If I had to guess (and this is just a guess) I'd say World of Colour replacing Illuminations.

i just don't know how they would put world of color there just because at disneyland you only can watch it from one side they would have to make it able to view from any of the part of the world showcase but i would love it if it was that!

jeez...soarin is only 7 years old...thats not even enough time for all the paint to have been chipped off yet.

On the list of WDW priorities...i would say a soarin' refurb to be approximately # 867 on the list.

They did kick around an idea to actually build on to Soarin' to increase capacity a few years ago - "alledgedly"...

that would make some sense....as the long line at soarin is kinda counterproductive to the apparent goals of the Nextgen project...it would seem

Illuminations still ranks highly among guess so i doubt they do anything to it

Given the trend of Disney to over-hype "big announcements" its probably just some new limited time magic pins or t-shirts.

This. But oh how I would love to see the Imagination Pavilion restored to it's former glory. Just the perfect space right there. I wonder if it's a new sponsor for that building. Oh now I'm hoping. Hope is never good
