    another facet of all this is likely that in modern day most major citys have a science museum...among others...why do i want to pay disney prices for that? i mean honestly.

    looks like they'll need to tale a page from Sum of all Thrills.

    I hope Buzzy is prepared to welcome new guests for an all out new body crew.

    Why not create a ride which shows off new upcoming technology in some way. Can use screens with 3D type stuff that can more easily be altered as technology changes.

    THINK needed to go. It was a sad monolithic exhibit. Frankly, I'd rather they do something that, I dunno, actually talks about how technology works, instead of vague marketing crud.

    But, hey, what do I know. It will probably be replaced with IBM's "Adventures in the Cloud", a wild romp through Apps, hashtags and vines.

    that's not what I would call "right", I was just wondering if there was just going to be another vacant hole in future world. Your comment seems encouraging though thanks!
    Edit* ah I see no hope*

    He should be counting his lucky stars. Working WDW, he could have it a lot worse.

    Interestingly, the hub included info on the closure of Test The Limits Lab, but not IBM Think.

    I was at Innoventions two days ago and a cast member that was working at THINK informed me that the exhibit is most likely going to be closing in April.

    The last thing Epcot needs is to loose any type of exhibit. I really like that area. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Does anyone know the reason why Innoventions and EPCOT in general has trouble finding/maintain sponsors? ON the surface, it feels like an ideal partnership for technology companies and corporation to get in on, which was exemplified when EPCOT first opened.
