Feasible Epcot Improvement #3

http://futureprobe.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

There was a time when attractions that management believed to be past their prime were simply rehabbed into something different. When MetLife pulled their sponsorship from Wonders of Life, though, Disney pioneered an exciting new concept called Closing The Pavilion And Hoping Everyone Just Forgets It Was Ever There, Despite The Fact That A Giant Yellow Dome Doesn't Exactly Blend Into The Scenery.

Since nothing has been added to the World Showcase since 1988, one might be forgiven for thinking that it is finished, that everything planned for that area of the park was realized in some fashion.

Apocalypse EPCOT: The Dark Future I Just Thought Up

http://futureprobe.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

Disney has closed huge chunks of EPCOT real estate: the Wonders of Life pavilion, the upstairs ImageWorks, the Millennium pavilion, and more. These actions, were all taken when the economy was in better shape. What might the suits do in the future to preserve their profit margins? Come with me now to an apocalyptic future, and I’ll make up the answer to that question before your very eyes . . .

futureprobe: Pieces of EPCOT Center

http://futureprobe.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

There were moments when EPCOT Center would positively enthrall you. You’d be on a ride, and the Imagineers had done their job so well that you were effectively transported to another place and time. Fortunately, there are still a few moments like that to be had in today’s EPCOT, and here they are

EPCOT Center Is Still There (You Just Have To Know Where To Look)

http://futureprobe.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

One of EPCOT Center’s coolest little details was the circular logos that represented each Future World pavilion. They slowly disappeared during the 1990s and 2000s as pavilions were refurbished and updated, but there are still two places in Future World where you can see them, not counting the retro EPCOT merchandise in Mouse Gear.

futureprobe: How Surreal!

http://futureprobe.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

Recently I was reading a thread on the WDWMagic boards about the possibility of Captain EO returning to EPCOT in light of its success at Disneyland. Predictably, someone said “why not just bring Magic Journeys back?” and the folks who replied all expressed the belief that Magic Journeys was too surreal and unorthodox a show for today’s Disney. And they were probably right.

Project Gemini: The Bullet We Dodged (or did we?)

http://futureprobe.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

In February 2003, everyone’s favorite professional Conveyor of Rumors That Are Best Taken With A Grain of Salt, Jim Hill, reported on an ambitious project to totally remake EPCOT’s Future World into a tree-filled “Discoveryland” by 2006. And when I say “ambitious”, I mean “completely insane”.

The Carousel of Progress: Should It Move Forward or Stand Still?

http://futureprobe.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

One of the main criticisms leveled at Walt Disney World management by people like me is that they’re too quick to discard much-loved older attractions in favor of things that are more “thrilling”, cheaper to operate, or that tie in better to whatever licensed characters the Company is currently trying to market. In light of this climate, it’s truly amazing that the Carousel of Progress is still operating.

futureprobe: Why EPCOT Matters To Me

http://futureprobe.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

EPCOT represents something more to me than just cool rides and an appealing futuristic philosophy, something that was weighing very heavily on my mind two weekends ago, when I saw my grandfather for what will probably be the last time.

http://futureprobe.blogspot.comMore from this Domain

This past Saturday (June 5) my wife, her brother, and I headed down to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to experience Star Wars Weekends for the first time. Despite the heat, humidity, and crowds, it was an unqualified blast! The best thing about Star Wars Weekends is the wonderful sense of humor the event has.
