    I am praying for Beastly Kingdom in some form, the villians mountain ride, and Star Tours 2.

    I would love to see the Mediterranean Hotel (It leaves such a gap...) built along with a rebuilt TTC (Including Toll Plaza) and the Monorail extended to Disney-MGM.

    Beastly Kingdom, which I expect to win in a blowout since it's the only thing in this list that includes new rides.

    Perhaps Western River Expedition would have been a good thing to put here, too.

    Beastly Kingdom gets my vote here, but I think it's just a little too late for that one folks... still if we could have the attractions that were to be there incorperated into other sections of the part, that would be quite a happy state of affairs indeed.

    From the list, I suppose Beastly Kingdom would have been a great addition.

    If the rumours of a weather pavilion at Epcot were true, I think that would have made a great pavilion -- the right blend of entertainment and information. And it would be great to ride Stormrider in English, assuming it was part of the pavilion. That would an assumed attraction to a hypothetical pavilion which was never built. Erm.

    Aside: Star Tours 2.0 with digital projectors, randomised trips (five or so destinations) and 3D glasses. I mean how amazing could that be?

    EPCOT stands for Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow, by the way.

    And I always felt that the wicked witch in the Great Movie Ride was an amazing AA (but I was young and impressionable). I'll check it out again in September (whoohoo!). The dragon in DLP, though brilliant and very Disney (exploration, attention to detail), didn't impress me that much as an AA. Maybe if it lit cigarettes or something. Just kidding.

    I voted for the walkway, mostly because I wanted to buy a brick and never got a chance!

    I wish they would have gone through with the Beastly Kingdom idea.

    Disney needs to start giving their Imagineering teams more money to build what they see in their creative minds. Not shave away at great ideas until there's barely anything interesting left...

    I don't about soon...I head back north in a few days. But I start CP in August and I have a few days in July that I fly down that it could possibly work.

    I remember wondering this a while back and a little research turned up the following. Is it accruate? Who knows, but it is plausible!

    The real reason the voting booths were removed is thanks to none other than the Cast Members themselves! The story goes like this: The Cast Members at Epcot thought it would be funny if they all wrote-in the same person's name - allegedly of another Cast Member. Well, I guess these guys had a lot of free time, because before you know it, the write-ins got out of hand and their phantom nominee was moving high up the rankings - and FAST! Well, it wasn't long before Disney execs found out about this, and needless to say, they weren't pleased. Things only got worse when they found out that although they could remove the mystery name, they would also wipe out the rest of the 18 months' worth of votes! So, hoping that no one would notice and no one would ever ask - Disney literally pulled the plug on the whole thing in March of 1991!

    What was exactly unfinished about Tomorrowland, was it the abandonment of Discoveryland USA (with From Time to Time connected Astronomer's Club and Flying Saucers) or is it just a finished remodel?

    Beastly Kingdom was what exactly? An abandoned theme park concept or ride?

    Beastly Kingdom was going to be a land at Animal Kingdom, Where Camp Mickey-Minnie is today. It would feature rides, attractions, and shops themed to the mythology world of animals.
