Jim and Len on Disney Dish dropped a hint on the name to the new Illuminations show, Windows to the World. They say marketing material with that name on it has been making the rounds.
The 50th isn't some giant milestone Disney can just go to sleep after. Universal is going to be opening an entirely new third park, which you would figure Disney would be responding to.
I haven't heard much concrete about DHS or DAK besides the likelihood of SW:GE expansion, but Brazil is currently lined up to open in 2023 (contracts are being finalized currently) and a new version of IllumiNations (IllumiNations: Windows on the World) is set to debut around 2022. I'm sure other things will pop up too like the Stitch replacement, Star Tours replacement, and possible expansions. Wouldn't be surprised to see a Frontierland expansion after the 50th and the future of Dinoland is up in the air as well.
I really doubt Disney is just going to go back to doing nothing after the 50th. Maybe not as much, but they will still have a motive to keep adding, especially if Universal is opening a new park as I mentioned.
Oh, um, yeah that's why the name rings a bell. That should be changed then...This name kind of rubs me a bit...Reminds me of the restaurant name in the old World Trade Centers....Kind of a strange thing to bring up, I know...But I'm not sure I like the name
What is stopping them from just calling it IllumiNations?
Very symbolic of what's happening with Epcot as a wholeJim Hill also seems to "confirm" (to the extent that such things are possible with a Jim Hill scoop) that the new show is going to be "character driven."
Yes. It's certainly time for something fresh... but not something dumbed down for kids to more easily consume, which I'm almost certain is what the eventual new show is going to be: not a celebration of real culture, but a celebration of fictional characters.Very symbolic of what's happening with Epcot as a whole
IllumiNations: ROE is a weird case for me...I want something new, but I don't want the show to leave
I think, from seeing it so many times, I would be able to trigger the show myself down to the second haha
