    Journey of Water featuring Moana coming to Epcot

    The best part of these pics is seeing that ugly paint scheme finally gone from the former Innoventions East.

    News Big changes coming to EPCOT's Future World?

    Glad to see that hideous paint scheme going away on communicore/innoventions.

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    The Epcot Forever I saw concluded with a musical shift to "A Whole New World" from Aladdin, signaling a shift to an IP laden musical score we might expect from Harmonious. I'm curious as to whether they might use that musical opportunity to light up the new LED screens in World Showcase lagoon...

    News New Park Entrance coming to Epcot

    I'll wait until I see what the tacos and donut look like as a daytime fountain. Disney gave up on preserving sightlines at Epcot when they allowed the Dolphin and Swan hotels to be built.

    Disney’s Q2 (Jan/Feb/Mar) FY 2021 Earnings Results Webcast on Thursday, May 13, 4:30ET.

    I own a couple of hundred shares of Disney stock. I first bought when it was $99 and again at $116. It's currently down from its high of $200 in the past year, but still a good investment to hold for the long term. I'm grateful every day that Disney got into the streaming business when they...

    News New Park Entrance coming to Epcot

    I completely agree with what WonderOfLife just wrote. I was 36 when Epcot opened and watched its progress from the moment it was announced. My first visit was within six months of opening. I was overwhelmed. It's hard to keep up with the future. We barely had personal computers when Epcot opened...

    News New Park Entrance coming to Epcot

    Thanks for sharing these pictures. It highlights what little impact those lights make in daylight.

    News New Park Entrance coming to Epcot

    Doesn't look like they will be obtrusive. Lots of potential for how LED lights can enhance the nighttime view. (NOTE: I originally wrote laser, but these are LED lights.)

    News New Park Entrance coming to Epcot

    In one close-up version of the concept art for Epcot's new park entrance, there are no trees shown (where palm trees once stood). Instead, there are a series of flag poles to the left and right of Spaceship Earth. I loved the original palm trees, but having visited the park more than a few...

    News New Park Entrance coming to Epcot

    As a person very critical of the tombstones (from when they were first installed), I'm so happy to see this finished. Looking forward to the addition of topiaries throughout the entrance area as shown in the concept art.

    News New Park Entrance coming to Epcot

    The weird paint job on Communicore/Innoventions did nothing to enhance it.

    News New Park Entrance coming to Epcot

    I met up with friends a few years ago at Epcot. They had been to Epcot previously, but their kids never had much interest in it so they hadn't spent much time there. I introduced them for the first time to the movie in China, The American Adventure, and Impressions de France. They loved it all...

    News Walt Disney World's COVID-19 reopening plans announced - July 11

    Some people, having originally heard that you could remove your mask while eating or drinking, interpreted that to mean that as long as they had a drink/food in hand they could walk around the parks without a mask. Thus, the recent re-statement of policy.

    News New Park Entrance coming to Epcot

    The concept art for Epcot's new entry shows four flowering trees in that center planter. Although they've also used it in the past to put up displays related to the current festival (Spring Flower & Garden, Food & Wine, or Holidays). Once the fountain is finished, there should be good views of...

    News Walt Disney World's COVID-19 reopening plans announced - July 11

    When I first visited Epcot in March, 1983, I lined up for nearly an hour at the WorldKey reservation center behind Spaceship Earth while my wife and inlaws headed for The Land pavilion. I spoke with an agent via the video screen and was able to make lunch and dinner reservations for our party...

    News Big changes coming to EPCOT's Future World?

    I was at Disney World at the end of February and pedestrian traffic was diverted toward The Seas at that time (on the west) and past the former Universe of Energy on the east side. Walls were set up just beyond the exits to Spaceship Earth. There was no access through the Innoventions West...

    News 2020 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival

    I've circled a portion of this picture in red. Does anyone know what it is for? A bird feeder?

    News Big changes coming to EPCOT's Future World?

    Sorry, CJR, I stand corrected on concept art. I think I was reacting to the new maps that show open space between the north and south ends of Innoventions East. But perhaps the park maps have always omitted the covered breezeways through Innoventions.
