Who thinks they should reopen Wonders of Life in Epcot with some new Inside Out theming?

    I had all the floors in my house replaced with ballpits a few years ago. I concur. Bad idea.

    Hah, well, I wish I was kidding! It is why at the stores I ran I strictly enforced tube checks that involved checking the pits every half hour (even if I had to do them myself during non peak
    times), santizing nightly and swapping out the balls for a deep sanatize and removing damaged once a week (whih a lot of DMs argued with me about because buying a redundant set of balls was several hundred dollars.

    Anything is better than empty unused spaces with "special events" as an excuse!

    After seeing Inside Out,

    1. Train of Thought PeopleMover-esque dark ride between WoL and Imagination (Imagination stays mostly Figment/Dreamfinder, but Bing Bong is incorporated). Could even go around all of Future World with a show scene in each pavillion.
    2. E-ticket suspended dark ride (similar to Adventures Through Inner Space, but with small coaster sections)
    3. Cranium Command retooled for Inside Out
    4. Rotating shows/exhibits in the special events area

    Funny thing about that....after the success of Tomorrowland's Peoplemover, the original concept drawings for Epcot's Future World at the Transportation Pavilion (built as World of Motion) that would circle around the park, and through Communicore.

    In less than a year, Disney has had two very successful films that could be used in the pavilion. Inside Out could take the place of Cranium command, and Big Hero 6 could be used to highlight advances in medical treatments and technology.

    Don't count on it. Even though such an arrangement would be a perfect set up for normal, rational folks like you and me and almost anyone I could pick at random on these messageboards, Team Disney Orlando seems to be run by a special breed of stupid.
    Unless Baymax and Joy can start pooping sentient snowballs that they can label as "Frozen", I'm not going to hold my breath.


    Meanwhile in Anaheim....

    Normally, I'd agree with you. However, Pete Docter and some of the other Pixar guys seem to be lobbying for an attraction, and their boss, John Lasseter, is both nominally head of Imagineering and seems to have some pull with the higher ups. If he gets someone in Burbank to lay down the law with TDO in regards to an attraction, there's a solid chance we'll see something get done.

    I just saw "Inside Out" last night, that's a no brainer...With all the publicity and great reviews for "Inside Out" if Disney does not move on this quickly and not take 2-3 years to finish this pavilion they are nuts! It would not be a "tacky" move like Universal Studios who changed the name of an existing roller coaster and made it a "Harry Potter" ride....

    at this point I would love to see them do anything with that pavilion rather than it being empty/reserved for special events

    I've been thinking of possibly an underwater basketweavers convention. We can hold seminars in WOL and then practical exercises at the sinkhole in the lake by Odyssey.

    If it's just a new show replacing Captain EO, I'm fine with it.

    And if it's a ride where Figment is teaming up with the cast, I'm fine with it.

    I just want Figment to be kept around.

    While I hope thats true, watch Disneyland get it first, they dont seem to think about WDW as much.

    Docter/Rivera agree that it would be a great fit in Epcot, and they are trying to make it happen. I have no idea how much power they have though.

    I just saw this last night, and I was trying to explain to my girlfriend how the film "felt very Epcot-y", from the characters, to the music, to the logic of the whole thing, I just think it would be such a perfect fit.

    If you haven't seen this film, you really, really need to do so-it was so completely enjoyable.

    As long as Docter doesn't blow over $200 million on a live-action film that winds up bombing, I think he's got a good chance of pulling this off if he really wants to.
