After just going to the park in May, I think the resort is right on target for which areas need attention and new attractions.

I know it's going to be a while before all of this gets finished, but all of these are amazing capital improvements to the Disney compound! I'm Obviously excited about having our own Tron coaster here in the US, and happy to see that Tomorrowland Speedway looks to be remaining in the park for now.

But I love Epcot, and am definitely excited about the improvements to future world. Mission Space is one my favorite rides there and I agree that it needed a better animated movie. With today's CGI, that experience could be improved greatly. Not sure what the guardian's attraction will be . . . but will probably be amazing and the renderings of the old Universe of Energy building look phenomenal. Hopefully Journey Into Imagination will receive some treatment at some point.

The Great Movie Ride was probably pretty good in the 90s, but it seemed kinda tired now. I'm happy with any kind of original Mickey & Minnie attraction. Seeing as you can go meet the characters nearby right after you ride that should help liven up this area of the park as well.

I've got the Disney fever, and after going to Six Flags this past week now I really want to go back. I suppose patience will be rewarded though. Oh and book me a room at the new Star Wars resort and a table at the Mission: Space Restaurant . . thank you!

I'm still not seeing it. :lmao:

Does anyone have any idea about the restrictions between Disney and Uni regarding Marvel character rides? I thought Disney wasn't able to use the Marvel characters on the east coast but the Guardians at Epcot certainly throw that out the window. Really I'm just curious when something's going to happen that would force Uni to remake that whole island. I'm also way out of the loop on this so feel free to mock me.

Guardians isn't part of any of the groups of characters used by universal at IOA. The deal is still in perpetuity though.

I wonder if the new space themed restaurant will utilize the Wonders of Life dome as a projection screen.

So excited for Tron, but...that pathway back there was always our escape from the crowds on busy days. And, does that mean one less smoking section in the MK? NOOO...! A lot of announcements for all the Florida parks, we are very excited. Thanks for the quick recap!

Re: Smoking

Expect to see ALL of the sections eventually phased out.

Re: Smoking

While I would tend to agree as I don't feel there is any need to cater to smokers anymore, the problem is going to be that if there aren't any smoking areas, they will just be obnoxious and smoke wherever the hell they want to. Maybe they'll just keep that one little tiny area by Big Thunder Mountain, or... they can do what Tokyo Disney does and just shove them all in a box! lol
