Rumor New nighttime show at Epcot

It is funny how I am reading this thread and ROE is playing on SubsonicRadio! It is hands down my favorite fireworks show of all time and a "must do multiple times" for each visit. In fact, when I go down to work and don't have time for a more then an hour visit to the parks, I make it a point to make that hour around 9:00 where I hang out at IG to watch (albeit obstructed) RoE!

I think the magnitude of changes in Epcot will be greater than in any of the parks at WDW. From the name, to the nighttime shows, to new attractions, countries, etc. While I do think they will incorporate more "Disney" to some of it, the original purpose will not be lost. Just brought forward a lot. And it will be expensive.

From my brief discussions with CM's, it sounds like Disney wants to embrace the the retro-80s nature of the park while pushing it forward -- trying not to get stuck in 1982 but keeping in mind people's fond memories of the place. I can completely see them going back to EPCOT Center going forward.
Is that why they want to throw Mr. Meme Lord's Wild Quip Fest into Energy? Because it's so retro 80s?

It would have to be "Disney EPCOT", wouldn't it? They seem to be doing away with the possessives -- When DCA changed its name it went from "Disney's California Adventure" to the radically different "Disney California Adventure" . . . must have something to do with image?

I'm just glad they don't seem to be looking at a bigger departure -- nobody needs "Club 'COT", or anything of that ilk.

I heard this was part of Steve Job's influence when he was on the board. It's like the Apple iPhone.. not Apple's iPhone. The removal of the possessive makes it the definitive version.

First of all I am not a kid. Second of all I have a very personal connection with the park and to me hearing RoE is being replaced is akin to a death in the family.
You've really gone off the deep end here. You have admitted to only being in your 20's - so yes, you are a kid. Second, someone who has only visited WDW a few times, and not in the last decade, can claim no such personal connection to anything there. Get real.

From what I understand, an apostrophe can also mess up or make confusing common internet things like search engine results, hashtags, website addresses, etc. Easier and cleaner to have no punctuation, dashes, etc.
