    EPCOT's Mission SPACE set to undergo exterior refresh

    I am glad they are investing in the upkeep of the exterior, but man.....the whole experience is so early 2000's in the worst way. The exit area and playground look like the laser tag facility I used to frequent as a pre-teen. Not good. I dream of the day this gets leveled. (That being...

    News Soarin' Over California returning to EPCOT for a limited time

    This was WONDERFUL to experience again. I don't mean this in a negative way, but it is wild to see how the OG show has started to show its age. Just in forms of film quality. It still is a gorgeous experience, though.

    Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

    Also........any bread crumbs you might be willing to drop regarding specifics?

    Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

    Thanks for the reply. It's fascinating to get a small insight into their thought process. Despite me being the EPCOT fan, I fully realize that the other parks need capacity....badly. It really stinks Imagination is left to fester, but I'd much rather this take its time and come out on top than...

    Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

    Test Track going down for over a year is going to hurt capacity. In an ideal world, they'd get a Wonders of Life project going before they shutter Imagination or Spaceship Earth.

    Rumor Figment, well, to be replaced by Figment

    This needs to close. It’s time. It’s in disrepair and it’s a below the quality standard. In years past, it was able to shuffle on, but it has reached the end of the line. I do think this may be the year an announcement comes. The figurative smoke is bigger than it has ever been. Fingers crossed.

    News Test Track to be reimagined

    I would imagine that Small World, Peter Pan and Big Thunder are being eyed.... Fingers crossed for Carousel of Progress to get love like Country Bears are getting. (Side note: Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and Buzz are looking ROUGH.)

    News EPCOT's Harmonious to be replaced with new nighttime spectacular Luminous

    Ugh don't get me started on Innoventions West. Just imagine the comparable refurb that could have received alongside Connections and Creations. Would have been great. Hopefully things are substantively looking up with Test Track 3.0 and fingers crossed for Imagination.

    News EPCOT's Harmonious to be replaced with new nighttime spectacular Luminous

    Completely agree. My biggest gripe was that it felt like it didn’t get the budget it deserved.

    News EPCOT's Harmonious to be replaced with new nighttime spectacular Luminous

    Illuminations was a masterpiece. Epcot Forever was extremely disappointing. Harmonious was a pretty good Disney+ commercial that had no place in EPCOT. Happy to report that Luminous was really quite lovely. Similarly to Journey of Water, the content and concept was FIRST and foremost…. the...

    News Big changes coming to EPCOT's Future World?

    That and FAR more dead, green space. Listen, I’m all for the gorgeous foliage and greenery that have added to the hub, but there is so much unused space in this first iteration. I think they made a great compromise with the version in place right now. (Minus the lack of fountain).

    News Big changes coming to EPCOT's Future World?

    Guest flow would be an absolute nightmare and the rest of the offerings, imho, look poorly designed and placed.

    News 'Encanto' and 'Indiana Jones'-themed experiences at Animal Kingdom

    Indiana Jones as an extension of the Echo Lake area is too perfect and they obviously won’t do that because it makes too much sense.

    PS as a RetroWDW mega fan, I’m aware of the work you do with curating Wonders of Life’s legacy and I bow to you, sir. Keep up the great work.

    News Big changes coming to EPCOT's Future World?

    Experienced the central spine for the first time last week. Overall, I like it. I think it is a slight improvement over what was there before. The omission of a prominent water feature, which has been discussed ad nauseam, is glaring. That being said, the central hub is successful. This is a...

    Journey of Water featuring Moana coming to Epcot

    I got to experience this for the first time this week. It’s lovely. Well designed and entertaining. And I appreciate that the Moana IP is really just fine print on the experience. That being said…unless you are actively reading the plaques you are getting not much out of the water cycle angle...

    News Big changes coming to EPCOT's Future World?

    It looks like they are building a access gate right near the Spaceship Earth side bathrooms. I'm assuming most of it will be reconfigured and some aspects of it will be removed.

    Innoventions Music Removal Watch

    While I whole heartedly welcome back genuine MELODY to EPCOT (thanks to this lovely new BGM), I really think they should do separate neighborhood loops. There is still so much musicality to EPCOT that can be explored by using themes from different pavilions in each respective neighborhood. And...

    News New Polynesian Resort DVC villas building to open 2024

    Yeah these have been on property and at the Polynesian for at least 25+ years, I believe.
