Secret plans to overhaul Disney World's Fantasyland?

Could Walt Disney World be re-awakening, like Aurora, from a recession-induced slumber?

The resort giant usually surfs from buzz to buzz by keeping at least one banner ride in the construction pipeline, but it hasn't announced any major attractions since it opened the Toy Story Midway Mania 3-D arcade ride in the first half of 2008. Instead, the only newsworthy announcements coming from the Mouse have mostly been price cuts and promotions -- hardly E-ticket stuff, although it is nice to be handed free food for families who book a vacation there through Sept. 26.

That could be about to change. In fact, the Florida resort may be about to transform the appeal of its very core and send its fans into fits of rejoicing.
