    So I was looking at the map on Snapchat, and you can see stories from different places, does Epcot do this every night? I've never seen this before... The word said Illuminations and it was revolving around SSE. Anyone ever seen this before? Have I just missed it all this time?

    If there is a new narrator it really should be none other than Neil "The Grass" Tyson.

    did the true rift and reason ever bubble to the top as to why there was a split between said sponsor and said ride

    I think people know, it appears to be something that will lose people their jobs if leaked.

    My guess is that Disney shut it down so they could turn SSE into an IP based ride. That leaves GM as the last surviving sponsor in Epcot, right?

    What about Chiquita for the Land? Unless I'm not up on the sponsors.

    GM's Test Track, Chiquita's Living with the Land, Gildan's Colortopia, Coca-Cola's Club Cool, and Smucker's Garden Grill are the ones I can think of other than Siemens for Future World. I think there's still a few in World Showcase but I can't remember any of them.

    I could've sworn Nikon sponsored that camera store next to Spaceship Earth.

    And Test Track is specifically Chevrolet now, no? Not GM overall.

    Totally random but I walked into our cystoscopy room at work the other day and noticed a big SIEMENS label on the special x-ray bed. Couldn't help but laugh because it was the first time that I remember actually having an interaction with something made by the company
