    The middle ground between light and shadow...
    I'm glad something is coming back to that space.

    Weird, not exactly what I was expecting. But at least there's something open in there now.

    It looks like the presentations they did in the Odyssey for the Festival of the Arts.

    That’s because it basically is the same thing. They do the Animation experience during FotA as well. Right there in The Odyssey.

    What’s crazy is this little thing made the local news in Orlando.

    I'm surprised that they could achieve that level of theming in the short 8 month build time.

    So, people are going to ride the train to walk up a path to enter the building to watch a video? Period?

    Is Epcot a new slang term?

    I mean, there are other things to do at Conservation Station, no? Animal exhibits and character M&Gs. Or have those not survived?

    They still had the petting zoo last time I went, but the issue is, the whole experience is a hassle to get to.

    Looks like a Value Hotel lobby with chairs.

    C’Mon guys... I get it looks a little cheap, but this is IN ADDITION to everything else already there.

    Just yesterday we were talking about Disneyland making cuts. At least this is a new offering to the area - one that people enjoyed for YEARS at DHS.
