Now the the IP-ization of Epcot has begun...I think the most realistic additions are IP based add ons to existing countries.There will always be a bad moment in time for adding a specific country into WS. Which is why I don't think we will get many new countries at all. But since the point of the thread was, what else we would like to see...that is what I stated.
Not sure what you mean by 'ratatouille ride model is far more likely' though? Are you referring to countries with Entertainment IPs that can be leveraged? If that is what you meant, I would assume so as well.
There’s reasons why there haven’t been countries since 1988...and the Scandinavian consortium that sponsored that one collapsed before opening.
Disney has always been too demanding/unrealistic with their requirements since then...and kinda were even before.
If they are finally moving off that stance and will pay to operate the pavilions...then Carnivale for everyone!...I say...
I want them to prove me wrong.
