I don't know if it's possible to project onto the globe...doesn't seem "projector friendly"

But...if they could do it TEMPORARILY to promote new movies...I actually think it would be a cool idea

They projected Mike Wazowski onto it for Monsters U.

That's a heckuva better idea than "Freezing" the Norway Pavilion....

Thanks...I had no idea.

I thought I was just postulating...but that's a legitimate possibility.

Of course...a Death Star would be grey scale and a much sharper image would be required for the details to show

Quit being such a realist and let us dream.

Thanks...maybe I should apply to Imagineering. Would probably be more exciting than accounting...

And while I'm on the subject of EPCOT, this could deserve a new thread, but I'm not sure.

I read this article, which immediately made me think of EPCOT. Labor and geopolitical issues aside, isn't this in a way what Walt was envisioning?

Additionally, couldn't EPCOT be freshened up with sponsorships/exhibits by the likes of Tesla (might be an issue here with GM and Test Track), Space X, Google, any number of biotechs, etc?

Apologies - but it looks like you still get a residual from me, if I'm reading the terms correctly....
