    YOU couldn't fit? I find that hard to believe. I fit in the ride vehicle, albeit a bit snugly, but not uncomfortably.

    This does not surprise me, after 36 years of constant use, the track needs to be replaced. I remember long ago it use to be a much smoother ride. The rumor I have heard is that the general theme is still going to be communication, but the later scenes are going to be updated. Most likely the scene with the main frame and the guy building a home computer in his garage are going to be replaced with more modern scenes. I have heard some of this is dependent on who/if they can get a sponsor for it. Obviously if they get a sponsor, the sponsor will want stuff related to the sponsors products.

    Yeah. It became rather comical. The poor CM kept pushing and pushing to get it to click, I began to wonder if I was going to be able to breathe if he did get it latched. The leg part was fine. It was the body part that was having problems. I kept expecting him to be like "ma'am, you'll have to get off the ride", but then it clicked in. I didn't have any problems after that.

    OK some details on this massive refurb...

    Get your rides in now as this attraction may close late 2019 or early 2020... Refurb looks extensive... All show scenes will receive updates and refreshers... Show scenes up to the printing press scene will not change much and just receive minor changes and touching up... Everything after that though is gone, gutted, completely removed and changed... Some of the additions will bring on the dawn of the internet, social media, and the ever changing world of how we communicate with each other today and into the future, including using apps...Changes will be coming to the omnimover track and ride vehicles, as well as load, unload, and entrance queue getting some sort of preshow element... Project Tonmorrow will be scraped and a new post show will take it's place... Providing this doesn't become part of the new ride entrance queue... We'll see...

    Work may begin end of 2019/early 2020 and take 2 years... Spaceship Earth will be open in time for Epcot's 40th on October 1, 2022...

    Look for Innoventions West to also be replaced or done over, completely... As well as the entire spine of Future World...

    Any idea of a change in narrator? Tony Stark perhaps?!?!?!?!!!! LOL Just kidding -- I know the contract stipulations about Marvel characters.

    BUT, they could have any of the Marvel actors/actresses do narration as themselves, NOT their Marvel character. Sam Jackson? Robert Downey Jr.? I'd say Scarlett Johansson, but she really doesn't have the voice for it. Cobie Smulders? Should be a voice that falls into the middle range, but is clear and smooth without sounding condescending.

    It would be nice if they were ADDING stuff ... not simply changing it.

    Sticking with this Marvel theme, only one I would consider from a Marvel movie is Patrick Stewart... Otherwise, I am not sure who will be replacing Judy Dench... Maybe no one famous...
