I agree, most people I know, even those who have visited before not just first timers will complain about the lack of characters. That doesn't include those who even after a visit still don't understand that their are 4?seperate parks. I like imagination but it needs some love desperately, if sticking Inside Out in Epcot draws larger crowds then Disney execs would be stupid to not make the change. Of course updating imagination and making it a draw would be best
The DIS is reporting that 'multiple reliable sources' are saying that Inside Out will replace Figment at the Imagination pavilion.
I couldn't find this anywhere on this site. Does anyone know anything about this? Maybe this was one of the announcements they held back on at D23. I know this rumor has been around a while, but this is new reporting saying that this is definitely in the works.
If this is true...then I'm done. I'm out. It's not worth spending my time or money at WDW anymore.
We got the ride we have now because Kodak pulled out halfway through rebuilding the ride. Disney had to scramble to get what was left into a workable concept, so you ended up with, roughly, half a ride. The upstairs was closed because it was hard to access.. the stairs weren't very wide (you can still see them as you exit the gift shop), and the elevator was tiny. Plus it was hard to supervise.
The rest of the track is still, apparently, in the building, waiting in case it ever gets redone again, but I'm not holding my breath.
Insider info has the Imagination work pushed out by years, and no specific IP attached. As I said above.. assuming it gets started in 5 years.. I doubt IO would be the IP. It will be old and rather dated by then.
Heck, knowing Disney, it wouldn't surprise me if they were co-developing an IP specifically designed for the pavilion with one of the studios arms, just so they could have original, branded IP that is designed to fit.
Which it seemed like they were trying to do with Tomorrowland, but it fell flat.
I don't understand the whole thing about the upstairs being hard to access. It never seemed to an issue when the pavilion ran well for several years. The place always had plenty of people going up and down the escalators and never did I see it crowded to the point that it caused issues
The thing is... Figment and Dreamfinder have hit a bit of Renaissance over the past couple of years thanks to Disney and Marvel.
That's all the IP one really needs, and with the technology being used nowadays, these two could easily return to their rightful places as the de facto mascots for Epcot.
Soooo should I be concerned that I don't see any glass pyramids here?
I'd assume whatever the initial ideas were for the budget have been largely expanded. According to Box Office Mojo Guardians Vol. 1 made: $773,328,629 and Guardians Vol. 2 made: $859,302,680Thank's for the clarification, I don't know when the data I saw was produced,you would be a bit more knowledgeable to it than I.
