Ratatouille concept art

Pop fans will flock to Alton Towers on July 6, when the park will host a concert featuring Olly Murs, Little Mix and James Arthur, among others. Over in Paris, the new Ratatouille dark ride at Walt Disney Studios is starting to take shape, with the attraction building's facade currently under construction. LEGOLAND Florida's denials that it is installing a pirates-themed land for 2013, meanwhile, are looking a little shaky.

Weird that Legoland would deny building a pirate-themed addition when the evidence seems to run to the contrary. What's the point in the secrecy?
