IASW doesn’t fit Epcot? Huh? It’s a perfect fit for Workd Showcase and was in fact designed for a World’s Fair which Epcot emulates.

It’s always been an odd fit in the medieval Europe setting of Fantasyland (there’s a reason it’s set off on its own in DL).
It's a Small World is a perfect fit for Fantasyland - it's about world peace, and if that ain't a fantasy then I don't know WHAT is.

If only they had put Storybook Circus (or something very similar) off of MSUSA where it is a better fit thematically, they could have developed a better flow between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland.

Really not good especially for a Disney park. They just can't seem to let go of those two circus tents. 🎪🎪

I do not like the Story Book Circus area. they need to do something else with that back corner (keep Dumbo). they were cheap and didn't really bulldoze it from the Fantasyland expansion, they kept the buildings and tried to tie in a theme that is not that appealing.

Does anyone really want to see the Fab 5 dressed as magicians etc ? and Big Top Souvenirs is so far back no one really goes in there because they don't walk that far back in the park.

Please stop it 😢

I agree with you again. 😭

I remember measuring up the tents to find Frozenstrom would have fitted perfectly.

There’s still two sizeable plots

I missed the parking lot to the south -- don't see any other spot, though! Looks like there are existing buildings everywhere else other than south of Space Mountain if they could fill in that pond (I would assume they couldn't, but who knows).

It looks like there could be room for two things in that parking lot area, though.

Ideally Buzz would be rethemed to something better and of higher quality (or just higher quality) and a new build would go in the car park. Capacity and all that. But with the SGE mess we know that won’t happen.

I’ve trotted this out before too from 1980:

@marni1971 So I guess that means they can fill in the pond?

Not impossible but that pond was adjusted to handle more as part of TRON. Moving that much capacity would probably hurt the costs of any project trying to follow that concept.

Well that explains why it didn't look like there was much space there on current satellite imagery.

It was, but only in the vicinity of the COP. The (long dead) proposal didn’t involve extending into the lake. It was more illustrative, as also seen by the extended water courses north of SM and one that entered Tomorrowland by the (also never built) railroad station.

I’ve never gotten a definite answer but it’s believed to be the fabled Mary Poppins dark ride. I must chase it up again.

I feel like the spaces on the left are logistically not very accessible, and the Storybook Circus redo is a pipedream I'm sure, so that leaves the vacant main street theatre/old stage plot as the only pad it seems.

I would love to see them expand Adventureland (I know the Fire Mountain idea is long rumoured but not sure how true it really is. They would have to redo the access road back there and the train track again.

The area behind Big Thunder would be hard to expand to but not impossible, I don't see them getting rid of Rivers of America/Tom Sawyer Island. What would be really cool is a bridge from Frontierland to Haunted Mansion. That way when you go up to Big Thunder you don't have to just turn around and go back the way you came.

i think that giant pond just north of the new tron building would be a pretty cool side to expand into, they could raise the rr tracks and create a tunnel underneath it to access an entire new land.....i suggest tritons kingdom because its indoors so you wouldnt see the massive tron building. something like this i drew up in ms paint lol.
