    The only thing I can find is this article from TPI from last year which says 86%.

    I don't know what's normal, but it seems like Disney would try to push that number to the mid-nineties. After all, refurbing + retheming rooms is much cheaper than building a new hotel.

    That's an average, some days are lower and others at capacity. They probably measure out the prices when totally booked and determine if that's an amount they're willing to leave on the table or not.

    I haven’t looked at the WDWNT article, but does he place the location of it in the pond next to Imagination and on the way to World Showcase? Because that’s where the New entrance concept art places it and where @Marni1971 has said it’s going.

    I mentioned this a few pages back in this very thread.

    I am curious how a glorified bar meets Chapek's demands f0r "more timeless, more relevant, more family friendly, more Disney." I guess that goes out the window if there's a chance to make more money.

    What I'd give to be able to interview that guy.

    No, I didn't. That's the point!

    It's all spin.

    It was sarcasm...Of course we all knew Epcot's soul has been long gone

    Changes ongoing to the entry and Tram/security area at Epcot:




    Work likely in preparation for increased crowds from Skyliner at this entrance:

    WDWNT is appearantly hearing that The Seas and The Land would be potentially demolished.



    Soarin would apparently stay, as a stand-alone; as work would begin sometime in-between 2024 to 2026.

    Wouldn't shock me, although they are saying it's more definite than that of what people are thinking.

    Personally, if it's actually happening; then it just reinforces that nothing will ever be sacred.

    Unless we find out what would replace it that doesn’t make sense at all.

    Part of me would think that the only way that The Seas being demolished would make sense, is if it's going to be apart of the rumored Epcot hotel in some shape or form.

    As far as The Land is concerned..that's a real headscratcher for me.
