    Should have a 'Benny Hill' themed attraction. Classic British comedy from the 70's. Have Benny been chased by underwear clad ladies whilst he slaps a little old bald bloke repeatedly on the head :)

    Diamond Horseshoe is open year round. I went there the other day to eat. The problem is that it's so small. It doesn't even have its own restrooms, you have to go to the Adventureland connector for restrooms! But I love it and it's awesome. TT is open more now but they butchered the menu. Another cool bonus tip is that if you don't like the Skipper Canteen's food you can order off the menu of either the LTT or the DH because they share a kitchen.

    Only during busy periods. And only for quick food.

    It used to be a sit down dinner show attraction.

    They have been operating fairly regularly now as a family style table service meal. Still not what it once was or should be.

    At least they've realized having a dedicated dining room closed most of the year in the World's busiest theme park was a mistake.

    I would love a British Invasion/general music ride, but sadly we know anything outside an in-house IP is about as likely as getting an E-ticket.

    No that is not true it is exactly like the Liberty Tree Tavern. I can guarantee you that. Just look at the app. It doesn't say open seasonally.

    Edit: but the menu is slightly different from the LTT. It still is open year round now. Check the menu too- it's not quick food.

    Apologies. It's changed since last time we ate there.

    But still. It's a shadow of its former self.

    I still vote for Poppins or a Beatles Yellow Submarine "Journey to Pepperland" dark ride.

    I think it should something like Soarin' over the Uk(heaps of landscapes and sights), or a similar idea if that would be too costly.

    Epcot shouldn't have a roller coaster, as it doesnt go with Epcot's ideologies and the fact that you don't feel like youre in a theme park when youre there, but something more. If they added a roller coaster, or another type of normal seeming ride, it would take away the feeling that Epcot is more than just a theme park, which Disney shouldn't take away - the only possible exception would be a Matterhorn Bobsleds coaster like in Disneyland.

    You can still create thrills and a great day out with fast paced dark rides(like test track) or amazing attractions(like Soarin', they should create more fast paced dark rides though.

    I don't think that this would work as a ride, as it doesn't properly portray the UK correctly, and that I think nobody would be that interested with it(Person1: "Do you wanna go on the Mary Poppins ride?" Person2: "Really...?").

    I think the UK pavillion needs something like Soarin'(probably way too expensive), or a boat ride showing some of many landscapes and sights in the small Nation.

    I disagree. As long as it has some educational part after the ride or in the pavilion to draw people in to learn, I am fine with it. Roller coasters are fun and can be used to draw people into a pavilion to learn. It's not about the ride teaching all the time IMHO bc there is only so much you can teach in a given timeframe. The pavilion is really where you can give lot's of information. While I loved World of Motion and other rides (I was 8 I think when it closed yet it still is impressed in my mind) of that sort, I think the people who will not want to learn won't have to while the people who do can have a whole pavilion to do so. I hope I elaborated enough to get my point across.

    A well reasoned argument, let's just agree to disagree.

    Because Poppins is "classic" Disney -- even the IP haters will EAT IT UP.
