Also, I didn’t feel any similarities between Soarin’ and Awesome Planet.
They're both really big screens showcasing (admittedly breath-taking) views of the wonders of the world. I'd even add with a handful of "4-D" effects, and cameos from fan-favorite animals like polar bears and elephants. Granted Soarin' is a mix of man-made and natural wonders, and AP is just less recognizable natural landscapes, but to me, seeing them back to back would be like riding Spidey and Transformers or Kong and Supercharged back-to-back.

To me, the Circle-Vision shows have always been more like Soarin’. I felt that much more walking out of Far and Wide.

Our world is in chaos and nothing feels safe, but sometimes good things do happen.

In this week's Disney Dish, Len reports that the BatB sing-a-long is the lowest rated attraction in Epcot and every age range except for preschoolers prefer Impressions over it. Data sampling size is self-reporting Touring Plans users along with statistical ratings from guests in person.

Kill it.

I walked in to Awesome Planet fully expecting to find a completedly gutted, state-of-the-art new theater. It had never crossed my mind that Disney just left the Circle of Life theater untouched and sitting empty for years. :lol:
