The original plans also had us visiting the Tremaine estate, but at least that experience was to show us the happy ending.
      This all REINFORCES the theme: At Disney they have a captive audience.

        One I do not think has been mentioned: Why is a contemporary record studio at the end of a 1940s street?

          True. But the way I see it, all of these other settings (Caribbean, Polynesian, Africa) basically are all junglie (jungle-ish?). To me, that makes them more complimentary than the desert environment that all of a sudden is there with spitting camels. Just my thought.

              I'm not entirely sure how Nemo in the Seas is a theme violation. And I'm fine with Tomorrowland being a sci-fiction, whimsical sort of a place with Future World depicting real life future. We don't need two lands based on real future.

                      Well what is the Seas with Nemo and Friends? What is Future World at Epcot?

                      Those are two questions, I honestly can't answer those questions looking at this attraction.

                      If you look at elements of the Seas with Nemo and Friends you can say ... yes that is it's thing to look at, or see.

                      Example:

                      Queue: Australian Beach and Under a pier
                      Ride: Trans Atlantic journey
                      Exit: Sea Base

                      Sea Base Area:
                      Animal Viewing: You are viewing from windows in an underwater Sea Base

                      Turtle Talk:
                      You are at a scientific research station that is learning to talk with Turtles

                      Other Exhibits:
                      Play play with semi-education exibits

                      So when you take all the elements independently you can say "yes that is nice, great theme" But when you add it all up to a whole that is supposed to be in Future World in Epcot which is defined on Wikipedia as

                      "Future World consists of a variety of pavilions that explore innovative aspects and applications including technology and science." - Epcot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

                      It just doesn't come together.

                      I could not tell you how the Seas with Nemo and friends fits that theme, or how all the thematic elements make a whole within the pavilion itself.

                        This is like a Disney version of E!'s fashion police-I'll give it a shot. Animal Kingdom isn't as thematically pure as it seems - the Finding Nemo musical doesn't fit the Dinoland theme, but neither did Nemo's hunky predecessor. So the theater in the wild has been in a constant state of theme violation.

                            Does the Mickey Meet and Greet on Main Street count as an attraction? Because he certainly didn't exist at the turn of the 20th Century. To put the time discrepency in perspective, It would be like having an attraction about the iphone in a land themed to the 1980s.
                            It bothers me when people selectively edit quotes to support whatever point they are trying to prove.

                              We rode Space Mountain in Tomorrow land.

                                The Castle Restaurant is meant to be post-film, as is Maurice's cottage. Only the actual Enchanted Tales show you enter through the mirror is time-travel for some reason and let's face it, it's just so they can use the enchanted objects because nobody cares about human Lumiere, just like how they never show Beast's prince form.

                                As for Gaston hanging around his Tavern, nobody survives a long fall like Gaston.

                                      A lot of the technology in science-fiction becomes reality, and others will be real in the future. Buzz Lightyear represents the typical science-fiction hero, and he also represents the cool toys we had in the '90s. I think Toy Story will remain relevant because of all the spinoffs and the fact that people my age are starting to have kids of our own.

                                        lol well I could, but it would be pretty boring, because everything at IOA has a sense of place, and at USF because of the loose studios theme every kind of meshes together. But we could do a thread, but with 4 parks at WDW and endless theme violations, this is more fun.
