    Great update, Epcot really needed a restaurant. Yes a ride would have been nice but a restaurant is much better just because it is!
    I actually have been to Morocco and I can tell you this restaurant look exactly, up until the finest details, like nothing I have seen there.

    AK is looking better and better by the day. I love how the Mickey meet and greet is transplanted at the end of the most useless train ride in Disney history. At least now you have something to look forward to.
    I’m actually glad Disney isn’t fixing all the problems the park has. Otherwise Avatar would look strange in comparison.

    I read about the new night time safari. Disney isn’t going to shine lights in those poor animals eyes, no, every guest get a rifle with a night camera sight on it. The animals are tagged with RFID chips and you can shoot them (not for real of course). At the end you swipe your own RFID handcuffs against a terminal and it shows your score in “rugs” and “aphrodisiacs”.

    I’m sure Avatar is going to look amazing. The artwork showed the miniature arches on top of the show building and we know how amazing Disney is making those these days. Sure all the rockwork is going to take a long time but I’m sure the interactive queues (unlike the rides) will look amazing.
    Still not sure how they going to present the tall and skinny smurfs with reproductive parts in their hair but I’m sure they’ll look amazing and I’m surely I will get a makeover in de ni’vetie na’vetie boutique and walk around proudly painted blue with a cloth around my junk.

    Funny stuff Tielo! I was starting to wonder where you were.

    Good to see you back.


    The pink stucco for the spice restaurant in Morocco jumps out into the water almost. They need to blend it in more with the rest of the Pavilion. I think the Imaginenears thinking that the pink stucco will tone down over time with the Florida weather.
