Branson Tri-Lakes mentioned the crafters - different crafters on park weekly.

The Lost River thing is certainly a big rumor at the moment, as are some other things. We'll see what happens with that later in 2019. I presume there will be walls up in August if that pans out.

As for crafters, they probably have to get more nuanced with them due to declining quantity and quality of actual crafters. People don't necessarily want to park it at SDC for a month or more anymore. Focusing on bigger names on a weekly basis may be a good strategy. Gives them more spotlight.

Welp, I watched the preview video and wow, I am super excited for next year! Hopefully I'll actually get to go; haven't been to SDC since 2016. I do get to go to Dollywood on Halloween this year, so it'll be cool to see LumiNights and get a taste of what's coming to SDC next year.

Also, I wanna point out on their 2019 page that they mention an "expansion" at Grand Exposition with the "new Woodland Hike." I'm very curious to know what that means!

Heh I was right on about the Pumpkin Festival and it's presumed location. It will be a good fit for GE.

Sounds like it's an interesting year.  I appreciate how it looks like they are doubling down not just on one or two shows but beefing up the entertainment as a whole.  That's good because is some spots it looked like it was starting to slide.
I'm curious about the big summer production.  That could be really good, or really cheesy. Hopefully it hits the good mark.  The other shows and festivals look to be fun.
Those who had a feeling about October were right on.  I noticed it said crafting days, but then no other mention of the crafters.  Wonder what's really happening with them.  But the fall evenings should be nice at least.
Overall, very nice.
What I've been hearing I didn't see mentioned at all, and that's partially why I didn't talk about it- strong rumors and nothing more.  What I've heard is that they are taking out Lost River and the BBQ rib place and completely redoing that entire area of the park, including a new rapids ride and other additions.  I've also heard it's a 2 year project, which would account for why it's not mentioned.  It also may not happening, which would also explain that.  lol  So we'll see.  :-)

More shows to counteract the lack of indoor attractions when the temp falls.

lol, yeah and I was right about them doing a "year of shows", though it wasn't much of a leap from the teasers and previous year's of emphasis.  ;D

I would guess that the Woodland Hike thing at GE is going to be a small trail around the perimeter from the gate at the insect rides to the gate by the elephants. If you look on google maps you can see where it could go, though the topography is a little steep at certain points. This will probably be something like a trick or treat trail or maybe just a bunch of pumpkins in the woods.

Sounds like a exciting year. I was hoping that a replacement of IAWL would come about but looks like it will be the same old same old there. A very interesting choice for the summer though with a pirate themed show. I will be curious to see how they theme this out to fit in. But, A very good effort overall for the park.

Great announcement and it looks like great additions for 2019! I'm most intrigued about the summer Broadway show and the new fall offerings. I kind of figured the pumpkin nights would be coming since that has been such a hit for DW. I will be excited to see how it pans out. I think Valley Road and Grand Expo are the perfect locations for it. One thing I hope they do is step up the BBQ for the Bluegrass and BBQ Festival. I didn't make it to the park during that festival this year but it definitely sounds like it was lacking.

Very excited for 2019!
