Well, they do take forever. And they are playing the incorrect version of the Soarin music. Which part of that is false?

Do you also enjoy when they mention 7 lands at the MK Welcome Show? It's been 5 years.
truth

maybe they are counting the tangled bathrooms as a land?

As envisioned, park entrances are meant to alert guests of "coming attractions" like the previews before a movie. Soarin Over California's music is a head-scratcher for me. It's not a classic and not really old enough to trigger much nostalgia (contrast that to the 1982 entrance loop that now plays at park open, which is quite fun). They should use the current score. I am confident that the choice to keep the 2001 Soarin score is not deliberate, but rather a "why bother..." moment.

Of course, I also think it's strange that 17 years later, they still play Tapestry of Nations after IllumiNations. Salt in the wound, perhaps.
Or maybe they're just playing them because they're, ya know, good pieces of music?
 
I wonder too how much having no parade where people line up an hour early might effect sales at some of the stores down main street (bakery, emporium, casey's, ice cream parlor, etc.) my guess is sells will drop there - maybe they'll take notice and bring a parade back to MK... then again they'll probably just raise more prices to offset

I know some Mozart that would be considered just fantastic and I bet the perfect place would be Animal Kingdom since, you know, you only need good music anyway.

I do get your point by the way but I think the point still stands that the music should be a representation of what we can find in the park. Some classic songs from the old days are great but at least play the old and new version like they do with energy. In the case of Sorian, they can just play the current and new version.

This is such a ridiculous discussion. The old and new soarin music are essentially the same song with some slight modifications. And the Epcot entrance loop already contains a mix of current and former attraction music. It's ridiculous to be complaining or arguing about this. And yet here we are comparing it to playing Mozart at animal kingdom.

When did they start playing the 1982 loop at opening!? I love that loop, and I haven't heard about this until now! Maybe I have been living under a rock.

By sanity do you mean allowing Energy to sit in its curr5stale state or changing it and not using the IP?
Something needs to happen to this pavilion now! It is a horrible show right now and needs some love.... If it is not going this route ASAP with the IP then fix it put in a new movie update it and let it run.... Epcot deserves better then what is currently here....

Could sanity have prevailed? Maybe just once?
It would be great if "sanity" reigned and they decided to build a GotG attraction at DHS (or even MK's Tomorrowland, really) where it would be appropriate. With the news about Dr. Strange, they could actually have the start of a decent superhero land.

That said, Energy still needs to be fixed in some way and I'd much rather see GotG in Energy than messing with ToT, so hopefully that isn't what the choice is.

My guess, though, is that GotG is still going into Energy, just not on the timeframe rumored elsewhere.

Hopefully if Dr. Strange is very successful they could reconsider plans and think along these (smart!) lines for a DHS land.

Then again, that could also simply mean Dr. Strange in Epcot also...so...
