With the massive construction project ongoing at Epcot, it’s hard to imagine (pun intended) that there’s more that could use a remodel. With Spaceship Earth scheduled to go down in the future, and rumors swirling that Test Track will also be getting some TLC, why not put some other pavilions on the refurbishment wish list. Here’s our top 3 choices.
Yes, this one is a given — between a ride that still pales compared to the 1980s version and a placeholder attraction of Pixar shorts housed in the theater, there’s so much potential for something unique here. Just please leave the jumping fountains when you start bringing around the construction equipment, okay?
The Seas with Nemo and Friends
Although I love the queue leading up to the ride, the ride itself is a must-skip for me. It’s Epcot, and I’d like to see real fish, and the ride has very little of that. Unfortunately, sprucing up the aquarium tanks inside is likely to be a major challenge, and with the amount of money spent on the Nemo overlay, it’s likely here to stay.
With updates or additions coming to Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Japan, and America, and with additions or changes made to Morocco, Italy, China, Norway, and Mexico since their opening, is there any country that hasn’t had a whole lot done with it…? Yes, Germany. Don’t get me wrong, the addition of Karamell-Küche is incredibly welcome, but I’d love to see a bit more done with this pavilion. How about an expanded quick-service location? Maybe an exhibit about the history of brewing in Germany?
