.

Pandora " The World of Avatar doesn't officially open until Saturday but there's also some controversy surrounding the land's two new attractions. Both Flight of Passage and the Na'vi River Journey require guests in wheelchairs to transfer to the attraction vehicles. Many guests are saying that a land based on film where the main character was in a wheelchair should be more accommodating. We found some additional information about both rides here.

What's the best Disney World rumor you've heard lately? Let us know in the comments.
