    I’m so glad we got to experience the Great Movie Ride one last time on our trip in June. We are huge fans of Hollywood Studios and enjoy everything there, at least what is left of it. We didn’t ride Ellen’s Energy Adventure even when it was open so we won’t miss that one too much. It was very evident how much Epcot Future World is in desperate need for updates so I’m glad to see these coming down the pike. I feel like for as much as you pay to spend the day there, it shouldn’t feel like you are transported back to the 80’s (and not on purpose).

      I’m also happy about the updates to Epcot. I can’t wait to see what it looks like when everything is finished.

      Thanks for the comment!


      P.S. Your 80’s comment made me laugh!
