I'm now wondering if Disney, feeling empowered by the extreme goodwill engendered by bringing back Captain EO and the MSEP to WDW, are actually considering USING the Wonders of Life pavilion AS the WoL pavilion and NOT as a World ShowPlace equivalent in Future World (which it should...
I made a guess (because Disney loves synergy), but I was incorrect in that guess. Sorry about that.
Anywho, I wanted to try and speculate why this might not happen till early next year.
I know Randy has definitely been busy with some of the great new Disney music releases we've seen this...
Steve, I agree with you on this. It doesn't seem like WDI took much care to renovating this attraction at all; instead of actually replacing the speakers to improve the sound of the old spiel, they cheaped out and made a whole brand new spiel. I don't like it.
Not that I'm one to complain, but there's definitely some other things on my plate right now, like the Castle S1 DVD and Snow White on Blu-Ray.
I'm more than happy to wait for some Sherman Brothers goodness (unless, of course, it comes onto iTunes).
I absolutely agree with you regarding the use of the 2001 theme. I was totally taken out of the movie when that came on, because I've heard the 2001 theme so doggone much elsewhere that it didn't feel at all appropriate for that particular scene in the movie.
It is just my opinion, however.
I was browsing the iTunes catalog again (as I am wont to do) and I found a few Storyteller records!
Oliver and Company
The Little Mermaid
Toy Story 2
Lilo & Stitch
Hunchback of Notre Dame
None of the classics from as far as I can tell, but I hope the classics come on sooner...
