    I've seen a rumor on Facebook that a Loch Ness monster inspired attraction may be coming to the UK Pavilion. Seems a little far fetched and I haven't seen it posted about in here. But the group I'm referencing has a pretty good track record about posting information.

    Has anyone heard anything about this? @marni1971 @Magic Feather ?

    I've not heard a definitive theme.

    Nor a definite concept.

    But things have been banded about.

    I'm thinking Mary Poppins as far as IPs go.

    If an attraction is built, do you know where it could potentially go? (No worries if you can't talk about it :) )

    Hmm...So tell me Marni is it pathetic that I look for clues? For instance...when you say 'banded' could there be a 'band' involved in this non-definitive concept/theme?

    Maybe its a clue that the placement of the attraction will involve demo'ing the area where British Revolution plays???

    Might be able to use a Nelly "Hedge" to hide an incoming or outgoing gondola... It might be aMAZING what one could do to keep our attention away from new transportation site lines..

    Alice in Wonderland maze ala Paris? Meh. Hope not. To block the lines I suppose it would need to be a large show building. Any other hints :)

    It would be a great place to put Mr Toad's Wild Ride (the trackless version) back into WDW, don'cha think?

    Interesting. A Loch Ness monster attraction would certainly fit and be a nice addition to Epcot, but doesn't fit the IP obsessed tendency of Disney these days (unless it's based on The Ballad of Nessie, which I would doubt).

    Also, it's interesting because an attraction based on the Loch Ness Monster would be a perfect fit for DAK if they ever had a Beastly Kingdom type land, though certainly it makes sense in Epcot as a kind of cultural/mythic type addition.

    Mystic Manor-esque type attraction since Epcot has no haunted house type attraction and should. IMO.

    Hmmm. Does Marni say banded instead of bandied for a secret purpose? Does the conversion of Maelstrom into Frozen portend an IP based focus, which would argue in favor of Mary Poppins (live action film soon to be released) as opposed to Loch Ness? Oh the mysteries of Epcot.

    A "you will get wet" water ride which Epcot lacks.

    A small family roller coaster which Epcot lacks.

    A flat ride like a carousel or tea cups which Epcot lacks.

    Today's DI$ cares only about synergy and IP. Since there is a sequel in the works, 'Mary Poppins' is the only thing that makes sense.

    YES! It is time for Mr. Toad to return to Orlando!!! He never should have been evicted. MOTORMANIA IS NOT A CRIME!

    I am pretty sure Busch Gardens has a roller coaster named after Nessie

    While a return of Mr. Toad would be fun, the area involved is already almost perfectly themed for a Mary Poppins attraction of some sort, if some of it is outdoors. There may not be enough room for a huge attraction there anyway, unless they also took out some of the store fronts surrounding the courtyard as well.

    But the "band" comments have me intrigued ...

    I love that idea....possibly a new park specific character? I'm in favor of Mr. Toad, Robin Hood, or Mary Poppins as well!

    True! It is surprising that Epcot didn't open with at least one flat ride.
