ORLANDO, Fla. — On Wednesday Disney denied a rumor about changes being made to the Enchanted Tiki Room attraction at Magic Kingdom.

- Article posted by WDWNT said attraction would get Moana overlay
- Disney refuted rumored changes in an official blog post
The rumor, posted earlier in the day by the unofficial Disney fan site WDW News Today, stated that Disney would give the attraction a Moana-themed overlay. In its article, the site cited "sources inside the company."
But by late afternoon, Disney seemed to refute the rumor with a post on its official blog.
"A little birdie told us there are some rumors flying around about our beloved Tiki birds at Walt Disney World," Disney Parks editorial content director Thomas Smith wrote on the Disney Parks Blog. "We're sorry that our fans are being fed incorrect information by unscrupulous sources. Although we won't address every rumor, we want to set the record straight: there are no plans for our feathered friends to fly the coup any time soon."
"We're constantly evolving our stories, but these birds will continue entertaining our guests at the Magic Kingdom Park just as they have done since 1971," Smith added.
Earlier this month, Disney responded to another rumor shared by WDWNT which stated The Land and The Seas pavilions at Epcot would be demolished as part of Epcot's multi-year overhaul.
Disney plans to reveal more details about its plans for Epcot at its D23 Expo in August.
