Does anyone remember the "Epcot Double Decker Bus" that had various Disney Characters traveling around World Showcase throughout the 1990s and early 2000s? After learning how WDW's been handling the characters (trolleys, single floats, standing on buildings, and Boats) that bus would be very useful now. Wishful thinking, but they should revive/bring back the bus and have various characters waving at guests as they're moving across World Showcase.

Here's footage of the bus traveling around World Showcase from 2004.

If they hadn’t sold them they could.

Hopefully it’s not something bad. Maybe Space 220?
Putting the pieces together from various things I've read here and on Dis it seems like that's basically ready (from a construction perspective, not necessarily decor and staffing). Fingers crossed.

Hopefully it's something like this. I think worst case scenario, the announcement is EPCOT won't reopen as planned due to insufficient demand. Perhaps it will be delayed a few weeks to allow demand at the other parks to rise a bit.
