    OKay lots of news....
    First Disney has confirmed Feb 2nd is the end of Circle of Life film in Land. New show will replace, no idea of what as of yet.

    Secondly, confirmed by Magicfeather and Martin at WDWMagic.com that Brazil will start soon, between Germany and Italy, and to make room they are demoing the Performing arts building back stage.

    Thirdly - IP Locked on UK ride to be Mary Poppins, the IP is supposedly locked now, what ride or attraction is still not locked, but Brave is off the table

    Last but not least - one option for WS - Brazil first then Spain THEN a third Pavillion still unknown. this is just a maybe.

    Thanks for all the updates, very exciting.

    One small thing, any word on what happens to the model train? Hope it is just relocated rather than removed for good

    Actually have not heard at all, but agree with you I would miss it dearly if it is gone.

    I wonder if they would consider putting on the opposite side where the outpost is and just condensing the outpost. I honestly do not like that the outpost exists and feel as though it is a waste compared to the awesome countries around world showcase. To go from China, which in my opinion is one of the more visually appealing countries, to the outpost is just meh.

    Agreed!!

    So we can all agree at this point that Stitch is gonna just waste space for awhile now that it's officially closing? I can't believe they don't have something new lined up before closing!

    I would like to think that Tomorrowland will be fresh for the 50th meaning Stitch would have a replacement but I don't want to get my hopes up

    Brazil is still very much happening according to those at WDWMagic. Work set to begin this year on site prep. No attraction in the plans but of course food and shopping.

    I think Brazil is a great addition to the other nations. Plus, we needed a South American country! Plus, the food is really good. Plus, we can mix it up for Carnival! :cheer2:

    I believe so, but some for epcot may come in time for the 40th there. I will have to dig around and check. Or you can check @rteetz tracker thread here

    I believe the countries might not make the 50th and instead the Epcot 40th. I have to go back and check as some of the timelines I get mixed up.

    My memory seems to have seen various things but I think it was that perhaps one country would be done for the 50th if it was started soon but likely not the others. So based on that and this rumor it would be that Brazil would be done but then Spain for EPCOT's 40th

    ... but it's definitely been changing over time

    Does anyone have a link for this news?

    They have had a lot of time to figure something out for that space. It is crazy that something isn't being done by now.

    Well now with them not closing it again because of the Speedway refurb happening and it going to Seasonal, I wonder if there will be a replacement for it for the 50th and my guess is if there is a replacement it is not going to be a very popular attraction once it opens. I can't see a decent project going into that space.
