    One could only hope that they learned something from the first opening...

    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...

    Of course they kept it.... The costs to tear it down and build a new building would have been pretty expensive.

    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.

    we haven't known Disney to spend money aimlessly in the past...? there were 100 reasons Horizons came down... my favorite one was that it was too small to house Mission:Space... though that attraction building is half the size today...

    Name another show building on property that was torn down to build a new one. If Disney were dumb enough to tear down perfectly usable buildings to make way for new ones they'd no longer be in business.

    Re: Test Track 2012 Update

    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.
    Really, Walt? Disneyland is MY land? Why would I want a silly little land when I can have the WORLD.

    Re: Test Track 2012 Update

    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 structural problems were the most likely that I know of. I liked the sinkhole one. What would you do but just build another building on top of it...yet they still can't build the Venetian/Mediterranean Resort which could generate $$$$$, because it would sink...

    Thought about it, and I've got a couple:

    - 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...
