    I don't hate the basic idea. You can see they're trying to make it all make sense. I don't know what about Guardians will involve the idea of "Discovery," (I suspect nothing!) or why Imagination falls into "Nature," but an attempt is being made to give some semblance of cohesion to the former Future World.

    It looks like Imagination! is a part of World Celebration.

    It’s human “nature” for us to have big “imaginations.” That’s how Disney will spin it.

    It kind of looks like the borders of the "Worlds" cut right through the pavilion. Odd.

    The Imagination Bathrooms are all about Nature. But the rest is about Celebration lol.

    Yeah this is where I am too, there's an ok idea here with the new districts but they're already betraying the concept of them on day one so I don't know what to think.

    We're all in agreement that these places are just gonna be referred to as Discovery, Celebration and Nature, right? :lol:

    Gotta be honest guys but the announcement that gave me the most excitement was the new Walt Disney statue for World Celebration

    WORLD showcase
    world DISCOVERY
    world CELEBRATION
    world NATURE

    They tried to make it congruent, but 1 of them the first word is the main one, and the other three the second word is important. Feels janky to me. But whatevs.

    At any rate, they sure beat Universal to having a Worlds Park!

    A Universe is bigger than a world lol.
    Either make them like “Discovery World” or add the word “of” in there.

    World of Discovery
    Discovery World

    Much better options.

    Looks great. But feels weird that they’re giving him a front row seat to the park’s changes lol.

    Well, that presentation really didn't serve up what I was hoping for. Most of it was stuff we already knew and/or previously announced. As for the new stuff...

    Mary Poppins. This is a lone exception, I'll certainly take this for sure. Too bad they really skimmed over this announcement.

    As for the renaming/formations of the neighborhoods,

    ...I'm pretty much in the same boat. I'm fine with the idea, though when certain parts don't fit the neighborhood you're placing it in, it's not a good sign. Much like one of the new Epcot posters being one of the neighborhoods.

    The Walt Disney Statue. This is the first W.D. statue which I legitimately don't like. The park we got was never like his actual vision, nor what it is now. This feels like pandering/back-patting at it's worst for me.

    SSE 5.0. While I'm not a fan of the current version, it just needs a few tweaks such as a actual ending and a better script, all of which is completely doable. With what was teased/shown, I think a lot of us are hoping they prove our fears wrong, myself included. But that concept art is just so on-the-nose to Moana...

    Basically how I felt before the panel. Nice. Epcot can't get worse. But so far this project just isn't all that exciting.

    It feels really odd to add one and sort of paint-by-numbers.
