I'm excited she's known for Spanish music specifically merengue. Makes sense to include her given the growing Latine/Hispanic audience that may feel nostalgia towards her. Looking at Billboard she had a song 22 years ago reach Number 6 in the Latin charts, and she had two albums in the Top 10 for those Latin charts. Seems to have been a hit back when all these other artists were relevant 😅

I know how you feel. Reading down the list, everything was looking promising.....until I saw the ever popular Melina Leon ?, was appearing the time that we'll be at EPCOT! 🤔

"Hey There, Delilah" was released in May 2006 (16 years ago this year). Let's pick "Addicted" for Simple Plan as a hit, that was in....2003! Almost 20 years ago! Excuse me, I need to review these AARP offers I just received. Of course, nothing beats hearing "Get Low" by Lil Jon and the Yin Yang Twins over Epcot's sound system on a New Year's Eve.

Simple Plan's first album will be 20 years old next this year :oops: *Edited because I forgot it's now 2022...

Now you know how we Gen Xers felt when '90s bands started playing F&W. 😏

“Hey there, Delilah” is an oldie.

Looking at the line-up (which isn't half bad, by the way), I feel the same way. :)

Simple Plan and the Plain White T's are playing Epcot. Seven hells, how old am I?

Sadly, this is most likely true. :( Then, I stare at my maple candies I bought at World Market... produced in Canada... and the ingredient list is: maple syrup. Can't expect Disney to match what gigantic behemoth World Market can do, right?

Let’s be real. “Maple-flavored product.” Budget won’t be there for ACTUAL maple.

HauntedPirate30 days ago

Mmmm... maple products... 🤤

They won’t. It will serve maple products instead.

Really hope they don’t plan on making O Canada their apple stand again
