    That was interesting with all the ride vehicles! We'd seen the submarine when we did the Backstage Tour back in June.

        Perhaps...but remember, Figment is still the official main character for the park. It would make sense to use him for the park's 25th one way or another. Plus, the real question is whether or not Dreamfinder will be back.

          Dumb question but where is the millenium pavillion located in Epcot?

              It's located in Epcot between the UK Pavillion and the International Gateway.

                  In general, between Canada and the UK pavilions. There's that funnel-shaped open area with a pin-trading cart and a coffee/espresso cart, and the (brown?) gate between them is what swings open to allow access to the Millennium tent.

                    I wonder if the model of the Nautilus was the same one that was recently removed from the queue of the Living Seas???

                      Wasn't the Living Seas one about two feet long? I have a photo of that, anyway. Was there a second, much longer model in that queue?

                      EDIT: the short one was on the wall early in the queue. Is my memory playing tricks on me, or was the long one at the end of the queue, just before you were admitted to the circular waiting area?

                        The one I'm remembering was right before the entry into the waiting area, and it seems like it was 4 or 5 feet long.

                          Kevin's article said "There was a Snow White car too, but unless I miss my guess, this one is from Disneyland, not Disney World (since the WDW versions have three rows, not two)"

                          Not necessarily. Years ago, before the Snow White rehab of the 1990s (where they put Snow White into the attraction where she was never seen before as the riders played the role of Snow White in the previous version), the mine cars for Snow White's Scary Adventures used to be only four passenger cars. When they changed the ride, they installed new SIX passenger cars. So, that four passenger mine car might actually be from the Magic Kingdom!

                            Yup, that's what I was going to say! It's the sub from backstage Epcot! Some "warehouse" that is. :cwink:


                            But great update Kevin!
