To them, Future World is just a generic theme park area, while World Showcase is a place they have eating and drinking festivities. No part of that place is really trying to be what it was once promised to be and Disney doesn't mind.
~Yes! Very well said, Tekneek! I totally agree & I wouldn't mind if Disney abandoned the whole "Future World' theme in Epcot altogether.
~Disney if you are reading, please bring OZ to Epcot. I will suggest this every single time. I loved the Land of Oz garden, so don't stop there, keep going!!!

Not only could that be ANYTHING at all, in could be practically NOTHING. It could be a new exhibit in innovations. It could be a overhaul of Electric Umbrella.
The one thing I think we can be pretty certain is in not a NEW pavillion or country in world showcase. These things take much longer than 2 years, so anything in that regard would not be coming in 2015.
P.S. I am all for Epcot getting some love. I didn't understand the overall for Test Track, when there is so much in that park that desparately needs attention. I'm just saying let's not get too excited over this comment.
~Thanks for being the voice of reason & for putting things into perspective. It's just fun to dream a little, even if it's "impossible."
