    I swear to God, they're trying to take the most nostalgic attractions away one by one. Don't touch SSE, CoP, or Country Bears!!!!

    They SERIOUSLY better never take The CoP away....I would organize a mass protest for that one. I love that thing...I go there at least two times each time I go to Disney...I love it.

    I love CoP....I would be so devastated if they ever took that out. That is such a classic. Whenever I have a bad day...that song pops right in my head. It is wo wonderful.

    Based on the simple fact that they are in the process of refurbishing the theaters in the CoP means to me that it is not going away anytime soon! (whew!)

    it cannot be possible for a coaster in spaceship earth because they would have to take out the track for the ride to put one in. the spaceship earth ride track holds the whole geodesic sphere together if they were to take it out it would fall apart
    i think it makes sense

    While working at Disney I heard rumor of SSE changing some just because At&t is no longer a sponsor. Last I heard they were looking for a new sponsor.

    I love COP, I doubt it will change right? It could use some updates on the last scene though where it is supposed to be futuristic, because it really is not anymore. Walt came up with COP at the worlds fair, so I think COP is gonna be around!

    I Agree

    As the author of Disney World for Wimps, I would be very upset if they changed SE. to a thrill ride. I haven't forgiven them for closing Horizions and World of Motion. ( yes Im Italian..lol) I heard a rumor that there is a new sponsor coming in. It needs a rehab..but not to a coaster!! It is so sad to see the place where the Global Neighborhood was, empty. They have to do something. Plus technology has grown by leaps and bounds since 1982..lets see it.

    Anyone else think Sprint is missing a golden opportunity here?

    Changes can be scary, but without the imagination and abilitly to think outside the box, we wouldn't have had SE or any of the exciting exhibits that draw us to "The Happiest Place on Earth" in the first place. Imagineers have given us things beyond the merry-go-round and tilt-a-whirl. So, while we love to keep returning to exhibits that we enjoy, we have to be willing to look beyond what is the "now" and anticipate what it can be. If you see "Crush" you'll see what can happen when Imagineers are let loose.

    There are lots of CM keeping tabs on what exhibts are "hot" and those that are not. DW is a family vacation and I would be sorely disappointed if they started to cater to just the coaster rider and forgot about those who enjoy a more leisurely ride.

    While at SE a week ago we asked when the renovation was going to begin. The cast members just smiled and said "you never know but we guess that things will be beginning to change soon."

    Since SBC is soon going to change it's name to AT&T, and they want to spend millions on ads, perhaps they will consider sponsoring SSE again. While I am a diehard devotee of SSE I would like the ride down to be changed to something more interesting, as well as the exit area to a high tech showplace. Just my 2 cents.

    Kellpooh.. How much did I love the world of motion and horizons! Esp, Horizons. As a kid it was so much fun to see all the futuristic things that would be around. I esp loved the part where you got to pick the video to watch, whether space or sea. My siblings and I always had a great time seeing who could get their pick in the fastest. And how could you not love the orange smell when going through the orange groves. Every time I ride Soarin and they have that same orange smell it reminds me of Horizons!

    I certainly wouldn't object to adding thrill rides to WDW, just not at the cost of the rides I go there for now. Like SSE. There is plenty of upgrading possibility during the downhill portion of the ride and of course the exit area. But the first half of the ride is a brilliant example of why we go 2500 miles round trip to WDW and never get to the local Six Flags.
    There are many, many people who have little use for coasters. While there in Sept we heard a rumor that the European communications company Siemens was looking into sponsoring SSE, but even though there are many European visitors it seemed a little out there.
