Harmonious? What’s a Harmonious?

ALSO an embarrassment! Where is the indoor climate controlled interactive queue for these things and when are they going to start offering popcorn bucket merch - t-shirts, mugs, pins, etc.?!* *Joking but at the same time, isn't it kind of weird how they do stuff like this or passholder magnets and every single time it's some weird makeshift setup where people are in line all over the place, sometimes for hours? Would seem as if, knowing how this all always works out, that they might come up with a better way of handling it. Maybe that's what they should do with the Wonders of Life pavilion. They could call it the Pay Pavilion. 😏

Don't be silly. They'll be plenty of time to delve into popcorn buckets.

An epic 15 part mini-series on floor tile selection in the gift shop.

Just remember Bob has 60 billion to spend ---------the embarrassment will soon be over (sarcasm)

I Figured it out! Epcot BECOMING.......An Embarrassment! Thank you and good night!

Just checking: Wonders of Life pavilion still completely shuttered and abandoned? Journey Into Imagination pavilion still a disaster with a shortened, embarrassing attraction? The Living Seas pavilion still a nearly abandoned low rent aquarium? Spaceship Earth still clanking and rumbling and held together with duct tape with the Flash animation comedy bits still playing? Morocco still nearly completely shuttered with the main restaurant still closed? World Showcase still does not have a new country added since Ronald Reagan was in office? Is that the theme park we are talking about?

Best way the whole Epcot plan turned out...

I’m normally the negative one but you all are nuts if you think this is a negative. The new entry is much better than the old tombstone entrance. Guardians is much better than Ellen’s Energy Adventure. Luminous is much better than Harmoniius. I have no doubt the new event building will be much better than the mostly empty building it replaced. Moana is much better than the completely empty building it replaced. The new Starbucks, restaurant, and shops are much better than the old Starbucks, Mousegears, and Electric Umbrella. The courtyard full of trees is much better than the concrete jungle it replaced… I hate the big blue building, that we didn’t get Mary Poppins, the play pavilion, and our SSE update, and I agree they could have gone with a better plan to fit the theme of Epcot better BUT what we did get is still infinitely better than the rotting carcass that it replaced. It’s far from perfect but what it replaced was even further from perfect.

Honestly What's with the Title? BECOMING....What? Stangnant? To the people that think this was a good idea to do this. I, and the many many people say..

Years ago NatGeo was good --gave up my sub long ago-- NatGeo has got the way of Disney---down hill

MrPromeyMar 21, 2024

I'm guessing because this is NatGeo that it's supposed to be a documentary but given the subject, I'm inclined to think it's going to be a dark comedy.

This says it all. Best post ever.
