    Could you say it all depends on who's 'in the room where it happens'?

    I'd assume there aren't quite as many Inside Out knick-knacks lying around...

    Patrick Stewart or someone like that is a much better choice

    Good one. I'd also like James Earl Jones.

    EDIT: to be clear, as narrator, no goofball Star Wars tie-in suggested.

    Are you able to address whether or not the Peter Quill visited EPCOT Center line from the D23 Expo was anything more than lip service?

    On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being the photo in the queue w/no other EPCOT Center narrative and 10 being a love letter to classic EPCOT (perhaps using the Time Stone to take guests on a tour of classic Epcot), where does this rank?

    Don't you want to criticize Articos for leaving out how Wall Street dictates what happens in the parks?

    Thank you. I'm sick of him going on about the Bobs acting as if he knows how it works. And I really appreciate your insight! Very much.

    A bit too specific for me to comment right now.

    I'm guessing you have never managed a budget in a multi-national corporation. And never had the experience of having your budget slashed by some arbitrary percentage by the CEO or CFO because your company needed to 'beat analyst expectations' and the only decision making power you had is what to cut (yet your goals are not adjusted accordingly)

    If you had you might understand why I say the CEO/Wall Street calls the shots for most US companies including Disney.

    Jeff Bezos to his credit refuses to allow Wall St to run Amazon. Most CEO's dont have the intestinal fortitude to say to Wall St 'Get stuffed, this is our business'

    I'm actually fairly smart and aware of how businesses operate.

    And yes the CEO sets the tone but as articos has said it's not as simple as you constantly blaming the Bobs for everything under the sun. But I know what you're trying to say when you do it but it's not as if Iger personally decided to replace Energy with Guardians or have movie previews in the parks.

    So, then, you would regard Articos' description of how decisions are made to be false since there's no mention of Wall Street meddling.

    It doesn't seem like he even read the post even though he commented and took it as agreeing with him. Lol

    since this is the most current spaceship earth thread will put this here; Happy to report the little beautiful coastal scene across from the Phoenicians has returned in full, and looks better than ever. (no little ship with the lantern) but at least the scene itself is back complete with twinkling stars, lit coast, and purple night sky. Also the smokestack silhouettes seem to be making a return on the right side (what was a black wall) across from the giant wheel....the bleeding light at the very top has been fixed as well and the stars look great. The stars on the black sheets have been fixed in the ascent going up on both sides, and at the end on both sides before the turning of the vehicle to exit. Little things yes, but all the effects seemed to be in working order and or returned. I do not know if the ride has been having some over night work or not, must have been lately, but in general all the scenes are looking better than they had.
