With all the changes coming to Walt Disney World in the next few years, there are some attractions that I hope do not change.
Here are my top 5 attractions that I hope never close at Epcot.
Ellen’s Energy Adventure: Many would call this attraction outdated, but I thoroughly enjoy the wit and humor of this show. Going back in time with Ellen Degeneres and Bill Nye the Science Guy – who could refuse an opportunity like that? I agree that this attraction could use a bit of updating, but I hope that Disney will not change it too much in the years to come.
Soarin’: This attraction definitely has a loyal fan base! Soarin’ at Epcot is one of my favorite rides at Disney World. I love the feeling of soaring over California and smelling the orange groves, pine trees, and ocean air. Although it’s rumored that Soarin’ may be getting a new video, I welcome the change as long as the attraction keeps going.
Spaceship Earth: “If you can read this, thank the Phoenicians!” Spaceship Earth is so iconic – it’s housed in Epcot’s Park Icon after all! I love the cool, dark atmosphere and learning about the past, and the future. I always get a good laugh at the end of the ride as my ride-mate and I see our faces come to life on the screen and act out a possible future as we journey through the last leg of our trip. I really hope they don’t change a thing with this classic attraction.
Living with the Land: Another attraction where you can learn something; Living with the Land shows guests a bit of behind the scenes magic. Providing guests with a close up view of the food being grown that helps to supply the different restaurants of the Parks, it’s a great opportunity to think a little more about where all of our food comes from. Again, I feel that this could use a bit of updating, but overall, I hope the attraction stays basically the same.
Test Track: I was nervous with the last refurbishment of Test Track, but of course, Disney did an amazing job to update this attraction and add a hands-on aspect for guests. I like building my own test car and competing with my ride-mates to see who can build the better vehicle. This attraction will have to continuously be updating as technology and automotive trends progress, but I think that Disney is more than up to the task of making sure this attraction becomes a classic.
