I could see EF being extended if most of the public wants an Epcot thing on WSL(Not that Epcot was in the Reg IllumiNations brand from 1988-2019) with a little IP at the end.
Jim and I have at least three sources who say it’s going to run for a year. Things can change, but that’s the current plan.
The tepid reaction is the whole point. Lowering expectations. The title of this thread is wrong. RoE is being replaced by Epcot forever. EF is being replaced by HarmonioUS. You see, if the new show is mediocre, reception is much improved if we have to live through a year of a terrible show. Going back to the days when a good show was replaced by another good show every couple of years is a lot of work. You need to lay some groundwork in case the new show is meh. Plus, I'm sure many were surprised to find out that there was no RoE movie or Illuminations TV show for such a popular thing.
Kinda like right here...Honestly they should of put at least the framework of the globe as a statue in front the entrance of Epcot or some where on property
