    I have some good Epcot Center news

    Found some tidbits at another WDW site:

    - The ugly canopies over the fountainview and commnicore buildings is going to be removed soon. permits have been filed. Hopefully this will include that other strange clutter like those twirly things that were added by Pressler's people during the millenium celebration.

    - Journey into Imagination may be getting a major overhaul soon that will restore the attraction to its former glory. Hopefully within 2008.

    You mean those cool things that help block the sun? I hope not; I've always liked those; I've thought that they should put something similar over the Dino area in AK -- it's so hot there and there's nothing to block the sun.

    I surely hope so, but I haven't heard anything about this. Source?

    What does this even mean? I'd love a new Journey to take the place of the current lame one, but I don't want them to try to reinvent the original attraction.

    Supposedly its a new attraction but will feature Figment and Dreamfinder and be faithful to the original's theme

    OK if you are just going to steal info from WDWmagic atleast quote the info correctly. The canopies are just from fountianview according to the paper worked filed. But people are speculating they are removing all.

    The JII refurb is again one of those millions rumors.
    Kungaloosh!

    All of the Millennium tacky adornments to the Communicore/Innoventions area will be taken down. Right now, there isn't a schedule etched in stone, but that is the formal plan.

    As to the Journey redo, well, there are a lot of rumors going on about that, but nothing to substantiate them, which is why I haven't posted anything on it. Could it happen? Yep. Will it? I have no idea.

    Re: I have some good Epcot Center news

    while I am not super fond of JIIM right now, I really didn't like the original all that much. I love figment but dreamfinder was scarey and he tended to make little ones cry alot. I think it was the red beard. I wish they would use figment by himself somehow and leave the others out of it.

    As long as Figment is in there somehwere, the attraction will be good.

    I never knew anyone who thought Dreamfinder was scary. He had such a jolly happy voice. Kind of liked Santa in his younger days.

    I have always heard that one of the AA's used for Dreamfinder was now being used at the Phantom Manor at DLP.

    Very interesting, I would have to look this up. I liked the Dreamfinder. They used to have him walk around the park with a figment puppet.
