Not surprised but unfortunate. Would prefer to see that pad left wide open for more options later. I suppose at least the front half could be used at a later time (whether for Morocco or for some unrelated project; I could see something similar to the African Outpost using that space).Part of the pad next door.
It it should be virtually impossible to see from the promenade if plans work out.
To be fair, what will remain could likely hold another pavilion. Several of the WS pavilions use roughly half of their pad. Mexico is a notable exception.Not surprised but unfortunate. Would prefer to see that pad left wide open for more options later. I suppose at least the front half could be used at a later time (whether for Morocco or for some unrelated project; I could see something similar to the African Outpost using that space).
Anybody know what the large showroom in the Germany pavilion is currently used for? It's a shame that can't be used during this expansion
storage. a shame isn't it?
The showbuilding for the Rhine River Cruise was never built. The ride would have only used a very small portion of what was built.Figured. I believe there was a Rhine river cruise that was originally planned there which would've been great
Thank you for sharing. For those keeping track here's a list of how this rumor played out:More to the point, I understand Rat is now permanent-marker green with construction commencing within the calendar year.
Any BatB work will involve relatively minor updates in New Fantasyland and more significant work for Theater of the Stars. Apparently the Pixar test this summer is meant to see how the space works as a flex space with differing day and night entertainment. It's not the only space at DHS under such consideration, and I personally agree with the attitude. It's a more efficient use of the space they have. Just have to see if we are smart enough to understand that one theater presents different shows.
Also Denmark, Venezuela, Costa Rica, UAE and Iran were in negotiations at various points in history.For @marni1971 or anyone who knows, as a historical curiosity... do you know what the planned sites were for the announced WS pavilions of years past? i.e. Israel, Spain, Equatorial Africa? I remember reading that the possible Swiss pavilion was going to be between Germany and Italy.
