You ever see the OG?
I fail to get attached to Epcot because I recognize it’s supposed to be a fluid environment that welcomes change. The new changes are gonna really bring life to that park especially all the trees and gardens which is what I’m most excited about! I’ve always envisioned Epcot like a worlds fair with exhibits/pavilions that can be used to showcase an idea, company, or IP through either a ride, film, shops, or restaurants. If an IP is attached then cool.
This argument that IPs don’t belong in Epcot is a little ridiculous. IPs have always had a home in Epcot just before instead of it being Disney characters it was outside sponsors getting you to buy their stuff. There was nothing wrong with that and neither is there with having Ratatouille in world showcase or Moana in WN.
I’m excited for the changes at Epcot and hopefully they keep the changes coming. If we wanna get mad at something it’s the lack of anything new in that park for so long. And this is coming from someone who loves Epcot’s past, current, and future form.
Drive-by postings like this are also bad, btw.
Anybody know what is up with the Baymax M&G? I had heard that he was going to be leaving on the 9th with a bunch of other things, but a friend sent photos meeting with Baymax yesterday. Did they delay his closing? Can find nothing official on any sites or blogs.
Yes, it's closing at a later date, or so I read
Ok, cool. Hopefully later than September 30th!
How is a brand an ip? That doesn't make sense to me within the context we are talking.
So apparently Impressions de France is going to close for infrastructure work on October 2nd. This coming from @Marni1971. Will reopen early next year.
Presumably it will reopen along with the sing-a-long in mid-January for Festival of the Arts?
Guess this is to prepare the show building for the beauty & beast sing-along.
Thank God this is alternating with Impressions since this is the only element of the Epcot renovation that i genuinely hate since it, from what I've heard, is focusing less on the original and more on the shitty live action remake.
It’s also to prepare for the new version of IDF...
If I miss both Impressions and Spaceship Earth in January, that'll really put a damper on the day at Epcot.
Have there been any indications yet when Wonders of China is going down?
Oh, shoot. Really? Their updating the old film? Nice. That's actually pretty good news.
Supposedly. It’s been rumored for quite some time and @Marni1971 seems to think it’s happening.
Fountain of Nations Water to be Introduced into New Water Feature at Epcot - Blog Mickey
I appreciate the gesture.
This seemed like an obvious decision. They literally had to do it, otherwise they’d never get to boast about the nations pouring in water at the grand opening again. And the company loves bringing that up.
I wouldn't have thought anybody involved would have cared enough to bother, frankly. I'm glad someone apparently did.
As an added gesture, the fountain will also be filled with the blood of the Dreamfinder and old mortars from IllumiNations
