Crazy Idea, but what if the Imagination pavilion BECAME an Imagineering pavilion hosted by Figment... Bring Carousel Of Progress Over, Create a more comprehensive Walt Disney and the Art of the Theme Parks type exhibit...and restore the Journey into Imagination ride back to it's former glory. There is plenty of room to do it within the footprint I would think... Imagination and Imagineering should be a the forefront...

Let’s hope they start rebuilding this core team at Disney instead of forcing them out.

I heard Marty and I heard Joe. I'll have to go back and see if I can recognize more. (And of course I heard Walt).
