Space isn’t the Final Frontier

I’m going to say something that I never expected to say. Space isn’t the Final Frontier, and nor is it imagination. I think that the final frontier is that of our minds and how we assimilate information to interpret the world around us, but truthfully can you call any of it final? They each just seem like another frontier to me, and another and another, until the end of time. Heck, Time… That’s a whole other frontier to think about.
There are lots of attractions at EPCOT. Tons of them in fact. Some come and some go, others are redesigned, and some are leveled and started over from scratch. We’ve highlighted a few of them this week. Mission Space seems to have a big wow factor that leaves something to be desired the second time out, and Figment’s Journey through Imagination seems like it… well needs some more imagination behind it? You be the judge, but I think these are attractions that are good, just not good enough to stand the test of time in Disney years. That and there’s so much food at Disney that I wonder if it doesn’t need it’s own theme park by now.
On a brighter side, we thought about getting a babysitter at Disney, which I think is a wonderful option one or two times a visit when you have small children. (No guilt, they have just as much fun, and you can get out for a little kid-free time before the trip is over!)
What happened this week on Disney Preparedness:
- Going to mars on Mission Space: would you take the trip again?
- Was Figment a Figment of our Imagination? What actually happened on that ride?
- French food at the Mouse: Looking forward to it.
- What you need to know about the Boardwalk Inn and Villas at Walt Disney World
- Another great spot to check out Illuminations near EPCOT
- Getting a babysitter at Disney
In my mind I’m closing my eyes and listen to the rushing waters of Maelstrom as the boat begins to twist and turn in the darkness…
What do you think is going to be the next attraction to get the attention of the Imagineer’s firing squad? Anything you think could be pepped up, thrown out, or replaced with something more interesting? Interested in what you think of other parks, but mainly I’m thinking about EPCOT.
