Total Hoax: Lost Island Coming to Walt Disney World

DarkUFO has confirmed this to be a Total Hoax.
If you were hankering to join Jack, Kate and Sawyer on Walt Disney World's new Lost-themed attraction, sorry to disappoint you, but it's all a hoax.The report on the Disney's Folly Web site was posted by a joker named Jason, who 'fessed up to his prank on this message board."It wouldnt' take much digging to find that my intro to this blog (kicked off a few weeks ago) describes Folly and Faux as a sort of playful April Fool's stab at Disney-related wishes. Disney fans are always tossing around rumors and ideas for the old Discovery Island, and Lost constantly comes up. So I knew with my exhaustive fandom, I could cook something up. I shouldn't have underestimated the viral power of the Internet."Whatever.

Walt Disney Parks and Resorts has announced extensive plans to convert the old Discovery Island in Bay Lake to a new Lost-themed attraction. Lost Island is set to receive guests by the Summer of 2011, a year after the show concludes its six-year run on ABC.

“We strong believe that the show will live on in popularity after its conclusion. This type of show can be successful in syndication for decades and with the advent of DVD—sales of which have been very high for this series—there is clear evidence that Lost will remain popular well after next Spring's series finale," said Celandine Coda, vice chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts.

That is freakin AWESOME! I'm so glad I live 90 minutes away from that. Finally...a reason to go BACK to Disney World.

I think that TPTB should create some kind of traveling Lost museum that can go everywhere in The States.
