Princess Diana Gowns Coming to DTD
This past week the website Disboards posted a rumor (since removed) that the former location of Virgin Megastore in Downtown Disney West Side would be replaced with an exhibition of Princess Diana's gowns! The rumor stated that a contract had been signed between Disney and Maureen Rorech Dunkel, the lady who bought 14 of Princess Diana's gowns a few weeks before the princess died in a car wreck in August 1997.
Save Pleasure Island can confirm that this rumor appears to be true. The following is an e-mail sent to students at the University of Central Florida's Rosen College of Hospitality Management:

With no disrespect intended to Priness Diana, this is just a travesty that Disney is so desperate to fill empty space that something like this needs to be brought to Walt Disney World.
Update: It's now official. This exhibit is coming!
