    Magic Kingdom:
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think there are any sponsorships anymore!

    Epcot:
    Mission: SPACE - HP
    Test Track - GM
    Innoventions - vary with exhibits
    The Land - Nestle
    Morocco - The Government of Morocco

    Disney-MGM Studios:
    Star Tours - Energizer

    Disney's Animal Kingdom:
    DINOSAUR - McDonald's

    Think that has all of them...

    Exxon-Mobil no longer sponsors Universe of Energy. That ended within the past year, but they may not have removed the words from out front yet.

    From the guidemaps I picked up in May, 2005:

    Magic Kingdom:
    Main Street Vehicles - National Car Rental
    Town Square Exposition Hall - Kodak
    Mickey's PhilharMagic - Kodak
    Some shops and restaurants have sponsors as well.

    Epcot:
    Mission:Space - HP
    Test Track - General Motors
    Innoventions - individual attractions have sponsors
    The Land - Nestle
    Imagination! - Kodak

    Disney-MGM Studios (is it still MGM? haven't heard further word on that)
    Lights! Motors! Action! Extreme Stunt Show - Brawny/Georgia Pacific
    MuppetVision 3-D - Kodak
    Star Tours - Energizer

    Animal Kingdom:
    Affection Section ( at Rafiki's Planet Watch) - Purina
    all of DinoLand USA - McDonalds

    I have been wondering the same thing. I still call it MGM, but at the park the sign says Disney Studios and so does a lot of other things.

    OK, dispute settlement...

    When I went a month ago, it was still called The Disney-MGM Studios. I think it will always be called that, but in promotional videos, radio ads, print media, etc., it is contractually obligated to be called The Disney Studios.

    I try to avoid this confusion by simple calling it the Studios when I'm talking about it...

    The WDW website also refers to the park as the Disney-MGM Studios.

    You're correct, Taylor, but the contract that Disney and MGM had regarding the name of the studio and the use of the MGM lion logo expired on June 27, 2005. See http://www.jimhillmedia.com/mb/artic...le.php?ID=1317 for more details about what would happen if the contract was not renewed. I have not heard whether or not they did renew. Even if it wasn't, it would take some time to remove all the MGM references.

    Dosen't GE still sponser Illuminations?

    Also though it is not publisized much I believe all of the World Showcase pavillions are sponsered by companies in thoise countries, with the exeption of the Kingdom of Morocco which I believe is sponsered by the King. does anyone have a list of those sponserships? I belive Japan is sponsered by the department store that has a store in their pavillion.

    Not all of the pavilions are sponsored. I worked in Canada and we weren't sponsored by any company. Many of the countries are operated by companies from those countries, which allows them to get merchandise, etc. a lot easier. Disney just gets a cut. The CM's in these countries aren't Disney CMs. They are actually employees of these companies. Examples...food and beverage in France and Italy, all of Morocco (used to just be the restaurant, but Merchandise got taken over in early 2004ish), Japan, and I think some of China. Merchandise sold in any pavilion can depend on sponsorships though...eg. only certain football jerseys are sold in the UK because of Adidas/Nike conflicts...no Tim Hortons in Canada because Nescafe(?) is the coffee company. If Canada could get a sponsor, maybe we could get an updated movie!!

    Just updating this thread.

    Spaceship Earth is now sponsered by Siemens.

    Don't know if it's coming back (sure didn't look like it the last time we were there) but Ice Station Cool was sponsered by Coca Cola. I believe the last sponser of the Wonders of Life Pavilion was MetLife.

    Seimens currently sponsoring “SpaceShip Earth,” the nighttime Epcot fireworks show, “Illuminations: Reflections of Earth,” as well as new attractions that will be incorporated into Innoventions both at Epcot and at Disneyland Resort. The Sylvania lighting division of Siemens will sponsor Disney-MGM Studio’s holiday light show – “Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights,” as well as “Disney’s Electrical Parade” and “Walt Disney’s Parade of Dreams” at Disneyland Resort in California.

    It is great to have a good strong sponsorship in place when so many of the sponsors have left.
