The first round of trailers (or trailer?) didn't make the film look too good. But the recent one has, and this preview is reallllly cool! It has gotten me excited for the movie.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

There's a Tomorrowland Sneak Peek going on at Disneyland as well. Notice what's at the bottom of the posters there.

Well...maybe not as "only at Disneyland" as that says...

I'm looking forward to seeing the movie. The trailers definitely aren't anything exciting, but I'm looking forward to this movie. As for the burnt ends, those look amazing!!!!

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2015/05/exclusive-sneak-peek-of-disneypixars-inside-out-coming-to-epcot-this-summer/

Have you ever looked at someone and wondered what’s going on inside their head? Disney•Pixar’s original new film “Inside Out” takes us inside the mind to find out, and this summer at Epcot, you can go inside “Inside Out” for a special preview of the movie. This sneak peek will offer guests an advance look at a sequence from the film, complete with special in-theater effects and an exclusive introduction from the filmmakers.

“Inside Out” ventures inside the mind of 11-year-old Riley and introduces us to the Emotions that guide her: Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust. Based in Headquarters, the five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy (voice of Amy Poehler), whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. “Inside Out” is directed by Academy Award® winner Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.”, “Up”) and produced by Jonas Rivera (“Up”) with an original score by Michael Giacchino (“The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille,” “Up”).

This sneak peek opportunity begins May 30, following our special preview of Disney’s “Tomorrowland,” playing at the Imagination Pavilion theater at Epcot now through May 24. When visiting Epcot, you can also enjoy the “Inside Out” Emotion Garden as part of the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival.

Disney•Pixar’s “Inside Out” opens in theaters on June 19, 2015.

There’s new music in the air this week at the American Adventure pavilion at Epcot! A five-member, contemporary a cappella group has made its debut at the America Gardens Theatre.

American Music Machine brings a vibrant musical energy to the stage, with performances that convey the global influence of American popular music. The group’s repertoire includes a diverse range of contemporary and classic American pop hits, all presented in a unique style created by ground-breaking vocal arranger Tim Davis, whose previous credits include the hit TV series “Glee.”

Look for American Music Machine at the America Gardens Theatre, Wednesday through Sunday each week, beginning April 29.

Im really looking forward to Inside Out a lot more than Tomorrowland so I think the preview should be awesome.

Idk what it is...but from my trip yesterday to Epcot...I was completely bored out of my mind.

First off...Soarin' is great! Glad to see they are adding an extra theater!

Next...I haven't been on the new test track before yesterday and I wasn't too impressed. Yes designing your car is cool and everything is tron like looking...BUT the queue and the exit were just kind of blah to me. I kind of miss the older version of the entrance and exit but welcome the new modern stuff. With that said...a lot of things didn't appear to be working such as the screens to display throughout the ride which car won basically.

The Universe of Energy...BORING. WASTE OF AN HOUR.

Mission Space...I will never go on this again...well at least the Orange Side. I had the biggest headache for the rest of the day after this ride and I just didn't feel well.

Imagination with Figment...umm...I had no idea what was going on but it was very weird. This is in need of a replacement.

Sum of All Thrills was only running one robot arm...therefore the line was huge!!! Oh and all of Innoventions was basically closed too.

Spaceship Earth had no air conditioning whatsoever.

Nemo is cool but I'd prefer the Little Mermaid or the Haunted Mansion.

World Showcase is always neat to look at. That was probably the best part.

The whole park left me in a state of just boring. IMO they need some more rides and some removed. I believe Universe of Energy, Imagination with Figment, and the Old Body Wars area needs to be removed. Innoventions needs some updating (which it seems they are doing). Also, maybe fit in a bigger attraction like Crush's Coaster in Nemo Area

Overall very underwhelmed.

I'm sorry it was boring to you. I really enjoyed Epcot back when I went in 2007. It was great! I found everything to be fantastic and amazing. And Universe of Energy was AWESOME! That should have been the highlight of your trip! ;)

^^That a very interesting opinion on Epcot that I wouldn't have expected to read from anyone. Some parks are not for everyone and obviously Epcot just isnt your thing.

I personally loved Epcot more because of the amazing atmosphere the park has and how relaxing it is compared to the amount of rides and attractions.

I agree with the ride replacements, but I wouldn't call EPCOT boring. But its also who you go with. Lets wait till D23 this year, I think some EPCOT stuff is on its way.

Don't replace Universe Of Energy. I get a really good nap in there every time.
