News Announced: Mary Poppins Attraction in UK Pavilion

Right...so yeah I "believe" ratatuiolle...

It fits a specific need and is economical.

Brave doesn't make quite as much sense...yet. I'd need to see more of an angle on that to believe it.
I can think of a few reasons why Brave might make sense from Disney's perspective:
1) It features a princess, making it a near lock to be popular with young girls, a demographic that the UK side of WS doesn't really tend to very much at the moment
2) It's Scottish, so it can help broaden the appeal of the UK pavilion, which is currently very London-centric

Aside from that, there could be reasons that we have no way of knowing (i.e. perhaps somebody thought up a great ride idea that happens to work well with Brave, they could be considering a Brave sequel, etc.)

In the end, trying to intuit what Disney will/won't do is close to impossible, given all the factors, even if you can see patterns after the fact. Having real inside sources tell you what they are going to do is a lot more valuable.

Perhaps...that's why I'm in "watch mode"...not "believe" as of yet.

I'm almost all Scot...so I'd love it. But I don't see disney trying to "diversify" one country pavilion in that matter. They're trying to do additions to draw more family crowds into epcot with innings eater attractions to pull heat off magic kingdom and the impending blitz on MGM...

Does brave do that? Maybe...I can see an appeal. Not much of a princess angle in the traditional sense for that however...they could easily tap Alice for that as there is no Orlando version of an Alice ride.

They usually stick to more "franchise" models for rides. I couldn't really see a brave 2 coming...Pixar is in a bit of decline and I'm not sure what we can expec moving forward...who knows?

I hope we hear something about this soon (maybe D23 in Japan) or at the shareholders meeting and it’s worth the wait

I believe that the D23 in Japan may center more around changes to other parks, as they weren’t very featured at D23 2017. As of the shareholder meeting, I don’t know. However, I have feeling that Brave and Coco will be announced together, two Pixar properties coming to World Showcase, at least it would make sense

.....and Following the DCA model the area will be renamed "Pixar World Promenade". Disney Parks Blog describes the area as "A showcase of world cultures told through Pixar cartoons (with a few random leftovers we couldn't make fit the theme and hope guests dont notice)! NEW IN 2021! Sure to make your vacation - and world peace - more magical!

What forms of transport/unique props are used in Brave? If it turns out to be a Fantasyland-style ride, I’d imagine it would follow the tradition (Snow White with the beds/mine carts, Pan with the ships, the Tea Cups, Hunny Pots, and so on).

Other than spinners (boooooo!) I have not a clue what would be unique to epcot and not elsewhere.
Edit: there are no roller coasters in epcot but I sincerely doubt it’s that also GOTG is coming so I guess it wouldn’t be unique for Long.

One of the possibilities we have discussed is a shooting gallery game, which would be a newcomer to Epcot, and would definitely be a good ride system for Brave, however I remember a Flat Ride being discussed for a long time, so that's as far as my ideas go...

I hope it’s this that could be really fun addition. Just hope it’s better than buzz. That is quickly turning in to my least favorite ride on property.

I completely agree that for the Brave IP this has a lot of potential (I definitely prefer this to a Flat Ride, but there might something better right under our noses that we haven’t considered) and would be a fun ride, however @marni1971 has been so vague that I’m not sure of what type of ride to expect, other than a great one as he likes what has been proposed and greenlit
