Greetings internet dwellers!
I say it every year. I don't play the permit game. The permits aren't something I get excited about. They just reinforce what we already know about where, the locations will be. While they do offer information about the where, things generally don't change from year-to-year. The only time they really do change, is if there is a major shift inside the park.
This year though, we have a change that is interesting. Soundstage 22 looks like won't be used this year. For some reference, Soundstage 22 held Ghostbusters last year. So the line that is in front of the Rockit stage, for further reference.
Instead, it appears that Soundstage 23 will be used. This, as you would expect, has sent off wild speculation. The biggest chatter being, perhaps they will use the Rockit stage for a show, perhaps Academy of Villains. While I never count anything else out entirely, it's more likely that Soundstage 22 is just being used for filming in the fall. And even with Soundstage 23 being used instead, they can still use the Plaza as a line for Soundstage 23, as it's the stage right next door.
That being said, we also haven't received a permit for Soundstage 22. While I think that Stage 22 won't be used (*wink, wink), it's still a possibility that it will, and the permit just hasn't shown up yet. It should also be noted, that Soundstage 23 was last used in 2011. It housed The Thing and Nightingales: Blood Prey.
Anyway, so the permit game begins. You can follow other folk who look for these things closely. I probably won't pay too much more attention, unless something drastic happens.
Hasta La Bye-bye for now.
