Fingers crossed for a journey into the imagination refresh (without ips). One of the mysteries is Brazil, wonder if the other is for the carousel or if there was truth about the changes to The land.

Hopefully some info on the spaceship earth refit too

The Brazil pavilion is now all but confirmed with this post leaking the pavilion. The pavilion isn’t expected to feature an attraction, although there were suggestions that the Three Caballeros may be moved here and Coco take over Gran Fiesta Tour. The plot of land is around 1.5 acres and is located between the Italy and Germany pavilions. Its anticipated to open in 2022.

Glad the Mary Poppins ride isn't just a carousel and Spaceship Earth is just getting a makeover rather than being stripped out.

Also glad Journey into Imagination isn't being changed to an Inside out ride (still wish they'd try and restore or revamp it though).

RIP Illuminations.

Was easily my favourite night time show. The finale where they fill the sky with so many fireworks you actively feel it pressing down on your chest was amazing.
