    News New Play Pavilion to replace Epcot's Wonders of Life

    not up to code? as far as ADA ramps? I can't imagine they were not grandfathered in if they had kept the same attraction going...

    News Big changes coming to EPCOT's Future World?

    According to the last drop of concept art, there was no new fountain other than what was in JOW...There was a large planter in the center with seasonal decorations...but no visible fountain....Did I miss something?

    News Reflections of Earth confirmed to be replaced by Harmonious

    the current Harmonious show was just not worth the blight... The overall show felt disjointed and too much like a collection of cartoon clips...It needed to be more about the park and less about Disney movies... Yes use some of the elements of the Disney Characters, but not necessarily a...

    News Tron coaster coming to the Magic Kingdom

    Having ridden it in Shanghai i can agree with the first bullet point... The interior queue is cramped and unpleasant..(.look at Disneyland's Space Mountain interior queue). The kinetic energy that the launch/canopy section creates comes at a cost to the overall attraction...Yes it looks nice...

    News Big changes coming to EPCOT's Future World?

    Looks like it would still be a year out... to me anyway... It is a lot of rockwork, and the landscaping portion would be pretty substantial...not just dropping some bushes in place... It is incredibly rough still... a few lath frames for rockwork are just a drop in the bucket... I am guessing...

    Connections Cafe and Eatery

    It is brand new, looks inviting, it is also a central hub currently... you must walk along the glass windows to get anywhere in the park....so that sets up a situation where you are being funneled past the doors... makes it easier to decide to go in and get out of the heat. Also there are no...

    News Space 220 Restaurant dining experience at Epcot's Future World

    Coral Reef could use a refurbishment, but I am afraid of current management doing it... The pictures of Space 220 look great... when you are there though, it doesn't quite feel the same way...

    News Space 220 Restaurant dining experience at Epcot's Future World

    Yes! Encounter was a product of it's time...but presented a room full of exuberant color and texture and style... all of which feels lacking in this space... Space 220 screams budget...it depends solely on the windows and is and of itself, a big dark gray box.... After you have looked at the...

    News Space 220 Restaurant dining experience at Epcot's Future World

    I think it is probably a lack of staff...We noticed the same thing.... I would imagine the about of repeat business won't be that high... It is too mediocre and too expensive, and the interior, while having windows into space, still manages to be completely charmless. You are essentially paying...

    News Space 220 Restaurant dining experience at Epcot's Future World

    Remember the "lounge" is just the back of the dining room and the walkway to the restrooms...This was not a purpose designed lounge...more like Oops we forgot to put a bar in...we will just call this spot the "lounge"...A gigantic missed opportunity for a really special space that would have had...

    News Space 220 Restaurant dining experience at Epcot's Future World

    even using the word "Lounge" is deceiving... It is just a bar against the back wall of the room , part of the dining room...there were no "Lounge" tables, just the bar and people walking to the restrooms... The space is completely charmless... The "elevator "Lobby and entry hallway were nicer...

    News Space 220 Restaurant dining experience at Epcot's Future World

    We ate there first weekend in June and the food quality and service were terrible. Aside from the windows intro space, the interior is an awful gray box... (Think old B-list airport) The bar area is miserable looking...just part of the room with a mirror so you can see you are in space...This...

    News Morocco Pavilion redevelopment

    There is no reason the pavilion has to remain Morocco specific... Add a few more architectural flourishes and it could be just about anywhere in that region...I know the tower is based on a real mosque, but the rest of the pavilion is a hybrid of a lot of ideas... No reason that this could not...

    Massive Jungle Cruise Wait Times

    The re-hash of the Jungle Cruise is so underwhelming too...There is so much that could and should have been done with it besides adding chimps and more bad jokes... (at this point they could rename it Monkey River) This ride even has an indoor portions screaming for a real moment...instead of a...

    News Morocco Pavilion redevelopment

    Oh if only...A real quality dark ride would be amazing... And the song is catchy and I am sure they would sell a TON of merch...It would continue the trend of the countries becoming a little more whimsical...but definitely more kid friendly...And since Magic Kingdom already has Agrabah in...

    Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

    This was also the key to making The Great Movie Ride more relevant...Imagine projection mapping the sets for a more cinematic look and feel... Changing out a couple scenes like Alien...it could have been even more fantastic. The original Imagination ride was an easy fix and update relatively...
