One could only hope that they learned something from the first opening...
sounds nice as long as the exterior stays. that's why it's so popular after all (:
The exterior was ruined the day they put that track up around it. As well as all that other stuff outside of the entrance.
I was surprised that they kept the original WoM building when they built TT...
Exactly. Horizons had to come down for structural reasons. Disney isn't one to tear down show buildings if they don't have to.
Sounds like Cyber Space Mountain. That's not bad, but I just can't get into simulators.
It's not going to be a simulator.
I would be curious to see what they do with the old Wonders of Life pavillion. What was nice about that area is that it wasn't just one attraction, but several all in one building. None of them especially good, but at least there were a few things to do there before you moved on. Test Track, you ride the ride and leave. I have never once sat in any of the model cars, nor have I checked the gift shop. Mission Space has the play area at the end, less for entertainment, but more to give people something to do while waiting for their party to get off the ride. And now that they offer the non-spinning side, it's family-friendly enough for any age to ride and enjoy.
The whole thing just makes me think: who'd have ever thought The Land would ever be arguably considered the premier Future World pavilion?
The kiddie ride ruined The Living Seas. Not to mention the tank seems nearly empty these days.
Imagination is a shell of its former self.
Spaceship Earth's descent should now be referred to as the decline.
Energy started out as a mess and has gone downhill since then.
Wonders of Life still has a huge For Sale sign in the front yard.
Mission:Space still has limited appeal.
Test Track is a breakdown festival with an increasingly annoying queue.
- The Fantasyland Skyway building - but it's not done yet, and I'm actually forgetting what it will become...
- 20,000 Leagues - the building was still there, but it was demolished except for a single wall to build the new Ariel ride. The single wall was retained because it allowed it to be classified as a remodeling instead of a new structure.
- The Tomorrowland Skyway was only partially demolished, and not repurposed.
Beyond that, it's all minor stuff like the theaters, etc.
But as for Disney spending money for no apparent reason...one only has to look at Flamingo Crossings and Hyperion Wharf...
