Yea this thread has started to get off topic.
Agreed. That list was incredibly unrealistic.It's one thing to have arm chair imagineering ideas, but it's another to actually make happen, especially with the very limited expansion space some pavilions have. You can want something all you want, but it if there's no room for it, it's not feasible. Also, Aladdin has no place in Morocco and him doing M&Gs there currently needs to stop. Putting Aladdin in Morocco is the equivalent of Frozen into Norway.
I do agree that there needs to be at least 2-3 more rides or so in World Showcase, but the shows and stuff in China, Canada and France are all welcomed and The American Adventure doesn't get nearly the credit it deserves. There are a few pavilions that have nothing but food & merch though and I think they are slowly fixing that with Rat and Poppins.
The countries that need something the most are Germany, Italy, Japan or Morocco. All of these pavilions except for Germany have at least Two sit down restaurants with Japan having three. Germany has the most room out of all pavilions to expand and Italy has room only if they were to use the plot where Brazil has been rumored to go. Japan is pretty landlocked unless they go build a coaster across from the backstage road or something ala GotG. Morocco has very, very little room after Remy took over that expansion pad. The small portion left would have to be a flat sitting along the main drag with a tight queue.
I'm all for WS expansion, but this stuff isn't as simplistic as you're trying to make it sound. It's not RCT. Can't just throw a coaster wherever you want.
Not much to talk about, unfortunately. It never got announced and no one knew if it was even planning to have an attraction or not.Yea this thread has started to get off topic.
Neither have standout cuisine. Then again, Brazil doesn’t have a giant standout either outside of the “Brazilian steakhouse” bit. Argentina, specifically Buenos Aires, has the best food scene in South America by a healthy margin, IMO. But even then, it’s just “good”, outside of amazing steaks.New Zealand or Australia would be pretty cool
Was on the table as something that they wanted to happen by 2025 before not too long ago. It got shelved for now, but with India is the real pavilion that should happen and not Brazil.India
The issue is we need to actually worry about WDI going forward with Wakanda. Like, it's not something that they wouldn't do.Wakanda and Aladdin in Morocco. You’re just straight up trolling today
Agreed. And as I said earlier, I’d love Russia. Rhode and his team had an incredible concept there.Was on the table as something that they wanted to happen by 2025 before not too long ago. It got shelved for now, but with India is the real pavilion that should happen and not Brazil.
Is anybody surprised?According to several insiders on Magic (including Martin), this project is currently not moving forward. Apparently gathering sponsorships has been extremely difficult, and Iger/Chapek don't want to pay for the pavilion with company money.
So the ridiculous wait for a new World Showcase country will indefinitely continue.
Disney are stuck between a rock and a hard place with World showcase. Even if they were to pay for it themselves, you’ve got the backlash of every country wondering why they had to pay.Not surprised, no, but certainly increasingly frustrated that Disney won't just spend the money themselves and get some new country into World Showcase.
