man... I wish I only read about this on sept 17th, so I wouldn't have to wait so long to find out what it is!

My guess is it's not something that will concern me, as we are just typical guests when we go. We only go to wdw, not any other park in any other part of the world. We only go 7 days, and we stay at the pop centruy. That's about all we can afford... unless it's concerning new rides, or new park in florida, then I probably won't care... but nontheless, I still can't wait to find out what it is!

Traditions is a course that all Disney CMs take during the orientation period.

I hope there's more to the announcement than that. I guess it wouldn't surprise me if there wasn't but man... by itself, that's a pretty lame announcement to make a big to do out of.

I've also heard rumors about a DVC store opening up in NYC, and I've also heard rumors about the Contemporary Resort villas going up for sale in October...

It would fit right in with Eisner-esque ideals. Create a bunch of hype for another money laundering scheme...I mean another way for people to enjoy the magic and dream of Disney. Or what if they are announcing next year's "Celebration," Wouldn't that be a kicker?
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

They actually announced this today, along with the Treehouse Villas at Saratoga Springs Resort for DVC.

Here's the official preview video for the Bay Lake Tower: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1DV6r1Nk54

Here's the official PR:
Future accommodations are rooted in Walt Disney World history

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla.(Sept. 16, 2008) – Two highly anticipated resort developments announced today will expand the Walt Disney World experience and continue the rapid growth of Disney Vacation Club, Disney’s innovative vacation-ownership program:

the 15-story Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is scheduled to join the Disney Vacation Club family of properties in fall 2009, while

the Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, scheduled to open in summer 2009, will become the next room category offered at that resort.

Disney Vacation Club also announced that Bay Lake Tower sales are scheduled to begin on Sept. 21 for Disney Vacation Club Members, while sales to the general public and sales for the newest phase of Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa will begin at a later date.
