Epcot entrance hotel is dead. Thankfully.
I'm curious about your opinion here. Are you glad it's dead because you think it was a poor design, ruining sightlines, or just the logistics of trying to do something like that in the front of an active theme park? This assumes you meant the idea of something in the middle and not out towards the bus lots.

So yeah.....
How about that D23 Expo...?

Here are a few quick drawings I did that sum up the Expo experience....from a certain point of view.
I drew these a couple of weeks before attending my first ( and only ) Expo in 2015.

Turned out, these were quite spot on.

The 'Fantasy' and 'Reality' of attendee expectations.

Your drawings left out the glaring sun and 100-degree temperature outside for the 2½-hour line to get in for opening day.

Poor design, location, ruining sightlines. Paris proved its logistically possible but this isn’t Paris.

The original reveal and entrance of the park was a masterpiece of design.

boat stuff
I was hoping this might be hinting at a new boat ride in World Showcase or something, but it's almost definitely related to the cruise ships.
And the thirds of Futureworld.
My guess here is that they are done with the current naming of Future World. I bet the thirds are what we currently know as Future World East, West, and the Innoventions area in the center. One or more of the newly titled areas may have world in the name.

If anyone still believes anything they read online, expect this presentation to be Epcot heavy. There should be something for Shanghai and something for Hong Kong, a few Marvel things for DCA (but don’t call it Marvel) including something I don’t think is “out”’yet - well not in the US (and it’s not Slingshot), boat stuff as well but plenty about Epcot. New CV film details. The UK project everyone’s waiting for. SSE. And the thirds of Futureworld.

Plus a few other WDW items outside of the berms. One of them just outside.
So nothing for DHS or DAK? That sucks.

While I know it won't touch the original revel of the park, will the improvements being made to the entrance at least be a step towards a better reveal?

I don’t think the changes will alter the reveal. My biggest disappointment is the moving of the tram station away from the multi modal interchange it strived to be. But that’s the world we live in now and I’m surprised it took so long.

Not that I’m aware of which of course isn’t everything
So if nothing for animal kingdom, or Hollywood studios is getting announced, how are they supposed to be fill a panel that’s supposed to be mostly world reveals? Does new-cot really have that much of a presence (I’m fine with this just generally curious) escipally with all the zootopia talk at animal kingdom.

If I’m keeping track in terms of new-cot we have:

1.) Entrance/ Spine
2.) Pavilon Logos and other general stuff
3.) Details on Guardians
4.) New country
5.) Details on play pavilion
6.) New name for future?
7.) Details on Project Kappa
8.) Poppins in UK
9.) Imagination?

I think I may have answered my own question...but still nothing for the studios or animal rock n roll retheme?
