Another excellent point Jim, but my guess is since everyone and their mother has been calling for an update to that attraction(hence, the million and one rumors of a rehab) so Eisner & Co.(AKA Greed Inc.) may have finally decided to do something about it.
Some of the benefits of changing Fantasia scene are:
1). No large loss - There is no expensive audio animatronics to trash, no exotic set to lose. Aside from some tin foil and the canvas sheet that the movie is shown on, it's no huge loss to Disney.
2). If I had to bet, I'd say it'll be replaced with a fairly newer film, probably a Disney film, which helps boost sales of video and merchandise. Snow White would be a good bet as Disney released the Platinum edition DVD last year.
3). Helps quell people like us, yelling at them about need for rehab.
Most of what I just said is pure speculation, but it makes sense to me. :wink:
