    Lightbulb Imagination! Permit Filed

    I got this from WDW News Today:

    In what will probably be the first of many, a permit has been filed to refurbish and change the post show area of the Imagination pavillion at Epcot. This will most likely be the first step in revamping the pavillion, which as spent almost a decade in dismay. These plans have been sitting around for a while, but it appears that the conclusion of work on Spaceship Earth has finally opened the door for this project. This particular permit can be found HERE.

    Good, because everything in the building needs to be changed. a modern version of the old show.

    They need to refurb the whole area-inside and out. Starting with putting the ride back to it's original state.

    I have a feeling the permit may be to refurb the imageworks, and not the ride. I hope I'm wrong!

    I think it's just for the post show, but I could be wrong.

    I had had "Lunch With An Imagineer" at the Brown Derby in September. One of the first projects he ever worked on as a Disney Imagineer was the current incarnation of JIYI. He told us that the ride can never be put back the way it was because there has been a support beam driven down throught the middle of the old ride track.

    I'm hoping for a refurb that brings back the DreamFinder in some fashion...and I would love for Rob Schneider to record the voice soundtrack. How cool would that be!

    I think he meant Ron Schneider.

    Yes, well as long as he doesn't want Billy Barty to re-record lines for Figment.

    I would love to see a modern version of the old ride in place of what we have now which I already love. Personally I never had the opportunity to ride or see the original ride but i bet it was great. I would also like to see them use the whole pavilion like the upstairs area. I would also like to see a show go into the Magic Eye theater other that HISTA or Captain Eo.
