Did you see a large camera attached to the bottom?I was at Epcot on the 7th and saw a helicopter flying over during the day then one hovering behind Italy where we were watching the fireworks...I saw other flyovers at Magic Kingdom during the week...
Good point. Also eagerly awaiting the debut of the IMAX 4K projectors -- currently, sitting anywhere closer than the back 2/3 of any IMAX aud (purpose-built or "lie-Max") and the pixel grid shows up during digital projection. Annoying in a theater, would be awful if it happened during a ride.If they go to digital projection on Soarin', I hope that they work with IMAX to do a precisely aligned multiple projector "tiled" setup to create at least 8k resolution. I would think that even the new IMAX 4K laser projectors due later this year will not have enough resolution for Soarin' because you are sitting so close to the screen. It would really take away from the ride if you can see the pixel grid.
What has been removed would appear to allow for two extra theaters.Reviving this thread... @RSoxNo1
Surprised no one has mentioned this yet today (that I know of).
Actually, I would argue Soarin needs higher capacity AND Epcot needs new attractions. DCA has lots of attractions but it also welcomes fewer guests than Epcot.I don't know when WDW will figure out that Soarin' is nearly a walk-on in California because there is other stuff to do in the park. It's a great attraction and a must do every trip for us. However, if there were something decent to do in the Imagination and Wonders of life Pavilions and maybe attractions in a couple of countries in WS, the line wouldn't be as long.
Soarin was a walk on in California even when there was nothing else, of substance, to do in DCA. It's not so much that there aren't other things to do at Epcot, it's that it is one of the few anybody can ride attractions that don't put you to sleep. Seas, is a stand up pavilion, meaning you have to stand up during your visit. The rest of the Land is not exactly excitement provoking although good for some families, kids are not usually a real patience lot. Imagination leaves very little to imagination looks old, tired and antique, but does have a family ride. I was never comfortable bringing my kids to EO, when it first ran since he spent a lot of the film grabbing his crotch. (gotta love Michael, I guess). Ellen is a nice ride but long. I enjoy it AND I get to ride in the cool dark ride for almost an hour resting my feet and putting pressure on a different part of anatomy. Mission: Space... I love it, but, hey it has killed more then one person. (unfair I know, just thought it was funny. All preexisting conditions) TT is pretty cool but has a capacity problem of it's own.I don't know when WDW will figure out that Soarin' is nearly a walk-on in California because there is other stuff to do in the park.
