The Living with the Land boat ride has recently updated its signage to align with the new EPCOT bold typeface used throughout the park.

The new sign is located in front of the Biotechnology Lab, an area of the greenhouse operated in cooperation with USDA Agricultural Research Service.

Sponsored by Bankway Park Bank?

The idea would. I never liked Discoveryland as a name, because it sounds like Magic Kingdom. I loved the mirror of Future World - World Showcase. I think World Discovery works fine, especially now that it is already tied to the park in some level. "-land" just doesn't fit with Epcot for me personally.

Out where I live a bank sponsors an entertainment complex....It's called Parkway Bank Park.......🤨 It's as confusing as it gets..

Only if they build an elaborate, Jules Verne themed centerpiece attraction and then slap a cheap Star Wars overlay that nobody asked for on it

Would Project Gemini's Discoveryland Suffice?

X Showcase is a better naming convention then World X.

I'd wager it would be weirder if they ignored it. It's still a large structure in the park, hence why it's on guide maps still.

Can we all agree that World Nature, etc just sounds weird? World of Nature, or Nature World, makes sense (not that I like either). World Showcase, works, as it is a showcase of the world.

I totally see your point. The issue is the pavilions on each side really don't fit a common narrative very well. I think, now looking more at it, that I'm on Team World Discovery. I think they could actually have the colors transition as you go around the sides. So, you could still have "Nature" (not World Nature) on green signs, "Imagination" on purple, "Design" on blue, "Exploration" on red. Something like that to create some delineation within the park. But, have World Showcase and World Discovery and make it much easier to understand.

With the current structure, I'd rather ... World Gateway. Acts as the park's thesis statement. Includes entrance plaza, Spaceship Earth, Project Tomorrow, Dreamers Point, themed gardens (and please re-add a fountain). World Discovery. Concerned with achievements in technology, communication, and exploration. Should be targeted as a smaller, more concentrated location for modern realization of the old sponsorship model (tap Apple, SpaceX, Chevrolet, etc.). Includes Connections, Creations, Club Cool, Odyssey, Test Track, Mission: SPACE, Wonders of Xandar. World Nature. Tackles the natural world, conservation, ecology, and the natural sciences. Pavilions on this side could be more IP-tied or hosted, e.g. Nemo (Marine Life Institute?), WALL-E (BnL?), Moana, Figment. Includes CommuniCore Hall, Journey of Water, The Land, The Seas, Imagination (re-worked to be about human nature?). World Showcase. Highlights cultures around the world and the (Disney) stories they've inspired. I think that's ultimately more realistic than hoping for them to erect something that effectively delineates the cutoff between The Land and Imagination, for instance.

Kind of like “Future World” - again, lots of energy and cost wasted for no actual benefit to create all these meaningless, silly “mini-lands”.

EPCOT North didn't need dividing up. World Discovery alone would have been a fitting name for the whole lot. They've gone a little too specific with the neighborhoods, perhaps painting themselves needlessly into a corner with it.
