Hmm--each year i wonder whether I'll make it to Food and Wine in the fall. Then they add raclette and some alcoholic coffee drink that's garnished with a donut.

 

Fiends!

All this delectable cheese chatter on the TPR Discussion Board must be pinging its way up cell towers from Orlando to NY's Upper West Side.   Lo & behold, I popped into my fave local 'super deli' - Zabar's - and there, in a HUGE basket in the center aisle, was a humongous display of The Day's Special: Raw Milk RACLETTE!  (Of course, these were the 'solid' sliced wedges....but still....melt some on toast and you have breakfast, lunch and dinner!)

P.S. "Rodents and Raclette"....hmm...sounds like an Off-Off-Off Broadway play!  'Experimental' for sure!

This looks like a wonderful sampling for this year's event...including raclette, YAY!

I hope it's that good (looking and tasting!) when we get there, in a few years or so.

Agreed. Looking forward to my all-time favorites in the amazing combo of Choup and Wild Mushroom Filet and trying the new hotness that is Raclette!

...wow. I was expecting there to be more information on the Future World expansion/re-imagining, but there is SO MUCH that came out of left field for me. I mean, a freaking Mary Poppins ride? Spaceship Earth is getting a redo? Guardians of the Galaxy has a REVERSE LAUNCH?!? I mean, this is insane on so many levels, and there's probably still stuff that hasn't been announced. I can't.

I think the Mary Poppins attraction is more of a walkthrough attraction instead of a ride. At least that is how I am understanding the description.

It's really cool how they're better cementing the themes of Future World. The west side has always had more abstract themes (imagination, seas), and the new garden styling will really reflect that. The other half has always been based on more scientific things (motion, energy), and they're keeping the original building there, which backs up those concrete themes.

 

Theme parks with continuity are great!

Don't rain on my parade of a trackless dark ride through the Mary Poppins Universe complete with a Lin-Manuel Miranda animatronic!

SO many cool additions to Epcot! Biggest ever show to a Disney park? Space restaurant with views from above Earth? New scenes in Spaceship Earth? Very cool! Can't wait to see how this all turns out. Did I miss something or did they announce when this will all be completed?

 

Also, the way they are describing Guardians reminds me of Gringott's at Universal, or am I reading/understanding that incorrectly?

I think it's much more Story Telling COASTER than Gringott's is. I mean, Gringott's BARELY counts as a coaster.

Just that strip of Guardians track that was exposed before it was covered up is proof that this will be WAY more of a coaster than Gringott's

 

All of these updates look incredible. So many updates! I'm aiming to visit WDW in 2020 and Epcot has been climbing the ranks on my 'anticipated parks' list.

I'm actually surprised that they are updating Spaceship Earth again. I figure it's probably going to be mostly minor changes (probably to the descent), but I'm not sure how easy it will be to shift the themes from "information / communication" to "storytelling" without more drastic changes to many of the existing show scenes.

Disney never seems to amaze me, parts of Epcot were created back before today's technology and so it's gotta be tough to hit the reset button and come up with ideas for a whole new set of technology that the future maybe like.
