    So... now that Tron lightcycle is being hyped in MK, does this mean that the indoor Marvel hypercoaster being planned in DCA will be cloned and themed as GotG and end up being the EoE replacement in Epcot? I'm thinking that will be the case.

    With all the rumours about Tron in Tomorrowland and a possible redo plus SWL getting built in Disneyland which I assume would lead to Star Tours leaving, could there be a new attraction for both parks?

    Ugh why? Why not get the cars from Hong Kong instead? The gas guzzlers have got to go.

    The name of the "attraction" is insulting. By getting a little too cute, Disney is kind of twisting the knife for real Alien Encounter fans.

    “Look how edgy and cheeky we are! You like edgy and cheeky, right?

    Here, watch the Seven Dwarves wear shades because shades are cool and Disney is cool and hip and give us money.”

    Tomorrowland is receiving lots of new paint recently as a part of an attempt to give the land a timeless, retro-futuristic look.

    The purple wall is among those receiving changes:

    Wall next to Monsters Inc. Entrance has been painted white, presumably as a primer

    The primer could be to continue with the purple geometric shape design or perhaps more likely, to continue this new design (near Monsters exit):

    EDIT: Oh, and they're repainting CoP again. I heard the paint got messed up from Irma, but this certainly is more than a touch up. This is a complete stylistic change:

    They're not done with Carousel of Progress, as I understand it. Those are the base colors for the new design they created a year-and-a-half or so ago.

    Good. I never liked the look of that thing.

    Oops! We forgot that when we cut the plans for buildings near the entrance to Toy Story Land we lost all our gift shops! What'll we do?

    Just close down Sweet Spells, turn that into a Toy Story gift shop.

    But it's nowhere near the lan-

    Just do it!

    (Under his breath) I'll show you, I'll stick a well-themed cart in near the Claw ride, you'll see. You'll alllll see.

    It'll have a gift shop, it's just outside the land on Sunset Blvd for some reason. :shrug:

    And even stranger they’re building a decent sized kiosk/cart just outside the land.

    I find it shocking there's no store inside.
