  1. Excited about a new attraction in Epcot! I hope it’s something on the same excitement caliber as Soarin and Test Track. Epcot is amazing but definitely needs more big name rides like the other parks. And apparently they’re closing Innoventions? That’s a pretty large space they could use. Fingers crossed!
